Bumping this thread back up, as I am trying to plan a trip to the park in June. I know -- heck of a time to be planning such a trip. I would be very happy with a tent and a small place to get horizontal. Since the Valley itself will be nearly impossible to get into a first-come/first-serve campground (reservations of course are gone) I'm looking for alternatives. The more I read, the more confused I get.
If staying at White Wolf, Yosemite Creek, or Porcupine Flat, is reaching the Valley an issue?
My main goal is wildlife viewing. Bears and wolfs, with some Eagles thrown in. Of course, the waterfalls, and other 'must see' sights.
Suggestions are highly appreciated. I like the look of the Condos mentioned earlier. Have an email in about availability. Or better to camp outside the park and then take shuttles in/out?
Mind is spinning...
