Located in the Yosemite Valley, Housekeeping Camp is a cheaper lodging option (After tax around $100.90 a night for up to 4 people) for visitors to Yosemite National Park. The lodging is somewhere between camping and staying in a hotel where there are 3 concrete walls enclosing beds covered by canvas rooftops and one curtain wall. Outside there is a table and lounge area all covered by the rooftop.[1] There are 266 total units that can sleep up to 6 people. Each unit is equipped with electricity. Housekeeping Camp contains its own beach along the Merced River, laundry facility, shower facility, very nice bathrooms, and a grocery store. Much like Curry Village, guests get a great view of Half Dome and Yosemite Falls. The environment is also shaded by the many trees in the area and cars are allowed to be parked next to the campsite. Some negatives include: crowded, close proximity to neighbors, and noise. Campfires are only permitted from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. during the months of May to October.

Housekeeping Camp is one of the most popular places to stay in the valley. Reservations typically fill up on the first day they become available.

Housekeeping Camp is located at 37°44.485′N 119°34.805′W / 37.741417°N 119.580083°W / 37.741417; -119.580083Coordinates: 37°44.485′N 119°34.805′W / 37.741417°N 119.580083°W / 37.741417; -119.580083.
