Yosemite National park is high on the must-visit list for most RVers in the springtime. Yosemite National Park is one of the most amazing places on earth, and not just because of the hiking, rock climbing and meadows filled with wildflowers. Yosemite is an epic experience because it has been heavily preserved to maintain its untouched beauty. This is why the campgrounds in Yosemite are dry camping only, with no utility hookups. There are also limited sites available for larger RVs. While four of the campgrounds in the park offer sites for RVs up to 40, there are only a small number of sites in each campground that fit this size rig.
Whilst hunting is not permitted inside the National Park, Yosemite has been known to attract many hunters to the local area to manage the populations of wildlife, such as deer for example. Outside of the Yosemite National Park, hunters can work in close contact with the government to ensure that these animals stay controlled. As deers can cause many car accidents, it’s important to manage the number of them in and around the National Park. For any hunters wanting to hunt recreationally, it might be a good idea to try and purchase the best .22 air rifle they can find. That should help them to improve their shot. Hunters have been known to camp on-site at the National Park in their own RVs, allowing them easy access to the outskirts of the Park.
For this reason, most RVers choose to stay at a campground just outside the National Park boundaries. There are many full hookup parks that are super busy in the summer. In the spring, however, you will have a much wider choice.
Spring in Yosemite is famous for its overflowing waterfalls, fresh with melting snow from the nearby creeks. As the water cascades down the mountains the spring flowers begin to burst forth and greet these you are lucky enough to witness it in person.
As with any of the national parks it is important to plan your trip in advance and make reservations with the RV park you plan to stay at. Just because it’s spring doesn’t guarantee they’ll have sites available. Be sure and call before you leave!
