Opening, Closing, and Reservation Updates
How quickly campgrounds open in spring or early summer depends on a variety of factors. Dates are tentative and subject to change.
Tioga Road Corridor Campgrounds
Tamarack Flat Campground
Tamarack Flat Campground opened on June 20 and will close on October 15.
Reservations for 50% of campsites are available up to two months before arrival date on the 15th of each month. For example, reservations for August 15 through September 14 arrival dates will become available on July 15 at 7 am PDT on Recreation.gov.
The remaining 50% of reservations are available on a two-week rolling window on Recreation.gov. For example, reservations for August 15 arrivals will become available on August 1 at 7 am PDT.
Camp 4 will remain on reservations at least through October 31 due to high demand. All reservations through October 31 have already been released on Recreation.gov.
No first-come, first-served camping will be available from May 20 through October 11, 2022. All open campgrounds will require reservations.
Tuolumne Meadows Campground is undergoing a major rehabilitation project and will remain closed in 2022 and 2023 (and possibly 2024, depending on weather/length of construction season).
(Closing dates refer to the day the campground closes; the night before that is the last night to camp.)
Backcountry campgrounds at Little Yosemite Valley and near the High Sierra camps (Glen Aulin, May Lake, Sunrise, Merced Lake, and Vogelsang) are not part of the campground reservation system. A wilderness permit is required to stay at these campgrounds.
