We'll be pulling the trailer in our sig which is 35 feet. They show they have sites for 35 ft rigs. Looks like dry camping only which is fine with us.

We've never stayed at this campground and looking for input from someone that has. Any issues navigating the roads going in with a 35 ft. trailer. Any input is appreciated.

No Yosemite CG have any services. The roads in that cg are very narrow, twisty and there are boulders and big trees right off the road. Try to get the site at the entrance of the park. It is possible to get deeper in the cg but it's no fun.

Rated for a 35' trailer you should have no issues. Rated for a 35' motorhome could present some difficulty. Otherwise if you fit you can stay.

Upper Pines and Lower Pines are not a problem for getting around the roads. Just make sure that you reserve a campsite that you can back into. Have fun.

UPDATE: I was going to book a site and got big warning when I added the site to the cart. The site will accommodate a 35 ft motor home but is limited to a 24 ft trailer. They said maneuverability in the campground is the biggest issue. A friend who has stayed there said they will measure you and turn you away if your trailer is over 24 ft.

Being a 8 hour tow, I decided to pass!

Seems the member that posted above is correct; the issue is maneuverability through the campground.

Thanks to all who took the time to reply.

I may be wrong and I have not checked but I thought North Pines was the only Yosemite Valley cg with large sites for RV. That's where we stayed at site 101 which is right at the entrance and easy maneuvering. The others near there are also very good 103, 105 etc. Those sites are right on the river. Later we grabbed a site that just opened, maybe 517 and had a fun time maneuvering the narrow twisty roads with boulders and big trees as I mentioned. then we had a very hard time backing into the site, but it was worth it for 5 more days in the Valley.

OK and I have parked my 26' fifth wheel in a maybe 22ish rated space. Yes it was very tight and difficult to get it turned and into the site. Rear of trailer had to overhang the tire stops and I had to park the truck sideways. Technically I fit and had no issues with the ranger. You takes your chances.

You're not wrong at all. They have sites that will accommodate 35 foot rigs. The problem is maneuvering a 35 ft travel trailer into the site which may or may not work for us. As I also mentioned, they can turn you away at the gate if your rig is too long. If you have a 35 ft motor home you're fine.

We had a 34 ft fiver and managed the roads but it was slow and very careful maneuvering around the narrow roads, boulders and big trees. Backing into the site took something like an hour, or so it seemed when we got to it. That's why I suggested those sites near the entrance if you can get one. The 100 series of sites. Look at the map.
