We spend two nights in Camp Curry. Just the knowledge of knowing that there will be bears walking around your tent at night is just amazing. The tents, parking lots, toilet/bathroom were all really good taken care of, as well as the little shop close by & a few restaurants. It's super easy to wake up early the next day... More

On September 12th we were sorry to realise, that, inspite of the beautiful nature Yosemite has to offer, the Park was under construction, so some roads were closed and the access to the main parking lot in the villave was very busy. They were burning some wood, so there was smoke everywhere, and the traffic inside the park was awful.... More

My husband and I enjoyed the movie on the history of Yosemite. It offered great information on the formation of Yosemite as a park. (The theater is behind the visitors center and does not require tickets and you can walk right in.) The bookstore has a nice selection of maps and books about the park. The village also has a...

While the highlights of Yosemite a national Park were breathtaking....despite the long winding rood to get to them, that had me trying out to be a race car driver for hours, the actual village was a huge disappointment. Construction meant we had to park on the road, quite a walk away from the village. Signs were lacking everywhere, so despite... More

Ate at the cafeteria, The food is very pricey and they seem to take advantage of their location by overcharging for what you get. Not very tasty and sub-par ingredients. However, if you bring your own food and don't worry about their options, then you'll have a great experience.

The parking was a nightmare, but it's a great place to relax and recharge your batteries. Catch up on food, water and a 'body break'.

Due to queues at the grill bar, we bought food from Village Store. Excellent choice of prepared salads, snacks and fresh fruit. There was hot chicken and other meal choices. Good value too, considering it is a hot tourist spot. Would definitely recommend and without the queuing!

The village is steeped with history and loved the rustic buildings, cool to see a bear trap. Glad we stopped by.

This is kind of what you'd expect for a National Park shopping area. The store is here, as is the Ansel Adams Gallery, and some casual dining options. If you're staying for a while in the Valley, you'll probably have to visit here. We did once - and that was enough. We did stop at the store a couple of... More

Yosemite Village is a great place to spend a day or two - there's loads to do. You can hike, bike ride, horse ride and rock climb and once you've tired yourself out doing that you can have a look round the few shops (which are quite reasonably priced considering the lack of competitions) and then have something to eat...
