We camped in the North Pines Campground and you are literally 10 feet away from your neighbors. The roads and spots are small and tight and hard to back into due to the trees. The restroom building close to use was lacking a water spout. You had to walk quite a distance to find a water spout. I was surprised... More

Outstanding location right in the valley of the national park. You can reach many trailheads right from the campground. Clean quiet campground that was ideal for a 30 foot motor home. Has a great time with our four kids and the bus system was great to get around the valley.

This campground was great, but extremely tough to get a site in the valley. Close to everything - the river, the shuttle, hiking trails, etc. The campground is flat and kids could ride their bikes around the campground. The campsite is right next to the horse stables, so it can smell a little funky when the wind blows just right.... More

This was one of my favourite campgrounds - but to be fair, we must have had one of the best sites in the whole place. There are 3 amazing sites at this campground. The rest are very close together. We were there just before the July 4th weekend and it looked a bit like a refugee camp - hundreds of... More

We thought North Pines was great. We had site 526, which was spacious and on the river. It was situated midway between two bathhouses and had a nice view. Fairly close to the campground entrance, too. My only issues were with the campground host and the entry booth. It was only manned between 10:30-5 while we were there in late... More

Being just below the half dome, this is as far deep in the valley as you can possibly stay. Great for hikes to Mirror lake or going up the John Muir trail, even if only to the Vernal waterfalls. Shuttle busses will bring you anywhere in the valley. The only thing missing in the camp are showers! After a long... More

Just finished 7 nights in site 313. We had a 32 foot motorhome and found it difficult to access this site a we had to pull front in to keep door to camp. Narrow road and trees along with other campers parking into the road. Got out fine as the site across was empty. Basic campground, flush toilets and water.... More

After spending several nights in other campgrounds around Yosemite NP like Porcupine or Ellery Lake, we were kind of disappointed by this campground in the Valley. Tent sites are small, neighbors are right next to you, in your sight, and visitors are mostly families staying there for several nights, so expect noises until late at night. Bathrooms are OK. No...

My husband and I had an excellent spot opposite the river. The view from our spot was fantastic. There weren't any shower facilities on our site and you needed to get a shuttle to the nearest one which was a little disappointing but otherwise everything else was fantastic.

This campground has amazing views and is a beautiful location, among pine trees. However, as a result of the pine forest the spaces can be quite narrow and driving to the spaces is also quite tight. We had a 31 foot RV (which we had said when booking) but had been given a space with a tree almost directly opposite... More
