Roads Reopen in Yosemite National Park
Almost all roads leading into Yosemite National Park have reopened after being closed due to snow, ice, and fallen trees. Highways 120 (Big Oak Flat Road) and 140 (El Portal Road) were reopened at 8:00 a.m. this morning. Highway 41 (Wawona Road) is also open from Yosemite Valley to Chinquapin but remains closed south of Yosemite West to Wawona due to fallen trees.

Unrestricted camping is no longer allowed in Yosemite Valley because of damage it causes. The placement of campgrounds and campsites has changed over the past 75 years in response to a growing understanding of river dynamics, geologic hazards, and the park's natural and cultural resources.
