North Pines Campground Reviews & Ratings

  • Amazing stay in the heart of Yosemite Valley. Nice campsites with ample open shade in pine forest. Orderly and well maintained by engaged staff and volunteers. Free bus shuttle runs 7a to 10p, providing easy access to sites and experiences in valley. Bring your bike and pedal throughout the valley floor. Safe for families, elders, solo travellers. Refreshing places for all to enjoy playing and floating in slow-flowing fresh water. Many folks from all over the world added interesting perspectives. Could see Yosemite Falls from inside my tent, and fell asleep to the gentle sound of the Merced River: $26 a night!

  • Ideally situated campground with friendly hosts who were dedicated to keeping the black bears at bay. We had a few spots of which some were very spacious and some were a little more neighbourly. Within walking distance to Yosemite village where you can get the free shuttle. There is a shuttle stop at the campground but we found it was always too busy to actually stop there.

  • I have been coming to Yosemite since I was a baby. It's a family tradition that dates back to my great grand parents. You couldn't pick a better place to get right with nature. There is so much to do that you could camp for 2 weeks and still not run out of things to see or places to hike. There are squirrels galore! They're aggressively adorable trying to get some of your food so be aware. This year a bear came into our campground and knocked over our bbq at 6am and scared us awake (don't worry, they're scared of flashlights and ran off). There are restrooms close by with sinks (no soap, bring your own). And there are no showers here. You'll have to walk, bike or take the shuttle to camp curry where it's $5 to get clean. It's extremely difficult to get reservations. They book up fast months in advance so you'll have to plan your stay. Site 111 is RIGHT by the river and has an amazing beachy area. Please be courteous of the quiet hours (10 to 6). If you're a light sleeper like me, consider bringing ear plugs! Not everyone adheres to the posted quiet time.

  • If you need a REAL vacation and escaping from reality while taking in tranquility this is for you!

  • Convenient campground in the center of Yosemite. Reservations are very competitive and fill up within minutes of opening. They open up 5 months in advance at 7am (PT) on the 15th of the month. Things to know: -Campgrounds have bathrooms with running water, this includes water bottle filling stations -Bathrooms have TP & hand dryers, but no soap -It can get COLD at night. Check the weather & bring several blankets -Bears are not an issue at the park. Rangers have a solid routine to keep them away, patrolling the area & shooting them with rubber bullets before they even get close. -Curry village is half a mile away. Has a convenience store, souvenirs, places to eat for breakfast/lunch/dinner($10-$15 ea) -Curry village has free showers with soap & shampoo dispensers. There are walls/curtains around each shower. Towels can be taken from their office... which isn't always open. So I recommend you bring your own towels/washcloth. -Shuttle stops are nearby & can be used... but driving around the park is really easier if you can fit your group into 1 or 2 cars. All the sites have parking, albeit competitive at times. -Glacier Point is my favorite viewpoint here. -Theres a 1.1 mile hike by Glacier Point called Senteniel Hill that puts you at the top of the whole park. Not ideal for little kids or elderly, but worth it if you can manage!
