Tuolumne County, California

Camp at Tuolumne Meadows Campground

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

There's nothing quite like Yosemite high country--sprawling meadows, peaceful forest, and impressive mountain features make Tuolumne an incredible place to camp and hike.

Tuolumne Meadows is on Tioga road northeast of Yosemite Valley, at elevation 8,600 feet. Sites are available July-September at $26. Dogs are allowed but be sure to pack the leash!  More info: https://www.nps.gov/yose/plany...

Tuolumne Meadows seems very spread out, and it is, but this campground is the perfect spot for a basecamp (especially loops A&B): you're close to Tioga Road, so you can easily be in the meadows in a few minutes, and the walk to the Lembert Dome/ Glen Aulin/ Cathedral Lakes/ JMT trailheads are at most a 1 mile flat walk away, and the trail to Elizabeth Lake starts at the back of Loop B! Campers seem more relaxed and chill up here too, not as party-ready like in Yosemite Valley. Highly recommend spending time at Tuolumne Meadows!

Great camping location

this is a great location to camp in Yosemite. Its location makes a great base camp for exploring areas of Yosemite outside of the valley floor and there are a lot of outstanding hikes in the area.
