Beasore Meadows Campground
We had to vacate our campsite at the Wawona Campground Wednesday morning. The campground is located within Yosemite National Park, but it was only available for two nights.
Our search for another campsite on Tuesday took us through the Sierra National Forest on California Highway 41, south of Yosemite National Park. We inspected two free campsites (dispersed camping) on Jackson Road and other fee-based campsites on Sky Ranch Road. Both roads, at some point, turn into quite rough dirt roads, but navigable with a two-wheel drive vehicle.
After discovering a few camping solutions, we were still not satisfied with our options. We consulted our Allstays Camp and RV smartphone app. We discovered Beasore Meadows, a private camping resort located within the Sierra National Forest at an elevation of 6700 feet. We called the owner and were told to select a campsite near a creek that runs through the property. The campsite fee would be $5.00 per night. Sold! This morning we set up our campsite by the spring-fed creek.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
