It is open 365 days a year, regardless of weather conditions. That said, the best time to visit the here is, without question, during the summer. Many popular campgrounds and attractions are seasonal and operate for a short time only. If you wish to avoid the crowds, late spring and early fall are also nice. But, you may run into a little rain; so, pack accordingly. Temperatures reach below freezing from November through April and the park is far less busy, bringing in only 23% of the average annual visitors during this half of the year.
The Park is about 1,200 square miles in size and there isn’t a convenient address to input into your GPS. Still, most visitors drive here. From the south, you take the I-5 north to Highway 99 north to Highway 41 north into Yosemite National Park. From the north, you take Highway 99 south to Highway 120 east to Highway 140 east. Amtrak provides a combination of trains and buses to get here. Or, you can take a Greyhound bus into the city of Merced and complete your journey using the Area Regional Transportation Systems (YARTS).
Strapped for cash? No problem! You can save a fair amount of money during your trip by planning ahead. Once you are within the park, you will find much higher gasoline prices. Fill up your tank before entry and you should have no problem getting in, getting around, and getting out without getting fleeced at the pump.
Popular activities in Yosemite National Park include hiking, rock climbing, photography, bird watching, stargazing, and participating in ranger-led programs.
