Not for everyone, yet popular with thousands of people who come back to the same spots year after year, Housekeeping Camp is an unusual summertime accommodation for those who like the outdoors. A step above tent camping, these units are three-sided concrete structures with a tent roof. Each has a firepit, table, food storage and cooking area. They have a double bed and bunkbed setup for yor sleeping bags. Simple, but adequate, and close to nature. The crystal Merced River wraps around the Camp, with good beachfront for wading/swimming, and grand views of the cliffs above. LeConte Lodge is across the street for weekend evening programs. There's a shuttle stop, showers, a laundromat and a small camp store here. There's a bike trail across Southside Drive and a footbridge over the river towards the Ahwahnee and Yosemite Village.
