This campground is fantastic! Sure, you’re about an hour’s drive (with some entry station traffic) to Yosemite’s Tioga wilderness and Valley attractions, but driving three miles down the access road to the campground just adds to how special this place is.
It’s secluded, away from road noise and the river’s flow and swimming hole is a very short stroll away- some sites have the river right behind them. Not to mention that the camp hosts are fabulous. There’s a lot of attention that goes into keeping the grounds well kept and clean.
The sites are rather large, too, and not stacked on top of one another. There’s enough space between each site. We also appreciated being only three miles away from Hetch Hetchy, too. It is a part of Yosemite that does not receive many visitor’s and to take in what used to be there (It was John Muir’s favorite valley), is a trip in itself.
Treat yourself and stay at Dimond O, you won’t regret it!
