"Seems booked?" There is no "booked." Bridalveil is all first come, first serve camping. Your chances are probably pretty good this year. Park attendance is down.

Your link just goes to the main recreation.gov site, but if you are trying to show me reservable campsites at Bridaveil, I already know that it only lists group sites and horse sites. All the tent/RV sites are first come first served. Read the bit under Facilities: on that page. It says: Bridalveil Creek Campground offers group and horse campsites that are available by advanced reservations. Family sites are available on a first come, first served basis and do fill nightly.

Except I have driven by it this year after the campground open on a Friday night, and there were spaces left. By Sunday night the weekenders will have left.

I forgot about that!

You may want to try to get something at Wawona or in the Valley, they are open year round.
