People [including myself] often complain about the rowdiness at the Yosemite campgrounds, where they literally pack campers like Japanese train attendants. So much for getting out of our claustrophobic city lives to ease our minds through nature, such is the irony. Hidden Valley at JTree is a little bit better, but you still can’t escape those morning wake-up calls (aka crying babies) and the hair-pulling traffic jams (aka RV blockages).
The Sheep Pass Campground, however, offers visitors a more secluded stay in the park. As an added bonus for climbers, it is only walking distance from countless boulder problems, yet remote enough to make you appreciate the wilderness. Nothing beats having a dyno for breakfast with a herd of yipping coyote to cheer you on!
