This first come first serve campground is about a 40 minute drive to the valley floor. Its 3 miles off the road, only the last 1/2 mile a little rough and potholed. Best suited for tent camping. Vault toilets and you should bring your own water. Only $10 a site. Very quiet and nice people. This will be our first... More

All sites are FCFS - $10/night. US $ or checks accepted. No designated group sites but #1-3 are HUGE. #1 has enough space for 4 tents and very secluded. Elevation is 6300ft so it's much cooler than Yosemite valley area. No potable water, vault toilets, pets ok, no campground host. It is off Tio\ga Rd/120 - 3 miles in (1st... More

Found a spot easily at 5:30pm on a wednesday after memorial.... More

We were lucky enough to find a great campsite here with no reservation on a Sunday afternoon. The road down to this campground is a steep and bumpy three miles and not for RVs, so it is great for tent camping! It's close enough to the main attractions without being crazy. There is a gas station with a little store... More

out of the valley....away from the crowds. BUT close enough (about 25 minutes) for day trips into the valley. Get a spot on the stream. Oh and for a fun ... but freeeezing dip (daily bath if you want to call it that) follow the stream about a quarter to half mile down (there's a trail) to the small waterfall... More
