YosemiteFilter: No Reservations.

My partner and I are FINALLY planning on visiting Yosemite in June. We would be driving in from the Bay Area, and didn't make any campsite reservations. The NPS says there are very few openings
at the first-come-first-served site(s) in June. Where should we stay at Yosemite to get the best experience? Sparkly nature's majesty-flakes and more questions inside.

We'll be with a small group of friends (no kids) who are all pretty experienced campers and hikers.
- Given our lack of official campsite reservation, what is the best "base camp" we could find to get the most out of Yosemite? Preferably one cabin/campsite where we can return to each night while going on marvelous hikes each day?
- Or should we get up at the crack of dawn to *try* to finagle a space in that first-come-first-serve campsite?
- Curry Village has openings. I've read meh reviews of it. Will it put a damper on our enjoyment of the park because of noise/general proximity to large groups of people?
Other details: We want moderate hiking, no Half Dome this time, just great views and waterfalls.
