The National Park Service (NPS) has continued the contract with DNC Parks and Resorts at Yosemite, Inc. to provide visitor services within the park from October 1, 2011 through January 31, 2015. The previous contract extension expires on September 30, 2011. The park is continuing the process of developing a new prospectus for visitor services.  

DNC Parks and Resorts at Yosemite, Inc. currently provides hotel, food and beverage, lodging, retail, and other services within the park. Hotels include The Ahwahnee, Yosemite Lodge, and the Wawona Hotel. Visitor services include raft rentals on the Merced River, the Yosemite Mountaineering School, and horse and mule rides in Yosemite Valley, Tuolumne Meadows, and Wawona.  

The continuation of the contact was deemed necessary to ensure that there is no disruption of visitor services while the park works on several planning efforts. The provisions of the current contract will not change. DNC Parks and Resorts at Yosemite, Inc. will continue to provide existing services from October 1, 2011 through January 31, 2015 or until such time as a new contract regarding the visitor services provided under the contract is awarded, whichever comes first.
