The vibe at Dry Gulch Campground
Drop some Dry Gulch Campground knowledge on us.
We had a great 4 night Easter weekend camp in 2016. The site is really nice, clean and well kept. The camp host Kelly was very friendly and helpful. We read the reviews on Yelp. Did not have Mosquito problems (maybe to early in the year;end of March) or other issues. The sites 1 and 4 are very secluded. Far enough from other campers. 3&4 are kind of together but with enough room in between. The camp sites are right next to Merced River so you have the white water noise all the time. The street to Yosemite is on the other side of the river, due to the white water sounds we did not really hear cars. We where not disturbed. Worst case bring ear plugs if you want to avoid nature sounds. Will come again.

This is one of the coolest campgrounds around. You'd never know it existed if you were driving along the highway without a reservation. It has 4 tent spots so you know you're not going to be bombarded with people. The sites come with a tent spot, picnic table, fire pit and a food locker. The host is a great girl and she's got food for sale and knows the land well! You'll want site 1. While all are right on the Merced, this one has the most incredible rock formation that sits over the water -- the perfect place for a glass of wine, watching sunsets or contemplation. Dog friendly but as always, watch for wildlife! I will definitely be back!
