Luckily we only stayed at hodgdon meadows for one night, we could not get out of there fast enough the next morning. The campground is poorly laid out and managed. Roads through the campground are very rough, bathrooms were dirty, no showers, and they do not sell firewood here (if we had known this before it wouldn't have been an issue but by the time we figured it out the closest place to buy some was closed and we had to gather fallen wood from the nearby woods in the dark). The worst thing about this campground though is the sites. Sites ate clustered together with no privacy, sites are not leveled or delineated. There are no paths through the campground and people just walk through each others sites. We were unlucky enough to be in site 57 which was right next to the bathroom and people walked through our site, next to our tent talking, shining flashlights in etc all night long.

We reserved a site that said it was appropriate for an RV. We were on a SEVERE slant. I mean so severe that we had to hold on to our countertop & table to walk in the RV. When we saw how bad it was I walked back to the ranger check-in station at the campground entrance. I asked the ranger if they had any cancellations because our RV was on a severe slant. He said "Let me guess, it's site #35?" He was right on. He said that everyone that rents that site complains and that there was nothing he could do about it. He showed no empathy & cold heartedly handed me a piece a paper and said we could lodge a complaint if we wanted to. Lovely, like that would do any good.

My husband tried taking a shower in the RV. We placed a towel under the bathroom door but we were so sloped that the towel barely helped and water ran the whole way from the bathroom down to the drivers seat! On the bright side my kids did have fun having slide races on their butts in the RV and sitting at opposite ends rolling water bottles to each other!

We stayed in campsite #4. Then we had paid and were supposed to stay in campsite #98 for two nights. This site had no place to pitch a tent. Everything was at a 40 degree slope. There are two bathroom buildings (2 stalls each for men) for the whole campsite. There was duct tape holding one toilet seat together with a wooden lid covering the toilet tank. The bathrooms were covered in filth from not being cleaned! We had just come in from camping at Kings Canyon where things were maintained. The only water at the site was at the bathroom. The gate keeper made everyone in the vehicle (Made for a very slow entrance, some over an hour) read the bear warning because they were handing out fines to people who weren't within arms reach of their food at all times. This was a trip we had planned for over a year. We didn't stay in campsite #98 as we couldn't see sleeping on a slope like that! There were others there who felt the same way. Campsites are very, very small. People were under a lot of stress from living so close. If this is what the future of camping in Yosemite is going to be like we will never return. I camped in the Valley many, many, but this was the worst!

The staff were very helpful, felt safe, was a great atmosphere and excitment on the campground. Everyone around us were friendly. We were lucky enough to have an RV site at the top of the campground where it was a little quieter and away from the larger groups. Bathrooms are not much to rave about...but who cares...your in Yosemite!!!

This campground seemed to be mostly for RVs but we were perfectly fine in a tent. The camp sites were clean and spacious. Great place to stay if you want to enjoy the Yosemite Valley and escape from the crowds in the evening. Overall a quiet and decent campground. The bathrooms are typical of a public campground bathroom. There is no soap and no hot water and no showers. We hiked during the day in Yosemite Valley and on our way home stopped at the public showers. We enjoyed our overnight stay here and for $20 per night who can complain!
