Yosemite camping in Yosemite National Park is among the finest ways to truly experience the magnificent park. There are thirteen campgrounds in Yosemite National Park and with over 1,000 active campsites, that number can appear overwhelming at first glance. There is no doubt that camping at Yosemite National Park will be a memorable experience that you and your family will never forget. But how do you go about choosing the right campsite, the right site, and make sure you have all of your bases covered when it comes time to pay for your reservation?
When it comes to booking your Yosemite campground reservations, there are many things you need to take into consideration. First of all, what is the peak season at Yosemite National Park? The peak season is May through September and June through July is the earliest time at which campers may book a reservation. Peak season is also the driest time at which you can book a reservation. Camping in the late spring or summer is generally not advised due to the extremely high reservations rates.
Another thing you need to take into consideration is whether you are planning on staying for a week or a month. There is a difference between a one-night stay and a three-night stay; a one night stay at a campground may require reservations but a three-night stay is usually not going to require any. Another thing you should take into consideration is if you are planning on hiking, biking, or taking a bus into Yosemite National Park. If you plan on biking, you need to take a day or two off of work and spend that time early in the morning and late in the afternoon taking pictures, camping, and listening to the sounds of nature. If you plan on hiking, you should ensure you make campings in the morning, early afternoon, and in the evening before you leave for your hike.
