“Great night camping in Yosemite ”

Reviewed Jul 14, 2018

Overall Rating

We really enjoyed our night at Crane Flat! This campsite is a very basic site with no electricity hookups or showers, but it was in a good location and had bathrooms/sinks. We went on a bear walk at night with a ranger which was really fun. Our campsite was not completely flat but had a patch of land that we were able to park our van o... more

“The best campground in Yosemite for RVs, but a pretty bad campground objectively”

Reviewed Jul 21, 2017

Overall Rating

This is the best RV campground for Yosemite National Park. But the park is badly run and arduous for visitors and the campground is no exception: The vibe seems to be that Bay Area city folk are using the campground like a city park, instead of a national park. Think loud yelling kids, unmonitored by adults, roaring campfires near... more

“Typical national park camping”

Reviewed May 28, 2017

Overall Rating

Stayed here for four nights, starting Oct 4th, in a Airstream International 23D. The Good - Decent location essentially halfway between the vast meadows of Tuolumne and the glacial valley of Yosemite. - Very, very quiet during the day when folks are hiking. We tend to hike early in the morning and late in the evening to avoid the ... more

“Very disappointing”

Reviewed Sep 26, 2016

Overall Rating

It was our fault for not making reservations earlier but ultimately that may not have made much difference. (*= more info in the blurbs below) The plusses for Crane Flat are that : it is about equidistance from the 3 places we wanted to see-Yosemite Valley, Tuolumne Meadows and Glacier Point It is near a gas station and small store... more

“Spacious for Yosemite”

Reviewed Oct 08, 2015

Overall Rating

This is a great location for Tioga Rd activities in Yosemite NP. There is more privacy than on the valley floor. Our spot required a stabilizing/leveling miracle but my husband pronounced it the best spot for our solar panels (they recharged to from 86 to 100% each day). Apparently there are more level spots in the park (especially ... more
