Finding a place to sleep in Yosemite is the most difficult hurdle in experiencing this beautiful park. Campgrounds and hotels book full 5 months in advance, making last-minute trips to the park very difficult. However, if you are willing to put in a some hiking miles, you can camp legally and peacefully almost any day of the year.
- Must comply with all park regulations
I am available 24/7 via phone during your trip. Due to park regulations, however, I am not able to physically attend you in the park at any time.
I am an avid camper and adventurist living near Yosemite National Park. My free time is spent wandering through wilderness, rock climbing Yosemite's world-class granite, and road tripping to all the amazing locations in the Sierras.
I love to help guests make the best of the park and avoid the crowds. Reach out to say hello! I aim to make your trip unique and unforgettable in a non-traditional style.
