“Best of the campgrounds at Yosemite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

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. Neighbours super friendly. No bears. Peaceful. Serene. Fire roaring.. Bliss! and only $10 a night.

Room Tip: Yellow sticker under rock on a post means space in use.. but walk around don't drive as you will...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2011

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 about 10 minutes away. This campground does not have flush toilets and it gets really stinky. The bear lockers are big enough for two large coolers and then some. There is a creek running though the campground but most of the sites near it are not very private.

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 that flows into a pool below. Awesome. Watch small children though....20 steps and there's a 50' drop to the canyon below. One more thing...permanent port-a-potties. So, if that's not your thing .....
