The management at Curry Village in Yosemite is working hard to accommodate the vacation needs of guests. The tent cabins, wood cabins and rooms comprise about 400 units. Each is like a motel room that has to be kept in tip-top condition. Many units were added recently to fill in the gap caused by the rockfall of 2008. Several new ones – brand new – replaced the 91 “hantavirus” signature cabins.
I suggest earplugs. I never hear cars coming in or the next door clan arguing. There is a 10 pm quiet time and a staff person walks around to enforce it. Blankets and linen are provided as well as towels….those white kind with the blue stripe. I guess that keep people from stealing them. I bring a sleeping bag so I don’t have to make up my bed. Staff come in everyday to empty your trash and provide fresh towels.
I find the front desk staff to be well trained and efficient. They seem to have “customer service” in their veins. I’ve never seen anyone go away mad there. Kudos to “Mother Curry,” the volunteer who dresses in period costume and welcomes visitors to the registration area.
Stop by and say hi to Dan Cornforth, the able Curry Village Manager. His admin, Renee Santiago, steers the ship when he’s out.
