You can also post a "wanted" ad as others have recently.

Good luck!
I checked with NPS and they advised to flag reservations for sale, which I did with this one. Needless to say buying a scalped reservation hurts people who want find a spot the right way by reducing the amount of available sites.

I think we should hunt down the scalpers, pour something sweet and sticky over their cahones and stake em down to an ant hill.

Anyway the campsite is too small for my stream.

The problem with flagging is that when a post is removed, they can immediately re post allowing them to stay at the top of the list, or at least that used to be the case.

We live in Mariposa and our home is 40 Miles from the main Gate its wonderful to have that park as you back yard. You have to book reservations in Yosemite Park at least 6 months to a year in advance. Best time of the year to go is in the spring April, May early June and in the fall Late September, October and Early November any other time in the summer is a mad house and no room to move. Our favorite time to go up there is in the fall and winter for photography. Many time you are the only one in the park other than the rangers.
Mariposa has a campround at the Fairgrounds and there is a KOA in Midpines on Hwy 140 into the park. In Merced Canyon there is a Campground at the Ceder Lodge Hotel with full hook ups.

According to NPS and the reservation people Yosemite is the exception. You cannot make reservations earlier than the 15th day of the month at 7am 5 months before your visit. Within minutes all reservations are full for the month. I was not even able to get through even simultaneously trying the phone and internet. Other parks you can make reservations no earlier than 6 months ahead.

Yes it must be nice to be able to commute to Yosemite, Hetch Hetchy, Sequoia and Kings Canyon.

I Think that the fix is in.

I ran three computers on Monday morning with zero results. I sync'd with the Naval Observatory clock. It is hard to believe that nothing was available.

Are your sure you want to camp in the "Super volcano"? When this thing goes millions will die ...

Yosemite is pretty safe, barring rock falls from the sheer granite walls. Most Yosemite Valley campsites are far enough into the middle to be safe. Yellowstone is the "super volcano."

I think you're confusing Yosemite with Yellowstone.

The valley is a zoo in July. I know, I was there July, 2009.
Stay elsewhere and commute in a day. We were in the park five days and our one day in the valley was not the high-point.

Besides, if Yellowstone goes, you might as well have front row seats

I was talking to a ranger at Yellowstone who said the risk of a catastrophic eruption is all hype. Said the geology is all wrong. Said an eruption is possible but would be a lava flow of thick sticky lava like Hawaii. Famous last words?
