It seems like it’s been the longest 16 days ever, but we’re so happy to share that Yosemite National Park is 100% OPEN.

News is traveling that many agencies are going to take some time to reopen and get everything back on track, but that is definitely not the case for our beautiful park. Our District Ranger informs us that rangers were out last night changing the signs (see more photos on our Facebook page), removing barriers, and opening gates. This past weekend it was declared that services located on through roads in national parks could reopen during the shutdown. Our neighbors at the Wawona Hotel quickly went to work and by the evening of October 12, the hotel was lit up and taking reservations.

Donna Davis, our very own General Manager here at The Redwoods In Yosemite, is eager to give everyone an opportunity to enjoy what we’ve all been missing by extending the ‘Four Nights for the Price of Two” special through November 21. “We are pleased to be able to once again offer our guests all that Yosemite has to offer in the Fall. What a wonderful time of year to visit with the beautiful colors and crisp mountain air,” she says. Find out more by visiting

You may still run into a bit of excitement at the South gate as construction on the new entrance to the park continues, but Redwoods guest Julie from San Diego says, “Nothing is going to keep us from finally being able to fully enjoy this magical place.”
