decent campgrounds. so over crowded but there’s really no other options in the park. it seemed like every campground was the same.

no reservations. I would suggest lining up the morning of at least an hour before the office opens.

Last Minute Jewel

This is a first come first serve campground and the first time I’ve ever stayed in a campground where campers are paired together to maximize the space. A little concerned initially because I was camping with the family but it ended up working out just fine. My previous experience with camping in the valley just enforced my desire to find seclusion at higher elevations but We really enjoyed meeting a bunch of interesting people from all over the world and didn’t have any issues with sharing the campsite with other campers. Last minute camping is very difficult in Yosemite so this is an excellent option if you can get in. Recommend getting in line super early in peak season. Water levels were high and the valley was green and abundant with waterfalls.

Great, but crowded, campsite!

Camp 4 is legendary. Since it's a no reservation spot, it's a bit of a struggle to actually get a site (early wake up and wait in line situation), but it's definitely worth it. Once assigned to a campsite, there are plenty of trees and flat ground to set up your area. There are bathrooms, fire pits, a big boulder, and views for days! Would definitely recommend. Protip: get there on a weekday to avoid the weekend crowds trying to get a spot!

Amazing

awesome

hard to get; crowded

A Crowded and Over Used Campground in a Perfect Location

Camp 4 is Yosemite's only walk-in campground, which means you don't need reservation to stay. Of course, with such a popular destination, perfect location and lack of other options in the area, you'll need to get up early to find a spot.

This site sees a lot of traffic. While the location is great, the actual site resemble a large patch of well used dirt. During busy season, plan on other campers taking a festive approach to dinner and campfire life.

No reservation first serve

Was on a ten day trip in Big Sur decided to take a break and spend a few days in Yosemite. Drove through the night and showed up at Camp 4 at 2am. We were the 20th person in line Waiting for a site to open the next day. Luckily we ended up with a site in the shared space pretty much have to hope there are enough people leaving or you’re out of luck. Ranger comes down in the morning and will let people in based on availability.
