Yosemite National Park seeks the public’s assistance in addressing its challenges with crowding. Taking to social media last week, the park declared its commitment to evaluating various strategies for crowd management and encouraged the public to provide feedback on several pertinent issues.
From July 6 to September 6, visitors can utilize a form on the National Park Service website to submit their comments and opinions on the matter. Find the form here.
In response to the pandemic, Yosemite implemented a reservation system for park entry in 2020. However, in November 2022, the park announced the termination of that policy.
In anticipation of the Fourth of July holiday, the park experienced a significant surge in crowding, causing distress for visitors who had to endure up to five hours of waiting to enter.
The online feedback form also offers access to additional information about the project, including details about the plan process, meeting notices, and various associated documents.
Yosemite National Park values the input of the public and aims to collaboratively address the issue of crowding, ensuring that visitors can enjoy a memorable and hassle-free experience at this iconic destination. Active NorCal adventurers are encouraged to provide their insights and contribute to the park’s efforts to enhance the visitor experience. Together, we can preserve the natural beauty of Yosemite for generations to come.
