Not really big rig friendly, but you can get a few on the lower level. This park was put in long before slides so with 4 you will need to overhang into another space. There is an upper section but it is mostly permanents and would not attempt to go up there unless I had a very small RV. The lower level starts off narrow and at the end has room for about 4 larger rigs if you take 2 spaces. Wi-Fi was not working and the water pressure is really low (25lbs), only saw 30 AMP service at the boxes. One of the local members said they were looking at improvements so made the case for re-doing the lower section to be more big rig friendly and adding a dump station (there is no dump station today). - sheltieRV

The other reviews pretty much summed this place up. I just want to add that there is a good strong free wifi signal (I'm using to write this review) available from the Elks Club. The water tastes pretty bad, if you don't have a good filter system, bring bottled water. We called ahead of time to see if space was available and received a return call a short time later. Host said," he never saw the place completely full." Passport America price for non-members is $15.00 a night.. - john5079

General info: This is a no-frills location to camp. It really is no more than a dirt/gravel lot with electricity and water hook-ups (no sewer or dump available on site). No on-site staff, so the payment is do it yourself style by placing a check for the correct amount into an envelope provide where you write your personal info, as well as your vehicle(s) and dates of stay. You then drop the envelope down a mail slot.
The Good: There are large trees nearby that provide some shade. It is very close to the entrance to Yosemite, off of hwy 41. It feels secluded and lonely, but it's well lit. Sites have available wood picnic tables. Checkout time is a generous 6pm!
The Bad: Completely dirt/gravel, so expect some dust in summer or mud during rain/snow season. Poor weed removal maintenance. Upper level has low hanging oak branches, which would probably damage taller rigs. Lower level is fine and easy to maneuver. 30 amp only. Low water pressure. No amenities (cable TV, pool, etc.
If we were going back to Yosemite, we would probably camp here again. It's worth the money for no frills when compared to other parks on our trip. - ADMD

Everything was great! When we arrived we were given the basic rules of the campground and we asked questions all of which were answered by our awesome camp host. The place was clean, quiet and very kid friendly.. Our entire group had a lot of fun. We will continue to make Summerdale a family tradition. - Boozam

Summerdale Campground is located in the Sierra National Forest one and a half mile south of Yosemite National Park entrance on Hwy 41. The CG is a single loop around a grassy meadow full of wildflowers and shade for most sites is provided by Cedar, Fir and Cottonwood trees. This campground offers good fishing and cool summertime temperatures. I gave it a 7 rating not because of facilities but because of the setting and site size. All sites have tables, fire rings and grills. About half the sites are 20-footers with the balance being 30 and 40-foot pads. The campground loop is narrow and might be difficult to negotiate for a very long trailer. Motorhomes should disconnect their toads when checking in. The camp host isn't real friendly and is hardly ever around so if you have a need get to him when you see him. Water bibs (with threads) are scattered throughout the loop. Vault toilets. No showers or dump station. The sites are rustic and very pretty and could be a good option for Yosemite NP visitors who don't have a reservation in the Park. Reservations can be made between Memorial Day and Sept 30 but not for a specific site number. This CG qualifies those with a senior discount pass for a $10 rate. - exportman

Stayed here for a week visiting family. RV sites are in rear of mobile home park, visually might not be the best. Lived here for most of my life and maybe understand the area more. Very quiet, no safety concerns. The couple that runs office are very nice. Price reflects weekly rate of $185. This is a cash only place, and office does smell like smoke. Be aware that restroom facility is older, maybe clean not appealing. Used shower in rv. All said nice stay, would use again because of its proximity to Madera. - Randoni

Good place to stay a day or two. 50 amps must use higher priced pull through. Older park with some junky perminant guests. - Journey39k

Great NPS campground in the park about 45 minutes from Yosemite Valley. Situated by a nice river (not a lot of water int he fall), the sites are fairly roomy. It's much easier to get reservations here during the season. The price drops to $18 a night and is first come first served after 10/15. - Ugly SAM

This is a nice place to stay outside the valley. Less than a mile away is a hotel where you can have a drink and listen to an awesome piano player most nights. It's not not super close to all the regular tourist things. Not the best place to stay during busy times. It's right by the river. - Ugly SAM

Lovely campground right on the river. Just a 30 minute drive to the valley. There is a pretty busy road right above the campground. The noise wasn't too bad, but it made walking anywhere a little hazardouse. No hiking trails right from the campsite, you pretty much need to drive everywhere. The sites are very small and we didn't have much of a "patio" area to set up on, had to walk around the opposite side to get to our fire pit and you share a common area. Overall, nice and quite and away from the crowds of the valley. No hookups and only port-a-potties but they were clean. - KShipps

