Check-in with reservation was efficient and friendly. Gentleman on cart lead us to our site and was helpful. Although the original site would not accommodate our coach the alternative was adequate but un-level, with low tree branches. In all fairness this CG is more for the family back to nature typical to KOA adventure. We prefer the large coach friendly level in-out treeless versions. They were renovating both the laundry and restrooms in this section construction going on. DH typically reviews & uses showers etc., not here. The clubhouse renovation looked nice upon check-in, small store. Good location for National Forest access. We went a couple times. There was no internet access, although there was a marginal WiFi signal? Park was quiet and dark as some would prefer. Dog friendly in that your dirt grassy site and adjoining area were ample, scare lights & headlamp required. We carried our trash with us as the construction had things in disarray. If there was a trash receptacle it wasn't obvious. This CG has potential but not really our preference. Winding dirt and un-level for the most part. We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Obviously the draw of this area is the National Forest. It was beautiful, lots of snow still. Diesel wasn't too far away. We were unable to frequent any of the Niche type restaurants (BBQ, steak, etc.) as they all seemed to be closed on Mon. and beyond. Must have been to early in the season? There was a tasty Chinese restaurant in a strip shopping center many of the locals frequent & Carl's Jr.

The grounds and amenities are pretty good. The pool is great, the clubhouse is in remodel and supposed to be done Sept 9. Most of the sites are very tight with no picnic tables or hang out area. They are about to do some re-grading; hopefully they will put more space between sites. We had a hard time parking our tow vehicle nearby. Everyone we encountered was very friendly. They enforced quiet hours to the cabins nearby. We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Great Park! We loved it! Beautiful park. Close to Yosemite, customer service was awesome. Bathrooms were clean. The swimming pool is awesome and had very nice views. A lot to explore on the grounds with tiny houses and yurts were fun to look at. We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Motorhome.

Very spacious park and kept very clean. Nice laundry and bathrooms. Right at the south entrance into Yosemite. We were in section H and when we arrived there were only 2 RVs in this 50 space section. We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very close to Yosemite southern entrance. Excellent layout of campground No gravel on our site and it was very dusty, would be a mess if it rained. Site was not very level need to invest in some gravel since they claim they are making improvements. Bathroom was dirty and needed a cleaning. Shower was good. Good cable and WiFi. We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Motorhome.

To be fair it's California in September during the worst drought in decades. That said, this place could use some work. Sites are fairly good size but are not level. It's nothing but dust and dirt. Supposedly, there's WiFi but we couldn't get it to work the 2 days we were there. Even cell phone reception is sketchy. They are supposedly renovating, but all we saw were people cutting down dead trees. Expensive rate for what you get. We camped at Yosemite South / Coarsegold KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park's physical setting is absolutely gorgeous! I selected this park because of its location and as a seasoned traveler, I trust the KOA brand. I will not make that mistake again! According to the local Sheriff's Department this park has the highest crime rate in the area. There have been many burglaries at this park just since the first of the year!

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.

Big place with small bushes but mainly a dusty appearance. Clerks rather clueless. We used this as base for Yosemite and wouldn't recommend that as it is a100 minute drive to Yosemite Valley (where most of the good stuff is). Overall fine, but we spent little time here as we were mainly driving back and forth. Had to pay for wi-fi which is available but not free.
