We were fortunate to get a site for our 30' fifth wheel in Yosemite Valley, there are very few sites that can accommodate us. North Pines is smaller and a little more private than the other two valley campgrounds and is very conveniently located to bike paths, mirror lake and happy isles. There are a few sites along the river, which are very nice. Wi-Fi is available at Camp Curry guest lounge. We camped at North Pines Campground (NPS Campgroiund) in a Fifth Wheel.

We liked camping here and enjoyed all the sights. You can ride shuttle buses everywhere. We were in the first row (100s) which is right next to the stables, with a corresponding odor. Don't book in the 200s unless you have a very small rig and can make the hairpin turn. The new generator hours are 7-9 AM, 12-2 PM, 5-7 PM. It was the first week in June but the temp hit 95 on the day we left. Next time we'll try May. Bring mosquito repellent. We camped at North Pines Campground (NPS Campgroiund) in a Travel Trailer.

This was a very nice campground in Yosemite park. All of the sites have a picnic bench, fire ring and a large bear box. It is close to everything and the park shuttle stops nearby. Spotty cell phone service within the campground, but nearby Camp Curry has a lounge available for all guests with both wireless internet and cell phone service. We would stay here again. We camped at North Pines Campground (NPS Campgroiund) in a Motorhome.

What an amazing experience! The drive there is a little harrowing with all the curves and narrow roads, but if you take your time it's all good. Lots of rental units (RV's) here too. Dump station and fresh potable water is available at Upper Pines (right around the corner) so you don't need to pack in/out all your "fluids". Everyone was respectful of quiet times, and they ask you to not run your generator for more than 45 minutes at a time (they don't want people just continually running their generators all day long). Some sites are very tight with trees, and some are short, so make sure you have a site that will fit your rig. Also, half of the campground was flooded due to high snow pack. This was not so much of a challenge as there are lot's of people who don't show for their reservations so even though the park was sold out, there were lot's of spaces (people moved spots too). Rangers and camp hosts are great, too! Bring your bike as things are spaced pretty far apart. Bears, deer, etc. in the camp sites, and waking up to look at half dome and Yosemite Falls around the corner can't be beat! We camped at North Pines Campground (NPS Campgroiund) in a Motorhome.

This is the only way to stay in the park. If you try one of the campground outside the park with hookups, you are looking at an hour drive each way. No fun. We camped at North Pines Campground (NPS Campgroiund) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful campground with many trees, some waterfront sites, and views of the giant granite cliffs that are Yosemite. There is much wildlife (including a bear in the campground both nights we were there). Free shuttle to other points in Yosemite is available at the campground entrance. From an RV point of view, you need to be aware that: there are no hook-ups, no dump station (though there is one in Yosemite at another campground) and the roads through this park are extremely tight. We had to maneuver through two trees that were barely far enough apart for the motorhome to fit. We camped at North Pines Campground (NPS Campgroiund) in a Motorhome.

Some of the sites I rate a 6 and some a 10, depends on which one you get. No matter which one you get though, staying in the park is a 10. With everything to see and do we weren't in our site much. At Upper Pines Campground (about 100 yards
away) there is potable (drinking) water to fill your tanks with and a dump station. You can rent a raft $13.50/person, or bring your own and pay $2/person to take the shuttle back. Bring bikes, the park shuttle buses are too crowded. I definitely recommend staying in the park. We camped at North Pines Campground (NPS Campgroiund) in a Motorhome.
