          Hi I would like to ask you about the Crane Flat Campground in Yosemite. Does it have a shuttle service or is better to take our RV to the Valley? I was thinking of trying to get a campsite at the Valley, when I came across this campsite reviews and after our visit a few years ago in Touloumne Meadows we wanted to go to the valley but I'm having second thoughs now. Any tips would be welcomed as I would need to make the reservation in two days. Thanks in advance.

          If you have a reservation at one of the campgrounds within Yosemite NP, do you still have to pay the park entrance fee, or does your camping fee include entrance?

          We have a 27 ft RV and were able to secure an RV site at Crane Flat campground. If we want to drive into the Valley to go hiking how soon should we aim to leave Crane Flat in the morning and are there Parking sites in the Valley that we can then use to catch the public transportation buses?
