Indian Flat RV Park, and the driving to get there - including some tough situations and IMPORTANT information for anyone going to Yosemite National Park in an RV.
Photos were taken out the window of the moving RV (thus the glare) somewhere on the way from Three Rivers, California to El Portal, California - April 30, 2009.

importantIF YOU DRIVE A RV, YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS: The two RV Gypsies had to unhitch their tow car from the motorhome before they could drive up the mountain because vehicles over 45 feet are NOT allowed and there is a $270 fine. The RV of the two RV Gypsies is 40 feet and with the hitch and car, they were 60 feet long. They had trouble finding a spot big enough and flat enough to unhitch the car, but finally managed to do so.
BELOW: Two narrow bridges that Lee had to drive the motorhome through. They were both one-way bridges so they had to wait at a traffic light about 15 minutes for the clearance to drive across the bridge. This part was not so much fun.

Indian Flat RV Park is close to the entrance of Yosemite National Park and is nice enough, but not much in amenities. And remember the above mentioned vehicle length restriction, one-way narrow bridge, and the curvy narrow mountain road. No internet or cell phone reception in the campground nor in Yosemite.

Behind the two RV Gypsies' RV there was just enough room for a person to walk. RVs were parked back to back. Plus there was only one-inch of space between their slide-out and a wall.

Not too much room between the slide out and the tree. No room to put the awning out either.

A nice view from outside the RV, but when looking out the window of the RV, there was a small tree that blocked the view. Wish we could have cut the small tree down, but of course that was not possible.
