360° VR Panoramas of Yosemite and the Central Sierra Nevada
The Pines Campgrounds in Yosemite Valley
Yosemite National Park, California

Campgrounds once filled much of the east end of Yosemite Valley, but many sites have been removed. The two River campgrounds were swept away in the 1997 flood and not rebuilt. Housekeeping Camp offers three-walled structures with a canvas roof and is favored by families. Camp Four, near Yosemite Falls, is a walk-in camp area popular with climbers.

Upper Pines is the largest drive-in campground and is open all year. It is supplemented seasonally by Lower Pines and North Pines.
