  1. First come, first serve
    No showers on site
    Bathrooms and water spigots available
    $30 National Park entry fee
    $18 per night camp fee ( cash, check, or card)

    We stayed Wednesday, June 21- Friday, June 23

    Favorite Site #s:
    1 (off the road)
    6 (shade)
    17 ( where we stayed w/very large bolder/good shade)
    39 (off the road)
    57 (trees)
    40 ( large w/rocks and trees)
    69 (large)
    83 (large/not alot of shade though)
    Ranger staff camps near 90-110

    In order to get a site, go to main bathroom area and pick up yellow envelope/slip. Place money in envelope with your info and drop in box. Tear off slip and hang on camp site post.

    You can tell how long  someone is going to stay and when they are going to leave by looking at the yellow slips on the site posts.

    Pine cones make good kindling and can be found throughout the park

    Bring canopy because shade moves and can be scarce

    General Grant tree is in walking distance. Trail in campsite leads you straight to it.

    No showers. Closest showers are at John Muir lodge. Showers are open 9-5:30. Need cash to purchase coins for showers.

    Visitor’s center is very helpful and there is a small gift shop, museum, market, and a food court that is going to open soon.

    Panaramic Point was worth driving up the small country road to get to. After looking at the view continue to a 2 mile hike which is doable pre altitude adjustment.

    We used 3 gallons of water over 48 hours.

    People tended to leave wednesday, friday, and sunday (good days to come) make sure you get to campground EARLY if you want a good site. We recommend around 10 a.m. because checkout is at noon. Drive around to see who is packing up and make sure to stay near the site until it is free. People can get rather territoral when it came to choosing sites (it is first come first serve)

    As we left we saw a large line to get into the national park. It must have been at least an hour and a half wait. If you go during the weekend  be prepared for that.

      Thank you for this great info. I’ve camped at Lodgepole over the past few years but haven’t been able to book a site for the last two years and wasn’t sure how the first come first serve sites would work. Your information is very helpful. I also read this year that the Grant Grove showers are no longer available, but haven’t been able to confirm that.
