Curry Village is located in the heart of Yosemite Valley in California. Home to the world-famous Curry Village Tents and Cabins this is an amazing place to stay within the park.
Curry Village - Yosemite National Park
Curry Village has been welcoming guests for over 120 years. David and Jennie Curry founded the village in 1899.
During the summer of 2020, there will be a lot of maintenance and work being done to the dining options within the village. The Pavilion, Pizza Patio, Bar, and Coffee Corner are closed through the renovation.
Curry Village also known as Camp Curry and previously known as Half Dome Village sits below Glacier Point in Yosemite Valley.
Yosemite lodging options in Curry Village include:
- 46 Yosemite cabins with private baths
- 14 Cabins that share a convenient bathhouse
- 403 Canvas tent cabins
- 18 Standard motel rooms
One of my favorite things about this area is the epic views of Half Dome and Glacier Point.
In the winter you can walk to the ice skating rink easily. Yosemite winters are absolutely amazing! Ice skating with a view of half dome is a total National Park bucket list moment.
Curry Village Tent Cabins
When staying in the tent cabins you will want to prepare as if you are camping in any of the Yosemite campgrounds.
Some of the tents have heat and others do not so you will want to make sure when you make a reservation you know what you are getting.
Tent campers share bathrooms located in central areas of the tents.
If you are a light sleeper you will want to bring earplugs. The canvas tents do not provide much noise cancellation.
The tent cabins do have a small storage rack with a locking safe so you can store some valuables in the tent.
The Camp Curry Tent Cabins do have a light but do not have any electrical plugins. You will want to make sure you have a way to keep your phone charged along with camera batteries.
Sheets, wool blankets, pillows, and towels are provided.
Unheated tent cabins can accommodate two to five guests.
Heated canvas tent cabins can accommodate two to four guests. The heated canvas tents are only available during the winter. The heat is turned off the Friday before Memorial Day and turned on the Tuesday after Labor Day.
Tent cabins come with one locker measuring:
- 35.5"W x 20.5"D x 23" H (Small Tent Cabins)
- 47.5"W x 20.5"D x 23" H (Large Tent Cabins)
Guests need to store all food and anything with a scent in the food lockers. Make sure to bring resealable containers to easily transport your food and toiletries to the food lockers. Even deodorant and toothpaste needs to be kept in the food lockers.
For safety, there is no cooking within the tent cabins.

Curry Village Map
Curry Village offers amazing access to Yosemite Valley via the free shuttle buses.
The heated outdoor pool is open every day from the end of May through the beginning of September, weather permitting.
Curry Village guests can use the pool free, and other Yosemite guests pay $5/adult and $4/child.
Biking around Yosemite Valley is an amazing way to see the park. You can rent bikes for the day in the village.
Bike Rentals are available from spring through fall.
Most years you can rent rafts to leisurely float down the Merced River. Unfortunately, there will be no raft rentals in 2020 for health safety.
Yosemite Mountaineering School
The Yosemite Mountaineering School will be closed for 2020.
Guests staying at Curry Village have access to a lounge that has free WiFi. I will tell you the WiFi is not the strongest you have ever used. LOL!
The WiFi should be enough to check emails and hopefully social media.
