Joshua Tree NP: Reservierung Jumbo Rocks CG und Cottonwood CG ab 07.02.2018

Forum: Allgemeine Reiseinformationen Hallo zusammen, auch wenn diese Information, die Volker (Groovy) in einem anderen Thread bereits mitgeteilt hatte, noch nicht bestätigt ist, möchte ich sie hier nochmals als eigenständigen Post einsetzen, damit diejenigen, die für den Joshua Tree NP planen, auch selbst ein Augenmerk darauf haben. Im Moment ist auf Recreation.gov noch kein Hinweis darauf zu finden. Ich könnte mir aber denken, dass sich hier ein neuer Reservierungs-Hotspot (zumindest im Frühjahr) wie im z.B. Yosemite NP ausbildet. Also schaut bei Bedarf auch mal selbst nach der Reservierung, damit ihr dann nicht voller Hoffnung auf einen fcfs-Platz vor den reservierten Sites steht. Also, beginning February 7, campers will be able to reserve campsites at Jumbo Rocks campground as well as Cottonwood campground on the Recreation.gov reservation system. With 124 campsites at Jumbo Rocks and another 60 sites at Cottonwood, it is an increase of 184 additional campsites that can be reserved on-line. https://www.nationalparkstraveler.org/2018/01/shuttle-bus-service-coming-joshua-tree-national-park Grüße Bernhard

Joshua Tree NP: Shuttle Bus Service ab 01.02.2018

Forum: Allgemeine Reiseinformationen Shuttle Bus Service Coming To Joshua Tree National Park By NPT Staff on January 25th, 2018 A free shuttle bus will start rolling through Joshua Tree National Park on the first of February. Beginning February 1, visitors to Joshua Tree National Park in California will have a choice of driving into the park or hopping aboard the new shuttle bus service. The park has partnered with Morongo Basin Transit Authority and will be offering shuttle service to designated stops in and around the park. Shuttles will leave every two hours from the Joshua Tree and Oasis Visitor Centers and will make stops at Jumbo Rocks Campground, Ryan Mountain parking lot, Hidden Valley day use area, Intersection Rocks, Barker Dam, and Upper Boy Scout Trail parking lot. The shuttle is free during the pilot program, but visitors will need a valid park pass to ride it. Shuttle schedules will be posted at all visitor centers and shuttle stops. MBTA regulations allow for service animals on the shuttle, however all “pets” are required to be transported in crates. There are accommodations for wheelchairs and up to two bicycles per bus. Occupancy will be on a first-come, first-served basis. “This is a pilot program and if successful, we look to expand in coming years to more locations and increased frequency of stops," said Joshua Tree Superintendent David Smith. "We hope that the new shuttle will alleviate congestion in the more popular areas...

Capitol Reef NP: Fruita CG kann ab 01.02.2018 reserviert werden (und einige andere news)

Forum: Campgrounds USA Hallo, da habe ich wieder mal was gefunden: https://www.nps.gov/care/learn/news/newsreleases.htm Camping at the 71-site developed Fruita campground is a popular activity at Capitol Reef National Park. “With the campground being remote and first-come, first-served, it can be a challenge to find a site in the busy season” says park staff Keri Pace. In an effort to allow for advanced trip planning the majority of the campsites will be reservable starting next year. Campers will be able to book reservations for campsites for the 2018 season at www.recreation.gov (link is external), a well-established reservation system, starting February 1, 2018. The majority of campsites will be reservable from March 1 to October 31, with a handful of sites remaining first-come, first-served. The campsites will not be on the reservation system from November 1 to the end of February. The cost for an individual campsite will remain $20.00 per site and accommodate up to eight people, with a reduced rate for Access and Senior Pass holders Grüße   Beate  

Bryce Canyon: Bauarbeiten North und Sunset Campground ab 01.06.2018

Forum: Allgemeine Reiseinformationen Hallo liebe Foris!   Bin grad am "Campingplatz Probebuchen" für unsere Reise im Juli 2018. Jetzt steht auf der Seite vom Bryce Canyon: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- LIMITED AVAILABILITY DUE TO CONSTRUCTION: Campground construction is scheduled to begin June 1, 2018 at Bryce Canyon National Park. During this time a limited number of sites will be available on a first come first serve basis. Please visit the park's website for updates and trip planning purposes. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Weiß da jemand etwas genaueres? Wie lange dauern die Arbeiten? Evtl. hat ja jemand Insiderwissen. Wäre blöd wenn wir dann keine Platz bekommen. Evtl würde ich dann halt 2 Nächte, statt einer, Kodachrome Basin buchen und einen Tagesausflug zum Bryce machen.   herzlichen Dank und liebe Grüße Klaus
