A way to see the high Sierra without a heavy backpack. Meet other hikers. But there are a lot of hikers at these camps. Usually good food. Cots are acceptable. PCT is difficult because of heavy use and heavy trail engineering, meaning a surface of many rocks. I prefer the other trails.

The setting was spectacular, and the food provided was outstanding; having cots in big four-person tents was very nice. Three years ago we visited the five backcountry High Camps over seven days, but this time we planned to stay two nights each at Sunrise, May Lake, and Glen Aulin. Unfortunately, because of fire we were evacuated (by walking back out... More

First time trip. The crews at both camps were great, accommodations excellent, and the food phenomenal. Great hiking and views at night. Look forward to getting back next year! PS hot drinks at 7am and 6 pm. Meals at 730 am and 630 pm.

The serene setting and the spectacular scenery while hiking to the camp makes a traveller want to go back again. The excellent service and the gourmet food the staff provides even to vegetarians is unparalleled.

I hesitate to say this, but hiking to the High Sierra Camps in Yosemite is one of my favorite things to do each summer. I am reluctant only because securing a bed is very competitive. I love each High Sierra Camp. They're all in beautiful settings though each is different. The food at the camps is usually good to excellent,... More

May Lake, one of the High Sierra camps, features a spectacular location, fantastic food, an organized, friendly, welcoming and fully competent staff, as well as the congenial dining experience that harkens back to an earlier era of Yosemite. Explore the high country: awaken to a chickoree climbing a lodgepole pine, encounter a blue grouse feeding quietly, see the morning glow... More

Including Tuolumne Meadows there are six High Sierra Camps in the Yosemite Wilderness. Each one has it's own unique beauty. Everyone we met fell in love with this place. Many are repeat customers, myself included. The staff are passionate about what they do. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

We had a great time. The weather was perfect (end of August), the trail condition was good, and the people we met were very nice. We had a breakfast and a dinner at Vogelsang, and the food was awesome - our chef was Lucas. Everyone working at Vogelsang made the trip enjoyable.

If you love hiking and the wilderness but do not or cannot handle a heavy backpack, this is the perfect opportunity to experience the beauty of Yosemite. We were only able to get 3 camps but loved it and hope to win the lottery next year for all 5 camps. Being our first experience, here, we were amazed at the... More

Close by Parking off Tioga road (about 1 hr from main gate). 1.4M hike to the camp ground. Excellent food and great company of guests. Stayed 1 night and felt very welcome. The scenery is breathtaking
