If you are a Backpacker in Yosemite you should stay one or two nights St Camp 4. you Share one fireplace with 3 other tents. So you will automaticly have conversations with People from all around the world. Bear boxes. At night sometimes bears are around and in the campground. So cool. The Rangers are always around. Oh and go... More

We were essentially ridiculously lucky, arriving at 10 and waiting 45 minutes for a slot.. But beware - we were the last people to get a spot and others behind us were turned away. The people in the long queue before us had been there since 5am (the ones at the front) - and had assured themselves a spot.. But... More

It is much better than I thought. Very civilised camping site. It was cheap clean and well organised. It's first come first serve. It's quite busy better go early. No shower on the site. It's 3mins walk to Yosemite lodge which is the main dining area.

We left SF at 3am and arrived to Camp 4's first come first serve camp site at 6:15am on Saturday morning in mid July. There were 52 people in line already and they allowed 84 people that day, so we luckily got in no problem. The 84th person probably got there around 7:30-7:45. The ranger arrived a little after 8am... More

Last weekend, I stayed at this campsite for 2 nights. I arrived at Yosemite very late at night, so I was expecting all the campsites to be full and was already preparing to stay in my car for the night. During a midnight hike, we came across this campsite and found that there was still plenty of room for us.... More

We camped here for 2 nights in October. We got there early and had to wait a couple of hours in the line to get a pitch. The system felt very inefficient but everyone in the line got a pitch in the end. The site is basic but easy access to all of yosemite valley. We were on the furthest... More

First of all we had to stand in a line for more than 2 hours to finally get our site which was quite annyoing. When you know how popular the campground is than why just employing a single person who is resonsible for so many people? Makes no sense! Moreover the campground was full of very large families with crying... More

We walked in around 8 am and were lucky to get a spot. The campground is very nice with a food locker for every site. The rangers advice you to put everything in there - food, cosmetics... and you do good following that advice. Everywhere you can read about bear incidents and sightings. The parking lot is close to the... More

We were limited to a week here before moving to one of the Pines campsites. For a crack at Midnight Lightning the legendary boulder problem, for meeting other cragrats, for group meals, for access to valley routes (if you don't have a car) Camp 4 is sort of where it's at. You know what? By the end of our month... More
