If you can’t snag an entrance reservation, don’t worry! There are other ways to get into the park:
1) Plan to drive into the park before 5 or after 4pm; plus, we have sunrise breakfast packages and sunset picnic offerings to help you stay fueled for your adventure.

2) Use YARTS – AutoCamp Yosemite features a YART stop right in front of our property, which means that you can shuttle into the valley and back to your accommodation. If you plan to use YARTS, you do not need to purchase a timed entry reservation. 

3) Our friends at Wildland Trekking Co. offer incredible tour options to help you explore the national park, including a special tour specifically for the Firefall experience. When you book one of Wildland Trekking’s tours, you’ll enjoy transportation from AutoCamp to the park, plus you’ll override the need for any necessary park reservations
