We stayed here during a weekend trip to Yosemite. The location couldn't be faulted, it was absolutely phenomenal! The camp is located in the centre of the park and many of the walks can be reached on foot.
The camp is incredibly basic. There were just two beds, a light and a mirror in our tent which were all in need of a very good clean. There are several toilet blocks which are easy to locate and a shower block near the entrance. There are also lockers for food items as there are plenty of wildlife that frequent the camp such as raccoons and squirrels. I'd recommend keeping any valuables locked in the car as the tents aren't secure at all, the door is just a plastic sheet with no lock. At night it can be quite noisy and smoky from barbecues but this is typical of any camp site.
If you're comfortable being outdoors and aren't afraid of bugs, dirt or wildlife than this is perfect for visiting Yosemite. It's affordable and in keeping with the nature of the park.
