Below is information about each of the campgrounds in Yosemite. Additional information is available for each campground by clicking on the campground name.

Important Notes

 
  • Tap water and creek water: Campgrounds listed as having creek water have vault toilets (not regular restrooms). Campgrounds listed as having tap water have regular restrooms.
  • Showers are not available in 2020. In normal circumstances, they are only available in Yosemite Valley at Curry Village and Housekeeping Camp. Showers are not available elsewhere.
  • Dump stations are available at Upper Pines Campground (all year), near Wawona Campground (summer only), and near Tuolumne Meadows Campground (summer only). No campsites in Yosemite have hook-ups of any kind.
  • RV campsites are available in most campgrounds.
  • Group campsites are available all year at Wawona Campground, and during summer at Hodgdon Meadow, Bridalveil Creek, and Tuolumne Meadows Campgrounds.
  • Horse campsites are available during summer at Wawona, Bridalveil Creek, and Tuolumne Meadows Campgrounds. Reservations are available only by calling 209/375-9535.
  • Wood smoke: Emissions from campfires can degrade air quality in and near campgrounds. This is especially true at night and in early morning, when inversions trap and concentrate fine particles from those campfires near the ground, creating local conditions that are potentially unhealthy for sensitive individuals.
  • Read Yosemite's campground regulations.

Backcountry campgrounds at Little Yosemite Valley and near the High Sierra camps (Glen Aulin, May Lake, Sunrise, Merced Lake, and Vogelsang) are not part of the campground reservation system. A wilderness permit is required to stay at these campgrounds.

High Sierra Camps themselves and Housekeeping Camp are lodging facilities managed by Yosemite Hospitality.
