The Willow Placer Campground is strategically placed on the Merced River. There is a host of activities to enjoy and fresh mountain air to breathe.

Willow Placer Campground is conveniently near to Yosemite's Wawona entrance, Mono Hot Springs, and a wide trail system in Sierra National Forest.

The campground is open year round, and operates on a first-come first-serve basis. The campground is owned by Bureau of Land Management. There is a $10/night fee. The maximum group size is 8. Each camp site is equipped with a grill and a picnic table. The campsite is ADA accessible. There are vault toilets, but the campground does not offer a potable water source. The closest water is near Briceburg Bridge. Watch for rattlesnakes and poison oak!
