Nice campground in the Yosemite Valley

The campground is nice. Great place to start hikes. Easy to get around the valley with bus system. Reservations are hard in general. We were lucky to get hold of a last day cancelation. There were a lot of tent campers, regardless of the snow and cold.

Nice in winter months

Gets hot in summer, spots are close by to each other but usually respectful neighbors, sometimes idiots come by leaving trash and making noise at odd hours but closes at 7pm so you won't get people coming in the middle of the night. 5 dollars day pass, 25 total for camping. Nice huge area, can go…

Beautiful even if it’s 100 degrees

Beautiful campground. I’ve been camping here for a few years now while rafting the Merced river. On this particular trip the weather was over 100 degrees but we had the river right next to us to cool dow. The campsite and the bathrooms were really clean. It was nice to occasionally see the ranger…

Hidden gem

This was our first time to Millerton Lake / Meadows Campground. We feel like we have the campground almost to ourselves for ourselves given that it's January. We imagine it's crowded in summer months. The campground is very lovely and well maintained. Most sites overlook the lake. Non-electric…

Launching Point for many Adventures

There are about 10 sites on the edge of the meadow. There are many trails nearby than access the Ansel Adams Wilderness. The Minarets/ Mammoth Pool road from North Fork is the best access through 2022 due to bridge damage on Beasore road. Most of the road is a two lane paved byway that has some…

Not open Due to Hazard Trees

This campground was closed in 2021 due to hazard trees that died in the last drought. I dont think it will reopen in 2022 but have heard that funding from the Great American Outdoors Act will be used to eventually repair this campground.

Damaged by Creek Fire

Some trees survived in the creek but the 2020 Creek fire decimated the area. There are hazard trees and other damage that needs repair. I do not expect this campground to open in 2022.

Survived Creek Fire but Damaged

A lot of trees survived in the creek but the surrounding area was decimated. There are hazard trees and other damage that will have to be repaired. I don't expect it to open in 2022.

Isolated Campground with Lots to Explore

There are a lot of backroads to explore in the area. The campground was on the edge of the 2020 Creek Fire. It was closed in 2021 and hazard trees were removed. I would expect it to open in 2022 but recommend calling the Bass Lake Ranger Station.

Autumn Getaway

Great level area overlooking rolling hills dotted with old oaks and granite outcroppings. James is great and accommodating. It was quiet and the views were incredible.

Easy access to popular Mist Trail

We typically choose to stay in traditional camp grounds and haul in our own gear and pitch tents but this time we had permits to hike up Half Dome and chose to stay here due to the location of being able to park, sleep and wake up early to start our day hike.

This is great access to start the…

Amazing and friendly!

We had a great time with Jason and his family. We stayed for four nights and they were so generous. The animals were a huge perk for our kids and the kittens and climbing trees and boulders kept our three kids occupied for hours. They let our kids help feed the sheep, pigs, goats, chickens, and…

Yosmite Jewel

Reserved the site on-line and later discovered it would not acccommodate a trailer larger than 12'.  Upon arriving I discovered the site was not a back-in; but, was alongside the loop road bounded by boulders.  No problem with pulling my 19' trailer in towed by a large SUV. Whew.
