For the summers of 2020 through 2022, Yosemite National Park operated under a reservation system for visitors. This was originally due to COVID protocols but then it was because the park was undergoing infrastructure improvements to handle the increased number of visitors.
It looks like the park is ready to welcome guests again as the reservation system is gone for 2023.
Reservations will not be required to visit Yosemite National Park during summer of 2023. Reservations were required in the summers of 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic and in summer 2022 when numerous key visitor attractions were closed for critical infrastructure repairs. 1/3

Back in 2013, we visited Yosemite and it was magical.
And while I was clearly enjoying going for a hike the next morning after light snow dusted the area, Sharon wasn’t so keen on the prospect of hiking in the snow.
While I’d love to visit again, there are so many other places we need to go that it might be a while before we make it back to Yosemite.
At least it will be easier for those who haven’t seen Half Dome and El Capitan yet to visit now that they’ll no longer need reservations.
Just another COVID restriction to bite the dust.
