Yosemite National Park’s entrance fee has been reduced to $25 for a seven-day pass for private vehicles from November through March. The reduced entrance fee aims to encourage visitation to Yosemite National Park outside of the busy summer season. The private vehicle entrance fee is $30 from April through October. “Fall, winter, and early spring are beautiful times to visit Yosemite National Park,” states Don Neubacher, Yosemite National Park Superintendent.

“We are hoping that the reduced fee during these times will encourage people to visit the park and take advantage of the less crowded conditions and the spectacular seasons on display in Yosemite.” Yosemite National Park raised entrance fees earlier this year as part of a national initiative to standardize park entrance fees across the country. The Park adopted a seasonal entrance fee based on input received from the public during the park’s civic engagement period.

Additionally, in honor of Veterans Day on Wednesday, November 11, entrance fees to the Park will be waived. Fees being waived for Veterans Day include the Park entrance only. All other fees associated with camping, lodging, or activities within the Park are not waived. The fee waiver is good for Wednesday, November 11, Veterans Day, only. Yosemite National Park receives more than four million visitors each year, with many visitors coming to the Park during late spring and throughout the summer.

Yosemite National Park is open 365 days a year and offers ranger-led programs and activities yearround. Visitors coming to the Park should carry tire chains in their vehicles during the fall and winter seasons. – –end of Park statement.
