Temporary Peak Hours Vehicle Reservations
Required For Yosemite Until Sept. 30

Due to construction projects in Yosemite, a temporary peak hours vehicle reservation system is in place for entrance to Yosemite National Park between the hours of 6 a.m. and 4 p.m. from May 20 to September 30. This year’s reservation is system is not due to COVID-19, but instead the numerous construction projects taking place throughout the park.

Outside of the hours of 6 a.m. and 4 p.m., no reservations are required to enter Yosemite. Arriving prior to 6 a.m. means having access to the park for the full day without a reservation. Reservations can be made on Recreation.gov.
