Question about Mather Campground

basecamp asked on 11/19/2021

I see that Mather is first-come first-served during winter. Only a fraction of the campsites are open. Has anyone camped at Mather during the winter, and was it difficult to get a site? Thanks!

We just returned from Mather. The campground was pretty empty. They will start limiting sites after Thanksgiving. But, in talking to a ranger, she said the park is at about 40 percent capacity because COVID is restricting international visitors from entering the US. Apparently, that is who usually comes to GC in the winter. Hope that helps.
