The mild winter and early opening of the Tioga Road has allowed the earlier than expected opening of Yosemite’s High Sierra Camps.

Upcoming opening dates are:

Sunrise – Friday, June 29
Vogelsang – Friday, June 29
Merced Lake – Saturday, June 30.

Glen Aulin and May Lake are already open.

Located 5 to 10 miles apart along a loop trail, the camps offer a look into Yosemite’s beautiful high country without the need to carry mountains of backpacking gear. All High Sierra Camp lodging is in canvas tent cabins with dormitory-style accommodations. Dinner and breakfast are served family-style in a central dining tent.

High Sierra Camps are reserved in advance on a lottery basis in September for the following season. Due to early openings and regular cancellations, there is select availability for the 2012 season. For more information about lodging and activities in Yosemite National Park or to make a reservation, visit www.YosemitePark.com or call 801-559-4949.
