We were lucky enough to get a large shaded spot right next to the river. It was a very warm week sober were in the river every day and found some really nice swimming holes. of course going in August when the Merced is gentle makes this possible so be careful before jumping in earlier in the season!
The Rangers were attentive and friendly. My daughter and I enjoyed the coffee/hot chocolate morning chat.
The first thing that happened however was pretty traunatic and not uncommon for the region so be careful... As we were unpacking we happened to be standing upon a Yellow Jacket (also known as Meat Bee) nest at the base of a small tree. My son and nephew were bitten numerous times. Luckily they both rebounded quickly and the Rangers came and sprayed withing hours. It's an issue at a few sites so keep your eyes open before you settle in!
Some folks have complained about the facilities but my take is you know it going in... No showers... Bathrooms are serviceable and were cleaned daily... But it really is a beautiful campground and ha less of a manic and crowded feel than the Valley sites.
