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.

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.

- 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.
