2017 Summer Camping Season
June 9th - Aug 6th
Family Camp at Yosemite provides an all-inclusive camping experience where guests of all ages can fish, hike, swim, participate in organized programs, or just sit back, relax and take it easy. Family Camp is open to anyone who is interested in camping, not just residents of San José. It's a great experience the whole family will enjoy, so join us this summer and reserve your tent today!
San José’s Family Camp is located in the heart of the Sierras near Yosemite National Park, just east of Groveland, California, at 11401 Cherry Lake Road. Family Camp is situated on 47 acres of land leased from the U.S. Forest Service. The Stanislaus National Forest and the middle fork of the Tuolumne River serve as the scenic backdrop to this mountain playground.
During the summer season, the camp provides three meals a day to campers, along with supervised recreational activities. There are 65 wood-framed tents scattered among the pines and oaks throughout camp. Each tent cabin can sleep up to six people and has a deck, small table, a bench and cots with mattresses. There are a limited number of wheelchair accessible tents that can be reserved and a number of tents with electricity, for an additional fee. Groups are welcome to rent out the camp during the pre- and post-seasons.
Forget something? The Camp store offers a variety of sundries, fishing supplies, souvenirs and snacks. Fishing is a popular activity and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife regularly stocks trout in the river flowing through camp, but be sure to purchase your license before arrival. Anyone over the age of 16 is required to carry their license while fishing.
