Camp Curry in Yosemite National Park is located in Yosemite Valley.  The campground has cabins and tent cabins only.  There are no RV or tent camp spots at this location.  The closest campground to Camp Curry is Lower Pines Campground.  Curry Village is also located at Camp Curry.  Curry Village has a restaurant, market, bar, and Pizza shop.  There is also a pool, showers, and laundry available.  The campground has 450 rustic tent cabins available and 50 cabins.

Note: There is no fuel in Yosemite Valley so fill-up before you enter this area. 
 
There is a free shuttle(The Valley Shuttle) that circles Yosemite Valley with 21 stops.  The shuttle stops at all campgrounds, trail heads, lodges, and markets.  Its a wonderful service and is very interesting.  During the summer months the bus arrives at the stop in front of the campground every 15 minutes.  The shuttle does not run outside the valley.
 
In Yosemite Valley there are two markets, one at Curry Village and the other at Yosemite Village.  The Yosemite Village Market is the larger of the two markets.  The Curry Village market is at Camp Curry.
 
Most cell carriers have service from Camp Curry.  Texting also usually works from Camp Curry however, there is no cellular data service.  The strongest cell service can be found at Yosemite Village.
 
There is a variety of lodging in Yosemite National Park including The Ahwahnee, Yosemite Lodge, Housekeeping, Tuolumne Meadows Lodge, White Wolf Lodge, Wawona, and Camp Curry.  Camp Curry has canvas tent cabins.  Housekeeping is similar to Camp Curry. 
 
WiFi is available for purchase at Yosemite Lodge and The Ahwahnee Lodge.  It's also available for free at Curry Village however, there are so many users the network seldom works.
 
Don't forget to bring or rent bikes in Yosemite Valley.  Just park the car and use the bikes.  You are helping the environment and its a ton of fun to bike ride.  The bike paths are excellent and paved.  Bike rental is $32 per day(as of 2014) so, bring one if you can.  Also, in Yosemite Valley, bring or rent float toys.  The stream that runs through the valley in summer is usually warm enough and calm enough for a fun float.  Get out of the stream at the right spot and the bus stop is just 100 yards away.  Deflate your float and jump on the free bus ride back to where you started.  Note, it may be unsafe to go in the water at different times of the year or at different river entry points.  Check with the rangers before you enter the water.
 
Caution: Wherever you stay in Yosemite, watch out for the bears.  They can be found in every campground, every night.  Bears are very stealthy and can be just feet away without you knowing it.  Don't leave food out and don't leave food or gum in your car.  The gum smell attracts them and they will open your car like a can opener.
 
Roads:
Yosemite National Park is open all year however, some roads and campgrounds do close.  There are four entrances into the park.  Each entrance has a unique name.  They are, the South Entrance(on Wawona road and Highway 41), Arch Rock Entrance(highway 140 from the West), Big Oak Flat Entrance( From the West on highway 120), and the Tioga Pass Entrance (From the East on Highway 120).  Most roads in Yosemite are challenging for larger RV's.  The lanes are small, winding, and there are overhangs in spots.  The Tioga Pass entrance is the most difficult with a steep assent into the park followed by rough roads.  For RV's there are numerous pull-outs to allow traffic to pass.
