Easy camping experience since they can rent you or sell you all necessities. So you don't need to bring all camping gear. Location is unbeatable. Showers and bathrooms are old and dirty. They need newer and more showers as they have lines at night

Beautiful scenery, rugged camping experience with some amenities that allows for comfortable experience. If you are staying in Yosemite, this is really the only place to have it all: the rugged camping experience, electricity, and good showers. All this by the river? Can't beat it!

The best thing about Housekeeping camp, is it is part camping, part cabin, and a wonderful place to go if you enjoy the camping experience, without a lot of the hassle. Perfect for families with small children like ourselves, who want to give your kids that camping experience at the most basic level with lots of conveniences.

It's very convenient location and the bedding is better than I expected. The bathroom and shower room were kept tidy enough and quite decent. It need an upgrade on lighting in the tent. For the convenience of location and the reasonable price, I would come back. If you have kids, you just need to take the shuttle to Curry Village... More

We booked 3 units for our extended family visit (7 adults and 5 kids). A step up from camping. Beds are very comfortable. Bring items to 'spruce up' your unit: small rug for next to bed, vinyl round tablecloth, a sheet to make a curtain to hang with clips when the sun comes in the patio area sideways, little white...

Even though there's no maid involved, it's a wonderful and affordable way to stay in Yosemite Valley. Comfortable beds, a dining table that can be in or out, plenty of room to prepare a meal. The river units give you an extra nice view and access to the Merced River for swimming (in summer). Will definitely be back.

Not a big camper but had a great time at Housekeeping camp. Even the inexperienced campers as myself can camp this way! Kids loved it. Great weather on our trip. Great place to take the family. Kids enjoyed biking, swimming, hiking and cooking outside!

Just had a great time. I love the crystal clear Merced river and being late summer with water level low it is just right for the young kids. We had a river unit so the view was picturesque! We love this place and will be back again and again! Susan-Whittier

Wanted to camp with my teen-aged daughter, but we don't have camping gear. This is a very good place to start as you don't need anything but your clothes. You can rent your bedding. We ate pizza for dinner outside the park. Bought firewood and had a nice family help us build a fire for s'mores. Excellent experience. The weather... More

If you don't want to pitch a tent & don't want to stay in a hotel, then this spot is for you, conveniently located in the middle of everything that you might need and want to see and do. You must be willing to be around complete strangers,but everyone keeps to themselves for the most part. GREAT place for your... More
