Hanging valley of Bridalveil Creek, showing its pronounced form which is controlled, in large measure, by sparse diagonal joint structures.

Bridalveil Creek Campground, located in southern area of Yosemite National Park along Glacier Point road, is a first-come first-served campground outside of Yosemite Valley. The campground is directly off the road and thus does not require a rough drive to the campground like other Yosemite campgrounds outside of the Valley (Yosemite Creek & Tamarack Flat are examples 2-4 mile unpaved roads leading into the campground off the main road). Bridalveil Creek Campground contains 110 campsites and is in the high-country at 7,000 feet (2,100 m). It is fairly isolated and quiet. This campground is especially good considering its proximity to Glacier Point. Given the convenience one can more easily drive to Glacier Point at night to survey the night sky. The Valley is quite far from Bridalveil Creek and those looking to venture into northern regions of Yosemite National Park should expect a long drive.
