Yosemite Park still open to visitors despite fire (video)

Most of Yosemite National Park is not affected by the fire and is relatively smoke-free. The northern part of the park is experiencing minor smokiness. Conditions may change if winds shift. However:

The Big Oak Flat Road (the continuation of Highway 120 inside Yosemite) and Highway 120 west of Yosemite are closed between the Highway 49 south junction (outside the park) to Merced Grove (inside the park; Merced Grove is open).

If you are trying to get to Yosemite from the west, use Highway 140 from Merced. You may also enter Yosemite via Highway 41 from the south and 120 from the east (Tioga Pass).

Hetch Hetchy and Evergreen Roads are closed.

Hodgdon Meadow Campground and Hetch Hetchy Backpackers’ Campground are closed. (All other campgrounds in Yosemite are open.)

All other roads are open. Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point, Wawona, Mariposa Grove, Crane Flat, and Tuolumne Meadows areas are all open.
