Yosemite’s ‘Peak Hour’ Reservations Are Now Available. Here’s How to Get One.

Yosemite National Park is changing the game for visitors this year with the introduction of a new pilot reservation system called “Peak Hours Plus.” Aimed at reducing overcrowding and making trips more enjoyable, the system kicked off in January, giving adventurers a shot at snagging a coveted spot.

As of mid-March, following a month of busy activity due to the coveted Yosemite “Firefall,” there are still plenty of reservations available during the popular times of year in the park.

Under the “Peak Hours Plus” plan, anyone looking to explore Yosemite by car during the busy weekends and holidays needs to lock in their reservation. This rule applies from 5 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the periods of April 13 to June 30, and again from August 17 to October 27. For those summer days from July 1 to August 16, a reservation is needed every single day.

The system is currently live, with slots open for all specified dates. This is your golden ticket to ensure you don’t miss out on Yosemite’s natural wonders due to the crowd.

If you’re planning to visit after 4 p.m., breathe easy—no reservation needed. Likewise, guests with bookings for Yosemite Valley, Wawona, and other select accommodations, as well as those with wilderness or Half Dome permits, or camping spots, are all set without needing an extra vehicle reservation. Bus tour enthusiasts are also in the clear.

To secure your Yosemite visit, check out this website at recreation.gov. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by—make your reservation and ensure your Yosemite adventure is as majestic as the park itself!
