The Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort is open! June Bug Cafe is open. Yosemite Health Spa opens on October 1st with restrictions in place only for friends/family of six only for 1 to 1.5 hour reservations. See our Covid-19 Standards.
To get the Yosemite National Park Entrance Permits for the very limited 1700 new vehicle entry restrictions daily go to RECREATION.GOV to book tickets. Remember 80% of the permits are available starting on the 1st of each month for the NEXT month and 20% of the permits are available 48 hours before arrival. We have seen a huge uptick in availability for these permits so more have added to the Rec.gov site and remember it says the permit system ends October 31st. Just keep checking until then! So remember November 1st and on the Park operates as usual with no permits needed for entry.
As an alternative YARTS Yosemite Bus stops at the end of our driveway, BOOK YARTS TICKETS into Yosemite round trip without the Yosemite Entrance Permit requirement. There are unused seats kept for locals and park employees that are NOT used up so it’s fairly easy to walk-on the bus.
BEST YET you can also skirt the Yosemite Reservation Permit contacting Incredible Adventure Tours for a BEST OF YOSEMITE or a HIGH COUNTRY TOUR or the less service less expensive drop off ORIENTATION TOUR by calling 1-800-777-8464 and tell them you are staying at the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort! These guides know what they are doing.
Under a grove of oak and pine in our own small valley with a stream, the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort offers a magical scene with cabins on stilts dotting the mountainside where walking is part of the experience. This old camp dates from the 1930’s and we now offer private hotel style rooms in cabins, tent cabins, hostel cabins, house rentals along with group facilities, a health spa and a highly regarded restaurant. You will encounter backpackers, young families, and outdoor adventurers in this fun place just 27 miles downstream from Yosemite Valley itself.
