Camp Mather is the San Francisco family camp that was built as a sawmill for the construction of the O'Shaughnessy Dam in the 1920's 150 miles east of San Francisco near the Hetch Hetchy Valley. The border of Yosemite National Park is a mile up the road and Yosemite Valley is 18 miles south. The camp is beloved by many as an off-the-grid refuge from city life and is a treasure for generations of SF families.
