“A gem in Yosemite!”
My husband and I camped here on a Tuesday night mid-September. We had first tried to find a spot in Yosemite Valley but everything was full before 10am. We arrived at Tamarack Flat at 11:30am and were happy to find a spot. We chose site #28 as it was large and offered more privacy than others. We definitely recommend site #28 whether you’re tent camping, SUV camping or in a RV. Otherwise check out the first ones on the left as you come in as those looked more secluded as well. Each site offers a picnic table, fire ring and bear box. Bear box use is required for any food and scented toiletry items. This is a first come first served campground but our understand is it can fill up fast at peak times. RVs are not recommended as the road is only one vehicle wide and has sharp curves. Small RVs seem to make it down ok. The road looks recently paved so it’s super smooth. This campground is definitely worth the 3 mile drive off the main road. Vault toilets are available. No AT&T cell service. We loved this peaceful and quiet campground! And it’s less than half the price of the campgrounds in the valley.
Hannah would stay here again
