Tuolumne Meadows is a beautiful area within Yosemite, but the group sites were not commensurate to the location. Bathrooms were old and in need if upgrading, the campsite loop road is very dusty and the campsite itself is not very pretty. All in all, I really enjoyed exploring the area but was very disappointed in the camping. Tip: Bring lots... More

The location of this campground is wonderful. Loads of trailheads. While I read many reviews that recommend Loop A, I did not think that was the best area. We were originally assigned a very small campsite on a corner that held lots of traffic. We asked if we could move to the campsite next to it and had no problem... More

I don't do a lot of camping, especially when there are no showers. This trip we had a large group of people so we got a group site. The group sites are kind of in the middle of the campground surrounded by people. I liked it...not loved it. The Lyell Fork runs on the north side of the campground and... More

We were staying in Yosemite for 5 nights. Spent 3 nights in Wawona, and 2 nights here. We had reservations, but they just assign you a spot when you pull in. I'd never been before, so I'm not sure if you can request a site or not. We got put in site C92. The road is just like everyone here... More

We have spent one night (end of July) at Tuolumne Meadows Campground and it was a little disappointment. I know – lack of research. First of all, campground is far away (1.5 hour) from main Yosemite attractions, located in Yosemite Valley. Happily you can hike for example to Elizabeth Lake, as the trailhead you will find in B loop of... More

We spent 5 nights in Tuolumne Meadows campground. Spectacular setting! Facilities are well maintained; sites, toilets, garbage disposal, and bear lockers. Convenient to Park activities and store. We didn't see any bears during our stay, a sign of the good bear management being practiced by the park and campers! Close to stream and lots of hiking trails. Especially good location... More

I would not recommend Tuolumne Meadows as the place to camp for their first visit to Yosemite. BE AWARE IT IS 55 MILES AWAY from Yosemites main sites in the Yosemite Valley, such as Nevada Falls, Half Dome, etc. It takes 1 to 1.5 hours ONE WAY from Tuolumne Meadows to the Yosemite Valley. Distance aside, the campground was much... More

I love this campground, for several reasons. #1 it is half advance reservations, so I am able to plan ahead and know I have a place to camp. #2 it is half first come first served, so I am able to be spontaneous and provided I get an early start to the day and it is not a holiday or... More

After reading the reviews my wife and I were excited to visit. For us it wasn't worth the drive from San Francisco for one night. The campgrounds were clean but the feeling was very awkward. We were near the road and there wasn't much privacy between the sites. The views were amazing but for us not the greatest camping. Camping... More

You can't beat the location of this campground. You can walk to the grill and store and to numerous trailheads. As with most campgrounds, some sites are better than others. If you get lucky and get a good site, you will most certainly love your stay. If you get a small, odd shaped site with a slope or a cold,... More
