rec.gov reservation site was emptied out fast this morning

Postby ctfshjohn » Mon Mar 15, 2021 7:19 am

Ive been booking since 2015 ive never seen it sell so fast.
sold out everything by 707 am.
i did get lucky, booked 2 different res, stitched them together, tent only site.
8/9 to 8/14 and 8/14 to 8/21 for TM.
i usually book the last 2 weeks of sept, so maybe august goes quicker usually ??
i was curious if this was the case, any input is appreciated.
also was curious what it would be like since we are in a pandemic .
hopefully anyone else trying had good luck this morning as well.
its 715 and someone just tossed back 7/15 to 7/20 into the mix.
wonder how long that will last - 30 seconds- gone now.

Not surprised at all. TM is the only open campground in the park on Tioga Rd this year. It's going to be an "interesting" year.

Yes it is, We've made three backpacking reservations in the Sierra for this summer, but NONE of them are on well-known trails or lead to well-known destinations. Those were all gone by the time we tried.

Not entirely bad news...we should get some solitude.

I found the same thing, thought I would reseerve my annual Glen Aulin Trip and everything is booked. I suspect a fair number of people will either cancel or be no shows. I did get my party to Young Lakes via Glen Aulin, but we will arrive at the Kiosk to see if we can get a permit for where we want.

Note that the High Sierra Camps, Tuolumne Lodge, White Wolf, Lodge, and all the campground along Tioga Road will be closed this summer except for the Tuolumne Meadows campground itself--and that is by reservation only.

A lot fewer people are going to be able to spend the night in the park this summer.
