The Housekeeping Camp

The Housekeeping Camp was one of the places I worked during my summers in Yosemite. The camp consists of tents with wood stoves and cooking utensils while Camp Curry up the road provided tent "cabins" alone. The Housekeeping Camp could accommodate as many people as Curry or Yosemite Lodge. I started there as a room clerk, then chief clerk, and finally as manager for three summers. If you got a tent along the Merced River, you had a nice view of Half Dome and/or Yosemite Falls.

Is the Housekeeping camp there any more?

Yes, I was there a couple of years ago.

The Housekeeping Camp is a summer operation only. The canvas on the tents is taken off at the end of the season.
