Glamping Near Yosemite National Park - Updated 2020

Glamping Near Yosemite National Park

Redwood trees. Waterfalls. Canyons. It’s impossible to see everything that Yosemite National Park has to offer, given its sheer size and number of attractions. While there are people who are as happy as clams setting up tents or crawling in their sleeping bags surrounded by the great outdoors, there are also adventure-seekers who want to explore the gorgeous sights in the park but want someplace comfortable to spend the night. If you belong to the latter group, check out this list of options if you’re planning to go glamping near Yosemite National Park.

1. Brand-new microcabin (from USD 72)

This property may be just 120 sq. ft. (36.2 sq. m.), but it does come with creature comforts that will make guests more comfortable than if they choose to spend the night in tents. What’s more, they also gain access to a swimming pool and a golf course. The micro-cabin is furnished with a queen-sized memory foam bed, a ceiling fan, and even a small fridge. Electrical outlets are installed here, so you are free to charge any gadgets you may have brought with you. A towel, a washcloth, slippers, and some toiletries are provided for guests’ use. The shared bathroom is just a few steps away from the micro-cabin. This rental can accommodate up to two people.
