Dinner always starts with homemade soup, followed by salad, homemade bread, roast vegetables, some kind of protein, and ends with homemade cake or cookies. Breakfast always starts with oatmeal, and typically includes a frittata, sausages, fruit, and sometimes hash browns. They always have options for vegetarians and those who avoid gluten (often including homemade gluten-free items). Staff is always sincerely... More

If you want to experience Gods country thru the eyes of a cowboy, go on a mule ride thru the high Sierra camps. It is an experience you will never find anywhere else. The views of nature are beyond description: imagine sunbathing on a rock while fresh spring water falls around you, bathing in a high sierra lake with majestic... More

Second time to Glen aluin High Sierra camp. Stayed longer and explored area. Will go again. 5.8 mile hike in along Tuolumne river. Scenic and mostly easy hike from Tuolumne meadows. The meals are a highlight of trip pack in by donkeys.

We took the Ranger led 5 day trip to 3 High Sierra Camps. Our trip was amazing with waterfalls, granite walls, and meadows filled with wild flowers. It was a hard hike at times, but always worth the work. I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to challenge their bodies, get off line, and be in nature.

Favorites are Vogelsang, Sunrise, and Glen Aulin. Hikes vary, some are easy, some are hard, all are very scenic. Food and culture varies by camp, but is mostly pretty great. Pack for all weather, it snowed on us in July.

The High Sierra Camps provide an outstanding and unique opportunity for people who are not backpackers to visit the high Sierra regions of Yosemite. Without the camps providing the tent cabins, meals, potable water and restrooms, some of the people we met would not have been able to make their visit.

Glen Aulin High Sierra Camp was one incredibly memorable experience! From the hike up from Tuolumne to the serenity and beauty of camp itself. The staff was the absolute best. Everyone was so warm and welcoming. The food was delish (thanks to Ryan the cook). The tent cabins were clean, simple and perfect for the setting. I was simply awestruck... More

If you aren't into backpacking, this is the closest thing to it -without carrying a heavy pack. You do have to hike to camp, but once there, a tent, a bed, blankets, a wood stove to keep you warm, breakfast and dinner, both delicious, are provided. I love the views and the feeling on the trail when it is so... More

I had a fabulous experience at the Merced High Sierra Camp. Being a lone female hiker it was great to have a destination with all the comforts of home. Rosie & Mike were amazing and really took care of me. They are knowledgeable and offered good advice about the trails and weather conditions. The food was fabulous - yummy mushroom... More

Each camp is in a beautiful setting and the hikes are well worth the effort. The food is copious and delicious, and the atmosphere at each camp is special. You have to be willing to give up a bit of luxury, but the rewards are in the experience.
