Yosemite High Sierra Camps Questions


I have a chance to be at the High Sierra this summer. Just a few questions to those who many have already experienced this:

1. Do the camps carry drinking water to refill for next day's hike?

2. Any provision at the camps to charge camera? Or should the camera be sparingly used?

3. The HSC asks hikers to bring sleeping sacks. Are blankets provided?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, they do have drinking water---each camp has a spigot where you can fill your water bottles.

The tent cabin beds have blankets and pillows. We bring our regular sleeping bags, not just a sleep sack. It gets quite cold at night, especially at Vogelsang and May Lake which are up high.

I am afraid I do not know the answer the the battery charger question. Certainly there is no electricity in the sleeping tents. I do not recall seeing any outlets in the dining tent, but they may exist. Best to be safe and start with a fully charged battery, and use it wisely until you find out if there is a chance to re-charge.
