Yosemite's High Sierra Camps allow you to explore Yosemite’s vast high country without 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 those who want 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 family-style in cozy dining tents. People camping in nearby backpacker campgrounds can also enjoy 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 may be ordered the night before departure for an additional cost.
