I've been to Housekeeping Camp 3 times each time has been great. This is Camping without a tent so be prepared. I like it because it's away from busy Curry Village and Yosemite Village but those areas are easily accessed by the shuttle. Each tent cabin has a fire pit which we used nightly for a family campfire. Having electricity...

We had a river site right by the road... Tents are quite nice with ligths and power outlets, we brought our own heater and that was no problem. Fire pit and table what more do you need? Shower and restroom are old but it still works.

Our family outing was the best at housekeeping camp. There was 12 of us and we stayed on four sites steps away from the river. It was relaxing and the sites and views at the site were inspirational. We can't wait to go back in 6 months. We are hooked.

This was so much fun! Definitely take a lake side tent if you can get one. The view is great, and it's a bit more private. There is a bridge that takes you to the village market. We stayed here 2 nights after camping in Upper Pines, so we had gear. If you don't have anything you can rent all...

This one is for someone who likes the idea of ready to occupy tents. Its furnished in terms of bed, pillows, and blankets. They have a fireplace for each tent and have a decent restroom and bathing facility. They even have outdoor tables attached with chairs.

I read lot of reviews on Google, Trip Advisor and other sites about the beauty of Yosemite Park. Since we couldn’t get any lodging in the Valley, the fly choice disappeared from our plans very fast and we opted for road trip. That let us see two more parks on the way from BC to California, Mt. Rainier and Crater...

+ Beautiful location within Yosemite Valley - convenient and superb views. + We had a riverside unit, which I would recommend. + Fire pit outside unit was brilliant (bring firewood as it's bloody expensive in the Valley), and they have relaxed the fire hours to all day now, so you can have morning fires. - Not really a negative, but...

The campsite where you'll be staying is very (very, very) basic& the tents have all seen a few dozen seasons come and go. Things are a little worn down as a result & some of the brochures overstate conditions of the facilities. Set your expectations accordingly & bring a few cleaning things along if 'dirty and dusty' are issues for...

Wow! What a location! We got 'tent' 508 for our stay which was right by the river with a toilet block behind but far enough away for it not to bother us. Each 'tent' has a bunk bed and a double bed, storage, a single light inside, one inside and with an electricity socket for small items. The entrance to...
