What can I say about housekeeping camp to prepare you,
it’s in a beautiful location, staff are helpful all camping amenities are available. I have camped many times and I am not the world best outdoor camper, I hate creepy crawlies and the thought of bears coming to eat me at night, is not my idea of fun. But being a mother of 3 boys I really did not have much choice and I felt to have the true experience of Yosemite I would go with it. At seeing our accommodation for the first time I was truly taken aback at how basic it really was. I did not have high expectations but to best describe it, it was like a coal bunker with a small piece of material covering some of the front. Once it goes dark it’s really dark and if I’m honest I was scared, to make it worse we had a very noisy crying baby in the bunker next door which did not help, my boys were convinced that the bears would here the noise and come looking for its meal the baby next door ! Its probably the worse night’s sleep I've ever had I don’t think I slept a wink, total contrast were my boys who loved every second of it and can’t wait to return. The showers are a must in Curry Camp basic but well looked after, also to escape the heat the pool in Curry Camp was refreshing. Glacier point starry night tour was lovely, and to see the sun setting in such a beautiful location is unforgettable. Lots of information on arrival of what not to do read it and abide by it, we are visitors in this beautiful location it should be respected.
Our family on a two week road trip (2 adults & 3 children) travelled from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon to Lake Havasu, Los Angeles, Yosemite, Santa Cruse then San Francisco if you need advice planning a similar trip feel free to ask questions.
