Experience Yosemite's majestic waterfalls!

Spring into early Summer is our favorite time to see the waterfalls in Yosemite!  Because of a late arrival of winter this year in Yosemite, the waterfalls are still roaring. Not only are the falls flowing, but the animals have been out enjoying Yosemite during our absence and the flowers are in full bloom just waiting for the humans to return.

As you are making plans to return, here are some Social Distancing Itineraries for you to consider.

Okay - so you've figure out where to go and what to do.  Now it's time to determine where to stay during your visit. There's a wide variety of options available through the region; from hotels, bed & breakfasts, vacation rentals, campgrounds and RV sites, and much more!  Click below to explore the options here.


More information to help you make the most of your visit to Yosemite National Park:

There is so much to explore in Yosemite National Park! We have put together several suggestions of things to do in Yosemite to jump start your planning:

  • Yosemite in a Day: The can’t miss sites of Yosemite through the seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.
  • Yosemite Hikes: Tony Krizan gives an insider’s guide to Sentinel Dome & Taft Point Hikes.
  • Fossils to Falls: A 4-day tour of history, Bass Lake, and Yosemite waterfalls.

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention that one of the best ways to see the park is with a little help from a knowledgeable Yosemite tour guide. You get the best Yosemite Park information, without someone having to miss out on the beauty because they're driving. Guided tour companies and adventure tours specialize in making your Yosemite Trip memorable.  

YARTS (Yosemite Area Regional Transit System) is another way to get to and from Yosemite from the gateway towns.  YARTS operates in the southern gateway towns of Fresno, Coarsegold, Oakhurst, Bass Lake & Fish Camp along Highway 41 from mid-May through mid-September. 

(YARTS will begin 2020 service along the Highway 41 Corridor Starting June 22nd).
