If you’ve been thinking about spending the night at one of the High Sierra Camps you’re in luck, applications for Summer 2010 lottery will be accepted online until November 1st.
Anyone submitting their application by the November 1 deadline will receive notification 30 to 60 days faster than in previous years. The new online reservations system allows DNC’s central reservation office to process applications quicker, and return confirmations more rapidly than before.
Any canceled space will be filled by a second round lottery using applications which were not awarded during the first round. Any available space not awarded during those first two rounds will be filled by phone inquiries on a first come, first served basis beginning February 9, 2010, nearly two full months earlier than this year’s April 1 date.
