Update: Yosemite National Park


The National Park Service will again be requiring reservations to drive into Yosemite National Park from May 20 through September 30, 2022, for those driving into the park between 6am and 4pm.

Tickets go on sale March 23rd, 2022

Details are updated regularly on the Park Service’s website, and here are our key highlights at-a-glance, including exceptions to the program:

  • Yosemite Day Use Entry Tickets can be found on recreation.gov and go on sale each day at 8 am Pacific Time, and it’s best to make purchase your Day Use Entry Ticket for “Yosemite National Park Ticketed Entry” online as far in advance as possible.

  • Last minute travelers: While most Day Use Entry Tickets will be sold in advance, the Park Service will release 20% of them for purchase within 48-hours of arrival day on a first-come first-served basis at recreation.gov.

  • Even if you have a National Park Pass, you will need to reserve a Day Use Entry Ticket on recreation.gov in order to enter the park.  You won’t have to pay the entrance fee a second time, just a $2 processing fee.

  • Park Entrance Passes are good for 3 days, visitors will NOT be required to validate at the gate on the first day of their reservation.

  • Shuttle service is not available in/out of the park right now, but we are actively working with regional partners in search of a solution.

  • Yosemite’s free shuttle service

  • Unfortunately we are not able to obtain passes for our guests to drive their own cars in/out of the park.  However you do not need a Day Use Ticket if you’re participating in one of our guided adventures with Echo Adventure Cooperative.
