Housekeeping Camp Details
Each of the 266 units in the Housekeeping Camp area can accommodate up to six people. The units consist of three concrete walls, a concrete floor, double canvas roof and a fourth curtained wall. The curtain separates the sleeping area from a covered patio area with a privacy fence that's furnished with picnic table and bear-proof food storage containers. Please help us keep our wildlife wild by storing your food properly. We recommend using sealed plastic containers for storing your food inside the bear-resistant lockers. This makes it easier to keep your food organized, and away from campground critters.

The sleeping area has 1 bunk bed (with 2 stacked twin mattresses), a double bed, table, chairs, mirror, electrical lights and outlets.  Two additional cots may be added to sleep a total of 6.  Housekeeping Camp's lodging does not include linens and daily housekeeping service, despite the camp's interesting name. There are no televisions or telephones. Central restrooms and shower facilities with soap and towels are just a short walk away. Bedpacks consisting of 2 sheets, 2 blankets and 2 pillows may be rented for $2.50 per night - subject to availability.

For more Housekeeping Camp lodging information, please inquire at the front desk, or when making your reservations.

Firewood Information

In an effort to protect Yosemite from invasive species, it is advised that you purchase your firewood at or near your camping destination.  Firewood can carry insects and diseases that threaten the health of Yosemite’s environment.  You can make a difference by buying and burning your firewood locally.  Local firewood is available at most stores in Yosemite.  For more information, visit the National Park Service website.
