I was thinking of renting a camper van and wondered if it's safe to sleep in the van. Are there designated areas where one can park and stay overnight in a van?

Unfortunately, this is not permitted:

Within Yosemite National Park, you may not sleep in your car or RV except in a campsite that you're registered to stay in (except at Camp 4, where sleeping in cars is not allowed because it's a walk-in campground). Sleeping in your car along the side of the road is also not allowed.

You'd need to sleep at a campsite or outside the park. See the guide to Visiting Yosemite With an RV, including this map showing free and paid locations around the park with RV parking.

    So actually, it is permitted. You just, y’know, need a permit. (And to be in one of the designated campsites. Which is typical.) – LessPop_MoreFizz Jan 14 '18 at 15:18
