Snow Blankets all of Mono County

Sunset in Bridgeport, CA – January 13, 2023

The start of 2023 in Mono County has been beyond impressive so far. From the end of December and through most of January, Mono County was pummeled with gigantic amounts of snow, measuring several feet at a time. The massive amount of snow coupled with cold temperatures (-27 recorded in Bridgeport on January 21, 2023), have left deep pillows of snow on the ground throughout all of Mono County.

So much snow gives reason to celebrate for not just snow enthusiasts, it will also make for a great spring and summer. The snowmelt will help fill the natural lakes and streams, which is especially exciting as we count down to April 29, the opening day of regular fishing season. We’re also looking forward to a beautiful wildflower and waterfall viewing season ahead.

Reservations for campgrounds and trailheads are now open, up to 6 months in advance, on – make sure to grab a spot for summer and fall visits!

Our new 2023 Visitor Guide is also available online and by mail to help plan your visit! If you have any questions, please reply to this email or give our office a call at 800-845-7922.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

No Reservation Needed (for now)

Yosemite National Park (YNP) announced that reservations will not be required to visit the park during the summer of 2023.

YNP has kicked off an extensive visitor access plan to address congestion, managing crowing, and preventing damage to resources within the park.

As a part of this process, the National Park Service will be evaluating different management strategies, including a reservation system. They are seeking your help to design an approach that provides a great visitor experience while protecting Yosemite’s natural and cultural resources.

Learn more about the Visitor Access Management Plan.

Additional public comment periods will be available in the near future.
