I have a reserved spot for one night. One of the reviewers left a message 4 years ago that there were some walk up spots. Does anyone know if that is still true? Thanks! Rich

We've been camping at Dimond O for about 15 years. It's easily accessible, small, fairly quiet, and just an all around great place to get away from it all. It's not far from Yosemite, so day trips are easy. But it's a good place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the valley. The camp host is very helpful and knowledgeable. If there's no reservations available, there are several sites set up for walkups.
