Top Travel Recommendations

  • Arrive early and stay late, and visit Yosemite during the week instead of on weekends. Congestion and delays are worse on weekends, with Saturdays and holiday weekends being particularly busy.
  • Ride a YARTS bus to enter the park.
  • If you drive, park your car for the duration of your stay. Driving from site to site increases traffic congestion and can cause frustration for you and your passengers.
  • Ride free shuttles to enjoy Yosemite Valley, once parked.
  • Bring plenty of food and water for potential delays and stop and use restrooms when they are available.

Whether you’re here for a day or a month, a map is essential to getting around in Yosemite National Park. Yes, there are great smartphone apps and reliable GPS units out there, but we all know technology can fail at the worst times, which makes a backup map a crucial addition to your backpack. Pick up weatherproofed/laminated maps at your local outdoors store or print out PDF maps from our Yosemite Maps page.
