So close to Yosemite!

Not gonna lie, at first this place freaked me out. You’re really out in the middle of nowhere on a side street off of the highway. At night it is pitch black, you can’t even see your hand in front of your face. Pretty basic campground, pit toilet and water spigots available. Only 4 tent sites. There is a nice river that flows right next to the campsite which is relaxing to listen to. The highway is right across the river so there are cars driving by but not too much of a nuisance. About 5-10 from the entrance into YNP. I would stay here again!
