Camping brings man closer to nature and nature closer to a boom box. Introduce Mother Nature to Sister Hazel with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $32 for two-night stay in a tent site (up to a $76 value)
- $42 for a two-night stay in a standard back-in RV site with water and electric hook-ups (up to a $96 value)
Up to six campers can spend the night in any tent and RV site, all of which come equipped with a picnic table and fire ring. Found within walking distance to bathroom and shower facilities, each tent site accommodates up to two tents, space permitting. Standard back-in RV sites include hook-ups for water and power, saving you from having to flood the camper ahead of time with electric eels.
Located just 22 miles from the western entrance to Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Pines serves as a convenient and dozy base camp for hiking, biking, and exploring the park. Tent and RV sites pepper the on-site campground, and individual cabins upgrade the rustic setting with full kitchens and microwaves for warming up fussy squirrels' acorns.
While camping in the Pines, guests can take a dip in the outdoor pool, play volleyball, or let kids loose to play the jungle gym or join other family-friendly activities. The petting farm, for instance, relocates the Yosemite wilderness to a safe, kid-friendly zoo—the critters even include alpacas—while the onsite “gold mine” teaches children how forty-niners used sluice boxes to pan for lost wristwatches.
As for Yosemite itself, spring and early summer is considered one of the best times to see the park's famed waterfalls, thanks to the snowmelt brought on by warmer weather. Yosemite Falls—a three-tiered waterfall believed to be the highest in North America—transforms into thundering cataracts each spring. To fully appreciate the view, serious hikers can trek to the top of the Upper Yosemite Falls trail—a strenuous path that gains 2,700 feet in elevation in just 3.5 miles.
