Yosemite National Park is open! no entry reservations required

Digital Park Pass
Yosemite National Park has announced their Digital Park Pass. We encourage you to purchase it before you arrive at Yosemite. This, along with arriving early to the park, will help with traffic flow and create a seamless experience for your adventure. Early entry is recommended to avoid long waits at the entrance stations. If you can, try to enter the park before 7:00 AM.
Visit https://www.recreation.gov/sitepass/74296 to select the pass type that suits you best, then print or download the digital pass. In the park, connectivity is limited, and you must be able to display your pass at any point.
Visiting Yosemite in a rental car and don’t know your license plate number? Fear not. You can select ‘rental car’ under car type on the online form.
While waiting in line, get your pass and ID out to show a ranger. Turn up the brightness of your screen to help them see the digital pass.
You are, of course, welcome to purchase your pass at an entrance station upon arrival. However, pre-purchasing helps our friendly keepers of the gates get you on your way to your next hike faster. Another option is to skip the wait entirely by booking a Yosemite 360 Tour with us!
