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.
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!
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 Most of the other lodges near Yosemite and in the valley seemed a bit outdated and very expesnive for what you get.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!
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and it was our favourite stopover on our 2 week roadtrip. We loved the atmosphere, design and location! The staff were amazing and so accommodating. The accomodation and clubhouse were so clean and we loved the little touches like yoga on the roof, campfires and welcome drink. Definitely would recommend and hopefully one day we'll be back.
I loved staying here! We stayed for three nights after flying in from Denver to Fresno. We went to Whole Foods in Fresno and purchased all of our food and wine, which was a great choice! We loved our room, but overall, the camp itself is quite crowded. The main lodge is gorgeous! We loved the fireplace, atmosphere, young fun vibe, and most of all the staff. We loved cooking every night at the camp as it was so much fun!!! Everyone should try glamping near Yosemite!
My wife and I stayed here three nights while visiting Yosemite. We had a blast! The entire experience was unique. Better than a hotel room for this trip. The park layout was great giving each visitor room and some privacy. The accommodations were fantastic. The cozy bed, the upgraded bathrooms, the common guest house with all of the amenities we could need. We loved it all. We enjoyed cooking dinner nightly in our private firepits with the provided cast iron pan and utensils. Deer roamed the grounds nightly and the fresh air with a glass of wine was a great way to unwind after visiting Yosemite during the day. The reception area offers some food, beverages, Smore kits, charcoal, firewood etc. Also a great meeting place as it is very modern with cushy seating and a fireplace inside. Reception was super friendly and helpful as well. The Airstream can be a bit space challenged but we can't wait to come back or try others such the Alexander Valley Autocamp location.
My husband and I loved staying here. It is about a 30 to 45 minute drive into Yosemite, so we liked the location. We stayed in a tent to get more of a “nature” feel and did not feel like it was too cold. A heater and a heated blanket was provided in the tent. Each tent has a fire pit out front, which we used to make dinner and s’mores each night. It’s a really nice stay. The one constructive criticism I would offer is that robes are provided in the tents (tents don’t have their own bathrooms and you shower in the clubhouse) BUT the robes will not fit larger customers and they don’t have any plus size robes you could swap for at the club house. This would be a very easy fix if they would just buy some extended sizing to stock. Otherwise this place was great. We would absolutely stay here again, probably would still do the tent rather than one of the more expensive options.
Review of AutoCamp Yosemite: The Airstream was fresh, modern, and clean. But it's a trailer so be forewarned. I didn't expect high water pressure so I didn't get too disappointed about that but if you have long, thick hair, forget it. Also, the quarters are close. Don't expect a bunch of space to move around. We didn't have a problem with it. We like each other a lot. The entry to the Airsteam has a low overhead. My husband is 5'8" and bashed his head on the doorway several times. Maybe a warning about the low entry such as red tape or something. I wish some of the blankets were of a softer fabric. Some were very scratchy but the bedding was pretty dreamy. The bed was very comfortable. We did not use the futon. The TV reception was iffy at times and so was the wifi when everyone was around using it. Firestarter bags were silly and didn't work. All of the fireplace lighters we were given were of low quality. One was out of juice entirely. Invest in some high quality lighters! Remember, you can't burn wood here, so you need to figure out how to get the charcoal going and if that little bag fizzles out, you're out of luck unless you can figure out how to get it going. Some reviews had mentioned receiving campfire popcorn. We did not. Not sure if we were supposed to and they forgot, or if it's something they used to do and no longer do. It was ok as we got a bag of Boom Chicka Pop which was sublime. We had all we needed for making breakfast tacos and steaks and grilled veggies. We paid premium price for a more secluded campsite but the truth is that it's a slog from the parking lot up the hill to the trailer and you don't get any better service by paying more. You still have to pull all your junk up the hill in a wagon, same as everybody else. The trailer is the same as all of the other trailers. Nothing different. If we had stayed in one of the "non" secluded trailers I think we would have been fine. Save your money. Don't go for the premium. It cost more than the resort we stayed in while on Kauai. Now this is a weird aesthetics thing my husband mentioned. He did not think the doors hiding the microwave or fridge were necessary, as they were always in the way. I understand the doors were there to complete the sleek, white look of the interior but he's right about them being in the way. When we got there we were told that we could have a complimentary drink. We didn't take advantage but it was a nice offer. The facility is cash free so we were able to charge a couple of bags of ice to our unit. Regarding Yosemite, we were there while a fire churned several miles away. Unfortunately, this meant we had to go WAY out of our way to get to the park and that was a bummer. If we had known about the fire's location, we would have stayed elsewhere. So, pay attention to stuff like that when booking in the area. I loved that they provided doggie treats for our puppies. They also provided a very soft blankie for the dogs. Contrary to some reviews, I thought every single person at AutoCamp was super friendly. To a person. One guy riding by in the golf cart even grabbed my trash bag and offered to throw it away for me. Several of the workers stopped to speak to me and to my husband. All very friendly. It was very quiet there and I smelled nothing but the great outdoors or smoke from the fire.
We've spent 3 nights in an airstream coming from France and have enjoyed it as a unique experience. Well support from the staff, delicious evening standing close the room outside under the cover of trees and god sleep far away from the real world...
My husband and I stayed in an airstream for 2 nights. It was so well designed, lots of little things that they’ve really thought about like the bathroom feeling like a luxury spa, the free bag of goodwood and the wireless audio system. It’s in an amazing setting and really close to shops in Midpines (use Pioneer Market for your groceries, it’s great) and an enjoyable drive away from el portal entrance to Yosemite. Oh and being greeted upon arrival with a free beer...what more could you want! Would definitely come back here.
