The cabins provide the privacy of a room with the openness and outdoor feeling of a tent. Basic but good furnishings with plenty of parking and storage for food. Perfect location for hiking to the trails and museums and shops. Lots of restroom facilities.

This was a great surprise for us! We flew in so had only the supplies we carried in our luggage and were able to have a great "camping experience" without the setting up of tents, etc. I am already trying to figure how we can get back to this area to do it again. Staff was friendly and helpful. Campground... More

We stayed at Housekeeping Camp for the first time this summer. Our cabin-tent was very close to the beach at Merced River. We loved walking there and enjoying the beautiful scenery and also star gazing at night. I had never been camping before. Housekeeping Camp is easier than pitching a tent but still getting the feeling of camping. Our beds... More

This place gets dusty but you will have NO problems! We loved our stay. Some things to know: top bunk has no ladder (you have to climb the shelves as a ladder, might be tough for some kids), must keep all toiletries and food in the bear lockers, very close to everything and shuttle comes frequently. This is a very... More

Location is great, river was fun and easy check in and out! Great for glamping. No tent needed and yet you are sleeping outdoors. You can still have smores and then sleep in cot! Best of both worlds, no need to pack the kitchen sink!

Housekeeping Camp next to the Merced River is lovely and I will most definitely return for the next Yosemite experience. We were two adults and two children. The canvas enclosed cabin-tents have two rooms, one for sleeping and one for eating and cooking, with hooks to hang all the wet bathing suits and towels. We rented a two burner stove... More

Perfect place to camp for those who still want the camping experience rather than just staying in a hotel. This place makes you feel like you are still actually camping without having to pitch a tent. Great place.

Maybe we just didn't get it. It seemed as though there were families there that really made it work, with additions to their cabins, extra security sheets and fairy lights etc. But for us, it was a nightmare. We had just left Curry village up the road, which had no further availability. We were told Housekeeping was equivalent. It was... More

A big step up from the Curry Village tent cabins. It's nice to be in close proximity to the Merced river. The fire circle with every unit really completes the camping experience. It was also nice to have an electric outlet to keep my phone charged.

My sister and I - both in our 50's - decided to stay at Housekeeping Camp just so we could be in the heart of Yosemite for a night or two, and not have to drive in and out of the park (we stayed in a very affordable B & B a couple of other nights, but the drive was... More
