  • On September 12th we were sorry to realise, that, inspite of the beautiful nature Yosemite has to offer, the Park was under construction, so some roads were closed and the access to the main parking l...  more »
  • The site and the supremento expected a tourist village more committed to tourism. but I found it very simple and with few opportunities to restaurants.

  • Here we had a certain difficulty, because the GPS was sending us correctly, even with the correct address. There are many small alleys and I think that confused the GPS, we don't know. The existing signs in the Park, at least in this regard, also were not cooperating. But looking at the map on GPS and following intuition, we arrived at the Village Store, where there is a market that sells everything, including fast food (roast chicken etc) and also the Village Grill, a restaurant/cafeteria with various power options and where there are many tables on the outer side. In terms of food, another option, maybe even more interesting, is to take sandwiches or some other food ready and practice for the Park. This eliminates the need to shift to the market or restaurant/snack bar and it saves time, since so you have the freedom to eat anywhere. Just watch out for the bears kkkkk. Next trip, I certainly will do that.

  • It's Yosemite, what you can say! As expected, it is awesome. If you can come after some good rains the falls will be much better. As well known as Yosemite is, it isn't as busy as you might expect- which is great! From you car there is a great drive with many spots to pull-off, and it's not to hard to get some amazing pictures and see the wonderful views. Fill-up your gas before entering the park, but if needed gas is sold inside (you'll pay the premium for it though). There are also several places to camp, reserve a spot early if you can. A must see if you're in the Fresno area.
  • Great camping spot. You have to make line at 6:00 a.m. in hopes of getting a spot, only 56 numbers are given out.. $6 per person per day, restrooms are cleaned every day, toilet flushes and toilet paper provided.. no soap in restroom, bring your own.. squirrel are everywhere, storage bins provided at every camp site because of bears... great nature place will definitely go back..
  • If you visit California, this is the one place that I recommend above all else to visit. Landmarks such as El Capitain and Half Dome are spectacularly brilliant. Even though its a bit of a trek from most major cities, its well worth visiting, especially if you are into hiking and photography.
  • This is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Yosemite Village is great because even though it's in the middle of the forest, there is a sense of community with other visitors. There is everything from hiking, biking, canoeing, fine dining, and shows. I love coming here.
  • Absolutely stunningly gorgeous. And Yosemite Villiage has pretty much anything you could need while in the park.
