Campgrounds

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

Some important notes:

  • Campground opening and closing dates in the "Open approx." column are tentative and can vary from year to year. View historical campground opening and closing dates.
  • Reservations: campgrounds requiring reservations are usually full from around April through September. You should make a reservation as early as possible. If you don't have reservations, find out more about camping without reservations.
  • 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 only available in Yosemite Valley at Half Dome Village (formerly 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 877/444-6777.
  • Read Yosemite's campground regulations.
 


Opening dates for campgrounds with an estimated opening date in July will be revised as soon as we have more information. (How quickly campgrounds open in spring or early summer depends on a variety of factors.)

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.
