A non registration fuck site

First off, this article isn’t about convincing you to visit Yosemite - that should already be on your bucket list.

We're also not writing about how to reserve a campspot at Yosemite because, quite frankly, if you’re just a tiny bit organized then that whole process is pretty easy.

Sometimes you find beautiful spots on here, other times they’re patches of gravel on the side of the road.

Maximize your chances of getting a no-reservations campspot by showing up mid-week.

Once you've staked claim on an open spot, head to the campground registration office to officially lock it down ASAP. If you've found an open site at night, then get up early and be first at the registration office (opens at 9am) - do not snooze on this or you'll spend more time standing in line than catchin' up with El Capitan.

If this is at a campground, there's a slim chance of staying as there’s most likely already a hold on it.

Camping at Porcupine Flat or Tuolumne Meadows might be further than you hoped, but they’ll also be less populated and hopefully quieter.

Be flexible with whatever's open and it'll help land a campspot much quicker than being picky about it.

If you do have a preferred campground, be sure to check at the park entrances that it’s not closed for the season.
