While Yosemite National Park campgrounds are the most famous (and most crowded), there are many wonderful campgrounds in the surrounding Gold Country. We like these facilities because they not only offer access to Yosemite but are the most convenient to a myriad of Gold Country adventures/activities.
We provide links to our favorites right here. Each contains plenty of pictures and lots of user-friendly information.