Campground, is in the Sierra National Forest, on Bass Lake, We only stayed here because we couldn't get a site IN Yosemite
While we made a reservation on Recreation.gov, we checked in to find that the site we had reserved on line, was already occupied and we possibly would not fit into anyways. We were told to go in & find a site, then come back to register, this actually turned out much better for us. Sites are fully wooded with paved parking pads, there are no hookups, but there is a dump station & water fill.
Our site was sort of level, and narrow, strangely laid out as there was a drop off on one side and the road on the other side, the picnic table and fire ring were near the front of the site. Site was well separated from each other.
Bathrooms with flush toilets were clean, but there are no showers.
The campground is laid out on a side hill withing walking distance from the Lake.
Due to the driving distance to Yosemite, I doubt we would stay here again. - bukhrn

Nice state campground off Bass Lake. Walking distance to lake from sites and nearby Forks store and restaurant. Clean site and flush toilets. No showers. Only downside is there are limited water faucets accessible and no hookups. Stayed in sites 20 and 21 and were great for 2 families and secluded. Would stay here again. Cell phone reception was pretty decent. - JLBL

There are no signs telling you where to camp We we're lucky to see some other campers already set up so we found our way in. We arrived after 5 and there wasn't anyone on duty The place is a wide open grass area with some trees. Hook ups are scattered around with no site numbers. Apparently you can camp on the grass with out hook ups also. It's a great place to send the night while traveling the Central Valley - Grovester

We wanted to find a stop north of Bakersfield when leaving California. Found this place online decided to give it a go. It is very close to highway 99 but highway noise is minimal. All of the sites are on grass and some sites have sewer and 50 amp. We had choice of sites as there is only one other camper in the park. The facility is nice a bit of a challenge to find if you don't have directions. They have washrooms but need a code which we didn't get. There also appears to be Wifi but again we didn't get the code, but were able to us Lowe's. We certainly will stay again. - mamestra

Park is being worked on. Many trees removed and new vegitatian planted. The park is in good overall shape. Interior roads are paved and pretty well marked. The park is on a hill side and the interior roads are steep. If you are in the winter season: a small snowfall and you will be stuck! The park is quiet and does not have a view or easy lake access. Park wifi was junk. Verizon cell 3 bars and ok. Easy satellite set up. - BrianStacifulltimers

Nice wooded park. There are pull-throughs if you desire easy access, back-ins amongst the trees if you are looking for a more rustic experience. All hook-ups worked well, including cable tv. Clean but small swimming pool, clubhouse, and kids game rooms. Park offers some meals (extra cost but very reasonable) during busy times. Good wifi in certain places within the park, Verizon cell service fair. Certainly not the parks fault, but they did have to cut down a number of dead trees due to the drought years which just ended. - morganhillers1

This is an amazing park! We stayed in a 3 bedroom cabin with ALL the amenities (kitchen, living room, dining room, washer/dryer, cable tv, 2 bathrooms (including a garden tub which my wife loved), and a fenced yard!) Staff was friendly and welcoming. Clubhouse(s) were warm and inviting (the kid's clubhouse kept the garndkids busy for hours! Roads are narrow but show me mountains that don't have narrow winding roads...it adds to the charm (you just have to know how to drive and drive for your conditions)! RV sites seem very easy to get into as the roads around them are very wide with plenty of room to back in or pull through. I have a 40' motorhome and would not hesitate to bring it next time (and I DEFINITELY will come back!) The RV sites are gravel but that doesn't bother me...I AM camping after all...if I wanted a concrete pad and manicured lawns I would stay @ home. I agree the speed bumps are big but they are there to keep the speed down and everyone safe...they work! Unfortunately, the beetles have invaded millions of trees in the area (to no fault of any land owners) and hundreds of trees are lost daily. This is part of nature and more will grow in the place of those lost. This resort is better than staying in crowded Yosemite (which for us was only 1/2 hour drive in the snow!) I can't say enough about this place and am looking forward to making happy memories for my grandchildren here...I just wish I found it when my kids were little. - Camper Craig

Pretty dusty in July. We stayed in loop K with several friends and took up the whole loop. Several people had boats and the nearby parking lot worked out well. Slide your fifth wheel hitch before you turn off the main road and onto the K loop road. Not a sharp turn, but the incline will get you (I found out the hard way). Stay away from the swimming pond, I was told the water is pumped in at the beginning of summer and pretty much stays there all summer long. Watch for rattlesnakes, I did not see any, but they're around. If you don't want to tow your boat back to your site and can rent a slip at the marina for $20 or $30 a night. Don't forget to check out the enormous carp swimming around the marina near the hamburger stand. - tnhnunes

We camped here with about 10 other RVers over a 2 night period in June. We had f/h sites in the C Loop (C-14) which was up a steep hill and tight for some large rigs. Backing up was not easy, and some spots were hard to get into. The K Loop would be our first choice for f/h sites. This loop is also adjacent to the lagoon which is great for the kids. Being in the C loop, we had to drive to the lagoon, quite a trek if w/out vehicle. Of course the main attraction is the lake, just OK if you aren't going to use the lake. I would probably go to Horseshoe Bend (where we stayed last summer) again before back to Barrett Cover. It's much flatter, has a swimming lagoon and some beautiful spots overlooking the lake. - User325

Electric hook-up hardly worked, no sewer hookup despite having been told this was a full hookup site. Otherwise, nice area, some spots hard to get into for larger RVs. - morganhillers
