Discover Yosemite National Park, CA

Boasting more than four million annual visitors and attractions recognized around the world, Yosemite National Park is simply one of those destinations everyone should visit at least once in their life. Found in California’s western Sierra Nevada, roughly 140 miles southeast of Sacramento, this epic park boasts oft-photographed waterfalls, giant sequoias, dramatic valleys, and diverse wildlife.

As the park covers almost 750,000 acres, it’s worth renting a camper near Yosemite National Park to ensure that you see the best natural scenery the region has to offer. So search for RV rentals in Tuolumne County and keep reading to find out the best activities to experience and enjoy in this iconic national park.

Getting Outdoors

With nearly 1,200 square miles to explore, Yosemite National Park offers an abundance of recreational activities for outdoor enthusiasts. However, the best way to start your Yosemite visit is to check out some of the breathtaking waterfalls for which the park is famous.

It seems that there are spectacular waterfalls everywhere you look, but there are a few that are real must-visit locations. Yosemite Falls is, of course, the most well-known, with three separate falls cascading over more than 2,400 feet. Sentinel Falls, on the southern side of Yosemite Valley, plunges around 2,000 feet over several cascades and is well worth a visit.

And for something a little different, check out Horsetail Fall – when it reflects the glow of the mid-to-late February sunset, it almost appears as if it’s on fire.

If you want to immerse yourself in the natural scenery the park offers, strap on your boots and tackle some of the 750-plus miles of hiking trails that wind their way through Yosemite. The half-mile Bridalveil Fall Trail and one-mile Lower Yosemite Fall Trail are popular with those seeking a leisurely hike, while the roughly 16-mile trek to the summit of Half Dome offers a rewarding challenge for the physically fit.

Birdwatchers will also feel right at home when RV camping at Yosemite National Park. Some 165 species call the area home, not to mention another 100 species that pass through from time to time, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled. Who knows? You might even catch a glimpse of a peregrine falcon, a great gray owl, or a northern goshawk.

Camping at Yosemite National Park

If you want to rent a camper near Yosemite National Park, there are ten campgrounds throughout the park that welcome RVs and trailers.

However, please note that there are no hookups available in any Yosemite National Park RV campgrounds. You should also be aware that the maximum RV length in Yosemite Valley is 40 feet and the maximum trailer length is 35 feet, with only a small number of sites capable of accommodating vehicles of this size, so keep this in mind when choosing an RV rental.

Once you’ve chosen a camper for your Yosemite National Park adventure, you can choose from the following campgrounds:

  • Yosemite Valley Campgrounds. Options in this area of the park include the 238-site Upper Pines Campground, the 60-site Lower Pines Campground, and 81-site North Pines Campground. All sites provide a picnic table, fire ring, and animal-proof food locker.
  • Campgrounds south of Yosemite Valley. Wawona Campground offers 93 sites, some of which are open year-round, while Bridalveil Creek Campground is open from July to September and features 110 sites.
  • Campgrounds north of Yosemite Valley. RV camping is available at 105-site Hodgdon Meadow Campground, which is open April through October; 166-site Crane Flat Campground, which is open July through October; 74-site White Wolf Campground, which is open from July until early September; and Tuolumne Meadows Campground, which has 304 sites and is open from July until September.

Exploring the Area

In a park the size of Yosemite, there really is so much to do and see that you’ll struggle to fit everything in during your stay. If you’re short on time, the must-visit sites and must-do experiences you should try to get to will depend on the type of camping experience you have planned.

For example, if you want to get the perfect photo, head to the Tunnel View viewpoint on the eastern end of the Wawona Tunnel. If you want to get out on the water, try rafting down the Merced River in summer or fishing in Tenaya Lake. If you’d prefer something more remote and a little less crowded, head to Yosemite’s northwestern corner to enjoy the tranquility, waterfalls, and wildflowers of Hetch Hetchy Valley.

Of course, your motorhome camping adventure doesn’t have to stop once you leave Yosemite National Park. Whether you head north or south, you’ll soon find yourself amid a host of other world-class attractions.

Whether you want to check out Stanislaus National Forest to the north or head southeast and explore Inyo National Forest, Kings Canyon National Park or Sequoia National Park, you won’t have any trouble finding destinations worth visiting.

Rent a camper near Yosemite National Park and start planning your visit. Yosemite is a park that should be on everyone’s bucket list, so make sure you take the time to experience as much of it as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

Do RV rentals offer delivery?

Are there RV rentals near me?

RV rentals are available all over the country! Whether you want to pick up an RV near home to set out an epic road trip or if you want to have one ready at your destination, you can search by location for any type of rig.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership. It’s also a great way to try out the lifestyle and different types of rigs before you take the plunge and buy your own. Already own an RV? Consider renting yours out to bring in some extra income.
