Lovely Rustic City

aka Curry Village

My daughters and I have now stayed in both the canvas tent/cabin and a hard-sided cabin. Both provide comfortable beds with sheets and a warm blanket on each. (If you like fluffy pillows, bring one from home.) 

We stayed in the heated tent/cabin during a major snowfall and…

Great for families traveling to Yosemite

We tent camped on the river here and really enjoyed our stay. We floated on the river in tubes, visited Nearby Rainbow Pools, went into Yosemite Valley a couple of days, the park is about 5-10 mins from the entrance to Yosemite but we didn’t mind we enjoyed the drive into the valley and used it as…

Beautiful and quiet

This is my new favorite place to camp. Each site is very large and sheltered with trees in between each site. The campground sits in an aspen grove which was neat. We plan to come back in the fall when the trees start to turn.

Family friendly beautiful campground

Amazing weather and scenery near 3 small lakes full of trout. We left our kayak on Trumbull lake unattended for a week. We felt very safe.

The restrooms are vault, and cleaned twice daily!

Caution, the "drinking" water was yellowish/brown. Probably sourced from the lake nearby. We used it to…

It was our first time camping in Yosemite and we absolutely loved this campsite. Mirror Lake, and Mist Trail were near by. Restrooms are extremely clean great views all around.

AKA Curry Village

Nice, no frills canvas tenting in Yosemite. Best part is the location, which gives direct access to some of the most popular trails -- Happy Isles to Mist Trail, Mirror lake, etc. It has a nice family friendly vibe. Community/ Shared baths were acceptable, but be prepared to wait for showers during…

Camped at Ward Lake for several nights

Great small campground next to a small lake. Nice campsites, pit toilets. Overall pretty good, but we did come across several small rattle snakes.

Best location, easy camping

This is the best location in Yosemite. Super easy with great views of Yosemite falls and creek to play in. Bathrooms were clean. Spaces have enough room that you aren’t on top of each other. Tents have outlets to plug in a few items. Beds were comfortable enough. Tent could have been cleaner, but…

Great Site

Very nice campsite with around 70 sites and three ranger campsites so plenty of help. Went on a rainy day but there was plenty of tree cover and we stayed in our tent briefly.

Quiet & Secluded

I loved camping here. There’s a few spots off the road that leads into the hot springs, before you hit the sign that says no camping. Just pull onto one of the dirt roads on the left and find a spot! Any car or smaller RV could easily drive the road.

There was no one else there when I was camped…

Ok for 1 night

Was a bit crowded but was ok for our purposes of a stay over. Bathrooms were nice but not well maintained

Nice but full of people

Full hook ups, good shade, good access to water, but pretty crowded. It’s not the place to go if you want to get out into the wild.

Decent campground, overpriced

We were tent camping and were nervous about not having a reservation around Yosemite so we reserved a site here for a tent site by the river. The price was high but were willing to pay for a confirmed place to stay during June 2021. When we got there they were under major construction and told us…
