Scan for Day Passes and Timed Entry Permits with CampScanner

Are you tired of missing out on day passes and timed entry permits to some of the most popular National and State Parks? Well, we have exciting news for all outdoor enthusiasts! CampScanner has rolled out a brand new feature designed to make your adventure planning seamless and stress-free. Now, you can create scans to be notified immediately when day passes and timed entry permits become available at iconic parks such as Yosemite National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Glacier National Park, Acadia National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, and many others!

How It Works

CampScanner crawls the booking sites for you, and catches when day passes, timed entry permits, and campsites become available at numerous National and State Parks. Before you can create a scan, you'll need a CampScanner subscription.

  1. Start Your Scan: The process to set up a timed entry or day pass scan works quite similarly to setting up a camping scan. You'll search for the park you want and then you'll be given an option to choose between "Overnight Camping" or "Timed Entries & Day Passes."

  2. Select Filters: When you choose Timed Entries and Day Passes, you'll be able to select either a singular date or a range of dates you'd like a pass for. Make your choice and then click "Start Scan" to sign up to be notified when a pass opens up.

  3. Sit Back and Relax: Once your scan is set, we do the rest. When a reservation that meets your criteria opens up, we'll send you a text. Be sure to act fast before someone else takes it. No more constant refreshing and no more missed opportunities!

Why This Feature Is a Game-Changer

This new feature is particularly beneficial given the increasing popularity of National Parks and the limited availability of day passes and timed entry slots. Whether it's the breathtaking vistas of Yosemite, the geothermal wonders of Yellowstone, or the rugged trails of Rocky Mountain National Park, gaining entry can be a competitive endeavor, especially during peak seasons.

If you scan for timed entry or day passes and camping reservations together, you have more chances of experiencing the park and more flexibility when it comes to camping near the park.

Key Benefits Include:

  • Maximize Your Chances: Increase your chances of securing a pass during your desired dates.
  • Save Time: Eliminate the need to manually check for availability.
  • Plan Better: Checking for last-minute availability has never been easier! Worry about the other trip logistics instead!
