I'm confused

or is recreation.gov confused? they say end of booking season at TM will be 9/5. Yosemite NPS website, with TM newly listed last Friday, lists closing date as 9/20. anybody know anything about this? best guess, it's a right hand/left hand thing...

Might be that reservations aren't used after 9/5.

unlikely. Yosemite announced that ONLY reservations will be used at TM this summer, which conveniently matches up with reduced occupancy, since normally 50% of the campsites are held back for walk-ups (the only Yosemite campground that uses this hybrid model). as far as I know, TM has never been walk-up only, except a few times when reservations didn't start until day 2 with an early opening and short notice.

on the other hand, more than one unprecedented thing has happened this year...and it's not the first thing that I've been confused about.

have sent email to Yosemite, will share info when (if?) I get a reply.

reply email from Yosemite's web manager thanked me for catching the error. Recreation.gov now in line with Yosemite's dates for TM.

Was this only about the campground or also about TM Lodge? According to this thread, TM Lodge isn't opening this year. Cry baby

you're confused. campground is rec.gov, park service. lodge is aramark, private concession.
