Our preferred method of lodging for our Yosemite trip was obviously tent camping. I did some research and quickly found out that this can be a little tricky - mainly you need to book your site 4 months in advance. So - that's what I did. The day to book for our trip that was occurring at the end of MAY was January 15th. I remember waking up and getting everything ready so I could simply hit the check out button right when they went on sale at 8 am. After site 72 was secured I went back to see if the rumors that these sites go within the first 10 minutes was true. IT IS (except for a random Tuesday here and there). Felt like we won the lottery with this one.
Obviously, camping at a campground inside quite possibly the most popular National Park in the country is going to bring a lot of people. This means I had to do my research. I spent hours and hours looking at the different campgrounds and scouring the internet for any information on what might be the most secluded sites. Our site ended up being perfect, right next to the river, and luckily right next to some RV's where they stayed inside most of the time. WHY you would do that, I will never know.
