Went by here on Thanksgiving day 2020 Closed ,gated
North of Summerdale is goat meadow snow play area. Big parking lot that people boondock and car camp in. I car camped just of the 06 forest road. Its the road to the left before the parking lot. There are a handful of spots for dispersed camping. Road is decent and good Verizon signal.
You can also hike to Mariposa Grove from the goat meadow parking lot. Or you can drive about 3 miles from parking lot to a gate that is about a 1.5 mile walk to the Mariposa Grove hiking park.
Very good and scenic hike.
One of the kids favorite spots. It’s absolutely gorgeous and deer are running free everywhere. This site was awesome, it overlooked the entire lake with a 2 minute drive down to the parking lot.
Pro tip: before you go through the ranger station, make a right onto the dirt road. Go down to the round about and park there. No one is on that side of the lake!
We went during Covid so we didn’t go in the water but it felt so warm on my fingers. The views around it are pretty surreal. I could sit here for the rest of my life.
