A long drive from San Francisco but absolutely worth it. We stayed in the park at Yosemite Valley Lodge and although the room was not ready until 5 pm the rooms was more than adequate. More variety in the menu would have been appreciated after three days in the park.

The trip was planned months before the fires started. Fortunately, there was only one small /contained hot spot. Smoke was still hanging in the air, so long scenic views were sparse. It was great to see the National Park ! Do put this park on your to do list.

I visited this huge park with my family and relatives in the California. It’s a worth place to visit. Views of the rocky mountains are beautiful and so scenic. Park is packed in the summer. Weather is too warm and visit could be better by September and October. A park for all ages. Would recommend.

Yosemite is a Top 3 park for me and this was my first visit in over 15 years snd my first with my family. We came a week after the park reopened after the Ferguson Fire and crowds seemed low. We stayed at Half Dome Village and it was a good base camp. The sights were awesome but the waterfalls dry this time of year. I'd plan on winter or spring next time.
