I loved camping at Crane Flat. The campsites are relatively big so you have plenty of room. You can also gather your own firewood and there a lots of fallen trees from which to gather chunks of wood. An ax would be helpful but we didn't need one and found lots of wood from gathering it on our own (although... More

We booked site #536 in early August. We loved it there and would book the same site again without hesitation. Bathrooms: we weren't right next to them (thank goodness) but could easily walk to two different ones that were fairly close and far exceeded my very low expectations--they were clean. Remember, there are no lights and no soap, so plan... More

We stayed on site 116, very uneven, but most sites are uneven. Other than this it's more like an overflow campground when all sites in the valley are booked out. Try to stay in the valley, also avoids to commute on a narrow and windy road.

Loved this campground. Just far enough away from the valley that you felt the peace and quiet, but not so far that it was a terrible drive in. The elevation made it cooler than the valley too which was great. It has nice big spots with trees and rocks and plenty of room for setting up. No showers of course,... More

This camp, on the far western end of Yosemite, is quiet, secluded and well maintained. The sites range from good sized to large. there is plenty of shade and several bathrooms with running water and flush toilets. The one big drawback is that there are no showers. The closest shower is approximately 30 minutes away in Yosemite Valley and they... More

Great campsite located near the back. Nothing but woods behind us. On 4th of July weekend, I lost my gold wedding band at campsite #424. I believe it's somewhere near or around the firepit area. If found, please turn into campsite host (#425 near restrooms) as they have my shipping information. Thanks for your help and enjoy this great campsite.

Three of us split a tent for 2 nights. I can't remember which number we had sorry but it felt like it was the best one for seclusion. We had a huge boulder on one side of us and the site was down from the car on the edge of the meadow but still in the trees. Looks like a... More

We had site 208 with a 33 ft motorhome. Its pretty easy to reserve a site here on off holiday weekends and other days. The reason is because its pretty far from Yosemite Valley. 30 mins down a 8% grade narrow curvey road. Ok if you are in a car. There is a gas station across the street with bus... More

We stayed here for one night in June. We managed to book a night about a week before we camped, but couldn't get two nights in a row- definitely plan ahead if you want to stay here in the summer. Good-sized site with more than enough room for two small tents. Each site has a large food locker for storing... More
