DAY-USE RESERVATIONS

Park Entry Reservation RequirementsBeginning Friday, May 21, visitors to Yosemite National Park will need a day-use reservation to enter the park. The temporary day-use reservation system will allow the park to manage visitation levels to reduce risks associated with exposure to COVID-19.

Day-use reservations will be required for all users, including annual and lifetime pass holders. Each reservation is valid for 3 days.

Day-use reservations are included for all visitors staying overnight in the park. This includes reservations for The Ahwahnee, Yosemite Valley Lodge, Curry Village, Wawona Hotel, Housekeeping Camp, and NPS-managed campgrounds. Day-use reservations are also included for all visitors with wilderness and Half Dome permits and visitors entering the park via YARTS buses and on permitted commercial tours.

Reservations are available on www.recreation.gov beginning at 8 am on April 21, 2021. Each day-use reservation is valid for one vehicle and the occupants of that vehicle.

For more detailed information, please visit: https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/covid19.htm 

NOTICE: Please bring a copy of your lodging reservation inside the park to show the ranger at the entrance gate. Please note there is no internet connection at the gate, so have a printed version of the confirmation or download a copy on your phone in advance of your travel. You will still need to pay any applicable park entrance fees.
