We recently camped in Tuolumne Meadows for the 1st time with our 2 year old and 8 year old and had a blast. The campground is outstanding,plenty of spaces and plenty of restrooms. No Showers though. The meadows are simply gorgeous and the surrounding area will blow your mind! There are rivers to play in and many hikes to choose... More

Got a last minute reservation via the online booking system, but only one night available in the C section. (Weekday in June) Very tight & crowded with other campers walking through our site to get to the toilet block. Our site had 2 picnic tables, was very shady. The stars at night were incredible. Everyone around us respected the quiet... More

We just spent 3 nights here last weekend and although I won't say I disliked it, I can't say I liked it either. The campground itself is set in the sheer beauty that is Tuolumne Meadows. However, if you're looking for more activities, my suggestion would be to stay closer to Yosemite Valley. Our campground was great (E11) but it... More

We spend one night there in June. Staff was very friendly. We had a nice spot with trees. At nighttimes we heard some animals and at daytime we even saw them just a few meters away from us. The bathroom facilities were quite a bit to walk in comparison to other camprounds in that area, but still ok. There is... More

We stayed here for 2 nights just after the Labor Day weekend. It was still very busy. We were in the H section which is nice and quiet, but the downside was that it was a long walk away from the river which is the spot you want to be in the later afternoons. Also, the bathroom facilities in this... More

The only real problem is that we didn't stay longer! Although we really needed to stay somewhere with a shower by that point so had to leave. The campground is great, everything you hope and expect from a National Park camground. We were right at the very far end and it didn't upset our stay at all. Toilets are clean... More

I stayed at this place whilst on a road trip across the country so it was hardly my first experience with campgrounds. Before that we stayed at 5 different campgrounds in various national parks so we knew the average standard and prices. There was so many things wrong with this one, that made it not worth the money at all.... More

I'd return in a heartbeat! Tuolumne Meadows is simply stunning: An alpine meadow surrounded by High Sierra Peaks a short distance from the very visible Sierra crestline. Trails go up, they go down, and a few let you walk for miles on essentially flat ground. Flat, though, doesn't mean boring. We took a day hike along the John Muir trail--about... More

The best part of the Tuolumne Meadows Campground is that it is located so close to the meadows, one of the most beautiful parts of Yosemite, that many people don't explore. The location makes watching sunset on the meadow and being able to walk back to your campsite. Given the altitude mornings can be a bit cold even in the... More

If you want to avoid the masses down in Yosemite Valley (as we did) the Tuolumne Meadows is your campground of choice. Spectacular surroundings (lakes, rocks, trails), nice spots under pine trees, interesting people. The only drawback is that it is quite full and busy in summertime.

“Get there early to put your name on the stand by list, Section "A" along the river is best”

“Visit the Yosemite National Park website MONTHS before you plan to go. There are detailed instructions on how and WHEN you can reserve a campsite. Yosemite campsites generally get fully booked within minutes of becoming available so plan ahead.”
