A really fun place to stay in Yosemite
I was dubious about this place when I booked it as I don't like camping and I do like my creature comforts, but actually I really loved it and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Yosemite. Firstly, it's a really affordable option in Yosemite where the hotels and lodges are pretty pricey. It's also a great place to be based if you are planning to hike. There are lots of hikes that can easily be reached on foot from the camp so you don't need to drive to a trail head to start your walk. (We recommend Four Mile Trail up to Glacier Point and the Panorama Trail back down.) The beds are actually really comfortable and, considering the conditions, the camps are very clean. The bedding is clean and comfortable and we slept really well. There are lots of toilet blocks which meant you didn't have to go far to use the restrooms, brush your teeth, etc. The showers are totally fine - again better than I expected. Nice and hot. This is all the practical stuff, but I would also recommend staying there as it was really fun! There's a great atmosphere and lots of people around, especially if you go during the holidays or at the weekend. We built a fire (they have all the supplies you need in their on-site store) and did a BBQ. It's really fun to sit under the stars by the fire drinking G&Ts from camping mugs! Tips: go prepared if you can (camping gear, food, etc). Bring lots of sanitising wipes for the picnic table. It gets really dirty from all the fires.

Nice camping experience while travelling
The park was excellent and was simple but effective. However for the price I would assume that the toilet facilities would be kept clean throughout the stay. The staff were very busy however this does not excuse them being rude and unhelpful. As an international traveler, they could have been more understanding and more helpful.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The location is good but tent dirty.
Well located in Yosemite valley. It is however a basic tent which was dirty. There were strict rules about bear boxes and fires which were demanded of you-treated like a child. It was pretty much as described but dirtier than expected. We reserved a cot as did the person behind us and yet did not show up on their system. Not their problem! We could prove it however this didn't make a difference. Their solution was to share a single bed. In the end a mattress on the dirty, dusty floor was best we could get. Bunk beds unsafe with no rails-our 14y old fell out! Not helpful and brusk. Confrontational. Ran out of linen and cots. Towels rough and had to fetch-not at shower block. Fire wood etc expensive.

4/5 Good

My kind of "camping"
This is camping, not a hotel. Camping with beds is such an upgrade from the hard ground or even air mattresses. Hot showers, plenty of toilet facilities, electricity, very friendly staff, and then being surrounded by the magnificence of Yosemite -- what more could anyone ask for?!

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Housekeeping Camp is a great spot for enjoying Yosemite at a reasonable rate without having to bring your own camping equipment. The shop has everything you need at good prices and the showers are warm. Pleasantly surprised and we enjoyed ourselves.
