The vibe at Camp 4
Drop some Camp 4 knowledge on us.
Visited in November to a pleasantly half-empty campground, full of climbers and fellow New Zealanders. I'd suggest coming a little earlier as the Tioga Road gets closed around this time. Good temperatures for walking. A bear wandered past my tent one night, which was exciting. Go easy on bringing food with you as you have to lug it to your campsite bear locker, and there's a well-stocked shop in the valley.
Quiet hours: 2200 - 0600
Until 0530 July 3rd the line wasn't bad - ranger showed up super early at 0738 to hand out numbers even though sign said 0830 for ranger. Everyone must be there when the ranger hands out numbers, no exceptions on busy mornings.
Get there Very early if you want to ensure getting a place, its a great experience you share each spot with 3 other campers and make new friends, base of the Yosemite Falls hike starts near the entrance of the camp. I can't wait to get back!
People were sleeping in line the night before. I arrived at 4am and was 28th in line. Everyone else had been there since at lease midnight, some as early as 8pm. I honestly wish I had just come up the night before and slept in line. There were plenty of spots if you arrived by 6am, but this was a Tuesday morning.
The camp was full and they pack you in 6 to a site no matter how many people are in your party, You share a fire pit, but get assigned your own bear box(es). The camp is in a great location, not too close to the village, so it feels a little remote, but you can easily get to anywhere in the valley either by walking or using the shuttle system.
Would definitely stay here again.
Camp 4 is a mecca for climbers in the US, and it is the perfect place to stay for long days of climbing in the Valley. You're in the perfect location to walk/bike anywhere in the valley, and fantastic climbing (including one of the most famous boulders in the world) is within a stones throw from this site!
