We had a hard time getting reservations in the park and this was our last choice, but at least we got a spot. If you do camp here, try to camp on the outer edge. When you are in the middle, you are practically camping with other people you are so close, plus, lots of people walk through your camp... More

My son and daughter-in-law are experienced campers but this was my first time tent camping. Somehow my son got a reservation just a week before we visited Aug. 3; probably a last-minute cancellation. Site 92 had a gentle slope for the tent and the campground host's trailer was just across the road, the bathrooms were close, and surrounding campers all... More

After reading a number of negative reviews, we (our couple friends from Germany, my husband, myself, and our 19 month old daughter) headed toward Hodgdon Meadow, with low expectations and an inability to pronounce its name. LOCATION - We lucked out with a great site (#42) that is in the outermost ring. Its boundary to the east is woods, and... More

Camped here with my husband in May, 2013. Campsite was packed although never more then 1 other person in the bathroom. Bathrooms were clean and well stocked. The campsite itself was average at best. There was no flat area to actually pitch the tent so we chose the area with the least slope, which was not very comfortable. Not much... More

Hogdon Meadow is one of the outlying campgrounds to stay at when you can't get a space in Yosemite Valley. The Bad: A poorly organized and maintained campround with campsites that are extremely close together. Do not expect any privacy. Most sites are on a hill side although a few are level. We had site 68 which was fairly level... More

Of course if you could get a site in the valley you wouldn't be looking here. But that said as a back-up site it could be much worse. The bathrooms are very old and not cleaned much considering there are ONLY a total of 6 stalls for the women in the entire campground, don't wait until the last minute to... More

I am not the sort of person who writes these knit picky reviews – I honest want to help other travelers. With that being said Hodgdon Meadows would be my last choice to camp in Yosemite. I have camped all my life, all over the US, and Hodgdon Meadow is not only the poorest layout/design for a campground, it was... More

We felt that we lucked out with many different factors with this campground. We blindly chose a campsite from the website shortly after they opened the reservations for our time period. Which, I'm glad we did, because the campground was sold out by the time we were getting things ready for our trip. Our site was one of the tent... More

Just got back from Yosemite and there's so much to write about, I almost don't know where to start. But since this review is about Hodgdon Meadow in particular, I guess I'll start with our campsite. Campsite #17 - We felt VERY lucky to have gotten a campsite at all bc we booked it only 3 wks prior. The ranger... More

We had a 2 night reservation in June 2011, but arrived a day late and were glad we did. We'd booked a site for a 10x10 tent and could not find space for even a 2 person tent on the whole site. The site was not just unlevel but steeply pitched and seriously washed out. Eventually borrowed garden tools from... More
