I don't understand many of the good reviews for this park. I am usually reluctant to issue a bad review but this RV park is just not very good. It's only redeeming factor is its close proximity to the south entrance of Yosemite. The roads leading down to the park are extremely narrow. The speed bumps are the worst I've seen: ridiculously huge and not painted well so you hit them before you knew what was coming. While there are trees all around, the RV sites are all dusty gravel and unbelievably close together. Sewer connections are horrible. Your site is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Works for me since I usually arrive early, but a ridiculously lazy policy. Most of the sites are so narrow that many people's slideouts, awnings, and other gear are encroaching on neighboring sites. This is not a pretty park and I detect very little attention to detail here. I won't stay here again. We camped at Bass Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Spaces are very close together. Our awning almost touch the campers next to us. We were in location 33. It was difficult for my automatic levelers to level my unit. I suggest the back-in sites along the wall where the pool is located. They appear more level and provide more shade. Laundry was reasonably priced at $2 and $1.50 dry. Washers do not have a fabric softener dispenser. All the guests were very friendly and we made a number of friends. On Saturday and Sunday the snack bar is open for breakfast and they let you know by ringing a big dinner bell at 8am. We camped at Bass Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects $10 in Coast to Coast points plus $2 for 50 Amp and $10 "Resort Fee" per day. Even though we didn't use any of the "Resort Facilities" since we were at Yosemite all day, every day. Our site was a level, gravel back-in FHU in a well shaded part of the park (You select your own site.) The manage is very focused on serving the Member/Campers and seems to treat travelers an a necessary evil. Look out for the speed bumps on the interior roads. They are not marked. If we are in this area again, we will probably stay somewhere closer to Fresno. We camped at Bass Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Pop's Family Restaurant in Oakdale is worth a visit; as is El Cid Mexican Restaurant. Von's is the better supermarket.

Stayed here for a week while touring Yosemite and surrounding area. Very nice campground, a little anxious about the entry road being so narrow but road around camp sites was fine. Office is not the first building when pulling into campground but it is a cabin. You have to go further into park to get to office. We arrived after 5:00 and picked our own site. We had reservations but they didn't leave us any info or have a record of our reservation. Got that straighten out the next morning. We stayed at site 12, nice back in with plenty of room. Gravel sites with paved roads and picnic tables. Very nice lodge with a nice book exchange. Laundry had four washers and two working dryers. $1.50 per machine. We camped at Bass Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We are not members of Resorts of Distinction but our Good Sam's member ship got us in for $62 a night. Price on the high side but since we live an hour away makes it nice for a quick weekend trip to the mountains. Spaces do seem close but wasn't bad since park not very busy. Also in parts of the park the spaces look like they would be very difficult to back into. I was concerned about this when making reservation because I thought they assigned space. Found out on arrival it's first come first serve and you park wherever there is space available. They had full hookups including cable tv with about 10 stations. They offer WiFi but even with good signal strength speed was like the old dial-up days. If you want internet plan on using your data plan from provider. Got good 4G with Verizon. Will diffidently go back, enjoyed the stay and a nice place to get away from heat of central valley during the summer. We camped at Bass Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Pines Resort next door. There is a market and few few restaurants within the area of the resort. Oakhurst not to far off if you want more shopping or restaurant choices.

We are Resorts of Distinction members so the $7 price is the daily "utility charge" we had to pay upon check in. Very tight back in site. Our neighbors had their slide open which extended into our site. Road noise woke me at 6:30 am. No AT&T cell or internet coverage, and their Wi-Fi was not working. We paid $14 for the utility charge for 2 nights, but left after one night. We will not stay here again. We camped at Bass Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very well run park. Managers and volunteers were very friendly and helpful. Main reason it didn't get a 10 is the Wi-Fi was spotty and continually drops you offline. While the showers were large enough and clean, the water never got very hot. We were here for 7 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The rate for C2C was $10/night, but by the time we added 50 amp, cable TV and taxes, it came out to $21.50/night. We would definitely stay here again.

