Landmark Tourist Spot
The main developed area in the otherwise pristine nature of Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Village offers useful facilities for your visit. Although the buildings maintain the rustic nature of the park, they cater to guests with modern amenities. Stop in the visitor center to get maps and other valuable information from park rangers, fuel up in one of the restaurants, or purchase Yosemite souvenirs in one of the gift shops. Stores here also sell supplies for camping and other outdoor activities, so you may be able to purchase any important pieces of equipment that you forgot at home.

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.

  • Love it. Great place for picnicking and hiking. Some really long trails near the village. The cafe inside has pretty decent food and lots of snacks and souvenirs to take home.
  • Love going there. We like very close to Yosemite so we go about 4 times a year. I love getting back to nature!
  • Nice place, good enough eateries, gorgeous views of course, I really liked living there! Though the pic of the place is a little deceptive; the chapel isn't exactly in the village, but it's nearby.
  • Love camping, and there is so much to see. The scenery is beautiful!!
  • Our visit to the park was a bit confusing due to all the construction. I assume when they are all done it will be much better. I recall the one way streets are already confusing enough without the construction. Yosemite is a great place though, so much to look at and so much to see. The cool crisp mountain air is a major plus as well.
