The host Jason and his whole family were so so sweet!! Honestly better than an Airbnb experience. He kept in touch with us all throughout our drive there and helped us get set up upon arrival. Gave us a tour of his whole farm, got to play with all the farm animals, and allowed us to use his house…

Well if you want to pay $26 for a very weedy, sun only lot, crammed amongst many RV’s with no toilet and no water, here is your place to camp. First time to Yosemite. We were very overwhelmed with all the rules, all the people, and the limited information the Rangers gave you while entering the…

Good stop over

It was a great overnight stop for us on our way to Yosemite. No AT&T cell service. Can get 1 hr of free wifi every 24hrs or pay for more wifi. The park is huge with a lot to do and different camping accommodations for all types. Easy asphalt roads throughout campground in the pines. Sites are…

Views of a dry lake bed

A nice campground.  Lots of space between sites, some with electric and water.  Nice views of where the lake should be, with volcanic outcroppings all around.  Site 01 was shaded, level and easy to back our 24 foot trailer into.  Unfortunately the lake was way low due to drought.   Things we did…

  • Site 01 picnic table and fire ring on opposite side as door.
  • view from our picnic table.

Beautiful spot just outside of Yosemite

It’s Memorial weekend and the weather is in the 70s, sun is shining through the forest trees, the birds are singing and this site is a perfect base camp for my day trips to hike in Yosemite.

Here is the correct location. You can take a dirt road from this parking lot in order to camp in the…

I didn't stay. Can't believe it has 5 stars!

I guess if you stayed on the water it might be nice but the campground itself was pretty bad. 1st they have blocked any phone signal so even with my WeBoost I could not work from here. 2nd the flies were horrible. 3rd my site was across from overflowing trash can. 4th the hookups are on the wrong…

Very windy

I don’t know how often it happens but the night was very windy. We might have been unlucky but I saw so many trees lean the same angle, meaning the valley could be the path of wind and tend to blow strong. If you plan to camp, not RV, watch out!

Correct Location Below

As previously mentioned, these coordinates are not correct, if you travel beyond the coordinates towards the South Park Entrance and pass the Springdale Campground on your left, you will see a sign shortly afterwards that says SnowPlay area 1/2 mile and that’s where you will turn onto Mount Raymond…

Tight sites

We didn’t know that the “20 miles from Yosemite” just meant the entrance, we still had to drive about 30 miles to get into the valley. The site we pulled into was really tight with a hill and drop off on either side so our picnic table had to be in front of the airstream. You are right next to the…

Wrong coordinates

This is not public camping area. Someone's driveway. Beware!!!

Little shade. Walk in sites

Campground is situated on a very long narrow dirt road. Besides the proximity to Yosemite this campground was not a favorite. 2 had the best shade and it gets hot.

Convenient, shady respite

Easy on/off from Hwy. 99. Nice management. Spaces large and lots of shade coverage. Close to hwy but far enough that road noise isn't onerous. Train passes through once at night time, bring earplugs. Clean, tidy, well kept campground.

Close to the lake

Very nice camp host. Clean drinking water very close walking distance from any site. Water is very close so you can just walk your paddle board or kayak. Clean bathrooms! With real toilets that actually flush. Nice shade. Bring bug spray close to the water so there’s not of mosquitoes. Can buy wood…
