Yosemite Creek Campground Bridge Rebuilt – Offers More Campsites

In Camping, Lodging, News

In January 1997, Yosemite experienced a major flood, which severely impacted the entire park washing out the road and destroying many of the campgrounds in Yosemite Valley. It also demolished the bridge that connected the two camping sections of the Yosemite Creek Campground, resulting in the closure of the back section. Now, after 13 years, the National Park Service has rebuilt the bridge and opened up the back section to camping once again offering visitors an additional camping sites to choose from.

If you’re interested in camping at Yosemite Creek Campground, it’s a first-come, first-served campground located off the Tioga Road (Highway 120) about one hour north of Yosemite Valley. The campground is very rustic with no access for trailers or RV’s (perfect if you’re looking to escape the noise of generators running all the time) with only creek water that must be boiled before drinking.

Each campsite contains a fire ring, picnic table, and food locker. Cost is $10 per night.
