Camping reservations now available for participants of Yosemite Facelift 2014

We are now ready to take camping reservations for participants of Yosemite Facelift 2014. The event will start with an evening program September 23 and will end at midnight on September 28. If you would like to participate and reserve free camping during that, or part of that timeframe please email us at with the following information.


1. Campground preference in order from #1 to #3. In the Valley, Yellow Pines, Camp 4, and Upper Pines are available. We also have Tuolumne sites available for the same dates.


2. We need to know what dates you would like to reserve. Start date and leave date.


3. We also need to know the number of folks in your party and their names.


This information is crucial to reduce the amount of work required to reserve this camping. We also would appreciate to hear of any changes or cancellations on your end promptly, so that we can accommodate you or others that may be on a waiting list.


We do have a limited amount of camping available prior to, and after the event for those that want to help with setup or with breakdown which is greatly appreciated. If you are interested please mention it when you are reserving your camping and we will try to work that out for you.


Thank you and hope to see you there,


Ken Yager


P.S. I need to thank Maureen for taking on the reservation task. I would also like to thank Black Diamond for their commitment this year. Evening programs will be announced later on when they are confirmed.
