Utah to Yosemite

We just entered the lottery for a campsite in Yosemite. If we get lucky enough to get a reservation, we would be traveling from Salt Lake City Utah, pulling a 22 foot Travel trailer. What is the best route, to avoid long steep grades and switchbacks? Anyone towed there from Utah?
TIA for any advice or suggestions.

I would recommend entering Yosemite on either Hwy 140 from the west or Hwy 41 from the south. So if you're in northern Utah just run across 80 to Sacramento and then south on Hwy 99 to Hwy 140.

If you're not successful in getting a campsite in Yosemite Park, you may want to look at a forest service campground 1 1/2 miles outside of the park's south entrance on Hwy 41 called Summerdale Campground. When we lived in California, we camped there often. You should have room for a trailer of your size. It looks like you are able to reserve sites there now.

We live near Yosemite and go to Salk Lake City every two years for a family reunion.

Crabby's advice is perfect...that's the route I'd recommend too.

Above suggestions are great. In addition, it is critical that you check the routes before and during your trip. We just received notice that they are going to close the road to Glacier Point (not on your route) but there will be other major construction projects going on.
