Don't wait any longer! The High Sierra Camps are an amazing way to experience the Yosemite High Country, all of the camps are perfectly located in surreal locations with everything you need to feel right at home. Warm cabins, clean restrooms, knowledgeable camp hosts and fantastic food help make the experience all the more enjoyable!

You are greeted after a 6-10 mile hike with cool lemonade! The staff at each camp clearly love where they are and what they're doing. The food was delicious and fresh...and plentiful. The tents were cozy and the wood stove made evenings much warmer. The three camps we went to (Glen Aulin, May Lake, Sunrise) each had a different flavor,... More

I entered the lottery for the fifth time for the independent hike and didn't win (again.) However, as an alternative I also tried for the northern saddle trip. I was awarded the northern saddle trip, but decided that I had already seen those High Sierra Camps so I switched to the southern saddle trip. I stayed at Tuolumne High Sierra... More

For 35 years I have spent summers and winters in Yosemite, both The Valley and High Sierra Camp....but never beyond Tuloumne. Finally we did "The Loop"...Every aspect of our treck to each of the high sierra camps was wonderful and magical

Sunrise Camp is in a beautiful setting, worth the effort of hiking in and out. Food is amazing, too. Staff are very helpful in suggesting and describing hikes. Vogelsang is also stunning, though a higher elevation.

We stayed at Glen Aulin, where the waterfall was our background sound and at May Lake where the full moon reflected the mountain tops in exact form back in the water. Staff were extremely helpful and every night and morning the food was incredibly good.

Absolutely amazing trip. Landscapes, guides, food: everything was incredible! We stayed in the following camps: Glen Aulin, May lake, Sun Rise. Each one is different (waterfall, lake, plateau). It is the very best way to leave a real Yosemite experience (unlike in the valley...)

Tough hikes, with no need to carry shelter or meals, each day arriving to wonderful hospitality and shelter. I'd prefer to give it a low rating so as to keep the High Sierra Camps the best kept secret around. The lack of crowds is a significant lure to these camps, yet the capacity is set just right for good company.

These camps are the ultimate way to enjoy the backcountry and still have creature comforts. Food, service and lodging are beyond what you might expect. As a single female travelling alone it took any worry out of setting up camp alone. As an added benefit, if you do not show up at one of the camps, they will send folks... More

This was my first stay at a High Sierra Camp. I was exceptionally impressed and pleased. And I'd come with high expectations based upon comments from friends. The staff were all the finest and the facilities meticulously maintained. Everything seemed effortless to the visitor, which was amazing in this remote and spectacular remote location. Food was exceptional and varied --... More
