Hodgdon Meadow Campground is located really close to the Big Oak Flat Entrance of Yosemite National Park. This campground is about 45 minutes northwest of Yosemite Valley.
If you are looking to stay outside of the valley and surrounded by big trees this is a great campground for you!
This campground offers individual and group sites close to highway 120. When we visited the campground it was relatively quiet and very peaceful. This would be a great campground if you are looking to be in the park but not in the hustle and bustle of Yosemite Valley.
You will be close to the road to Tuolumne Meadows, horseback riding areas, and other popular activities within the park without having to be in the traffic of Yosemite Valley.
Check out all of the Yosemite Camping options! There are 13 campgrounds within Yosemite National Park!
Four of the campgrounds are in Yosemite Valley, five of them are along the Tioga Pass and Tuolumne Meadows which are open seasonally, the rest are found along Highways 120 and 140.
