Yosemite is an amazing park but if you really want to experience it you need to stay inside the park, otherwise you will waste multiple hours per day driving in and out. Camp 4 is cheap and its amazing. You share your ground with other people which forces people to interact and have fun! Love National Parks check out my... More

Just completed a four day stay here and thought I would post a few tips about the first come first serve process. *Number of Available Spots* The Ranger posts the number of available spots that are scheduled to open up the next day on the kiosk window (see picture) before she leaves each day. On Monday there were 122 spots,... More

Camp 4 is located in the heart of the valley, a short walk from Yosemite Lodge. Originally, our group were to stay in Upper Pines, but through misinformation from the fine individuals of Recreation.gov, we were stranded without a campsite until a knowledgeable park ranger instructed us to try our luck at Camp 4. The campground is on a first... More

We were essentially ridiculously lucky, arriving at 10 and waiting 45 minutes for a slot.. But beware - we were the last people to get a spot and others behind us were turned away. The people in the long queue before us had been there since 5am (the ones at the front) - and had assured themselves a spot.. But... More

It is much better than I thought. Very civilised camping site. It was cheap clean and well organised. It's first come first serve. It's quite busy better go early. No shower on the site. It's 3mins walk to Yosemite lodge which is the main dining area.

There were 52 people in line already and they allowed 84 people that day, so we luckily got in no problem. The 84th person probably got there around 7:30-7:45.

Last weekend, I stayed at this campsite for 2 nights. I arrived at Yosemite very late at night, so I was expecting all the campsites to be full and was already preparing to stay in my car for the night. During a midnight hike, we came across this campsite and found that there was still plenty of room for us.... More
