The May Lake High Sierra Camp is one of a series of six within Yosemite National Park. They’re a great way to get a wilderness experience without having to pack in food and tents. The camps provide sleeping in canvas tents, and food in a tent dining hall. We’ve gone through the May Lake camp many times in our 30 years of wilderness experiences.
Brian Shoor, who has managed the camp every summer for 14 years, gave me this interview in the summer of 2015. You can find information about the chain of camps, and application information, online.
