Camp 4 in Yosemite Valley is most popular with rock climbers, who like to gather there, share stories about their climbs, and practice on nearby boulders. Many campers appreciate the slightly more carefree atmosphere than at other Yosemite campgrounds. The campground is only a short walk from Yosemite Valley Lodge.
The walk-in campground is for tents only and operates much like a hostel. Campers register for Camp 4 as individuals and are assigned to a campsite by the ranger on duty. People in one group might find themselves assigned to different campsites.
