Backcountry campsite with a couple of amenities

Glen Aulin is one of a series of High Country camps in Yosemite National Park.  The concept behind these camps is that you can walk 6-10 miles each day with only a day pack, and spend the night in these supported camps where tents, water, and food are provided by concessionaires.  Really cool idea,…

Great weekend getaway spot

Let me start off by saying there was a fairly big issue with 2 of the 3 spots we reserved. The paved lots were so far from level that we didn't have enough leveling blocks. I am confident that these unlevel spots , G80 and G81, are the exception and not the norm.

With that bit out of the way,…

  • Even with this stack of blocks, we were down about 4 inches in the front.
  • Beautiful surroundings!

Upper Pines Oasis

Great campground, nestled beneath the giant granite cliffs. For people with mobility issues, this site is a good walk away from the inner valley trails, fine for anyone else who is up for walking distances, because that is why you came to Yosemite!

FYI: No soap or hand drying items in bathrooms…

Full of families and close drive to trails

We arrived Fourth of July weekend and the drive down to the campground is absolutely stunning! We stayed at site 120 which was very spacious and partially shaded. The river was a lot lower than I have seen the past few times I have been here 4 years ago. Therefore there was a lot of people playing…

Camp here if it’s too late to summit Donahue SB

We camped here because it was too late in the day to summit Donahue Pass. Plenty of water! Plan well for water crossing. Impeccable views!!

Incredible views

It’s worth it to grab a fishing license up the road at Ernie’s. It was much windier than we anticipated, so definitely stale your tent down. We woke to a neighbors tent in the trees! Showers were closed because of covid, so check the site for those details. Make sure you grab a bite at the Whoa…

Lovely Rustic City

aka Curry Village

My daughters and I have now stayed in both the canvas tent/cabin and a hard-sided cabin. Both provide comfortable beds with sheets and a warm blanket on each. (If you like fluffy pillows, bring one from home.) 

We stayed in the heated tent/cabin during a major snowfall and…

Last Minute camping

So we were typically boondockers but when the recent forest closures took effect we felt like nowhere to go. Luckily, Sequoia and Kings NP is open. So drove there from San Diego. It was a 6 hour drive. We went to the cisitors center per park rangers advice to get a decent phone signal and we were…

Deer Creek Camping

We stayed in site 15 and it was very nice. Large site with plenty of room for trailer and two big tents. Very short walk down to Huntington Lake and was ideal for swimming with the kids.

Bring your friends, everyone else does

A party place in mid august. Lots of louder groups that were up late into the night.

Site 84 was technically approved for a trailer over 10 feet, but a serious squeeze to get our trailer and explorer to fit within the lines.

Some restrooms were closed, and the open ones were very crowded at…

Beautiful. Reservations required during peak months

My family stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. We have a 32 foot travel trailer. During peak months, reservations were required (opens one month in advance).  There's a threaded water spigot attached to the bathroom toward the front of the campground.  The others weren't threaded for a hose. It…

Not bad for primitive camping/boondocking

Nice quiet place to camp next to Yosemite. Pretty bare bones just a trash can and port a potties but it’s free :) note that somewhere to the east of the trash can there must be a wasp nest as I woke up to quite a few around my tent but they didn’t seem too aggressive

Great Experience! I have been coming here every year, so far. This time around I was fortunate enough to see a Buck, multiple Doe, and a Bear. They get extremely close, and roam around your campsite so keep food and scented items in your Bear Box and you won’t have trouble. Keep your distance and…
