I was hoping for more, but what I got was a tent cabin with two single beds, mattresses were very uncomfortable, thin pillows and one blanket. No lock on the door that was "safe" and the bathrooms were quite dirty. The spots were small, people on top of each other. I tried to go to bed early since I'd been... More

There are very few accommodations of any kind near Yosemite National Park and this is the closest RV park by far. Yes, the sites are close together. Yes, the place is fully packed most of the time. That's what you should expect and that's what you get. And more! The place is chock full of Euros traveling in rented RVs.... More

We stayed in the rock cabin this past week and I have to say it was one of the worst experiences of my life! Lets start with the positives: Convenient location to the absolutely stunning Yosemite NP. Drive about 15 mins and you will hit the west gate. The grounds look good and would be great if you had all... More

I really enjoyed staying out side the Yosemite park. Gordon is the person that runs the front desk and he is the main reason I would stay here again, he is so friendly and really keeps an eye on the place. I did not use the bathrooms so I cannot comment on that but the grounds were clean and it... More

We camped here after being unable to get a campsite in Yosemite. This RV park is very close to the park (~30 min from the Valley floor). The tent sites are very small and crammed together but we had nice neighbors so i didn't mind. It was a bonus to have flush toilets and hot showers after our days climbing... More

The best part was getting to use the pool and hot tub next door to the park. The bar and food next door was good as well. This is very close to the park entrance. The sites are decent sized but good enough to fit a 40ft RV. I would recommend based on the pool and closeness

We reserved this place after not being successful getting a spot at Camp 4 in the park. For the price and location this place it we'll worth it. We spent 2 nights with our tent and enjoyed our stay. Being able to use the facilities next door is a great addition - indoor and outdoor pool, shop and bar /... More

Should have read the other reviews more carefully. This place is a joke. Unless you are part of an international youth group driving across the US and you want a cheap place to stay and have a campfire and flask or two with your friends. But as for the rest of us, there are more street lamps here than there... More

We had a pretty good few days here. A lot of trek groups passed through but for the most part they were quiet enough and we didn't notice them. The facilities are pretty good, some of the showers are open top which is an interesting experience looking up at the trees! It's great that campers can use the pools and... More

After some disappointing attempts to find a place to stay in the surroundings of Yosemite NP, we came finally home at Indian Flat. Not a fancy place but with nice infrastructure (a shower without roof under beautiful trees and the starry sky) and kind people. Our special thanks to Gordon who helped us get settled at one of the last... More
