When is the best time to visit Yosemite National Park?

                   When is the best season to visit Yosemite National Park? My favorite time is Spring!

Yosemite-Half Dome
The best time to visit Yosemite National Park is in the spring (April) in my opinion! Its such a pretty drive into Yosemite on the Highway 120 , east of Groveland. This week,  travel to Yosemite may be a little tough due to a late winter storm, so you might want to rent a Jeep for the journey!  There are plenty of things to do at Yosemite National Park during this time! Some hiking trails are open so you can fit in a quick hike. Photographing the waterfalls or the snow covered meadows, there’s so many beautiful things to see here!  There is plenty of camping near Yosemite National Park. The Southfork Campground and Sweetwater Campground are nice camping areas for RVs and tents . The best way to visit Yosemite National Park is by the YARTS Shuttle Bus. Sit back and enjoy the view while being driven to all the drop off locations located all around the Valley Floor. Biking around the Valley Floor is a nice way to enjoy the fresh air and great exercise while seeing all the beautiful wildflowers getting ready to bloom. So ask me again, when is the best time to visit Yosemite National Park? I would say spring! This is a photo of my family on April 21, 2019. Always a great spot for a photo and making memories with family!
