Yosemite High Sierra Camps allow you to explore Yosemite’s vast high country, free of the burden of a heavy overnight backpack. Located high in the Yosemite wilderness and accessible only by foot or saddle, each of Yosemite's High Sierra Camps feature a unique and spectacular setting. Relieved of the weight of tents and cooking gear, you’ll find more time to enjoy the scenery and spend less time wondering when you can drop your pack.
High Sierra Camps are spaced roughly 5.7 – 10 miles apart along a loop trail that takes you through some of the most beautiful and scenic regions of the park (see overview map). For those new to backcountry travel, or who would love to know more about the natural history, and stories behind the things they’ll see, guided saddle trips and hiking trips are available.
Overnight accommodations at Yosemite's High Sierra Camps include a full dinner and breakfast, served up family-style in cozy dining tents. People camping in nearby backpacker campgrounds can also share in these hearty meals as dinner and breakfast may be purchased separately from the camp's lodging option. (Advance reservations are required.) Box lunches for the next day on the trail are also available at an additional cost and may be ordered the night before departure.
Due to high demand for these historic Yosemite High Sierra Camps, reservations are available on a lottery basis. However, if you miss the lottery process, please check during the summer season for last minute availability at the individual camps.
