No Reservations Needed for Yosemite National Park in 2023
Yosemite National Park recently shared the news that reservations will no longer be required in 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.
Yosemite has been grappling with congestion—even gridlock—for decades and wants to come up with a new solution to keep the park open to visitors, but also protect the park’s natural resources. Yosemite NP says, “We want to build from the lessons learned from the last three summers 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.”
