Big news! Reserving a camp site is getting even easier with a new website set to launch in early February.
National Park Service: “On February 7, 2007, the National Park Reservation Service and the National Recreation Reservation Service (NRRS) will combine to provide enhanced reservation services in Yosemite National Park for both group and individual campsites. Campers will be able to use the www.recreation.gov website or contact the NRRS Call Center at 877/444-6777 to make reservations. All previous reservation phone numbers and websites will automatically redirect campers to the new system.
There are also a few more changes taking place. With the new reservation system only credit cards will be accepted.
National Park Service: “Personal checks and money orders are no longer accepted for advance reservations. All payments must be made by credit card at the time the reservation is made. Additionally, reservations will no longer be accepted through the mail.
For more information about the improved campground reservation system, contact www.recreation.gov or call the NRRS Call Center at 877/444-6777. General information about Yosemite National Park can be found at www.nps.gov/yose or by calling 209-372-0200 during normal business hours.”
Don’t forget you can reserve a spot up to 5 months before arrival and I suggest you do. Holiday weekends and busy summer months fill up fast.
