Cozy Cabin Retreat Near Yosemite
Located just 25-30 minutes from Yosemite’s entrance, this spot boasts a quaint lake nearby for a refreshing dip and several hiking trails. The cabin and bed are incredibly cozy and comfy—absolutely no complaints! We got to witness the deer grazing in the morning! Our host was wonderfully kind, offering plenty of tips for our first Yosemite adventure. He’s also a talented bear photographer! I highly recommend this place and can’t wait to return! 🐻✨

Bathrooms were a little gross and toilets looked really old. The water pumps at the camp sites were unusable.

Der Campground lebt von der Nähe zum Yosemite Park. Für alle, die keinenPlatz auf den Campgrounds im Park erhalten haben, kann dies eine Option sein. Allerdings hat der Platz mit den meisten Campingmoeglichkeiten keinen Schatten. Wenn man 10 $ extra zahlt, kann man einen Platz mit Wifi erhalten, der auch Schatten bietet. Dies ist dann naeher an den Toiletten und Hütten. Insgesamt 55 $ für einen Zeltplatz, der einige Investitionen benötigt, ist viel, aber alternativ los, wenn man nicht noch eine weite Anfahrt zum Park haben will. Personal freundlich Toiletten schon etwas ueberholungsbeduerftig Duschen heiß auch noch am späteren Abend Wir waren Ende September dort. Die Anzahl der Gäste war minimal.

Interesting stay
Overall, experience was 8/10. Great location, laundry room is a bit confusing.
