Ask A Question


I can answer questions about campsites, reservations, things to do and places to go in Yosemite National Park. I can also answer questions about the same for the California State Beaches in Southern and Central California. My nickname is "Kamping Kahuna". No relocation/moving questions, please.

Experience in the area

I have camped many times in Yosemite, including the valley and the high country. I am well versed in the ins and outs of getting reservatios, which is half of the adventure.


Not that this matters, but I have a Bachelor's Degree (and a Masters in the University of Life)

Oh, Tim, I'm SO jealous.    We went a couple years ago, and need to go back.    Upper Pines campground is a great place to stay. Catch the shuttle at Happy Isles Nature Center, and you can get all over

2010-06-08 Camping Tips and Bear Boxes:

Hi Dave,    That's quite a bit of info there. I'll do my best to get it all in.    1. Crane Flat is half reserved, half first-come/first served. You can drive into Yosemite knowing that you have reservations

2010-04-30 Planning Ahead for Yosemite:

Hi Maggie,    I agree! The Ahwahnee is beautiful, but it's VERY pricey. We tend to stay in the campgrounds in our RV, then ride bikes or take the free shuttle to the Ahwahnee to enjoy the lobby and surrounding
