Love the photos, will definitely have to check that place out. I think it's about a 5 hour drive from where we are in Reno. Love the drive down old 395!!!

Looks like you found a great site! We are planning on being at Tuttle Creek this coming weekend. Will probably scout out some more sites out at Alabama hills though for next time.


Not looking forward to the construction on Whitney Portal road though, hopefully it isn't backed up too bad enough to affect traffic to Tuttle Creek or Alabama Hills.

Not dispersed camping but because your down that way you might have an answer. What's the best route for getting a trailer into Yosemite?

Hey, we're in Ridgecrest too! We may be up there this weekend again too. lol Traffic wasn't an issue at all. The first bridge was single lane with stop signs or a flag man depending on time. Other than that no issues between the turn off for Tuttle or Movie Rd at this time. We dump at Tuttle before heading home.

I've never pulled a trailer into Yosemite as I don't care for the crowds. However, I can't remember there being any real issues getting a trailer in on 120 out of Lee vining (the only way in from the east side). Most direct to the valley would be 140 from the west if I recall correctly.

Here's a link to some tips/restrictions.

Vehicle Restrictions - Yosemite National Park (U.S. National Park Service)

Is the dump station actually open and $5 as it states on the site?

We were up there for Veteran's day 2014 and they had 2/3 of the campground closed as well as the dump station for some big cleanup project. The first loop was open but was completely full and we weren't the only rig that drove up and had to make a U-turn and head back out. I was very mad since there was no mention of it on the site! We ended up going to Diaz and that was how we discovered it. It was our first trip with a TT, so I wasn't happy doing all that driving around.

Hopefully our first trip with this new-to-us trailer will go a bit smoother. The one thing I love about RC is how close to the mountains we are and the fact we can camp pretty much year round here!

The dump was open and $5. Both loops were open.
The rv park across from Diaz also will allow you to pull into a site and dump for $10.
