We DO want to see the falls of course...
We just have 7 days from start to finish--We are thinking the second evening we would be in Yosemite and then of course 2 days to drive home--so just three days there...
I would try to stay in the valley floor - And book now for September as Yosemite is just a bear to get into.. There's other area that has campsites is Wawona, but they are about 35 min (by car) to the valley floor.. When you go definitely make it up to Glacier Point as the vista are just to die for..Also do the hike Vernal Falls ( a good day hike).. The Awahnee lodge is amazing and a great place for lunch (outside) dinner is pretty pricey..
We stayed in "upper pines" (no hook-ups)..
Yosemite is a magical place and you'll never regret making the journey... we usually go twice a year.. in May and sometime in the winter..
