Yosemite Campsite Share

Getting a campsite in Yosemite during the spring and summer is difficult. You must reserve your site 4 - 5 months in advance and you have to do it right at 7:00am on the dot. At 7:01 sites are gone. Yosemite Campsite Share is about helping more people camp in Yosemite. How? We are allowed up to 6 people per site and if you behave, you can get away with 8. Often people who reserve a site only have 2-4 people with them. So lets put all that extra space to good use. It's time to create a place for people who love all Yosemite activities to post their sites and invite others to join them.

We think you'll meet lots of great people. It's a bit of an adventure in itself. Likely you'll share some stories, some food, even some beer and wine. We've met many friends this way and the community keeps growing. You teach us about your fancy outdoor cooking skills and we might show you an awesome "off the beaten path" hike or a secret destination.

   Please read about our "Thank you system" for people who open up their campsites to us. We think its going to make for a fun community: http://www.meetup.com/YosemiteCampShare/about/
