Located right on the Merced River on the eastern edge of the valley at about 4,000 feet of elevation, this campground is perfect if you want to fish or just explore along the banks and maybe wade a bit. The sound of the river is wonderful, too. Both tents and recreational vehicles are allowed here, but there are no RV hookups. Your site will have a firepit and water. Reservations are required. The maximum stay is seven days, and no pets are allowed. The campground is open April to October.
