We visited Yosemite for a couple of days with a campervan and stayed at the Yosemite Campground for one night. This place is really unique, because it's far away from everything. You leave the highway an drive on a narrow and very rough road for about 30-45 minutes, before arriving at the campground. It's not advised (or not possible) to... More

If you're willing to take the drive, this is a great campsite. It is first come first serve so it is more likely to have an open campsite than many of the others in Tuolumne Meadows because it's so hard to get to. The campground is on a creek and even in late August there was some water to get... More

It's quiet but a bit difficult to get to based on the road conditions. I've been there a number of times. First come, first serve. About $12 each night to camp per site, but you can have multiple tents and vehicles per site.

We went there because of good reviews. Not too impressed. Ride down is paved for a bit but then several miles of very rutted narrow road. For that type of drive I would like to know it was worth it. Campground is nice. Facilities are good but not a lot to see besides the creek. Your in Yosemite and would... More

The road to get back to the camp grounds is over 4 miles long. It's extremely narrow so hopefully you're in a small vehicle if you'd happen to meet someone else coming or going. The road, if you can call it that is paved for a short distance. Very short distance. The rest is huge holes in dirt , so... More

The campground itself is really nice even though you don't have access to electricity or water but hey, that's camping ! About the road to the campground, it IS bumpy but you can handle it, we...

My family and I pulled a small teardrop camper into this campground. Signs didn't recommend campers. The road in and out was narrow and bummmmmpy. Would not recommend anything larger then a popup or teardrop. There was a Ranger parked at the entrance but didn't care as we pulled the camper past. I think the old truck with Kentucky tags...

POSITIVES 1) The actual campsites are rather nice. Secluded, quiet; overall a nice place to stay if you want real camping. No big RVs with generators and massive lights destroying the peacefulness of the Yosemite night. 2) Usually one of the very last campgrounds to fill up, so if you don't have a reservation in a Yosemite campgrounds and you...

The campground was beautiful & clean. We camped right next to the creek for 5 days. My only drawback was the 4 mile weathered road to get to the campsite. I drive a small SUV and had a heck of a time dodging all the potholes. Hope the park can do better maintenance on the road after winter, but it... More

Beautiful campground, and yes, a very bumpy 20 minute drive to get 4 miles into the actual campground off the main road. Secluded, peaceful, beautiful. Now on to the negatives. Had some serious issues with the park staff. Stepped about 50-60 yards away from the campsite down to the nearby creek in the middle of the afternoon for about 20... More
