Upper Pines Campground is open year-round and has 238 campsites and is the largest of three campgrounds in the Yosemite Valley. The other two campgrounds are Lower Pines and North Pines. The campground has a dump station, flush toilets and drinking water.  Most of the campsites are shaded by tall Ponderosa pine trees.

North Pines campsites are good for tents, trailers and RVs (up to 30 feet). Each campsite has a table, fire ring/grill and food storage locker.  Upper Pines is quite popular and is a short walk to Curry Village where you can get a hot shower and some eats at restaurants.  Curry Village also has Wifi access, a grocery store, laundromat and cross-country ski rentals. Horse stables are also located nearby offering trail rides. And you can even rent a raft and float the Merced River.

World famous Yosemite National Park offers spectacular scenery and amazing wonders that boggle the imagination. Outdoor recreation includes hiking, backpacking, biking, kayaking, photography, climbing, rock climbing, horseback riding, fishing, nature exhibits, museums, camping and wildlife viewing. There are also many historic sits to visit throughout the Park.

    Officially, one of my California favorites. Very few are on a slope, and of those the slope is very mild. Fires in the rings are limited to between 5pm and 10pm, May through September. Definitely the cooler of the campgrounds in September as the cliffs put the campsites in shadow after 2-3pm; while the North and Lower pines campsites are in the sun until 5:30-6:30. Makes a big difference on the 90+ degree days. 2 shuttle stops are close by, #19 at front and #16 at back. Even got to meet Greg while walking the campgrounds, too!
