Welcome to Yosemite's Colfax Spring! Home to a basecamp for river rafting trips during the summertime, we are located 15 minutes driving distance to the entrance to Yosemite National Park. If you are staying with us between May - September and want to come rafting, ask us about our river trips! Our camp sits on a ridge with views down into the Tuolumne River Canyon. The Tuolumne River begins at 13,000 feet of elevation in the High Country of Tuolumne Meadows and provides drinking water for over 2.7 million people in San Francisco. With cedar and pine trees, manzanita bushes, and wildflowers in the spring, enjoy the Sierras' flora and fauna. Our family has been operating our river rafting company for over 50 years, the last 11 of those years being here at Colfax Spring. Conveniently located off Highway 120, we are in close proximity to swimming holes, hikes, and more. Enjoy the privacy of our campsite and getting world-class views to yourself, with all of the amenities (flushing toilets, wi-fi, showers.) Make sure to check the Yosemite National Park website for information about reservations to visit the park!

(9) Tenaya Camp
Great option near Yosemite
This was an excellent find near to Yosemite. Great views of the area and a good spot for night-time photography. I visited in May and several hours after sunset the Milky Way was visible. It is wide open so if you visit during a rainy/stormy time I imagine a stay here might be miserable, but with good weather it is a great option. I did not see places for hammocks so plan for tent or car camping. Access to indoor bathrooms and showers was a huge perk and made the higher price more justifiable. They were the nicest and cleanest bathrooms/showers I've ever seen outside of a home or hotel (kudos to the employee I saw cleaning them). The road to the upper spots is no issue if you have AWD or 4WD but small 2-wheel vehicles may have trouble. They provide potable water near each site and there is hose access by the bathrooms if needed.
