You Can Visit Yosemite National Park Next Year Without a Reservation

November 17, 2022

Yosemite officials initially implemented a reservation system in 2020 as the pandemic drove record numbers of visitors to the park, and later renewed the program through 2021 and 2022 as crowds remained sizable. Other parks followed suit—Arches, Glacier, Zion Rocky Mountain, Shenandoah, and even Acadia requiring visitors to book their visit days or weeks in advance. With pandemic closures receding and crowds expected to follow suit, the NPS says it’s high time to open up to walk-ins once again. Outside Online
