Operating Season:

Perfect for those who love camping outdoors but don’t want the hassle of setting up a tent, Housekeeping Camp is a Yosemite favorite. Perched alongside the Merced River in the middle of the Valley, the camp features three-sided concrete structures with canvas roofs and privacy curtains. Nearby sandy beaches are perfect for relaxing in the sun by the river. From Housekeeping Camp, you’ll have unmatched views of Yosemite Falls and Half Dome as you prepare your dinner on your campfire ring’s grill. Enjoy your meal on your covered patio as you take in the sights and sounds of Yosemite.

Each Housekeeping Camp unit features two electrical outlets, one inside the sleeping area and one outside. Each outlet has one plug. There is one light in the sleeping area and one light in the patio area.

NOTE: Please do not bring space heaters, as they can cause a power outage in your Housekeeping Unit. 

NOTE: Pets are not permitted at Housekeeping Camp, with the exception of service animals.
