Yosemite Hospitality Updates

Please take a moment to review our safety and cleaning enhancements below. In consultation with the National Park Service, as part of our commitment to creating a safe, enjoyable experience during your visit, some services and operations have been modified and adjusted to protect against the spread of COVID-19.

NPS PUBLIC HEALTH UPDATE: Masks are required for everyone in all park buildings and enclosed public transportation, regardless of vaccination status. Learn more at https://www.nps.gov/aboutus/news/public-health-update.htm


Peak-Hours Reservation System 2022


Beginning Friday, May 20, 2022, Yosemite National Park will implement a temporary peak-hours reservation system.

Building on lessons learned during the summer reservation systems in 2020 and 2021, the peak hours reservation system is designed to spread visitation out and reduce chronic congestion in the park. The reservation requirement will be in place through September 30, 2022.


Lodging:
Please note guests with reservations at in-park lodges (The Ahwahnee, Curry Village, Wawona Hotel, Yosemite Valley Lodge, Housekeeping Camp) do not need a peak-hour reservation to enter the park May 20, 2022 - September 30, 2022. Guests at those lodges will be required to show proof of reservation at the gate.

All overnight lodging guests will be allowed entrance but MUST show a confirmed lodging reservation and copy of the reservation holders’ ID upon entrance. Guests can show a copy of the reservation on their phone or a printed copy. Please be aware that cellular service is limited in the park, so printing or taking a screenshot of your reservation prior to entering the park is recommended.

Yosemite Mountaineering School:
Visitors who have booked a guided climb, hike, or backpacking trip with Yosemite Mountaineering School do not need a peak-hour reservation to enter the park.

Activities & Dining (Peak-Hours Reservation Required):
- Visitors who book a dining reservation at The Ahwahnee Dining Room or Mountain Room must obtain a peak-use reservation if they plan to enter the park prior to 4 pm. Park entrance fees are still required.
- Visitors who book a Valley Floor Tour will also need to obtain a peak-use reservation to enter the park prior to 4 pm
