Reservations will not be required to visit Yosemite National Park during the summer of 2023, but reservations will be required for entry to Yosemite February 10–12, February 17–19, and February 24–26, 2023. Reservations were required in the summers of 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic and in summer 2022 when numerous key visitor attractions were closed for critical infrastructure repairs.
Planning for the Future
Yosemite has been grappling with congestion—even gridlock—for decades. We want to build from the lessons learned from the last three summer of managed access. Look for an announcement in December, when we'll start seeking your help to design an approach that provides a great visitor experience while protecting Yosemite's natural and cultural resources.
