I wish I would have read the reviews before booking a site at this place. I definitely would not have stayed here had I known of the filthy bathrooms lacking basic soap & paper towels & the dripping shower pressure of either freezing cold or scalding hot water. Previous reviews are spot-on: Keith & Gordon told us "the plumber can't... More

No laundry facility. Dusty nothing but dirt camp ground ! Bathrooms/showers Very unclean and old. The day we were there they had no hot water. We have been on the road across America for a month now. Absolutely the worst camp ground we have camped.

I have camped across the country and have never experienced such awful conditions. Especially for the price. I understand Yosemite was six miles down the road but this place was more than the Grand Canyon. $42 as opposed to $36 for inside the park at the Grand Canyon.

We visited Yosemite everyday for a week. And we stayed here for our home base. It isn’t exactly close, but it’s the closest campground on Hwy 140, the Hwy we used to get in. It’s perhaps 14 miles to the park entrance. The campground has full hook-ups and access to the swimming pool at the lodge next door. We didn’t... More

Yes, the location is great, they are close to the entrance of Yosemite National Park. The owner knows that they are close, so tourists will come. The campground has no hot showers (they will use the excuse that 'the plumber will come to fix this'). They also allow groups. This wouldn't be a problem, but there's nobody who will tell... More

We weren't expecting much having read the reviews on here but we were pleasantly suprised! We stayed in a tent cabin with a double bed. There was no fridge. Yes the toilets and showers are a little unclean but we found it very relaxing and the tent cabin itself was clean and comfortable. The location was great and we loved... More

We booked this site despite the other reviews because of its location on our RV route. The site lived up to expectations - dusty, too many RVs squeezed in and the toilets were filthy - I have to accept my husbands word for that as he told me I must not use them. He refused to even though he had... More

These campgrounds are very spacious, treed and shady but I hated their showers and toilet facility. The ladies room had three stalls but no paper towels over several days. The common toilets had no mirrors and no soap. The showers had minimal hot water and could stand a good scrubbing.

I stayed here for 2 nights as I booked late and this was the only accommodation available close to Yosemite Park. I had a tent cabin with 2 beds. There was a fridge and desk available and towels and bed linen were provided. Shared bathrooms and showers as you expect in a campground. I had no complaints - it was... More
