Does anyone know if you can change the number of hikers in your party after you have submitted your lottery application?

Not sure, Kent. Try logging into recreation.gov and see if there is an option to modify the application. ...I don't recall from last year that there was.

However, if you want to decrease the number of hikers, and IF you win the reservation in the lottery, you can reduce the number of hikers before you accept and pay for it. They won't let you increase the number, but that can be done when you show up to get the real permit -- if space is available, and it usually is.

The other option: Create a new application for $6, and enter the number of people you want. (If one application is processed and wins in the lottery, the others are cancelled automatically.)

Your winning application might be the one with fewer hikers that would displace the other in which you requested more hikers?

Unless you can kill the 1st application.

This is getting confusing (again). I submitted 3 applications for 3 dates (all midweek) hoping I will have my choice of any of those three dates after the lottery. Will the lottery choose one of those three dates for me?

Yes,they will pick a date for you. When your application is reviewed they will take your date requests (in the order you put them in). They will look to see if there is space available in the first date, if there is, then that is what you get. If not, they move to the next date and so on.

Sparty is correct. In addition, as soon as one of the permits is successfully reserved, the other two are canceled. ...unless you entered them under three different people.
