The National Park Service is in the Early Stages of Developing a Yosemite Visitors Access Plan

The National Park Service is in the early stages of developing a plan to provide sustainable access, high-quality recreation experiences, visitor safety, and resource protection.

This includes addressing congestion, managing crowding, and preventing damage to resources within the park. As a part of this process, the National Park Service will be evaluating different management strategies, including a reservation system. These strategies will help the park manage visitation to meet long-term resource protection and visitor experience goals and protect the park in the future. This planning process will leverage the park’s already extensive  planning and decision-making portfolio  that sets the foundation for considering how to best meet the goals that were identified in these plans.
