  1. Default RV Trip to Yosemite Park in two weeks

    Hello - we are planning for our first RV trip in two weeks, since this is the first time we are limiting our trip to 5 days and plan is to go from Las Vegas to Yosemite national park.
    Any suggestions on the drive, what to see, what to avoid, and suggested place to camp in Yosemite?

    Welcome to RTA!

    Here is RV camping information for Yosemite:

    https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/rvcamping.htm

    Tioga Pass may or may not be open when you make this trip. If it is, I'd recommend that you use that to enter the park. Head to Pahrump on NV-160, then take Bell Vista Avenue to Death Valley Junction, turn right then an immediate left into Death Valley. Explore the park, then exit on CA-136 to US-395 to Lee Vining, then CA-120 into Yosemite.

    If Tioga Pass is closed, you will have to go to Bakersfield, then north to Yosemite.

    Note that tire chains may be required to enter Yosemite.

    Default Camping in the valley.

    Hello and welcome to RTA !

    The Upper Pines campground is well located in the heart of Yosemite valley. You will need to plan to stop overnight on the way out and on the way back which should be planned accordong to what time you plan to pick up and drop off, with drop off normally early morning you would have to be close by on your last night. Where to stay heading out will depend on wether or not Tioga Pass is open as mentioned above. There is much to see and do in the valley but if Glacier point road is still open, I would certainly recommend a drive up to Glacier point and a short walk to the viewpoint, it is an unbelievable view !
