About Visit Yosemite | Madera County


The Southern Yosemite Visitors Bureau was formed in 1985 and operated as the Yosemite Sierra Visitors Bureau for 30 years.  The Bureau was established by a group from the Eastern Madera County Chamber of Commerce with a vision of the growing potential for drawing the millions of visitors to Yosemite National Park to the many businesses and attractions in Madera County.  In 2015 the visitor’s bureau changed its name to Visit Yosemite | Madera County to more accurately reflect its mission to promote all there is to see and do in Yosemite and Madera County.

Our Mission

The mission of the Visit Yosemite | Madera County is to increase year-round tourism in Madera County through awareness of the county's commercial and natural resources, its entertainment, recreational, cultural and educational opportunities.

What We Do
