Yakima to Yosemite

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a tent camping trip for my family of 4 (2 kids: 14 & 4). We want to enjoy camping, scenic drive, and more camping, with lots of fun, interactive family activities at the campground.

There is plenty online to suggest Yosemite is a good family camping opportunity.

questions:
1. 14 hour drive seems too long a day down. Where is a good place to stop for the night with a good family eatery and HI Express? I'd like to get to Sacramento, because the 4 year old loves the IKEA there for dinner.

2. We'd like to find the best tent campground in Yosemite that we can get a reservation for, but it may be too late for this August already. Advice on best one to be near short hikes and the family activities in the Valley? Just us and our black lab. We might rent bikes.

3. What do you recommend to do there with kids and as a general bucket list?

Finally, is August a good month to go do Yosemite? I heard the falls dry up by the end of summer, and I want to see the falls running strong. Would that need to be July next year then?

Thanks for any advice from experts on this destination!
