The Yosemite section is currently under construction. However, we have left some information up that you can still use for trip planning. Thanks for visiting Parkcamper.com.

Yosemite is truly a crown jewel in the National Park system. Designated a National Park in 1892, Yosemite is one of the oldest parks in the system. It features huge lush meadows, handsome granite peaks, the worlds largest trees and North America's largest waterfall. This is the kind of place you can take a kid and get the outdoors to stay with them for a lifetime. Yosemite is truly a park of superlatives, and a top ten national park.
