Fantastic service and incomparable atmosphere
We spent 5 days there during spring break and had a wonderful time! We had vista cabin by the pond and the boys loved watching the (huge!) frogs and tadpoles. They spent an hour at least at the pool and even met friends who they hung out with during the week! How nice is that? Adults all say hello and how are you when they walk by. That’s the warm and friendly vibe we loved about Autocamp.
The clubhouse provided the modern convenience when we needed it in the natural, rustic setting! The cabin was sleek and clean, stocked with everything we needed to cook, eat, clean, bundle up and wash up. We enjoyed nightly s’mores with our own cabin fireplace and cooked with our own grill by the pond — didn’t feel at risk in anyway during a pandemic.
The service was impeccable. They answered your text questions and requests promptly and were always helpful when we needed help. I love the staff! We will definitely book another Autocamp stay.
Location is 8 minutes from Mariposa and about 45 from Yosemite entrance but not in anyway inconvenient. We got around easily with our car without delays and were relieved we didn’t stay within Yosemite and had more freedom to eat and explore Mariposa.
One improvement I’d suggest is the shower area can use a little more bleach but it’s not bad. Also, just a wish list: Stock the pond with some fish and enforce a catch and release policy! That’s be so fun! My kids were practicing their casting but with no fish to catch. Don’t worry, we didn’t harm any frogs!

Beautiful location for relaxing and amazing service
Highly recommend Autocamp Yosemite. Conveniently located to Yosemite with access to YARTS transportation. We loved our stay! The airstream was very clean, and had modern decor and modern technology access. The staff was simply amazing. They were always attentive and were very helpful. I didn’t catch the person’s name that checked us in, but she was so nice and we thank her for her attention to service. The shower had great water pressure and we loved the toiletries. I wish I had that mattress at home! So cozy. We felt very safe with the COVID procedures and the quality of cleaning. The fire pits set throughout the property set the perfect mood and we enjoyed the clubhouse area. All staff members were very friendly! We hope to visit again soon!

Loved our stay but heater broke
We went to autocamp for the first time (wanted a quick getaway that was also social distancing!). The place is very easy to get to, super cute, and well organized. We arrived an hour earlier and they let us check in. Although the clubhouse was closed, we went in to check in and use the bathroom.
One of my favorite things is that before the stay, we communicated via text (asking about snow chains, yosemite park reservations, etc). It was so convenient!
While we were cooking on the campfire, we noticed our microwave was not working. We texted them and they had someone come out right away. They fixed it but when we tried again, it didn’t work so we ended up just heating the food on the grill.
The only con was that the heater stopped working in the middle of the night. It was working well all day, but while we were sleeping, it stopped and wouldn’t turn back on. We didn’t want to have to have someone come out cause it was late and we were leaving early in the morning anyway, so we just bundled up. Other than the heater issue, everything was great!

Best place ever!!
Wow where do I begin! First off ...stay here!!! And I’ll tell you why,
Nothing is more fun than staying in an airstream where you have the luxury of a hotel room but the rustic outdoors at your doorstep! I fell in love with waking up and sitting outside by the lake with my coffee in hand getting breakfast ready over our outdoor fire pit! Then we would go hiking for the day and come back to sip wine and cook dinner again over the fire! Loved it!! The airstreams are very clean and had all the amenities that you might need, anything else can easily be purchased from the clubhouse!
The staff is the next reason. They are easily available by text and are so nice!! I re-injured a college knee injury and was hobbling around and the staff did all they could to help and make sure we had everything we needed.
Lastly is the location, only about an hour from Yosemite valley and wawona trails! It is also only about 10 minutes from Mariposa which had lots of cute stores and places to eat (if you’re not feeling like cooking!)
Thank you so much to everyone there who made our stay the best it could be considering the Covid shutdowns. I definitely want to return post shut down and maybe in the summer to enjoy that beautiful pool!!

Amazing Glamping Trip!
During Thanksgiving, we were prepared to go to Mexico, but with the pandemic decided to stay home and opt for a more natural and safer experience. We are so happy that we made that decision. It is a gorgeous and beautiful place. The location was well thought out and we had a great time.
If you are up for the camping experience, but want to have a bit of a more hybrid experience, I would highly suggest going to Autocamp. The site is gorgeous and a lot of detail went into creating this magical place. When you enter into the lobby, Kristen and Jennifer were welcoming. It is true that the first people that you see at a company are the most important and that was true for us. They were very hospitable and shared all the amenities with us. We learned about using good wood, the food (the macaroni and cheese is authentic with real cheese), and how each Airstream comes with amenities like a seasoned cast iron grill.
I read a bunch of reviews and came prepared. It is like camping, but with more luxuries like a great heater, luxurious bathroom, fantastic toiletries and individual fire pits. I also brought Wagogi Korean bbq, a propane burner, drinks, and breakfast makings. We also got a sack lunch at the Yosemite Bug, which was a super hearty sandwich in a brown paper bag. We wanted to go to dinner there, but were not able to make it. It is fabulous!
We stayed for two nights and had a blast! We made s’mores and brought our own metal skewers (also get the jumbo marshmallows from Vons), and tried to even ride the complimentary bicycles (too big for kids less than 12).
We also did a tour with YExplore, which was amazing. John was a great guide and see my review there.
In this pandemic, we are thankful. We are lucky to have gotten away and tried something new. It was a great bonding experience.
Thank you to Jennifer and Kristen for remembering our names, being kind and so hospitable. It is those little things that matter the most.
