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 the 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.

NOTE: Please do not bring space heaters, by doing so you risk the possibility of a power outage in your Housekeeping Unit.

Standard Unit

There are 266 units in the Housekeeping Camp, which can sleep up to six guests. Units feature a bunk bed, a double bed, table, chairs, mirror, electrical lights, and outlets.
