Great experience!!! Love love love!!! Do it!!!
We stayed in a Summit Suite X and loved it!!! At check in you get a welcome drink (soda or beer). At your campsite, you have your own deck with a table and propane fire pit (I believe you only get this with the X suites). You also have your own grill if you decide to cook (with your stay they provide you with 1 fire starter kit but you can buy more in the lobby shop if needed. There is also a market nearby ~10 min away). I also loved the speakers that are installed in the ceilings (connect via Bluetooth or charging cord). They also have the most comfortable beds!! Perfect after a long day of hiking.
When booking you might see the same accommodation type but different pricing. It’s due to location on the property (near the clubhouse/with lake views, etc). (Ex: Classic X Suite is cheaper than the Summit X Suite- there are 3 summit x suites that are right along the pond. There are 2 classic x suites that are right next to the clubhouse, but not along the pond).
Just an FYI- if you are going to Yosemite, be prepared to drive about 40 minutes to the entrance and an additional 15-20 minutes if you are going to the visitors center.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Recommending to all our friends.

I LOVE this place. It is so comfortable, relaxing and BEAUTIFUL. The colors of the fall leaves really illuminate against the pond and the overall setting. Everyone that works there is so FRIENDLY, even when we were booking our rooms, the lady helping us Elaine Rice was so sweet and accommodating. It is a drive from the park entrance, but the drive is scenic and windy, so if you have a nice car to drive can be quite enjoyable. They are very dog friendly, and everyone seemed to love animals that works there. You can't leave your dogs in the autostream so we took them everywhere, and they were welcome everywhere on the property. Grilling outdoors is fun and easy. The wifi works great, but their television was spotty. Also, we got a room up in the mountains at first so the water pressure wasn't great. Luckily, they were able to accommodate us and moved us closer to the club house. Better water pressure, and TV signal. Also, you'd have to lug your things with a radioflyer cart, so try not to pack so much. Space is limited inside the autostream anyways. It was also inconvenient lugging our stuff uphill during when we checked into our first room. Other than that, the room was comfortable, and the bathrooms were great. Our dogs were happy, we were happy!

Takes Camping to a new level!
We loved this place and my husband hates camping! The airstreams were beautiful and well-designed and entirely comfortable. Thought it was great to be near town--restaurants and shops, though the Autocamp has a nice breakfast and it's heavenly to squeeze your own orange juice. Not a bad ride to Yosemite either. Staff very helpful--the main clubhouse with pool just lovely. Fun to have a fire the last night. This time of year is quiet especially the week-days.

When we got there, it was great...
This is a review of two halves.
First half - the booking process. I booked direct with the site a few months before our vacation. Being a prudent sort, I confirmed directly with Autocamp about six weeks before arrival. So far so good. A week before I was due to arrive I received an email from Autocamp apologising for a "computer glitch" causing double booking - hence they could not accommodate me. This was a challenge as I was coming from the UK and had a carefully planned, booked and confirmed schedule. After some frenetic email exchanges - and more than a little chasing from my side - Autocamp found me alternative accommodation. This was better than them simply washing their hands of me! - but it meant two hotels in two nights. It was also more expensive that what I had paid, and was not self catering - which was why I selected Autocamp. We did however get a complementary breakfast. Autocamp were apologetic and did help with new accommodation - we also got some treats and an upgrade when we eventually checked in.
Second part of the review. First point - the Autocamp site is rather a long way from Yosemite. The check in staff (Rochelle) were delightful - the site itself was modern and stylish. I could happily spent a lot longer there. We were lucky to stay in a summit site, which afforded a bit more space around the caravan. Some other areas looked a bit more tightly packed.
The caravan itself was lovely. Great fun, well turned out and equipped. I loved the BBQ option!

Fun, Relaxing and Unique Experience
I was very excited to stay at Autocamp from what I had seen online. Most of the other lodges near Yosemite and in the valley seemed a bit outdated and very expesnive for what you get. My husband was a little skeptical of the whole glamping concept (he is very outdoorsy and didn't understand why we were paying money for glorified camping). Autocamp exceeded my expectations and converetd my husband into a glamper! We stayed in an airstream which was clean, well designed and had everything we needed for our stay. The grounds were beautiful and the amentities were perfect. They clubhouse is such a great idea because my reservation with camping is usually what do you do when it is dark outside and all you have is a campfire and lamps to do any sort of activites? They not only have a campfire for making smores but also have pleanty of games/activities in the clubhouse for after dark. I was pleasantly surprised that they provided a continental breakfast, which I hadn't seen on the website. Overall our stay was 10/10 and we look forward to checking out their east coast location when it opens!
