Camping in Yosemite

Campground reservations
Campground reservations can be very difficult to get, so be sure to get the details on campground reservations and look over frequently asked questions and tips for making reservations.

Camping without a reservation (first-come, first-served camping)

First-come, first-served campgrounds are available all year, especially July through September (but it's very hard to find a first-come, first-served campsite in April, May, and June).

Information about campgrounds and campsites

We have details about the thirteen campgrounds in Yosemite, information about RV camping, and campground regulations.

The Yosemite Leadership Program partners with UC Merced, to bring students to the park each summer for hands-on professional development through internships. Students work alongside scientists, educators, interpreters, business managers, and many other professionals of the NPS and park partner organizations. Some go on to become National Park Service rangers.
