Yosemite Camping at Wowona and Ostrander Lake Oct 7-9

Ostrander Lake

Ostrander Lake

This year we will be car camping at the Wowona Group Campsite near Yosemite’s south entrance near highway 41 from Fresno on Friday night, October 7. Saturday we will hike around 7 miles up toward Ostrander Lake and set up our camp near there. Sunday morning  we will hike out in a different direction from where we came, back to the Wawona Campsite. We will then drive back up to the Bridal Veil trail head to pick up our cars.

Some people claim Ostrander Lake was named for a sheepman (a demonic half sheep/half man creature from the abyss, others say it was named after a descendant of Alexander Ostrander (1783) of Smithfield NY. It is a very popular backpacking stop in the Park. Fishing is fair for 10-12″ rainbow trout.  For details go to the Calendar page for this event.
