So I'm planning on spending the next couple of months in the valley. My brother lives in Palo Alto so I figured I'd get to sleep in a bed a couple nights a week. On the Yosemite nps website it says you can only stay in the valley for seven nights. They mean consecutively right? Claude Peon

During the peak summer season, I think it's 7 consecutive days and 14 days total, but it might be 7 days total now. John D

Seven nights total from May 1st to Sept 15th in the Valley. Leaving and returning doesn't reset the stay limit. The NPS hasn't advanced to the computer age yet, I think they're still using an alphabetized card catalogue or some shit to keep track of it. Sometimes they won't notice that they already have a card for you when you come back to register, so you can get extra nights, but don't count on it. Bryan G

There is a 30-night camping limit within Yosemite National Park in a calendar year; however, May 1 - September 15, the camping limit in Yosemite is 14 nights, and only seven of those nights can be in Yosemite Valley or Wawona.
