My husband & I were in North Pines during our anniversary trip to the Sierras and of course Yosemite is our favorite stay. North Pines is between 2 rivers and the most ideal spot to camp although all 3 PINES campgrounds in the valley are just 5 star quality! We had a view of the river and watched people float... More

Thankfully I had checked the forums and knew to book this 5 months in advance! We were lucky enough to score a site by the river #522, and it was perfect. We were in an RV - the site was fairly level and easy to back in to. Although we spent a fair amount of time exploring the park, it... More

We booked this as soon as bookings were open and are so glad we got this site. The campgrounds are well kept and quiet, great for riding bikes and relaxing. We stayed two nights and could of stayed a few weeks we loved it here! We had bikes so getting around the national park was easy and safe. Loved looking... More

Stayed one night as walk-up at Wawona and then two nights at North Pines Campground. No hook-ups which we knew in advance but, until you don't have facilities, you don't realise how much you miss them! OK place, a little bit cramped but still good location. Of real note was the ranger talk on bears which was led by Karen... More

We had an amazing campsite, #502. It was next to Tenaya creek close to where it meets the Merced river. It was pretty private but other campsites across the road were very close together. So it depends on where your campsite is located. Also, the weather was perfect for early April. The afternoons reached the upper 70s. We were truly... More

The natural beauty of Yosemite speaks for itself. The campground however was such a letdown. After years of wanting to go back to Yosemite and persuading my hubby to camp, we spent very smoky, dusty night in the valley and couldn't wait to move on. There's nothing that can be done about drought conditions, of course. However, how, in a... More

Is not going to be very private. Backing a camper into Most of the Yosemite camprgrounds are tight due to rocks and trees. But that is part of the experience.... Bathrooms are just ok...but they are flush. Carry your own soap and TP if you don't like single ply. Keep in mind where you are... In one of the most... More

We camped in the North Pines Campground and you are literally 10 feet away from your neighbors. The roads and spots are small and tight and hard to back into due to the trees. The restroom building close to use was lacking a water spout. You had to walk quite a distance to find a water spout. I was surprised... More

Outstanding location right in the valley of the national park. You can reach many trailheads right from the campground. Clean quiet campground that was ideal for a 30 foot motor home. Has a great time with our four kids and the bus system was great to get around the valley.
