This is a hard camgpround to rate. It's not particularly clean or quiet. The sites are all different sizes and right on top of one another. But of course it's reasonably priced and right in the middle of Yosemite Valley, so it's got that going for it! Easily walkable to Half Dome Village (nee Curry) where you can rent bikes and get... more

“Amazing indeed. Needs some electrical hookups!!”

Overall Rating

Yosemite Valley is simply the most stunning place to camp we've ever been. Nothing comes close. On top of that, there is way more to do than we could possibly do in the one week maximum stay. Absolutely a fantastic experience that I highly recommend for every family. While we were here in early August, staying in the valley and gett... more

We stayed here right after a snow storm and as we didn't have chains, had to delay our trip by a day. The NPS staff was so great, helping us find an alternate place to stay and moving our reservations. The campground is clean, beautiful, sites are easy to access. In addition to the water fill and dump station, each section had a dumpst... more

“Camping in Nature's Cathedral”

Reviewed Feb 23, 2015

Overall Rating

Yosemite Valley is beyond description--pictures and words do not do it justice. The overlook views, the many waterfalls, the forest and meadow floor, and the almost incomprehensible half-mile high sheer valley walls . . . I'm trying and failing at describing the experience. We camped in February, when the only valley camping area o... more
