The village is predictable: store, bathrooms, souvenirs. The feeling isn't as it once was 18 years ago when I last visited but it's very helpful to have such a place. Park nearby and walk the village area which includes shopping (including the Ansel Adams Gallery), bathrooms, and a mini-museum in the same area. But don't go expecting to see "Yosemite".... More

I don't know if this is a village or not. I do know that its designed for a positive customer experience. There's a lot to buy and a lot of items that you would see in any nature themed gift shop or bookstore. There's a lot of framed photos to buy and lots of jewelry and things that are made... More

We enjoyed a full day in the village walking around and observe the Mother Nature. Dears, birds and shameless squirls are your visit companions while scenery of peaks and waterfalls are completing a wonderful experience. For renting a bike try to be there before 4:15 PM otherwise there is no chance to get one.

Services: yes. Crowds: yes. Enjoyed: no. Easy access: no (10 minute walk from the parking area). If you forgot something, then stop here. If not, don't go.

National Parks are suppose to focus on and promote conservation. Yosemite clearly has put most of its focus on catering to "privileged" locals and tourists while animal life struggles to survive and waterfalls are dried up most the year. The Village is in a gorgeous valley while excessive pavement in parking, roadways and walkways have aided the destruction of one... More

It had all the souveniers I could ask for and not overpriced. It also had a grocery mart. There was a marked down room too. The people that worked there seemed to really enjoy it too.

We escaped the madness, bustle and heavy traffic of Los Angeles and headed out on Highway 41 to Yosemite Village. We had reserved a cabin, sight unseen, and were not disappointed when we arrived. The cabin was well appointed, clean, and in a quiet place. There we were able to recharge our batteries and be refreshed. The village itself is... More

This isn't much in the way of an attraction. However, if you're visiting the Yosemite valley, this is probably the only place to stock up on food and drinks and the restrooms here were reasonably clean.
