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

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!
