We stayed here for 2 nights in our 18' travel trailer last week. We were in site 310 which was a slightly wider site that allowed us to back in the trailer and park our vehicle crossways in front. Nice site. There was even room to throw down a tent if needed. The sites on the outer ring (half dome... More

I stayed here for two nights. Compared to other campsites I’ve stayed at, these campsites are definitely closer to each other. But, you still have plenty of space and we didn’t feel cramped. As long as your neighbors are respectful in regards to quiet hours it’ll be fine. I was curious about the size of the bear box, rest assured... More

Squeezed in here at the last minute due to cancelations, so don't hesitate to keep checking reservations.gov to see if you can get in. Great campsite, facilities could use an upgrade but hey, you're camping in the valley, so who cares. Worth it!

I just recently spent a weekend at North Pines with my husband and four of our friends. The campsite is in an excellent location, literally in the shadow of half dome, with huge rock formations surrounding the whole area. It's along the Merced River, which was so cool, literally and figuratively. Freezing water, but worth it. Our particular campsite was... More

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!...
