Yosemite is Open but Services are Limited

In Inside the NPS

Yosemite National Park is open during the shutdown but visitor services are limited.

Wawona Campground, Hodgdon Meadow Campground, the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias and all park visitor centers are currently closed.

Restroom facilities are very limited throughout the park. Visitors are encouraged to stop and use restroom facilities in the gateway communities before entering the park. Visitors are also encouraged to pack in and pack out all trash, as custodial services are very limited at this time.

All roads within the park are subject to chain control or temporary closures due to hazardous driving conditions. All motorists are required to carry tire chains, even if their car is equipped with four-wheel drive, while driving in the park during the winter months.

Additional facilities and areas may close within Yosemite National Park at any time for the health and safety of park visitors.

All normal park rules and regulations still apply.
