Definitely pop in if you can. Spots are a first-come first-served basis so line up early in the morning (office opens at 8:30 from memory) if you want to guarantee a campsite. You can book for up to 7 days. They have bear-proof food lockers and toilets there. The mentality here is very unique. Different to the fancier more expensive...

Yosemite is an amazing park but if you really want to experience it you need to stay inside the park, otherwise you will waste multiple hours per day driving in and out. Camp 4 is cheap and its amazing. You share your ground with other people which forces people to interact and have fun! Love National Parks check out my...

If you are genuinly caring about community spirit and "keeping traditions" and don't know about camp 4 - read up abouit it and stay here. If you are the camper that needs your daily shower and don't like to talk to neighbours - stay AWAY (please, it's for...

Just completed a four day stay here and thought I would post a few tips about the first come first serve process. *Number of Available Spots* The Ranger posts the number of available spots that are scheduled to open up the next day on the kiosk window (see picture) before she leaves each day. On Monday there were 122 spots,...

Camp 4 is located in the heart of the valley, a short walk from Yosemite Lodge. Originally, our group were to stay in Upper Pines, but through misinformation from the fine individuals of Recreation.gov, we were stranded without a campsite until a knowledgeable park ranger instructed us to try our luck at Camp 4. The campground is on a first...

We were essentially ridiculously lucky, arriving at 10 and waiting 45 minutes for a slot.. But beware - we were the last people to get a spot and others behind us were turned away. The people in the long queue before us had been there since 5am (the ones at the front) - and had assured themselves a spot.. But...

It is much better than I thought. Very civilised camping site. It was cheap clean and well organised. It's first come first serve. It's quite busy better go early. No shower on the site. It's 3mins walk to Yosemite lodge which is the main dining area.

We left SF at 3am and arrived to Camp 4's first come first serve camp site at 6:15am on Saturday morning in mid July. There were 52 people in line already and they allowed 84 people that day, so we luckily got in no problem. The 84th person probably got there around 7:30-7:45. The ranger arrived a little after 8am...
