We re-supplied here on the JMT at the nearby Post Office/General Store. Nice campsite up on the hill overlooking the rest of the campground. One bathroom was open thank goodness. It was pretty busy and quite a few through hikers here to stay the night. Nice bear boxes to keep our food and ourselves safe from the bears.

Absolutely fabulous campground. The views can not be beat. It was quiet and so clean. Rangers were awesome and super friendly! We loved staying away from the crowds of the valley. It is a drive to see some Main attractions but there is a lot to see in the meadows. It rained for 2 days including lightning so prepare for that possibility. If you are lucky enough to get a reservation get there early to get a good spot. We had a huge site right by the river. We have a very large 8 person and a smaller tent and it fit perfectly. The bathrooms were kept very clean. Make sure to bring a bucket to wash your dishes in.

A friend and I did a late season hike here for 2 nights in late September and found everything to be as we expected. The restrooms could have used a light but with our camping gear that was not a problem. One thing we loved especially was the entire campground was very quiet and all campers very respectful about what another. No need to get in your car if you want to go for a few miles of hiking as there are many great sites easily reached without using your car directly from the campground including the to wollami meadows visitor center just a mile up the trail. There is also the twala me meadows store, Post Office, and grill with ice cream nearby. Enjoy!

We love the Tuolumne Meadows area and have visited many times on trips where we've stayed in Yosemite Valley or Mammoth. We had a family camping trip to Tahoe planned and decided to take the long way home over Tioga Pass and stay 2 nights at Tuolumne Meadows. We booked our site online on the first day that reservations were open. On our reservation we indicated that we had two tents (one large, one small). Upon arrival, our site (C64) was already assigned and the campground full. Our entire site was a sloped hill and full of large rocks. Not a single place to pitch 1 tent, much less 2. Ranger said we could not switch. We opted to drive 4 more hours home (after already driving 4 hours to get there from Tahoe). Will never try to camp here again. This site would only have been suitable for one person sleeping in their car, not a family.

If I did not get the senior rate, I would have a hard time paying the fees for a campground with no showers. Let me just start there. However, the location is fantastic. There are so many great sites and hikes and fishing available up in Tuolomne that so many people miss by never leaving the crowded valley floor. Early September is a great time to go, usually. No mosquitoes, no snow yet. We had beautiful weather, if cold at night. It was in the low 40s to high 30s at night when we were there. Very warm and sunny in the day, but as soon as the sun went down, brrr. By mid-september the night temps ran in the 20s, according to friends who were still there. For showers you can drive down to Lee Vining and pay $3.50 for 5 minutes of hot water shower in the RV park. 5 minutes is plenty, but if you think you need more, they will refund you what you don't use as long as it isn't past their closing hours. It's a long drive from the campground to the valley. So, I would not recommend it if you want to spend a lot of time in the valley. We went for one day, because my brother had never been there. No bears while we were there. There are bear lockers and you are required to put all food and perfumy items in the bin. Keeping up this good habit keeps the bears away. There is a small camp supplies store, but I suggest you be sure to bring everything you need with you. Some sites are better than others. Once you become familiar with the park, you will know which sites to reserve. There are also first come, first serve sites. You need to be in line very early for that! The hike up to Elizabeth Lake in the fall is very colorful!
