“There's only one Yosemite and being able to camp in the park was worth the hassles.”

We rode our bikes through all the three campgrounds and felt we not only got the best one but we very likely got one of the best spots - mostly. There were only a few sites that would take our 28 foot Airstream and this site was a good fit. We were close to the restrooms and fresh drinking water but not too close. We had a view of Half Dome and we didn't feel crowded by our neighbors. The "mostly" comes from the fact that our site was on an inside corner, right next to the amphitheater and everyone cut through the site as a short cut to the front of the park or over to the river. It would have been okay if people would have given us a little respect and walked farther around our spot but they tromped right though. It was a small inconvenience when compared to the view and the openness of the site. We'd book this site again.

We walked through all 3 of the campgrounds in Yosemite Valley and we were lucky to be camping in what we felt was the best campground.

All 3 campgrounds were packed with large groups and smoldering campfires. Sites are close together and there isn't any privacy. Lower Pines has the most sun and some sites have views of Half Dome.

When I made the reservation, I called to get the site numbers that would fit our 27 foot Airstream, this is what they told me on the phone, I did not verify in person (our site #50 fit us fine).

Lower Pines - 20, 27, 38, 50,
North Pines - 323, 111, 128, 125, 403, 116

There isn't any Verizon service in the Valley and AT&T wasn't usable in the campground (even with a booster) but there is AT&T 4G at the Village Store.
