Between smoke from the Creek Fire, and COVID shutdowns, the valley is a shell of itself at the moment. The visitors centers, shuttles, etc... are not open, meanwhile the gift shop and store remain open (scratches head). Unfortunately the park waited too long to close the park during the horrible air conditions. My advice, wait until after fire season is completely over and don't chance it.

This is truly a special place- the feel of being in the pine trees and meadows with granite peaks on all sides is something everyone should experience. just beautiful. and there is so much to do in the valley. Highly recommend biking easily available for $$ at curry village or Yosemite lodge. took a little effort tof ind it but its worth it.

Been here for a day last August 27, 2020 and NO DOUBT that it’s one of the best national parks in US and it has always been awe inspiring, jaw-dropping, and amazing experience. To make the most out of it, here’s some tips. Right now, it’s on phase 2 of re-opening- so MORE CROWD THAN Its first opening last June 1. Arrive very early. Even after or before hours, the park entrance in Tioga Pass has slip where you will fill up details of your reservation no. Car license plate , etc. Place it in car’s dashboard. Just be honest. Make sure YOU ARE COMING with Reservation. 2. TIOGA PASS is exceptional must pass road to see Tuolumne meadows, Tenaya Lake and Lembert dome, olmstead point etc 3. Do Download the NPS Yosemite app and NPS BIKE APP. Yosemite valley offers 2 hours free bike ride 4. The visitors center is officially closed. You can order outside the center though. Park provided list of items and price for you to order. Wait to be called and pick up your item/souvenir. The village store and grill is open though as well as ansel adams gallery 5. Due to pandemic, visitors are still limited but the crowd was pretty much sizable on our time of visit. But there’s still ample parking space to popular spots 6. Sadly, there is no water coming from yosemite falls and bridalveil falls - so minimal.. 7. Most importantly, bring an equally appreciative and nature loving buddy with you. It can make or break your trip and you dont wanna ruin your first visit to Yosemite right?

I was very fortunate to be able to visit Yosemite Valley with my family. We have visited many times in the past and it never disappoints! If you haven’t been you need to. It is absolutely the most beautiful place I have ever been. It is breathtaking! There are many wonderful hikes for all skill levels but you can see a lot of it right from your car ! There are so many amazing things to see; Half Dome, Bridal Veil Falls , Yosemite Falls, El Capitan , the meadows, Mirror Lake, and the wildlife just to name a few ! There is no other place in the world like it ! I cannot believe that I waited so long to see it . So many wasted years ! Don’t make the same mistake! At least drive through. The view from Tunnel View as you drive in from highway 41 will hook you for life ! It can be hard to get reservations either for camping or staying at one of the three hotels/camps especially in this pandemic but it is worth every effort! It is a place of wonderful beauty and is filled with history.
