MUST GO HERE

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…

We had the pleasure of staying with Jason and his family at the Shooting Star Sanctuary. Jason was kind and super helpful since the moment we contacted him.

As far as amenities go: There is Wi-Fi throughout the property which is free to use. The bathroom and shower inside the house are available…

Disappointed.

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…

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!

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…

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.

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…

Camping is not allowed

Beautiful day use area. Very close to the sweet water camp ground. Nice waterfall and swimming area.

Remember to pack out trash. There was a lot of trash when there is trash cans right in the parking lot)-:

Quiet spot with great host

I stayed at Spring Cove during a trip to Yosemite. While it’s a long drive to get into the park, I found myself thankful for the quiet rest after the busy park.

The host made this campground even better. They were friendly, helpful and kept the grounds very clean and welcoming.

The lake has…

Great place!

We had a blast here. You’re 25 miles from the park entrance, on a straight path. The sites were a great space and the pool and playground was a lot of fun of the kids. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful.

I couldn’t believe the short drive to the Yosemite entrance. It took 5-10 min to get there and from there about 30-45 to get to the valley. The person checking us in was very nice and genuine. The bathrooms were clean and the showers were available!! Beautiful grounds. Was able to get WiFi at the…
