Thanks for posting this piece of Yosemite history. I've already downloaded it and placed it in my iPhoto album.

I love that, in the photo just inside the cover, one of the guys sitting in the carriage is holding what appears to be this same pamphlet!

Full size scans can be saved from my Flickr page at http://www.flickr.com/photos/chiefranger/sets/72157640317331676/ I just obtained this great piece of Yosemite history and want to make sure that it does not disappear. So I am making it available to the public. The more it is shared. The better the chances that it will be around for future Yosemite fans to enjoy.

The last page has "Hotel and Camp Rates".

This mentions:
)Sentinel Hotel
)Camp Lost Arrow
)Glacier Point Camp
)Camp Ahwahnee

Could I get more info about these, such as their location?

If I remember correctly Sentinel Hotel was near the current Sentinel Bridge in the area that is referred to as the "Old Village". If you look carefully you can still see a section of an old sidewalk between the sugar maple tree and Sentinel Bridge.

There's a sign there also which has a map of the old village. I can post it here if desired later.

EDIT:

Take a look here... some nice maps:

Thanks for the maps. I just saw them today because your post was lost in all the other posts.

If you look at page 15 of the brochure, it gives at least approximate locations of the 3 camps are (Ahwanee at base of Sentinel Rock, Lost Arrow at base of Yose Falls and GP was "near" the GP Hotel (which was at the top of the little hill you climb when coming up from the parking area)). I don't have time to check now but there's at least a chance that you might find the locations marked more specifically on some period maps.
