Yosemite National Park Reservation System Returns For 2021

Beginning May 21, 2021!

Starting May 21, 2021, visitors to Yosemite National Park will need a day-use reservation to enter the park. This temporary day-use reservation system will allow the park to manage visitation levels to reduce risks associated with exposure to COVID-19.


The temporary day-use reservations will be required for all users, including annual and lifetime pass holders. EACH DAY-USE RESERVATION IS VALID FOR 3 DAYS! (NOT 7 DAYS).

Day-use Reservations are available on www.recreation.gov beginning at 8 am on April 21, 2021. Each day-use reservation is valid for one vehicle and the occupants of that vehicle.

Prior to April 21, 2021, We HIGHLY recommend you download the recreation.gov app and set up your account including credit card information.


Day-use reservations will not be required after September 30, 2021. If the Day-use reservation system changes, we will post it here and notify our EXISTING RESERVATION HOLDERS.
