Yosemite in Summer (June - September)

Visiting Yosemite national park during the summer will guarantee access to the entire park via car, as the weather warm and snow has completely melted. The average high of Yosemite summer is 87 degrees Fahrenheit.  Because the climate ranges from warm to hot and rain is rare, this is the ideal time for outdoor Yosemite camping. However, you will likely have a difficult time obtaining Yosemite national park reservations (see above for details) since this is the most popular season to visit Yosemite.

If you are interested in seeing waterfalls, then plan on early summer (May through June) and you’ll catch the end of peak run off. By August many waterfalls are down to a trickle or are completely dry. Summer is also the ideal time of the year to enjoy the many wildflowers that Yosemite national park has to offer. In Yosemite Valley and Wawona visitors can witness the blooming of redbuds, Sierra onions, lupine, Mariposa lilies, pentstemons, and flowering dogwoods. Not to be outdone, Tolumne Meadows boasts of the following flowers: little elephant's heads, gentian, pentstemon, yarrow, and shooting stars.
