Let me start by saying it was worth driving six and a half hours to get here. We loved everything from the,isolated campgrounds,the off road trails to test our 4x4 trucks and how our dogs were free to explore with us. There is plenty of wood for your fires, shaded hiking when the sun was out and did I mention the whiskey falls? Beautiful!! Hike past it for an even more beautiful sight to behold. Bass lake is close by as well so you can take a dip to rinse off all the dust you kick up. Yosemite is nice but I prefer less people with a lot of activities.
