Yosemite National Park’s reservable campsites are available up to five months in advance on the 15th of each month at 7:00 a.m. (PST). For example, on January 15, arrival dates from May 15 to June 14 become available to reserve, and therefore, the full potential arrival window would be from January 16 to June 14.
