RV Campgrounds inside Yosemite National Park
« on: February 11, 2019, 10:49:34 AM »
Hi,

We will be traveling to Yosemite National Park this July and would like some recommendations as to what campgrounds inside the park?  I believe we will enter from the West side.  I have a Class A, 29 feet long, towing a small trailer with my trike on it.

I was thinking of going to Hodgdon Campground, but would like other suggestions also.

Thanks

Fred

There are only three campgrounds on the valley floor and those have very specific rules about how to  reserve a space.

The rest of the campgrounds are a very long way from the valley floor where all the attractions are. I suggest waiting on your computer at exactly 7 am on the day the reservation window opens and be aggressive to get a spot. Staying out of the valley is easier to get a reservation but much harder to get into the park.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

Have camped at Hogdon in years past. ~ Hilly terrain ~ Smallish campsites & we were in small tent trailer. Fairly long drive into the Valley.

Yup, I'd stay out in the vicinity of Groveland and drive to the Valley.  We stay at Pines campground, behind the Groveland ranger station, and it's only and hour's drive to the Valley.  Also close the the turnoff to Hetch-Hetchy Reservoir.  IMHO, almost as beautiful as the Valley.

We camped at Bass Lake near Oakhurst and it was about an hour's drive into the park.  There were a couple if campgrounds on the way into the park

Fish Camp was one.
