My son and daughter-in-law are experienced campers but this was my first time tent camping. Somehow my son got a reservation just a week before we visited Aug. 3; probably a last-minute cancellation. Site 92 had a gentle slope for the tent and the campground host's trailer was just across the road, the bathrooms were close, and surrounding campers all were there to eat, sleep and get up early to explore the next day. That made for convenience and quiet. Birds, but no bears when we were there. It gets really cold at night, so plan for that. Weather sites for Yosemite don't specify where the temp data is taken, but it was allegedly 39 F. overnight. I would guess closer to 45 F. at Hodgdon. Very friendly hosts and fellow campers. Many children. Everyone was considerate of their neighbors and by 10:30 p.m., place was absolutely quiet. Nobody seems to mention it, but because of the fragrant conifers, the air smells wonderful all the time. Definitely would do it again.
