I will be camping at Wawona group site in Aug.2010

Is Yosemite group campgrounds strict with 30 people max with 5 car limit ?

Ill probably have 30-40 people but most of them senior citizens and many toddlers,babies;and more than 5 cars and 1 or 2 dogs..

Can i get away with this? or will rangers say its a problem?

If any one can answer or been through similar situations, any input would be appreciated. Thanks again

I can only speak for the valley since I haven't camped in wawona. The cars are a definite no. They are easily countable, in the valley the parking pad will only fit the listed number of cars. As far as the people, I have seen people booted out because there were too many. That group was loud and obnoxious though. I had 8, 4 were todlers, on a site listed for 6 people. They noticed but were kind enough not to enforce the rule.

It all depends on the ranger and what kind of day they are having.

Ive seen at least 10 packed onto one site, with about 3 cars. Not once did the rangers bug them. However this was in Tuolumne. Its all up to the staff thats working.
