“Roughing it, but worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

Fantastic experience for the kids! We were right next to the water, saw deer close up, toasted s'mores, saw a bear across the water the next morning. Couldn't believe our luck!! Perfect vacation.
The bed and bunk bed were clean. We brought sleeping bags, blankets and pillows. The power was out our entire stay but we had flashlights. That didn't affect us much at all.

I loved
The location ! It is superb !! Right on the river

The unit : very convenient , table yo eat, table to prepare food, fire . Perfect

The location in the park right in the middle of everything !! Perfect to explore the valley .


What could be better :
People around us having fires after 10pm and all the smoke came in our room . We couldn't breath . Had to call front desk twice to have somebody come . It was really uncomfortable !!



And the toilets need a big cleaning !! Old dirt in the corners ..
Also the unit was not clean enough ( I found an old plaster ).


Overall very good experience!!
And special thanks for the beds and linen that are Very very confortable !! ( I was really surprised about it !!)

I highly recommend !

Had friends visiting from abroad and we got a reservation 2 days ahead. Yes, it can happen! We were 3 adults and 2 children and it was a little cramped in the "shelter". Specially since I used a double air mattress, instead of the small cot they offered. It is more like camping outside then being in a motel room so of course it was a little dusty. Nice set up with your own little "dining-area". Lots of nice people in the camp, a very friendly ranger and the shop was right there, if you forget some food at home. Yosemite is just nice, staying at Housekeeping Camp made it even more memorable.

Next year will be our family's 30th year back to Yosemite for an annual gathering. We can take a hike, ride bikes, do some rafting and swimming, or just sit around camp and visit. This is one trip that our family and extended family looks forward to all year.

Housekeeping Camp is wonderful the beds and secure tent area is provided, all you need is camping gear, river supplies, food, and wood for the fire. Then you can swim relax, hike and enjoy the beauty.

Awesome location within the valley. Close to lots of trailheads. Lots of walking and biking paths nearby. Beautiful views of yosemite falls, half dome and glacier point from the campsite. Free shuttle bus pick up at Housekeeping entrance.

Our family gathers in Yosemite every summer. Housekeeping is perfect for us since we love the planning of our menus and shared cooking of our meals. We love camping but appreciate not having to set up and tear down a tent. The best is early morning with a cup of coffee and meandering down to the Merced River and watching the deer graze in a small pasture area near the beach. Glorious!
