  • This is one of my favorite locations within the Valley. It is a wonderful spot for photography and anyone wishing to take a break and take in the tranquility of the valley. Take your time and explore ...  more »
  • In addition it can be seen from the above, we can also see this from the bottom of the Valley. Our guide stopped at a point on the river where we can see a view of the Valley. It seems indeed spot becomes the main attraction in the Park because we could see the Valley and its famous cliffs of Yosemite National Park. The view is also beautiful like a painting

  • We stopped to take photos as we left the park on Northside Drive. The backdrop of the majestic rocks was framed with fall foliage and the gentle Merced River.  more »

Where to stay in Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park offers something for everyone. Choose from upscale or historic hotels, a well-appointed lodge, motel rooms, rustic cabins, canvas tent cabins, and developed campgrounds. Yosemite Village in the heart of the valley is the most convenient place to stay, but other accommodations line the roads leading to the village. If you can't secure a place inside the park, try the various lodges, inns, bed and breakfasts, cabins, cottages, and motels on the roads leading in from the west. Staying any further out can cost you valuable time that you could be spending hiking, biking, and sightseeing. To escape from the crowds in the valley, reserve a campsite at Crane Flat or Hodgdon Meadow, which are far enough out to provide solitude but close enough to reach major valley attractions in less than half an hour. Campgrounds along Tioga Road see even fewer crowds. If you plan to visit in summer, you must reserve accommodations (even campsites) well in advance, as Yosemite remains extremely popular with both visitors from afar and those based in California.
