CA: Yosemite National Park announces launch of pilot daily lottery

Listen to this story

MARIPOSA, Calif. — Yosemite National Park announces that a new pilot lottery program for Camp 4 Campground will launch on May 21. This daily lottery system will be operated through Recreation.gov and will help improve the visitor experience at Camp 4 Campground.

Camp 4 Campground is a walk-in campground and the only first-come, first-served campground in Yosemite Valley. Visitor demands for a camping space at Camp 4 have been increasing over the past decade and the current registration system no longer serves the public and meets the needs of current campers. Under the current system, campers have to line up and wait for a first-come, first-served camping space to open.

    Why show a photo of Yosemite Valley taken from Tunnel View rather than a photo of Camp 4 to accompany the article? Journalism 101!

      I don’t know Jean. It’s not our article. We simply linked to another publication’s story because we though some of our readers might enjoy it. I’ll see if we can add some funds to the budget to fly directly to all the 200 story locations we cite every week to verify that other publications are using the right images in their stories. That way we’ll be doing our due diligence as journalists.
