We spent two nights at Sunrise Camp. The setting was gorgeous, overlooking a meadow with granite peaks all around. The tents were basic but comfortable, with lots of blankets and a small wood stove. The meals, served family style, were wonderful and plentiful. The small staff did an incredible job. I would love to go back. We spent one night... More

Beautiful surroundings-beautiful country-very good experience. Two nights are needed for a hike to the top of Mt. Hoffman. Very difficult to get spots in the lottery. We took advantage of the cancelations

At Glen Aulin, we first spied the waterfall and swimming hole with sunbathers. Then as we entered the Mess Hall, we were greeted with a big smile and a cup of lemonaide. Wonderful after the long hike from Tuolemne Meadows. The tent cabins are comfortable. Great option for the over 65 set who can't carry a full pack. Food was... More

Camping in backpacking territory without carrying equipment! Plus great fresh food cooked and cleaned up after by the hosts!! Best location ever with streams, waterfalls, pools at their base, stunning vistas of rocky crags.

We were lucky enough to win the lottery, the first time we applied, of all 5 camps consecutively. After discussion with others, that is unusual. We had a great time. The mostly young folks who run the camps are very friendly and professional. Food is better than expected and was excellent at Vogelsang. Served family style. Beds, blankets and comforters... More

Don't wait any longer! The High Sierra Camps are an amazing way to experience the Yosemite High Country, all of the camps are perfectly located in surreal locations with everything you need to feel right at home. Warm cabins, clean restrooms, knowledgeable camp hosts and fantastic food help make the experience all the more enjoyable!

You are greeted after a 6-10 mile hike with cool lemonade! The staff at each camp clearly love where they are and what they're doing. The food was delicious and fresh...and plentiful. The tents were cozy and the wood stove made evenings much warmer. The three camps we went to (Glen Aulin, May Lake, Sunrise) each had a different flavor,... More

I entered the lottery for the fifth time for the independent hike and didn't win (again.) However, as an alternative I also tried for the northern saddle trip. I was awarded the northern saddle trip, but decided that I had already seen those High Sierra Camps so I switched to the southern saddle trip. I stayed at Tuolumne High Sierra... More

For 35 years I have spent summers and winters in Yosemite, both The Valley and High Sierra Camp....but never beyond Tuloumne. Finally we did "The Loop"...Every aspect of our treck to each of the high sierra camps was wonderful and magical

Sunrise Camp is in a beautiful setting, worth the effort of hiking in and out. Food is amazing, too. Staff are very helpful in suggesting and describing hikes. Vogelsang is also stunning, though a higher elevation.
