Exceeded expectations in every way
Excellent experience. Stayed 4 nights in a airstream with other family members in an adjacent tent. The club house is awesome. Pool is perfect. Camper and tent very clean on arrival. Bonfire area was perfect. One tip is bring a big cooler and food. Refrigerator is small and bonfire area has a grill so you will want to cook out. Staff very helpful and friendly. Do not hesitate to stay here.

Totally worth it
Second time visiting. The concept is great - the execution is what makes it. The airstreams are high end - great linens, fabulous lighting, Bluetooth sound, fire pit. Clubhouse is impeccable. Trying Bikes next time. The staff seals the deal - super friendly, and around for anything. All are great, but Rose stood out this time.
35 minutes to Yosemite gate, 12 minutes to town.

Our First visit to Autocamp
I was looking to stay in one Airstream for a long time and we finally decided to stay in Autocamp Yosemite while visiting South Lake Tahoe area.
You should consider that the place its not in Yosemite, it takes ~40min drive and the bus service was not available before May. I didn't like Mariposa (not good restaurants or shops)
Great experience for the kids, the airstream is very well equipped, nice spacious bathroom and bedroom.
We really enjoyed the outdoor seating and fire pit spending family time after a day in Yosemite park.
The staff is not very friendly specially in the morning (same person in front desk was in charge of taking breakfast orders).
The place needs more activities for kids and night activities around the club house fire pit to mingle with other guests.
Im not sure I would come back for the price/value to this one, we might try another Autocamp.

Dog friendly, comfortable and friendly accommodations
We chose to check out this Autocamp after reviews we had read online. It was our first time visiting Yosemite & absolutely loved our experience, many thanks to Autocamp! We brought our 2 yellow labs and stayed in one of the Vista Airstreams. We loved how we were tucked away and had our own fire pit and patio area. The accommodations were incredibly comfortable (the bed and bedding is DREAMY!!). We visited the first weekend of March so the evenings were a little chilly and it even snowed one night, but the heat inside our suite and outside at our own fire pit was phenomenal. We drove our Tesla up from south Orange County and loved the free Tesla charging. Our airstream had the perfect amount of items and storage space for our weekend. We didn’t bring any of our own food, but did take advantage of the free granola and coffee for breakfast, bought lunch from the General Store, and loved the BBQ kits we could buy in the store to grill over our little campfire!! The staff was oh so friendly and helpful. The main “lodge” is a great gathering area with live music and plenty of beverages for purchase and a warm fire inside and outside. We can’t wait to come back and visit again - seriously can’t wait!

Charming, with some watch-outs
We leave our first AutoCamp experience with fond memories and a wish it wasn't yet over, but also a few lingering things that take the shine off this experience.
Location is the biggest one. This is not Yosemite, this is Mariposa. The drive to Yosemite is an hour each way, meaning if you (like us) want two days in the park, that's four hours on the road in total.
Check out time is 10am. We weren't advised of this, there is nothing in the suite to suggest this, and when I called the front desk at 0930, no one answered the phone. Check out needs to be noon in this kind of destination. What made this even more peculiar was when we eventually got through to front desk (third attempt), our request for an extra hour wasn't granted - in a completely empty camp! For the next hour wandering around, we did not see another guest.
The pool was closed. A shame given how hot it was. There is no jacuzzi.
The $9 bags of wood are miserably stocked and run out very fast.
There was absolutely no vibe in the club house on either Friday or Saturday night. Most of the time it was empty. The indoor fire was not lit on Friday night. Some entertainment and effort in making this part of the experience would go a long way.
There was no operational info in the suite itself. Given the number of heating / cooling options, that would have been nice. At check in, we received no information, either. That was a shame... little did we know it was Firefall in the park. We missed it because no one mentioned it (until check out).
The suite bed had a decent bow in the middle which really impacted sleep.
Too critical? Think about the price. About a grand for two nights in an airstream that's right up against dozens of others lined up in a big row, next to a busy-ish road.
Now, the good - the design of the club house is brilliant. They have great beer on tap. Some of the grounds are nicely done. The suite itself, while not private, is thoughtfully put together and incredibly cute. I couldn't believe how amazing the bathroom / shower was. The suite is stocked with everything you need, even a microwave!
We might try another AutoCamp, it's a fantastic concept for a weekend, but wouldn't return to this one.
