This is one of the campgrounds available in the Yosemite Valley area and this is the best way to experience this part of the park. It is located at the foot of Glacier Point and as the name implies there are lots of pine trees in the campground. None of the Yosemite Valley campgrounds have hookups so it's dry camping although potable water and a dump station are available. The site pad is asphalt and includes a fire pit and picnic table. Be aware that you will need to make your reservation 5 months in advance at the very moment when they open reservations once per month. There are flush restrooms on-site and showers are available nearby in Half Dome Village. The bathrooms are adequate but could use a little more attention. We were able to get a weak Verizon 4G signal here. We paid $26 per night.
