Bridalveil Creek Campground will close for the season on Tuesday, September 2.

They sure don't waste any time closing things down for the season.

Makes complete sense. With all our money going overseas, there's none left to keep park campgrounds open.

So, although the campground is closed, wilderness permits are still available for departures from Yosemite Creek, right? I'm considering a short trip out of there starting Sep. 27. Thanks!

If the campground is closed it just means that you won't be able to drive
down to the campground on the old Tioga Rd.
You can still hike from 120 which is the official Yosemite Creek Trailhead.
(It's about 2.5 miles to the campground from Ten Lakes/Yose Crk TH)
Or, you can start at Lukens Lake TH and hike South.... but that is more
uphill on your way back...

Have fun. It's kinda cool to walk thru the "deserted" campground...

Ok, thanks. I had mistakenly assumed that the Yosemite Creek Trailhead was at the Yosemite Creek Campground; no problem to start at the official Trailhead on 120, and will have alternates planned just in case.

Yes deserted campgrounds are kind of interesting - I walked through Glen Aulin and Sunrise HS camps in July 2005 when they were empty (if I recall correctly, a large snowpack delayed potential opening date so much that they couldn't get a full season and instead left all HS camps closed that year.)

And some of them being deserted sure made taking pictures for http://yosemitecampsites.com a lot easier.
