Yosemite Lottery

My wife got a notice on Facebook from Yosemite that the North Pines campground was going to pilot a lottery system for campsites. I glanced through the notice, I think it said if you won the lottery you got a few days to make your reservation before the sites were open to everyone else. Just letting anyone interested know.

Since Yosemite has closed several campgrounds for the next year, or two for maintenance and upgrades, guess their solution for the desired sites is to have a lottery. Any park,on a lottery system for campsites will never see me there. Itís unfortunate that this park gets so overused anticipate that this will remain in effect for a long time. When I lived in the Bay Area, I frequently drove there for the day. Great park with too many people.

Agree. We decided to try it one more time and immediately vowed.... never again. The traffic and crowds are terrible. Rocky Mtn. Nat'l Park is the same way. They are both too close to large cities. You need to go in winter!

Here's the information for the lottery system from the park's website:

$10 non refundable fee just to apply for the lottery.

5000 entrants equals $50,000 just from applicants. I donít see the lottery going away now after this pilot program.
