Additional Information

Please Note: The 2024 season will not be guided by a National Park Service Ranger, and as such the pricing now reflects the addition of a Yosemite Mountaineering School Guide. These guides are highly skilled and knowledgeable and look forward to sharing some of their favorite places in the Yosemite Wilderness with you on this incredible experience.

Environmental Stewardship
More than 13,000 visitors stay at the High Sierra Camps every year—and several thousand backpackers stop by for meals. We work hard to limit our impact on the fragile subalpine ecosystem by recycling and composting waste, and using solar-powered composting toilets.
Showers, Restrooms, & Laundry Facilities
A true luxury for any back country experience—showers are available at Merced Lake, May Lake and Sunrise Camps (subject to water availability). After you return from your day of adventuring, clean up with a nice shower and enjoy a delectable, hearty meal, your evenings will be filled with ranger-led campfire conversations about the surrounding wilderness.
All camps have restrooms. Merced Lake, Sunrise, and May Lake have basins for washing clothing.
