Will Yosemite National Park be Open for Summer 2021?


Mist Trail Yosemite National Park

Will Yosemite National Park open for summer 2021? Probably. 

As of January, Governor Newsom has lifted the stay at home order for California. Starting February 8th, Yosemite National Park is scheduled to re-open to visitors, but RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. 

If you are driving a vehicle into Yosemite National Park, you must pay the park entrance fee and have one of the following:

Upon showing proof of your reservation and a matching photo ID at the entrance station, you will receive a vehicle permit to enter the park. This permit is valid for seven consecutive day for unlimited re-entries.

If you enter the park via YARTS (Yosemite Area Regional Transportation System) buses, bicycle, on foot, or on horseback, you do not need a day-use reservation to enter the park. Park entrance fees still apply.

-Credit cards are the only form of payment accepted for entrance fees.

-Lifetime Pass Holders must also obtain a reservation if driving into Yosemite. 

If you try to find availability on recreation.gov and it says reservations are not yet released, it means no more reservations are available until two days in advance of the target date, promptly at 8 am Pacific Time (Reminder: 20% of reservations are released two days in advance).
