My wife and I tent camped here during our honeymoon for two nights. It is what you would expect from a primitive campsite. We really liked that RVs can only run generators during set times during the day and the latest they can run them is until 7pm. It's nice because you don't have to worry about the noise of generators running while you're trying to sleep. The rangers are very strict about putting food in the bear locker. The people next to us didn't put all their food in it and the ranger confiscated their food and wrote them a citation. The lockers are large enough to hold everything you would need. The bathrooms are real flushable toilets, but there are no showers in the Upper Pines campground. The closest showers are in Curry Village, which is only a 5 to 10 minute walk. You can also have campfires, which was a surprise since California's in a drought. They do not allow you to have a campfire in the morning because they don't want the air quality to suffer. The campground is very close to trail-heads and shuttle stops.
