Which Option Should I Choose?

The best choice depends on your circumstances, but if you’re going to visit Yosemite more than once or visit multiple parks, the Yosemite or America the Beautiful passes are worth getting. It’s a mystery why people will readily shell out $100 apiece for a day in a theme park, but won’t part with a smaller amount for a park pass that will cover their entire family.

If you want to buy a pass but not wait in line at the park gates to get one, you can order them ahead of time at the national parks website or call 1-888-GO-PARKS.
