You no longer need a reservation to visit Yosemite National Park

Starting in the summer of 2023, reservations will no longer be necessary to visit Yosemite National Park in California. This system was implemented in the summers of 2020 and 2021 to handle visitor numbers at the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic. In 2022, it was preserved due to infrastructure works between the end of May and September. Located 3.5 hours from San Francisco and 6 hours from Los Angeles, Yosemite covers an area of ​​3,000 km² and is one of the most visited parks in the United States.

Some visitors on Twitter lament the end of this reservation system, which limits the risk of overcrowding. “Please keep reservations in place and limit the number of visitors.– writes one. “This system gave us the most epic trip to Yosemite. No traffic, no queues, peace and quiet throughout the park– says another.

The National Park Service (NPS), which manages America’s national parks, promises to launch a consultation in December to gather visitor complaints about the site’s access conditions. “Yosemite has struggled with congestion for decades. We want to build on the lessons learned from the past three summers of managed access,” according to the NPS website. Other national parks have recently introduced visitor permits (Glacier National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, etc.), but have not announced whether or not they will extend the measure into 2023.

Although reservations are no longer required, visitors driving to Yosemite must pay a $35 entrance fee (valid for seven consecutive days). Tolls for pedestrians and cyclists have been reduced to $20.
