Camp at Nelder Grove Campground in Sierra National Forest
Rate this Adventure Yosemite › Nelder Grove Campground
Added by Matt Purciel
Camp in a beautiful forest with sequoias, pines and dogwoods situated next to a beautiful creek. Nelder Grove of Giant Sequoias, is a great side trip to the much more heavily visited Mariposa Grove in Yosemite.
Sites are located along Willow Creek with plenty of shape. Right out of the campground you can hike nearby Bull Buck Trail and discover the giant sequoia trees. This is a first-come first-serve campground so arrive early.
