Yosemite National Park Requires Day-Use Reservations Starting February 8

Visitors to Yosemite National Park will need a day-use reservation to visit the park starting Monday, February 8, 2021. The reservation system is temporary and will allow the park to manage visitor levels and reduce pandemic-related risks.

Day-use reservations will be required for all park visitors including annual and senior pass holders. Each reservation is valid for seven days and must be validated on the first day of the reservation. 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.   

Reservations will be available starting at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, February 1 at Each day-use reservation is valid for one vehicle and the occupants of that vehicle. Additional information to plan your visit can be found at

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. During this time, some services and facilities are limited, and shuttles are not operating.

The reservation system will be in effect until local public health conditions improve.  For more details on Yosemite National Park, visit
