Stayed here as all other camp grounds were booked up. I think though they are all similar... no showers etc. It was perfectly handy for Yosemite Valley but if there was somewhere with showers etc (which there wasn't) then i would have stayed there instead. Was a pain with people trying to park in our already booked RV pitch but... More

Spent our first two nights in Yosemite at Hodgdon Meadow, and the campground was just what we needed: ideally located for a late night entry from the West (immediately after the park gates) but still workable for exploring other areas of the park. We traveled in a small RV, and our site (#74) had an unavoidable slant no matter how... More

Great place. Definitely one of our favorite campgrounds. This visit was really marred by the family next door in a trailer who insisted on running their generator as much as possible. The campground host was not there during our visit and we only saw a ranger on our last day so didn't bother complaining. It won't stop us returning to... More

This is a fairly crowded campground and the facilities are decent but a little worn. Because Yosemite takes in so many people every year, you have to consider this in selecting campgrounds, sites and use of facilities. We were in site #63 and it is very roomy and on the outer edge of the campground. It's less than 100 yards... More

There is lots of logging around the campground and a short walk gives all the firewood you might want to use. Bring a small hand saw and an axe or hatchet to split the wood. Had site 86 with an RV fairly near the entrance. Generator hours are 7-9 am, 12-2 pm and 5-7 pm. I typically run a Honda... More

We camped here 3 nights. We were lucky enough to get site 002, which is set back from the rest of the grounds. Had a good amount of privacy and lots of wood to harvest for our fires. Loved the quiet and remoteness compared to the valley. The key to this campground is getting a great site.

Not a pleasant experience. Very regular campers, but the pitch we were allocated was too small for the group. It was on a slope with a dumpster nearby. Ok so we are in Yosemite....just, but the facilities were dirty, and limited. As we moved around Yosemite we became aware that this is not unique for the park. The scenery is... More

This campground was great. We stayed there 3 days, it was very clean (the most clean in yosemite.) The location is great if you want to see more of yosemite than just the valley (you should...) it's a 45 minutes drive to the valley, 45 minutes to hetch hetchy and 1hour to tolumn meadow. The campground is quiet and the... More

Was surprised at the layout of this campground, it is one of the worst I have seen. The campground is built on a hill so most of the sites are on moderate to steep grades. Many of the pull-in sites are very steep and very close together. Even the very pleasant host I met admitted it was hard telling what... More

A 32" RV backed in to #36 means you're sloping like boat in a storm. But we didn't care a jot. We loved it. 3 days here was outdoor paradise. With the valley less than an hour away this place is an ideal overflow if you can't get in to the cramped valley camp-grounds. The water is cold, the toilets... More
