Yosemite's tent cabins offer lower expenses of pitching a tent but without the bother. Because these facilities are more like a campground than a hotel, none of them offer maid service.

  • Housekeeping Camp, Curry Village: Located along the Merced River in Yosemite Valley, Housekeeping Camp has 266 units, each large enough to sleep six people. Each cabin has an outdoor grill and a firepit. These two-room cabins have a double bed, two single bunks, a table, chairs, mirror, electrical lights and outlets. Showers and restrooms are centrally located. Bring your own linens or rent them for a small fee per day.

  • Tuolumne Meadows Lodge: In Tuolumne Meadows at 8,775 feet, there 69 cabins here, each big enough for four, equipped with beds and linens. There is no electricty, but candles and a wood-burning stove are provided. Central showers and restrooms.

  • White Wolf Lodge: Off Tioga Road, this facility has 24 cabins. There is no electricty, but candles and a wood-burning stove are provided. Central showers and restrooms. Four deluxe cabins here have private baths, limited electricity and daily maid service.

  • High Sierra Camp: Choose from five hike-in camps spaced 5.7 to 10 miles apart. Meals are served family-style, and box lunches are available. Lodging is dormitory-style, and you need to bring your own bedding. These camps are so popular that they're offered by lottery, with applications accepted September through November for the upcoming year.
