Great location, very close the park. The river was beautiful. We weren’t lucky enough to catch anything but our neighbors caught three trout. We happened to be there for Cinco De Mayo and they had a cute party with a food truck (it was yummy) and a piñata for the kids. We had a great week here and Yosemite is epic!!!
It was our first time camping and had no clue what we were doing. Many people around helped us out and access to a variety of trails, lodging, resources around
Hot showers, no burn-ban, and they have yurts! Cell connection is not a thing there.
I recently stayed at Yosemite Lakes Park Campground with a number of colleagues of mine and had an amazing time! Although we spent most of our time in Yosemite Valley, hiking and exploring, the drive into the valley was not too long and quite a pleasant one to say the least. Yosemite Lakes Park Campground is tucked in nicely in the surrounding wilderness and has a very family friendly vibe with plenty of amenities. There may not be a pool but the river has several areas that are great for wading about.
Although there could have been better wifi, like most campgrounds, it's almost a blessing in disguise to unplug and live in the moment.
