In 1899, David and Jenny Curry opened a tented camp so that visitors could enjoy the beauty of Yosemite for a modest price. Today, Curry Village is an unincorporated community in Mariposa County, California. It is located in the Yosemite Valley of Yosemite National Park 1 mile (1.6 km) southeast of Yosemite Village, at an elevation of 4,003 feet (1,220 m). Curry Village occupies a central position in the Yosemite Valley, and is built on a talus cone of debris from old rockfalls. Camp Curry offers lodging in the shadow of Glacier Point and Half Dome. The complex includes visitor cabins, a store, dining facilities, a lodge and a post office. The camp's structures are rustic wood framed cabins, set on stone foundations with hipped roofs. The camp includes a large number of tent cabins, framed bases with tented roofs, a lower-cost lodging alternative developed in the early 20th century. Significant structures include the 1914 entrance sign, the 1904 Old Registration Office, the 1913 dance hall, now guest lodgings as the Stoneman House, the 1916 Foster Curry cabin and the 1917 Mother Curry's bungalow. Bungalows with en-suite baths were built from 1918 to 1922 and bungalows without plumbing in the 1930s.
I camped here before hiking Half Dome. The tents are pretty nice and the grounds are clean. It's a great location to access a bunch of very nice Yosemite hikes. The only problem is it's very hard to get a site, they get reserved as soon as they come up.
