“Bump Bump Bump down the road...”
Reviewed July 18, 2007

First things first, I must mention the shabby road into this campground. Normally I wouldn't complain, but coming back from a day of taking in the sites it was a bit annoying trying to avoid huge potholes for 5 miles. It's a 20 minute drive once you turn off the Tioga Rd. Seemed easier to do going up rather than going down. RV's are not recommended.

It isn't all bad though. Camp sites seemed reasonably large, with fire rings, picnic tables, and a pretty nice sized bear locker. Some were definitely better than others. The worst of which stayed open the entire weekend. No running water, so you'll have to boil if you're taking from Yosemite Creek. Pit toilets seemed to be in pretty nice shape, especially with the low volume they get compared to some of the higher traffic ones elsewhere. Overall not a terrible option, but the road leaves something to be desired. Next time I'll look elsewhere.

  • Liked — Low key, and quiet
  • Disliked — The road.....did I mention that yet?
