We were lucky enough to get reservations for 7 nights in this campground, spaces are a bit small but who really cares your in Yosemite right ?! Lots of bears, owls hooting at night, a wolf and horses your next to the stables. That's where those with allergies will struggle they kick up the dust and it floats in this... More

Having read about North Pines spot 136, on Trip Advisor, I was able to book two nights following Memorial Day and absolutely loved the campsite. I like privacy and space and this site offered both. The ranger, at the check-in kiosk, said it was her favorite campsite. No neighboring campsite one one side, the Tenaya River is your other campsite... More

Our family recently rented an RV for our first family RV Trip! What a blast. We booked a site in the North Pines campground in Yosemite Valley, site #210. The site was level, clean and easy to access with a 25' RV. It was a close walk to the restrooms but not so close that you had the smell or... More

We spent a week at North Pines in April, when the Merced River was fast-flowing and the many waterfalls in Yosemite National Park were spectacular. The campsites were clean & well-marked, with reasonable spacing between them. Obviously the very best sites were along the Merced River, but there were also some very sweet sites along the Tenaya Creek side of... More

A national parks campground, level sites, very busy, toilets available plus metal bear-proof cupboards for food. OK for a short stay, no hook-ups available, limited facilities. National park one of the best, but campsite just OK.

We somehow snagged what appears to have been one of the best campsites in the entire Yosemite Valley -- site 136. It was clean and complete with a fire pit, bear bin, and picnic table, but the real prize was that it was situated right along the burbling Tenaya Creek AND that we could see Half Dome through the trees!...

We stayed here for 3 nights and found it to be a lovely little campsite. Try and get a spot next to the river if you can as it is really peaceful and good for cooling off after a hike (very cold though!). The campsite is very shady (as you would expect) and a little dusty at the end of... More

After some initial stressful moments using the bizarre booking system they have in place for these campgrounds, we were rewarded upon arrival with one of the finest campsite locations known to man. We were lucky enough (and I still don't know how I managed it) to bag a campsite right by the river (site 522). Initially we were apprehensive about... More

We stayed at 4 different campgrounds and North pines was by far the best one. We had a river side, private site with a view of half dome!! What more could we ask for. It was great, quiet, near the bathrooms. I wish we were able to stay there our whole visit but feel lucky that we even got to... More

Not the most private campsite, but the huge trees and accessibility to trails, the river, etc. make this a perfect location to explore Yosemite. We were one of the only tents on the site, almost everyone else had trailers, but that didn't impact our stay. We only stayed for two nights and I could have happily stayed for another week.... More
