          Upper Pines is close to most points of interest. Yosemite is a gorgeous, but very crowded park, even in May. The shuttle bus system helps, but drivers are 'stressed' and one was incredibly rude to passengers. Park system needs to add more buses and drivers...More

          Hi, I was wondering if there is anything available for travelers that are flying to Yosemite? We are coming from NY and would prefer to camp in the park but we are not sure if there are pre-existing tents to rent or yurts available, or if we will need to bring our own? Thanks!
