Yosemite National Park to Welcome Public Input and Stakeholder Collaboration

Park seeks solution to fulfilling visitor experiences while protecting natural resources

Yosemite National Park's surprise Tweet earlier this week announcing the decision to discontinue the reservation system for vehicle entrance during the 2023 peak season was met with both cheers and disappointment.

The tourism and hospitality industries have lost millions the past three years as a result of both the pandemic and Yosemite National Park's vehicle reservation system.
