Very unusual park with staggered sites inserted into shady nooks with nice, woodsy views. Electric is included in the fee and Wifi is good as well as Verizon coverage. Cable TV included, also. Yes, the roads are very twisty and some fairly steep but it's worth the navigation. The office staff are volunteers and some seem a bit confused at times but all are extremely nice as are the residents. Many bird species abound and there are lovely walking trails within the huge park. I stayed a little over two weeks and would return. One caveat: Watch out for kamikaze golf carts. We camped at Park of the Sierras (Escapees Only) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Von's in Oakhurst is a good place for groceries. Yosemite NP is just up the road.

Rate includes electric add on. Interior roads are too twisty-turny narrow in spots. Sites are OK but some have level issues. Most activities are geared toward "sit down" lifestyle, and our impression is the bulk of members are at the older end of the spectrum as far as 55+ communities go. This is a good location for trips to Yosemite, but otherwise it is off the beaten path as far as civilization (re: major shopping) is concerned. Some areas in park are a bit overgrown and need maintenance. Overall a quiet park, nice layout, lots of shade trees, and lengthy roads for walking the dogs (with fenced dog run near clubhouse). Clubhouse is large, has a small video/cd/book library, and various exercise equipment. We camped at Park of the Sierras (Escapees Only) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Yosemite NP is a must.

Nice park, pleasantly laid out, large sites, lots of shade. Mostly, the most friendly, helpful, and welcoming people I have ever seen. We camped at Park of the Sierras (Escapees Only) in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects a promotional rate. This is a gorgeous park and could have been a "10" except for some minor nits. The park is set in a hilly area with sites dropped in where they could which makes for great views and lots of room between sites. The route to our site was very narrow in spots and appreciated the drive thru via golf cart first and then the golf cart leading us. Each of the areas are on septic so they definately stay here again though we would just be better prepared for the restrictions. We camped at Park of the Sierras (Escapees Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice rural park set in the trees. There area a few sites that are satellite friendly. The site we had was gravel and quite large with a nice view. You have a cement patio. Lots of bluebirds around. The road noise was barely noticeable. The roads are narrow and twisty. I'm not exactly sure how I am going to make the turn out of here when I leave. It is true that you are not allowed to use your own washing machine or dishwasher. The dog run is near the clubhouse so you may need to drive to it. They claim to have about 5 miles of roads in the park. The traffic and access to and from the park on Hwy 41 is terrible. It is like LeMans in the way the locals drive. This park is only for Escapees club members. We would return but probably would not buy into this park. We camped at Park of the Sierras (Escapees Only) in a Motorhome.

The rate shown is the daily rate ($16/day) and averaged electric usage (calculated at the end of your stay based on actual use.) This is such a pretty park. Everyone we met had a smile and welcoming words for us. The park is super organized and immaculately kept. All the work done within the park (with the exception of a couple of paid workers) is done by the park residents as volunteers. We like to walk, and found that between the roads within the park, and the trails outside the park proper, we could easily walk 5+ miles. We really enjoyed our stay here, and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Park of the Sierras (Escapees Only) in a Motorhome.

The rate given above reflects the daily rate plus electricity. It was very hot while we were there, so we used a lot of electricity! This is our all-time favorite RV park. The sites, which are level, with modern, working hook-ups, are thoughtfully laid out over hilly, wooded terrain. This is a rural setting which we like. There are several areas of open space near-by, conducive for walking. The folks here are either full-time RVers, or people retired from full-time traveling, but staying here in their motor homes or fifth wheels. They are a friendly bunch and fun to socialize with. We camped at Park of the Sierras (Escapees Only) in a Motorhome.

This is a great park to be close to Yosemite. The members who live here are very friendly. Our site was a pull through, but getting to it took some doing as the roads to the different sites are quite curvy and narrow. Chukchansi casino is 1 mile up 41. We would return when in the area.

Probably the best layout of all RV Parks we have stayed in ever. The sites are spread out in a hilly area with lots of trees and shrubs. Even in the few parallel sites you keep your privacy. Perfect hookups, very level and good size sites. Wi-Fi was the best we ever had since one repeater was right on our site. Nice clubhouse and lots of activities. Very friendly staff and very friendly fellow campers. We stayed for nine days and would have stayed longer if it wasn't for the traffic noise from the nearby state road. It depends a lot on where your site is located in the park; there are some fully exposed to the road noise, some are very quiet. For groceries you need to drive to Oakhurst, about 16 miles away. We'll return for sure and hope for a quieter site next time. We camped at Park of the Sierras (Escapees Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park in a pretty rolling hill setting. Sites are large, level and most are shaded. Nice large gated dog run with lights available for night use. Yosemite is about an hour and a quarter away. Roads from the RV park to Yosemite are in great shape. People at the park are very friendly and helpful. We camped at Park of the Sierras (Escapees Only) in a Motorhome.

Members only park. Wonderful, friendly, helpful people. Most site have shade. The few that don't would not recommend in the summer. Many activities to join in on...or not. Would stay again. We camped at Park of the Sierras (Escapees Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our first visit to an Escapees park, and we really enjoyed it. The sites are good sized and level. You pay for electricity separately. The area is beautiful. The one thing to remember is to let the water run for a bit before hooking up to your RV or filter. There is a lot of sediment in the water, especially if the site has been inactive for awhile. If you have a washer/dryer you can't use it due to septic restrictions. We would stay here again. We camped at Park of the Sierras (Escapees Only) in a Motorhome.

Must be a member of Escapees. Cash only. Can't use the washer and dishwasher because the sewer system can't handle it. Restrooms and showers are clean. Sites are level and built on a hill. The ground was hard and the sites are well spaced. The sites you can use are vacated by their owners. Our site access was easy but I think most of them are back in. Park roads were paved. There is internet at the club house. It is a quiet park and a little out of town. Park is well maintained by owners and volunteers. We stayed to go to Yosemite. It was too far: we put 300 miles on the car. We camped at Park of the Sierras (Escapees Only) in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects 50% off week's stay coupon plus electric usage for a 50 amp full hook-up site. This is one of the friendliest parks we have visited. We took the tour and enjoyed learning how the residents volunteer to maintain and staff the park. Roads were paved with steep hills and some tight turns for big rigs. Sites are large and most are gravel. Nights are very quiet and the stars are spectacular. Verizon signal and MiFi worked fine. The park gets well deserved high ratings, however, our personal preference is not so far off the beaten path. We had great difficulty trying to keep the foxtails and corkscrews off of our long-haired dogs just from walking them along the paved streets. There were lots of interesting birds and other wildlife. We would stay again, mostly because of the nice people and outstanding value. We camped at Park of the Sierras (Escapees Only) in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our stay at this SKP park, which was a first, for 10 days. This is a membership/owner type park and you are renting an empty spot who's owner is not present. Clean, well laid out, friendly and a host of activities if you wish to partake. We camped at Park of the Sierras (Escapees Only) in a Motorhome.
