We stayed here back in 2011 and nothing much has changed since then. This is a basic USFS campground. The layout is rather confusing and the roads through the campground wind around in an unpredictable way. There are plenty of sites to choose from, whether you want to be down near the creek, out in the open or tucked into a grove of little aspen trees. The beauty of this campground is its proximity to Yosemite National Park and Mono Lake. There is one vault toilet facility (not being kept very clean on our latest visit). There are no hook-ups and no dump station. It now costs $10 to dump at the gas station in Lee Vining. Make sure you come with your own supply of potable water as there is no water available in the campground. We camped at Lower Lee Vining Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The drive up to Yosemite via Tioga Pass (9,450 ft.) is not to be missed! Mono Lake is well worth a day trip too.

A forest service campground, so no services. We loved it. Could hear Lee Vining Creek rushing over the rocks. Short walk to the creek. Site 1 (we had this one) is a great pull-through with lots of privacy. Close to town and close to Yosemite National Park, though not the valley, and Mono Lake. We paid $7.00 with a Golden Age card. Would most definitely stay here again. Very relaxing. We camped at Lower Lee Vining Campground in a Motorhome.

Nicely treed and next to a small stream, but no water. Permanent vault toilet was clean, but need a flashlight. Porta potties not so nice, but closer to most sites since the campground is along a linear arrangement. Campground sign is easy to miss and the name of the campground is not visible from the road. Public water is along hwy 120 before the campground turnoff. Be sure to try out the gourmet fare at the Mobil station at the corner of Hwy 395 and 120. The Whoa Nellie Deli was great enough for us to return twice. Good place to check out Mono Lake and the Tioga Pass. We camped at Lower Lee Vining Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at this county campground while visiting Yosemite National Park. This campground, as well as several other county run campgrounds along Highway 120, makes a good alternative to the campgrounds within the park which are often full and/or booked up months in advance. The campground is situated along Lee Vining Creek and far enough off the highway to be peaceful and quiet. This is a primitive campground with no hook ups, no running water, no flush toilets, etc. Generators are allowed during limited hours. There is no dump station, but you can dump your tanks at the gas station in Lee Vining for $5 or for free with a fill-up. The pit toilet in the campground was as clean as a pit toilet can be and even came outfitted with a magazine rack! The additional portal potties were in terrible shape. Bear boxes are provided at each campsite and the use of them is enforced. Leave no food or other smelly items in your vehicle unless you want to risk a fine and/or a wrecked vehicle! Our fee of $7 a night reflects the fact that we have a Golden Age pass. The regular fee is $14 a night. We'd stay here again. The drive up Highway 120 (also known as Tioga Pass) is beautiful! We camped at Lower Lee Vining Campground in a Travel Trailer.
