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

We booked this site as we were travelling from SF to Yosemite and no sites were available in the park. It turned out to be an excellent choice location wise as it is very close to the El Portal entrance to Yosemite. However, do not expect warm friendly customer service or showers ( as they did not work). But we... More

I have stayed at this facility several times, but in a RV space and had wonderful service. Keith has always done a great job in getting my reservations placed well ahead of my vacation. This year we stayed in the "Rock Cottage/Cabin." For the whopping price of a $144 a night which includes tax, the place was awful. You are... More

Convenient location for rv if yosemite campgrounds are full. 1 hour shuttle to yosemite visitor center. Free access to pools of next door Cedar Lodge. The kids loved it. Unfriendly woman at reception and disgusting bathrooms but we didn t care having our own in rv. The place needs new management and maintenance for sure !

Great location - a short drive from the park's entrance with full hook ups for RVs. The site itself was in a beautiful area but not well maintained and the toilets/ showers were dirty. Such a shame as with a little TLC this could be an awesome site.

If I could rate it less I certainly would! Unfortunately I arrived late and the last campground in Yosemite was full so I was forced to look outside the park and found Indian Flat. This is truly the worst campground I've ever camped at in my life! Extremely ill kept, dirty and awfully dusty, the toilet facilities are insufficient and... More

Let's start with the good stuff. There's a nice pool on the neighbouring property that campground customers can use. This place is also just 30 minutes from Yosemite Valley. That's where the good stuff ends. This place is dusty and dingy. The toilets and showers are old and scungy. A fellow camper advised us to use the outdoor showers because... More
