Hodgdon Meadow Campground is conveniently located along the Big Oak Flat Road at the Big Oak Flat Entrance. At an elevation of 4,900 feet (1,219 m), the campground is located along the western edge of the park, 25 miles and approximately 45 minutes from Yosemite Valley.

There is a gas station and minimal convenience items located nearby at Crane Flat. Trailheads for both the Merced Grove and Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias are located within a short drive of the campground.

Typically reservations are required from early April to early October for Hodgdon Meadow. During the rest of the year, the entire campground (other than the group sites) are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Be aware that nearly all campground reservations in Yosemite for the months of May through September and for some other weekends are filled the first day they become available, usually within seconds or minutes after 7 am Pacific time.

Just as in the Big Sur area, California’s record setting storms have been hard on portions of the Yosemite Region. While Hwy. 140 (El Portal Road) and Hwy. 41 (Wawona Road) remain open and clear for all vehicular traffic (always look out for rocks and debris on the roadway), there are still issues on Hwy. 120 as of the end of March. more »

Before you bring your dog to Yosemite National Park, read up on the rules so you won't be disappointed. While access to trails is restricted (see where you can hike below), there's still lots of scenery that can be enjoyed with your dog, especially in the spring when the waterfalls are running at maximum flow. more »
