This would be a 10 campground if the owners would invest in some gravel for the sites. The pads are mostly fine, powdery dirt that tracks into your camper. Putting down gravel at the sites would also help with the off level most sites seem to be. Since we 'graduated' to a RV with levelers, it's not that annoying to us, but I remember the grief I went through with our older campers getting out the wood blocks. At mainstream campgrounds, sites should at least be close to level and not made of dusty dirt. The rest of the park, including it's proximity to Yosemite was perfect! We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Motorhome.

As others have mentioned, the entrance to this park is not well marked and comes up quickly. Once you get there, it's easy to find the office but not easy to find your spot. The roads and sites are not well marked. We circled twice to find ours and watched others do the same. The park itself has a rundown, tired feel to it. The roads are graded but not paved and are dusty. Our spot was flat and somewhat shaded, but others were not. It's a funny shaped park with odd spaces. Ours was triangular and had room. The ones around us were straight and narrow. The nearest bathrooms, which we didn't use, were an uphill walk from us. The others were downhill and a ways away. It wouldn't have been convenient to use either of them. The pool looked nice and was being happily used by a number of people. The only reason to stay here is its proximity to Yosemite. It's acceptable for a night, but I wouldn't want to stay longer and I don't think we'll stay here again. We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Motorhome.

This park is located right off RT 41; however, there are no signs and it comes up quick with a sharp turn to the left (if traveling North). It is an older park and could use some additional maintenance. The sites were not level and the sewer had a major uphill run (so much so we could not use it and when leaving stopped at another site to dump). The regular dump site is on the wrong side while leaving, that is why we had to stop at another site. We thought the rate was high for the park, but it was an OK location to get into Yosemite from the south. We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped in the newly expanded area, and our site was much too far from the restrooms which were down a steep hill. Worse, although there were light fixtures in the new area, none of the lighting was turned on, so our knees/ankle were hurt climbing up & sliding down that steep hill to the bathroom. The wi-fi did not work at all, even after re-booting our laptop 3 times. The next morning, the host was very argumentative, saying "Well, I don't turn on the lights when the season is over." and "Something must have been wrong with your computer, not my wi-fi". We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Motorhome.

The park had narrow hilly roads to get to our site. We had only water and electric. When we asked if full hookups were available, the answer was no, even though the park was empty. The only restrooms and showers were within walking distance but all uphill. Our friends who are camping with us had a picnic table unsuitable for eating. We do not recommend this campground for big rigs only tents! We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Motorhome.

Superb park that is on beautiful property that looks like an estate. Easy access for big rigs and spacious sites. The campground has superb amenities for groups and even deluxe patio sites for RVers. GPS had a difficult time finding location but easy to find between the historic town center and casino. Very close to south Yosemite entrance. Will stay here again.

We camped here to visit Yosemite. It was about 25 miles from the visitor's center. We had a shaded site on a hill. It was gravel and level. Dogs can go anywhere if on leach and you pick up. The owners were friendly. TV and Wi-fi were okay. We would camp here again. We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Motorhome.

Thirty minutes from the south gate of Yosemite, but it's a nice drive. Maneuvering is tight here, as are the sites. Utilities are OK, except cable is unwatchable and satellite is inoperable due to trees and high surrounding terrain, although that is what makes it a pretty park. The people are friendly but complain a lot. Next time we'd try to stay closer to the park, or in it. We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Motorhome.

Sites were close together. Took some wiggling around to get our 40' coach in and out. Don't let them fool you about the WiFi you only get 1 hour of poor/slow WiFi after that it is $6. The park was clean and quiet We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Motorhome.

I found the staff at this park to be very friendly and helpful. The park itself needs some work but overall its satisfactory. Its a good hour plus drive to the "valley floor" in Yosemite. There's also a good grocery and restaurants about 9 miles towards the park. We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Folks in office very friendly. The site we had was not too bad. You just have to watch folks parking in the road. Had to level on one side. Internet one hour daily free then have to purchase. Older than some KOAs we have stayed in. But close to Yosemite with hook ups. We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

I got lucky and got switched to a site above the main campground (0-10 ). We had plenty of room, and the site was level unlike the slots that most short term campers get down below. We liked the site so much we extended our stay. If we had been down below, probably not. This park has some tight turns and is on several levels on the side of a hill. The in and out from the highway is a sharp S curve. Anything over 30' is going to be challenged. We would stay here again IF we could get the same site.

Rustic feel overcomes shortcomings. We enjoyed the premium site with a private deck, including chairs, table, and gas grill. There are only two such sites available. Campground is clean but infrastructure (street lights, roads, hook-ups) need some attention. Good access to Yosemite which was our primary destination. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for a weekend trip to Yosemite since all of the Yosemite parks were full. The staff was very nice, friendly and accommodating. The park itself was very clean. Restrooms, sites, pool, clubhouse, etc. We felt it was a bit overpriced and all the grass was pretty much dry and dead. I'm sure it's much nicer in the springtime when it's cooler and everything's more green. They also do not have BBQ or fire pits and do not allow camp fires, so keep that in mind. If you are going to visit Yosemite, I would recommend Summerdale which is quite a big closer to the entrance of the park. We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We came here at the perfect time (early May). The campground was mostly empty, which made things very quiet and peaceful. The loudest noise were the occasional coyotes off in the very distant and night. The area was green and grassy, the park very clean, and the staff very helpful and kind. This was a great one day, one night stop coming home from Yosemite. It's about a one hour drive to the park entrance, and another 45-60 minutes to Yosemite Village from this campground. We'd definitely stay here again if wanted to go to Yosemite but couldn't get a camp site for our 26' TT. We also recommend eating at the Grizzly Bear Restaurant, about 5 minutes from camp, in the town of Coursegold. They have a diverse menu and GREAT food!!!
