Winter Yosemite Campground

First site we reserved was too exposed, site 3, talked with camp host and was able to get a more into the trees campsite 29. Clean campsite with plenty of room and bathrooms nearby along with an amazing view of half dome which I got to paint at sunset walking distance to campsite.

Great campground in Yosemite Valley

Would give this a 4.8 if we could - pretty private sites for a NP campground! And right in the valley!!! Level spots and access to showers! Bathrooms decent - quiet. Nice neighbors. We lucked out and checked at Rec.gov at 6:30 pm for any cancellations and scored a 2-night spot!

  • nearly a full moon over the campsite!
