From floating on the river to hiking to breathtaking heights, yosemite is a must see destination for the whole family! Staying in Housekeeping gives you all the outdoor enjoyment of camping with the comfort of a bed and and electricity. A great choice to experience this beautiful place.

i have been to housekeeping camp many times and it has totally grown on me. but my last visit there (just last week) was not as great as the past... the bathroom upkeep this time was basically non existent. "bathrooms cleaned 3 times a day" meant that a crew came in and swept them 3 times a day. no real... More

During the hot summer, staying in a Housekeeping Camp river unit is like glamping. For about $110. No other lodging in Yosemite Valley offers the combination that we got when we stayed over July 4th weekend: - A double bed and bunk bed that sleeps 4. Plus 2 extra cots upon request for a total of 6. (Lodge has some... More

This was my first time to Yosemite Valley and I will definitely return to Housekeeping! It was so easy to load in and out, the staff were super friendly and helpful, and it was great to be so close to the river. Biking, hiking swimming- this place has it all. I loved it and can't wait to return! Only down... More

Love this place! We use to take the kids here when they were younger. It's a safe place to let your kids just be kids. My kids are older now and it is so nostalgic to see families with their kids. I miss those times. I will plan another trip here with the children to reminisce their childhood here.

I love visiting this place! Centrally located with lots of activities to do! Guests are extremely friendly. Place is clean. Wish bathrooms were as clean as showers but that is my only complaint. Closest thing to camping without pitching your own tent.

Yosemite is a special place, I have been going there for almost 50 Years. The housekeeping cabins give my wife a little more than just dirt camping. The facilities are clean and well kept. All the people are friendly, from guys handing out the towels, to the German tourists. While not really roughing it you do have the camp out... More

The house keeping experience that we had was a mix of good and bad. The tents and matresses were in good repair, but general cleanliness such as undies, phone case and dust bunnies under the bed and cobwebs and spiders everywhere inside had much to be improved upon. I think tent camping might actually be claner to sleep in. I... More

The premise of housekeeping camp is that you bring all your own supplies ie. cooking, coolers, bedding, chairs etc whereby dictating your own level of comfort. The idea of getting to play house within 3 concrete walls (one of which is shared with neighbors) sheltered by an old white vinyl tarpaulin might appeal to some, but upon walking past the... More
