  1. What are the most sold-out campgrounds?

    • Hi Niri,
      Most all of the campgrounds in Yosemite National Park sell out through the summer. There are some campsites available (random dates) at Wawona, Hodgdon Meadow and Crane Flat. Lower Pines, Upper Pines and North Pines are pretty much sold out through mid September. You can also use Campsite Assist to get a text & email alert when a campsite in Yosemite becomes available through cancellation.
