My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in September 2012 and LOVED it. Was a highlight of our month trip to the US. The cabins are concrete floored and canvas walled and not the cleanest but it was a great way to have a camping experience without having to buy tents etc. We bought a polystyrene chilli bin and some disposable plates / cooking trays etc from Wallmart on the way in and cooked on the open fire each night. As well as many friendly squirrels that i adored (coming from NZ where there aren't any..) we saw bats, a raccoon, heaps of dear and other cool wildlife. The Yosemite town area itself was a bit average.. overpriced food and not much going on but if you just want to get away and spend time with the people you're there with, do some hiking and see some amazing scenery this is the way to do it. We were lucky to get a cabin right on the river.. we arrived at night not knowing what there was to see and woke up to breathtaking surroundings. The idea of a possible beer or mountain lion sighting (we didn't see any despite trying our hardest to..) was pretty cool too.. next time we'll go back when they're more likely to be around.
