Random observations: 1) We had done the lower loop trip 3 years ago (using the lottery system, for a ranger-led trip), and thought a couple of months ago it would be fun to see the camps north of the road (Glen Aulin and May Lake). We checked the website in either February or March, and found out there were cancellations... More

This is the highest elevation of all the camps, and the most scenic as far as magnificent mountain scenery - great sunrise and sunsets, great day hikes from camp, and the usual outstanding food and service.

High Sierra Camps totally rock. We were lucky enough to win the lottery on our first try for all 5 camps. Can't say enough good things about the staff at all these camps. They do a great job and are consistently friendly and helpful. Food was excellent as well. All in all highly recommended as long as you know what... More

we did the 4 day Saddle trip. I wish we had done the six day. The scenery is amazing and the friendly camps at the end of the day were refreshing. I have traveled to patagonia and to New Zealand. Yosemite tops them all. A truly remarkable experience.

Three nights at the High Sierra Camp at Merced Lake was well worth the 14-mile hike in from Tanaya Lake and 15-mile hike out to Tuolomne Meadows. For four days, life became very simple and extremely satisfying. Walk, drink water, take enough food, observe the amazing beauty of the natural world, observe one's own body doing simple, necessary actions, let... More

The Canvas Tents were lovely. The concrete slab floor warmed nicely with the woodstove. Prepared food and drink were served with a smile by knowledgeable, friendly and accomodative staff. Top notch! Views were worth the hike in.

We planned a stop at May Lake on our last night of a long Backpacking trip for a great meal. We had a wonderful Salmon dinner, in a very scenic spot after several days in the wilderness in Yosemite National Park. Thank You

You can always meet new friends while visiting the wonderful High Sierra Camps. Great experience in wonderful Yosemite! Be delighted with a wonderful dinner and scrumptous breakfast. You have the option to order a sack lunch, as well. The tent is equipped with a wood stove for your comfort!

I enjoyed hiking the beautiful trails to all 5 rustic camps and hope to come back soon! Not all the camps offer showers and making friends with your bunk mates and fellow campers is part of the fun. After a full day of hiking it is such a treat to be welcomed to the camp with great food and good... More

Just a truly fantastic experience. Magical place to be with an amazing staff and great food! Hope to return soon. We were unable to book any time at the adjacent camps (Vogelsang / Sunrise) and so we had to hike in from Yosemite Valley. It's a long and challenging hike but we were able to make it in about 10...
