Camping Reservations

 

Learn and Explore

Yosemite National Park has 13 popular campgrounds, of which up to seven are on a reservation system. From April through September, reservations are essential and even the first-come, first-served campgrounds usually fill by noon (often earlier) from April through September.

Campground Reservations

Reservations are required all year for Yosemite Valley's car campgrounds and summer through fall for Hodgdon Meadow, Crane Flat (closed in 2022), Wawona, and half of Tuolumne Meadows (closed in 2022). In 2022, reservations were also required for Tamarack Flat, White Wolf, and Yosemite Creek. Reservations for Camp 4 are required through October 31. Reservations are available in blocks of one month at a time, up to five months in advance, on the 15th of each month at 7 am Pacific time. Be aware that nearly all reservations for the months of May through September and for some other weekends are filled the first day they become available, usually within seconds or minutes after 7 am!

 

For your best chance of getting a reservation, be sure your clock is set accurately and start the first few steps of the reservation process at www.recreation.gov before 7 am Pacific time. You can find more help making reservations and other frequently asked questions.

Through October 31, 2022 space at Camp 4 is available only by reservation.
