High Sierra Camps Will Not Be Open in 2019

Postby Grzldvt » Thu May 16, 2019 2:14 am

2019 High Sierra Camp Reservation Update
Yosemite National Park has measured the snowpack in the Tuolumne River basin to be an average of 176% as of April 1, 2019. Please note the High Sierra Camps will not open this year due to high snowpack. We are in the process of contacting guests with the option of a transfer to 2020 or a refund.
I think this is the only the third time in since 1985 this has happened.

Yep. And for us backpackers, that also means that the outhouses and, more importantly, the water faucets at the camps will not be in service.

I never really liked hiking through the camps, with their crowds of people, but it was always nice to fill up our water bottles without filtering!
