Date: January 29, 2021

Beginning February 8, 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 senior pass holders. Each reservation is valid for seven days and must be validated the first day of the reservation.

Reservations are available on beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, Feb. 1. Each day-use reservation is valid for one vehicle and the occupants of that vehicle. For more detailed information, please visit:

For visitors staying inside the park, at the Ahwahnee Hotel, Yosemite Valley Lodge or Upper Pines Campground, day-use reservations are included with overnight lodging reservations.   

The reservation system will be in effect until local public health conditions improve.  

The health and safety of park visitors, employees, and partners continues to be our number one priority.
