The only real problem is that we didn't stay longer! Although we really needed to stay somewhere with a shower by that point so had to leave. The campground is great, everything you hope and expect from a National Park camground. We were right at the very far end and it didn't upset our stay at all. Toilets are clean... More

I stayed at this place whilst on a road trip across the country so it was hardly my first experience with campgrounds. Before that we stayed at 5 different campgrounds in various national parks so we knew the average standard and prices. There was so many things wrong with this one, that made it not worth the money at all.... More

I'd return in a heartbeat! Tuolumne Meadows is simply stunning: An alpine meadow surrounded by High Sierra Peaks a short distance from the very visible Sierra crestline. Trails go up, they go down, and a few let you walk for miles on essentially flat ground. Flat, though, doesn't mean boring. We took a day hike along the John Muir trail--about... More

The best part of the Tuolumne Meadows Campground is that it is located so close to the meadows, one of the most beautiful parts of Yosemite, that many people don't explore. The location makes watching sunset on the meadow and being able to walk back to your campsite. Given the altitude mornings can be a bit cold even in the... More

If you want to avoid the masses down in Yosemite Valley (as we did) the Tuolumne Meadows is your campground of choice. Spectacular surroundings (lakes, rocks, trails), nice spots under pine trees, interesting people. The only drawback is that it is quite full and busy in summertime.

My positive comments relate to the setting, not the campground. Tuolumne Meadows is a gorgeous area. As others have mentioned, the area is less crowded than Yosemite Valley (about 1.5 hours away). The scenery is different than the valley, unique in its own way. The campground is situated on a gentle slope in a great location for hiking, climbing, etc.... More

I LOVE Tuolumne. We've been 1 week a year for the past 5 years. This was the 1st place I camped at Yosemite & was in awe at the beauty and serenity of this place. We drove down to the valley once & it was not our style- very crowded & touristy. I love the isolation in Tuolumne because it... More

Tuolumne is a great campsite, especially after staying several nights at the overcrowded campsites of the Yosemite Valley. The sites are spaced apart decently and there are plenty of trees and undergrowth to give a little privacy. It wasn't overfilled the night of our stay either. The only downside is that you don't get to select your camp spot, it... More

Prior to visiting Tuolumne Meadows campground, I was a little concerned because of some of the review indicating that the campground was crowded and dirty. Now that I have been there, I feel very safe in recommending the campground to anyone. Please remember this is a campground, not a 5 star hotel. I do no think there are any showers... More

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
