This first come first serve campground is about a 40 minute drive to the valley floor. Its 3 miles off the road, only the last 1/2 mile a little rough and potholed. Best suited for tent camping. Vault toilets and you should bring your own water. Only $10 a site. Very quiet and nice people. This will be our first... More

All sites are FCFS - $10/night. US $ or checks accepted. No designated group sites but #1-3 are HUGE. #1 has enough space for 4 tents and very secluded. Elevation is 6300ft so it's much cooler than Yosemite valley area. No potable water, vault toilets, pets ok, no campground host. It is off Tio\ga Rd/120 - 3 miles in (1st... More

This is what it's all about. No reservation BS, no checkins or rangers looking at everything you do. Very large areas for camping and you really feel like you are enjoying the wilderness as opposed to the touristy harsh run campgrounds everywhere else. I will definitely come back here. Found a spot easily at 5:30pm on a wednesday after memorial.... More

We were lucky enough to find a great campsite here with no reservation on a Sunday afternoon. The road down to this campground is a steep and bumpy three miles and not for RVs, so it is great for tent camping! It's close enough to the main attractions without being crazy. There is a gas station with a little store... More

out of the valley....away from the crowds. BUT close enough (about 25 minutes) for day trips into the valley. Get a spot on the stream. Oh and for a fun ... but freeeezing dip (daily bath if you want to call it that) follow the stream about a quarter to half mile down (there's a trail) to the small waterfall... More
