Campgrounds At Yosemite National Park

Lower Pines

To confuse you, there are three campgrounds with 'pines' in the name; We believe Lower Pines is the best because it is the smallest with only 73 sites.

Upper Pines

It is the largest of The Pines Campground, with 240 sites, and is so crowded it could be compared to a city. you may be surprised to know.

North Pines

This campground is one of the medium sized pine trees and feel free to build a Goldilocks campfire This campground is located between the Merced River and Tenaya Creek.

White Wolf

An hour's drive away, White Wolf Canyon, at 8,000 feet, offers a more esoteric experience. The campground is in the woods off Tioga Road, between Tuolumne Meadows and Crane Flat.

Yosemite Creek

Hardcore tourist alert! There is no potable water at this campground; the enjoyable art of filtering, boiling, or iodine-treating water taken from the creek must be learned.


Close to the historic Wawona area of the park, this campground is 45 minutes from the canyon. You'll be on the South Fork of the Merced River at an elevation of 4,000 feet.

Camp Four

Not the most creative name, but this Yosemite Valley campground has an innovative reservation system. From late May through September, campsites are reservation only.

Hodgdon Meadow

This is a campground near the Big Oak Flat entrance to the park, located along Big Oak Flat Road. It is at an altitude of 4,900 feet.

Tamarack Flat

A relief for some is that Crocktail Creek is a 21+-only lazy river, and optional beverages make the 700-foot glide more comfortable.

Tuolumne Meadows

Yosemite's largest campground with 304 drive-in campsites, seven group sites, four horse sites and 21 backpacker sites, Tuolumne Meadows is on Tioga Road.
