    My wife and I spent 4 days hiking from Tuolumne Meadows to these three camps, some of the most beautiful trails we have hiked. Each day was a good day hike, 8 to 10 miles, with quite a bit of elevation change. We just took our time, it is all about enjoying the hike, not setting speed records. The staff...

    Great hiking trip. Loved all the info that the ranger had. 5 days, tuolomne, sunrise, 2 days at Merced Camp, Volgasang. Blankets, comforter, and pillow were provided. Definitely pack a sleep sack. The food was amazing, the lunch they give you has enough food, so we didn't pack extra snacks. They also provide a washcloth. Sunrise has showers but can...

    Each year we sign up for a guided HSC trip and we finally won! Our trip was a 5 night loop from Tuolemne, Sunrise, Merced, to Voglesang and back with Ranger James Mc Grew. Our group included a wonderful group of like-minded travelers that started with a campfire session with our ranger the night before our hiking. He oriented us...

    We got a cancellation reservation to stay at Vogelsang and grabbed it. We stayed 1 night at auto lumen Meadows lodge to get used to the altitude and started our hike the next morning. No need for a tent or camp stove --they provide dinner and breakfast and you can buy sack lunches. We arrived in the afternoon, after climbing...

    I've been hiking the High Sierra Camps for years. I LOVE them but getting a reservation requires persistence and a flexible calendar. I've never won their lotto and typically reserve a camp based on someone else's cancelation. I lived/worked in Yosemite Valley during my college breaks and became interested in climbing to the High Sierra Camp much later in life....

    We spent two nights at Sunrise Camp. The setting was gorgeous, overlooking a meadow with granite peaks all around. The tents were basic but comfortable, with lots of blankets and a small wood stove. The meals, served family style, were wonderful and plentiful. The small staff did an incredible job. I would love to go back. We spent one night...

    Beautiful surroundings-beautiful country-very good experience. Two nights are needed for a hike to the top of Mt. Hoffman. Very difficult to get spots in the lottery. We took advantage of the cancelations

    At Glen Aulin, we first spied the waterfall and swimming hole with sunbathers. Then as we entered the Mess Hall, we were greeted with a big smile and a cup of lemonaide. Wonderful after the long hike from Tuolemne Meadows. The tent cabins are comfortable. Great option for the over 65 set who can't carry a full pack. Food was...

    Camping in backpacking territory without carrying equipment! Plus great fresh food cooked and cleaned up after by the hosts!! Best location ever with streams, waterfalls, pools at their base, stunning vistas of rocky crags.

    We were lucky enough to win the lottery, the first time we applied, of all 5 camps consecutively. After discussion with others, that is unusual. We had a great time. The mostly young folks who run the camps are very friendly and professional. Food is better than expected and was excellent at Vogelsang. Served family style. Beds, blankets and comforters...
