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!!

Bomb diggity

First I checked out the crab cooker campsite nearby and the road was ROUGH. The drive is definitely worth it if you plan to stay there without going back and forth into town.

This site is closer to the main highway and is easier to access even though it’s not as pretty.

It’s a Wednesday night and…

Excellent place

I came to Green Creek 8/29. The weather was perfect. Stayed 4 days here. Not hot during the day but a bit chilly at night around 40 degrees. Very nice camp sites next to the creek. Clear water not murky or gross. Absolutely no one will bother you. Very secluded and relaxing. We saw about 10 people…

Family oriented

This place was awesome. Only a 15 min hike to the lake and a 30 min drive into Yosemite. We spent the weekend in site 126 it was a level site with limited shade and full hookups. Bingo night was awesome and the staff was very friendly. Would highly recommend

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

Beautiful and quiet

This is my new favorite place to camp. Each site is very large and sheltered with trees in between each site. The campground sits in an aspen grove which was neat. We plan to come back in the fall when the trees start to turn.

Great Location!

Great Campground and location between Mammoth and June Lake. Once you drive in Glass Creek Rd, the campground splits in two sections. On the right you will have half the campground spots (25+), both shaded and sunny, near the creek and also out in the open. Cross a small bridge over the creek and…

Family friendly beautiful campground

Amazing weather and scenery near 3 small lakes full of trout. We left our kayak on Trumbull lake unattended for a week. We felt very safe.

The restrooms are vault, and cleaned twice daily!

Caution, the "drinking" water was yellowish/brown. Probably sourced from the lake nearby. We used it to…

Secluded Campground Close Enough to Yosemite

This campground is fantastic! Sure, you’re about an hour’s drive (with some entry station traffic) to Yosemite’s Tioga wilderness and Valley attractions, but driving three miles down the access road to the campground just adds to how special this place is.

It’s secluded, away from road noise…

  • View from road.  One of the creek trails is directly left of this site, going downhill.

Natural swimming pools

Camped here a few times years ago. The creek is cold, but the rock formations create natural pools great for swimming. It a popular spot and fills up fast.
