One of Yosemite National Park’s five historic High Sierra Camps, Vogelsang Hikers Camp was originally built in 1924 alongside Booth Lake. This location proved unsuccessful due to the poor drainage, difficulties with the water supply, and an over abundance of mosquitoes. The camp relocated to a site near Tuolumne Pass in the early 1930s. Finally, in 1940 the camp moved to its present location at the base of Fletcher Peak.
Located creek-side near Fletcher Lake, Vogelsang is often named as a favorite spot in Yosemite by many a veteran visitor. This is truly an alpine setting at the highest elevation of all the camps with peaks, lakes, meadows and vistas within close proximity. Vogelsang is at the base of Fletcher Peak and famous for intense sunset alpenglow. Many alpine lakes in the area offer great opportunities for hiking and fishing. Day trip destinations include Evelyn and Ireland Lakes, Booth Lake, Emeric Lake, and Vogelsang Lake, Pass and Peak.
All High Sierra Camp lodging is in canvas tent cabins with dormitory-style steel frame beds with mattresses, pillows, woolen blankets or comforters. To maximize the number of people able to enjoy the High Camps, we do our best to fill all the beds. The staff makes every effort to keep members of a party in the same tent(s), but sometimes splitting a party is necessary.
A satisfying dinner and breakfast are served family-style in a main dining tent while you meet and compare notes with other High Sierra Camp lodging guests. Every effort is made to accommodate advance requests due to dietary restrictions such as food allergies, vegetarian or vegan diets. Sack lunches, which must be ordered the night before they're needed, may also be purchased at each camp.
