Vogelsang Utilities Upgrade Project
Vogelsang is one of Yosemite’s five high sierra camps and is located approximately 7.5 miles south of the Tioga Road in the Tuolumne Meadows area.
This High Sierra Camp was originally established on the north shore of Booth Lake in 1923, which proved to be an undesirable location due to poor drainage and an abundance of mosquitoes. The camp’s present location on Fletcher Creek was established in 1940, and is the highest of the five camps at an elevation of 10,300 feet.
This proposed project incorporates three separate rehabilitation and repair projects within the Vogelsang High Sierra Camp (VHSC) and the adjacent Backpackers Camp. These include: Vogelsang HSC Water System Upgrade Project, Wastewater Upgrade Project, and the Replacement of the Backpackers Camp Composter.
The purpose of the Vogelsang Backcountry Utility Upgrade project is to upgrade the Vogelsang HSC drinking water and wastewater systems to meet National Park Service (NPS), state, and federal drinking water and wastewater treatment standards, and to replace the non- operational backpacker composting toilet.

Did You Know?
When it opened to the public on May 29, 1926, the Yosemite Museum became the first museum building in the national park system, and its educational objectives served as a model for parks nationwide. It still functions much as it was originally intended, and currently exhibits items which mainly reflect the Native occupation of Yosemite Valley and its surroundings. When in the park, you can visit with one of three cultural demonstrators who primarily staff the Museum.