Were there before the 'season' began so for a couple of days we were almost the only ones in the park. There are a lot of rigs left parked and used on the weekends only. But they seem to maintain things quite well. Some of the sites are hard to get into because of small trees that don't line up with site lines. Back ins are much better than pull-throughs. Sites are very narrow. But it is a nice park, they were just opening the cafe the weekend we left. Great area, pretty country and an easy drive up to Yosemite. Oakhurst is just down the hill and has everything you need. We stayed under ROD and would definitely go back again. We camped at Bass Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We bought a membership to this park and we are very disappointed. As a local RV dealership said, "They are nice to you until you buy into the park." Then they were very hard to deal with, giving us sites we couldn't get into and acting like that was all there was. If you want to stay temporarily, it is fine but very dusty. Winter time has drainage issues. They are rude. We camped at Bass Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A first class resort in all respects. We stayed using our Resorts Of Distinction membership and paid nothing. I had to list $1 to make the web page accept the review. Great location near Yosemite National Park's south entrance. Located in a ponderosa pine forest with oak, young redwood and other trees plentiful. The facilities are well maintained and activities are well organized. Wi-Fi availability is limited but they are expecting to install more antennae soon to make it available throughout the park. The lake is within walking distance and several services including Post Office are available next door at The Pines Village Resort. All services are about 15 minutes away in Oakhurst. Yosemite's entrance is about 15 miles north on Hwy 41 but Yosemite Valley is about an hour drive on this winding 35 mph road once you enter the park. We would definitely stay here again.

Park is very clean and well kept. Was able to access WiFi from our site. Sites are close but the pull throughs are very easy to get in and out of. We camped at Bass Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This membership resort now offers free, good quality wifi and has an exercise room. Small but clean pool, nice little store and on-site meals on weekends. Some sites level, "parking-lot" style", others off in the woods. Bass Lake walking distance. I would rate higher but saw issues this visit with site policies. Officially its always first come, first served, but saw issues with confusion in the office and less than polite service from the staff. We camped at Bass Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Lots of work has been done. New paint, wood stained, trees trimmed, roads in great shape. Kudos to all the workers and managers. Snack bar is open and the cooks do a terrific job. Everything on the dinner, lunch, and breakfast menu is delicious. Don't miss this if you visit. Only thing keeping it from a perfect 10 is the sites need new gravel. A little dusty.

This is a very popular park due to its proximity to Yosemite. The routes to the park are very mountainous. The park is within walking distance to the lake and the nearby resort village with a well stocked market. The office staff and park management are a bit rigid and could be nicer, but perhaps this is how the park is kept so well. Most big rigs and 5th wheels are herded into a small valley in the center of the park where the sites are very small. I closed one of my slides in order to give my neighbor room enough for a picnic table. Most sites in that section are awning to awning, some with slides within inches of one another. The park amenities are nice and all of the visitors to the park were very friendly and welcoming. The Wi-Fi service became weaker as the park filled to the point where I could no longer access the internet. The cable channel selection is excellent including some movie channels. The sewer connections are a bit unique, but posed no problems. There are sites much larger and more spread out in the surrounding wooded areas. If you are good at maneuvering through narrow openings and gullies it is well worth the effort vs being cattle herded into the center section. The park is out of the way, but worth going back to again. We camped at Bass Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Good place for Yosemite access, bad for people that need to be "plugged in", because their wifi was too weak to use and cell coverage is nil. Satellite dish pointing difficult (these are mountains with VERY tall trees.) "Fenced dog run" quite a joke: it's about 20 feet square. We had to put our awning away so the MH next to us could extend his slideout. Very friendly and chatty fellow RVers. None of the "amenities" (snack bar, store etc.) open except on weekends. Loved the town of Oakhurst: great shopping and eating. Bathrooms could use updating (raw crumbling concrete) and heat. We'll come back because it's so close for visiting Yosemite. We camped at Bass Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
