I just spent 6 nights in Yosemite. I stayed at White wolf campground. If you really want to see a bear stay there.
The bears usually come around 6-7 in morning. They walk around the campsite.
They are beige colored bears.
Also I went to Lukens lake near the campground and saw a beige bear in the woods on the trail leading to this lake.
Yes it is safe to use a tent. I would just have nothing with a scent in my tent or my car.
I even put my dirty clothes in the bear box. I wore certain clothes at night for sleep that were clean, thus no sweat or sunscreen smell on them.
