Hey GYCO members. This isn't a meetup, but a request to help secure campsites in Yosemite for the summer season.
Reservations are required March 15 through November for Yosemite Valley's car campgrounds and summer through fall for Hodgdon Meadow, Crane Flat, Wawona, and half of Tuolumne Meadows.
Campground reservations are available in blocks of one month at a time, for five months in advance. Reservations open on the 15th of each month at 7 am Pacific time.
Be aware that nearly all weekend reservations are filled seconds or minutes after 7 am!
Make sure you've created an account ahead of time and familiarized yourself with the site. Make a campground reservation at 7 am on the 15th of each month.
Also make sure to set your alarm the night before so you don't sleep in like I've done many times.
Pro-Tip: If you have a Yosemite or National Park Pass you get 50% off all campsites. So make sure you know the pass number and look for it when checking out on the registration site. (Extra Bonus Tip: The site doesn't verify if your pass has expired. I mean, so I hear. I'd never try something like that)
When you get a site let us know. The hope is we can set up a meetup around your campsite – of course you would be the host and expected to go ;)
Thanks in Advance
PS, oh and feel free to use the comments space to ask questions about the registration process.
