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. Which 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.
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!
