Well, if you are a fan of the rush and want to feel the park with all its activists, then May to August is just perfect for you. But I must warn you, during this time, there will be many crowds, and due to the number of roads around the park that will be blocked as a result of it still recovering from the snow, there is bound to be a lot of traffic.

Another thing to remember is that you would need to be smart about your reservation. Due to the number of people flooding into this National park, it may be difficult to get a reservation in a hotel closes to or even inside the park. The only way to avoid this is to come a bit early, preferably between May’s first and second week. I will suggest that you book a reservation some months in advance; I will recommend that you book about six months in advance.

If you’re not a fan of the crowd

If you are not a fan of the crowd, I suggest that you wait until the rush hour is over. If you are a fan of peace and quiet, giving you the opportunity to connect with nature, I suggest you start your visit in early August.

By then, school students would have been getting ready to return, and of course, workers will also be getting ready to end their holiday. Another plus to visiting at this time is the weather condition. The summer heat is slowly fading away just after clearing out the snow. This will mean that there will be no roadblocks. And all streams and rivers are flowing normally.

And if you decide to go hiking at this time, you would not need to worry about passing out because the weather will be just perfect.


Yosemite National park is one park to visit, most especially if you are a fan of nature. This park is gifted with some of the rarest and thriving wildlife, with an amazing ecosystem. I hope this article helped you know the best time to visit this beautiful park. What are you waiting for?!! Your journey awaits!!!
