Old Yosemite Base Camp Reviews & Ratings
Mmm . Q .bq l NM.s. . .un .. Mmm no g .. .m.
Very nice area. It was hard for me at first but the entrance is spotted via a dumpster and 2 portapotties. Afterwards, it's a uphill path to some really appealing camp spots. Better off going with a 4 by 4 or at least park your car at the foot of the hill and carry your things up to whatever spot you reserved. My first camping experience was quite something and this place gave me a positive impression. Open and with just the right amount of space, I only wished that I had come here with others. . Very clean area, I only wished that there was someone that I could experience with as I wanted to get my feet wet and see if I liked camping or not. Also while there was no bear box/food storage, i simply placed my items in a cooler and placed it in my car. No issues whatsoever~
This place is amazing and quiet private campground. You must go through hipcamp to reserve. You also need an AWD or 4x4. I had an AWD and easy for dry dusty summer months but if there is rain and mud I would say you need a 4x4. And the option to park at entrance and walk up? Good luck especially if you are used to glamping and with kids. It is bare bones campsite but with amazing fire rings and bbq grills that sit over it. Bring your own water, bring yellow jacket traps, and now they have trash bins but gets over flow quickly. The odd houses are cleaner than most street fair ones. I didn’t find the showed at Bass Lake but did find them at Yosemite Valley which is an easy day drive in and you drive through Tunnel View and past Glacier Point. We had site 3 which had the most shade during the day. You are secluded which is nice.
Overpriced. Poorly laid out, bug infested. Much better campsites around.
Hard to find.
