Big Meadow Fire 100% Contained

All roads into Yosemite National Park, including the Big Oak Flat Road and portions of the Tioga Road, are now open with no restrictions. The roads, which have been closed since Wednesday, August 26 due to the Big Meadow Fire, allows visitors to enter Yosemite Valley via Highway 120.

The Crane Flat Campground and the Tamarack Flat Campground remain closed until further notice. The Bridalveil Creek Campground, originally slated to close September 8, will remain open until October 12 in an effort to accommodate more visitors staying overnight within the park.

The Big Meadow Fire is now 100% contained and burned a total of 7,425 acres. Yosemite Fire Crews will continue to monitor for sporadic hotspots to prevent any further fire activity.

Visitors driving on the Big Oak Flat Road and the Tioga Road are urged to use caution as some smoke may still be present. In addition, multiple pull-outs along either road may be closed due to hotspots in proximity to the road. The Tamarack Creek to El Capitan trail, the Rockslides to El Capitan trail, and the Old Big Oak Flat Trailhead to El Capitan all remain closed at this time.
