We loved this campground!

Narrow drive and sharp turns in the campground so we didn't camp with our RV but we did tent camp. There were smaller RVs there and plenty of camper vans. The sites are spacious and in the pines. Great location in the valley. Can walk everywhere or bike everywhere in the valley. AT&T service…

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…

Perfect View

Camped here one night. Was coming from thousand island lake heading to tuolumne meadows. Found it by accident, was in a rush to find a spot before it got dark. Place was amazing. Perfect to watch a sunset , it overlooks the valley

Perfect spot

So far this is the nicest place ive ever camp at from all my backpacking trips. Cant beat lake with the mountain in the background, tranquillity and spacious area. Only con can be mosquitoes. Other than that this place is a must to visit

Beautiful views from campsite

The views of the lake from this campground are stunning. The sites are small and tents have to be on the gravel pad. Clean pit toilets but couldn’t located the potable water.

Arrived mid morning on a Saturday in Mid June and was able to secure a site.

Close to Dorabelle Cove and a really nice swimming hole.

Walked down to the lake and spent time swimming. Trails around the campground are fun and we saw lots of deer. The campground itself was pretty dusty dew to the drought and not much shade in our site. Ordered pizza from Shaver Pizza Parlor and it was Yummy. Boat rentals are available, but we fished…

Very close to beautiful lake

We rented an RV and had it delivered to the campsite and set up; all sites have electric hookups and water spigots nearby, but one loop has full RV hookups at each spot. We were very close to the lake, just a short walk, and it's beautiful. Super clear, relaxing sounds, easy trails all along. It…

Wide open and peaceful

Up on the foothills, this expansive campground is in a nice, peaceful setting. Exposed to the elements, it was quite windy with no shade the 2 days we stayed there, except for the nice little shelters on each site. Most of the sites are by reservation only but one loop is first-come. Wonderful…

Hidden Gem

We drove down and back up Green Creek Rd for about 2 hours to find the perfect spot. We settled on the second space as it’s pretty tucked back and offers a front row seat to the creek. The road was windy and very bumpy. At times, the bottom of my sedan was brushing against some bushes. This is…

Everything in one

This was by far my favorite camping! Besides the lake being a one minute walk from your site they also had super clean restrooms with running water. The view of the lake is amazing! The drive up was nice too. The fishing was amazing!! Everyone with a license caught fish! There’s convenience stores…
