Peaceful

This place was beautiful. Make sure to go all the way down the road. I thought the first road on the right was it but it looks like they do controlled burning over there? When you see the gate head towards it and you'll see the road on the left. There's no bathroom but if you head to the park entrance I found one on right once you pass the entrance. Happy camping!

Closed as of 9/15

This area is closed and barred by a large metal gate as of 9/15, presumably because of fire danger. Several other spots nearby are also closed for fire danger, so if you're looking in this area, look elsewhere!

3 minutes outside of the park.

I loved this spot. Stayed for several days while I waited for my park reservation date. Several porta potties, emptied/cleaned weekly by a guy with an adorable little dog. There’s a horse trail club that is through almost every day cleaning up the trail. They do a lot of work and you can definitely tell. Not much shade in the lot but there’s another shady spot big enough for multiple groups just before the lot area. Didn’t like how many people went driving off into the trees down the trail and just set up camp wherever. There’s plenty of room in designated spots so really no excuse for that. Saw woodpeckers, bees, wasps, ants, jumping spiders, owls, crows, and a deer just wandered in one afternoon.

Nice spot with bathrooms and a dumpster!

We arrived at 9:30pm and there were very few others in the huge parking lot. There were good tent areas in some of the woods near the lot

Great place outside of Yosemite

We visited Yosemite for 5 days in late April, and this was our go-to camping area. It's right outside of the south gate, so even though it's a bit of a drive to the valley, it's hard to get much closer without staying in the valley itself. There are tons of spots for camping, and everyone we talked to was super nice. If you're planning on visiting in the winter or early spring, be aware that a sign on the road leading up to this area says "chains required - no exceptions." There wasn't any chance of snow while we were there, but I imagine that if there's a chance of snow, you'll want to make sure you have tire chains.

Close to Yosemite, very popular

This is basically a trailhead parking lot but isn’t hard to get to and is close to the park. Got there around 10:3PM and it was quite full on a Friday night. People were generally quiet and it was generally clean. Picture is from the morning once most people had left. Overall a good place for an overnight - stars were beautiful!

Good safe site

It's basically a big parking lot where a lot of other campers stay. Came on a weekday and lots of free spots. There's only about 3 spots that are more private in the woods a bit. No more porta potties, but there is a bear-proof dumpster. Beautiful, feels safe, and just outside of Yosemite. Excellent, fast Verizon internet. No water, no toilets.

Snow play area

The tiniest sledding hill I have ever seen😂 but was a nice big lot with Port-a-johns and dumpster. Without the moon this spot is completely dark! The road is pretty tight getting up but flat. The plow did one pass so not much room with a 2 foot ice wall

Great for a free overnight

Stayed for 4th of July. Pretty full, but enough spots left to accommodate everybody.
