How to Make a Reservation
Still Having Trouble Finding a Reservation?
Another approach is to try to get different campsites each night (rather than one campsite for your entire stay). To do this, change the arrival date to your first desired night, specify that you're flexible for the next two weeks, and change the length of stay to one night. With this method, you can search campgrounds in and near Yosemite all at once. If you're only interested in a specific campground, you can change the length of stay to one night and then click on the date range availability choice (see below) once you have chosen a specific campground. If you don't find availability using these methods, it's worth checking back as often as possible: cancellations will appear on the website immediately.
It's common for no reservations to be available from spring through fall. If you are unable to find a reservation, you can try camping without a reservation.

The Merced River above Nevada Fall and South Fork Merced River above Wawona, numerous small meadows and adjacent riparian habitats occur. Owing their existence to the river and its annual flooding, these habitats help support eight special status animal species: harlequin ducks, black swifts, bald eagles, osprey, willow flycatchers, yellow warbler, western red bat, and Sierra Nevada mountain beaver.
