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

After camping at The Download Festival a few times this was like a 5 star hotel. The campsite was full but felt so open and spacious. Everyone seemed to have a huge amount of space. We had site number 115 and it was opposite the toilets which suited us just fine. 50 meters from the river which was great to... More

We had a really good pitch adjacent to the river (524) at this camp which can feel crowded if you are on a pitch in the centre of the camp. We reserved our spot 5 months before we went there – an absolute must if you want a good spot. There are no facilities at this camp other than a... More

I try to camp here every summer that I'm lucky enough to land a spot on the river's edge. The interior spaces at this campgound are spaced a bit close together but once you realize your camping out in the Yosemite Valley, it all seems insignificant. I prefer North Pines over the other ones because it's smaller and more remote.... More

This was my first trip to Yosemite and it was wonderful! I haven't camped since I was a kid and this place was just perfect. The campsites are close together but we weren't bothered by our neighbors once. They were all very friendly. There are bathrooms with flush toilets but you better bring your own soap and towel. No showers,... More

We have been to Yosemite many times but this was the first time camping in the valley floor. LOVED IT!! We booked on-line 5 months ahead of time on www.recreation.gov and got a great site along the river. Of course all the spots along the river are the most popular, but most all of them are fine. The negative we... More
