Yosemite National Park Continues Reservation System in 2022


Yosemite Falls

Yosemite will once again require visitors to have day-use reservations to enter the park between May 20, 2022 and September 30, 2022.

Visitors who have camping or lodging reservations will not be required to have day-use reservations.

The first batch of reservations for the entire period will be released on March 23, 2022 at 8 AM PST.   They can be purchased at www.recreation.gov. Reservations are required even if you have a national park pass. They cannot be purchased at the park — they must be purchased in advance. Reservations are required for entrance between 6 AM and 4 PM. No reservations are required for pedestrians or cyclists.

Additional reservations will be released seven days in advance of the arrival date at 8 a.m. PDT. Tickets are priced at $2, and they are good for the entire car. Each car must have a day-use or lodging reservation. Reservations are good for three days; and  they are required even if you plan to drive through the park without stopping anywhere. Unlike 2021, no driving permits will be available.
