The park was nice and appears to be a real family oriented place in the summer. The site we had was roomy and required some leveling. Laundry service could have some signs on how long the loads take. Their W-fi service provided by Tengo was poor. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Motorhome.

We stayed here over the Labor Day weekend and was gouged on the rates, it's not worth $55 per night. The sites and roads are dirt and no sign of maintenance for some years. We agree with the earlier reviewer about signs and finding your site but the staff are very helpful and we were shown to our site. Restrooms were clean except for the last 24 hours of our stay when they were not cleaned at all. They are stained however and do need refurbishment. The garbage dumpsters were a mess and just dumped in an open area with bits of garbage lying around. Wifi was Tengonet which was flaky. We had a large site with picnic table. There did not appear to be a designated pet area and laundry was hung between trees. The local town of Groveland was lovely with a good reasonably priced supermarket and good fuel prices in the local gas station. We were very upset at having to pay premium prices because of the holiday weekend especially as the campsite was below par. It is one of the closest parks to Yosemite NP. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Fifth Wheel.

Enjoyed the campground - clean pool and it was well occupied in early evening 1st night we were there. Other sport areas, too, plus the petting zoo, all of which my grandson took advantage of. Have a small store (Popsicle time) and a deli which we didn't try. Activities like marshmallow roast/hay rides/line dancing, but too early for us this trip as we weren't back from Yosemite in time on 2 of the nights we were there. Is about 22 mi from Big Oak Flat gate to Yosemite, which was probably about a 25 minute drive, which we really enjoyed both days. Each site also has a light on top of the power stands - most worked. The sites are terraced and they do have nice tent sites, too. Most sites seemed accessible by most rigs. Bathrooms clean enough and well lit (some stains in fiberglass showers) to be comfortable using. They also have cabins and yurts, which my daughter and son-in-law peeked in and said were nice, and they have a nice "training" course on the trail which they explored. Reasonable rates. Would definitely stay there again. Very nice people both as staff and guests. They even led several rigs in after dark (and probably after their work shift would have required it). We had full hookups, but they also have some with just electric and water. No cell service (but the entire area is sporadic and I was told in town that Verizon seemed to work best). Used the Wi-Fi a couple of times and it was easy and worked pretty well, but I was using at off-peak hours. I felt the roads were well marked, so unless they've changed the signs since someone else posted in July, I'm not sure what they are talking about. Also, you probably won't see much green grass/weeds, etc., unless you are there in spring/late fall/winter because there just isn't much water. Considering the sites in the area we were in were all dirt, you might not want to stay there in really rainy weather - I didn't notice any gravel or paved sites, but that might just be me. Very pleasant and relaxing park. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Fifth Wheel.

We really enjoyed this RV park; it was like being in a state park but with all the amenities. Because of the high fire danger, fires were not allowed. Park was very quiet at night. People in office were very friendly and helpful. There was a small petting zoo, the pool looked nice, there is a deli and the park store had some stuff for sale. Small but reasonably-priced and clean laundry room. There was a nice nature trail with exercise stations. Sites are long and wide enough for big rigs, some pull-throughs, some back-ins. Groveland has some nice restaurants and a decent grocery store; the Iron Door Saloon was great. The things that needed improvement: upper level bathrooms could have been cleaner, the sites need some gravel as they're mostly dirt and are very dusty, Wi-Fi unreliable, and the cable had some fuzzy channels. Please note: if you come in on 120 from 49 (from the west), you will have to come up Moccasin Grade, which is five steep miles of hairpin turns, blind curves, no guardrails and other delights, which makes pulling a big fiver challenging. DO NOT be tempted to take the short cut, which is Old Priest Grade, because it's even worse. If you have a large rig and want to come through Yellowstone, you have tunnels with low clearances on the sides, and you can't be guaranteed that there won't be oncoming traffic so you can drive down the middle. We had a great time here, though, and would gladly be back for another visit. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Fifth Wheel.

This may have been a nice park in it's day, but you can see a lack of upkeep around the park and a lot of disrepair. The front/pool area was nice, but that stopped when you got to the sites. Our site was level but narrow. They state 14 cable channels but we were only able to get 4 which were poor/snowy. Went up to the shower/restroom area by our site. The easiest way to put it was nasty. Dumpsters around the park were overflowing the day we arrived. Fine for a stop over night, but we would not stay here again for an extended period of time.

Stayed at this "campground" in July. Checked in and was told to go to the site marked by the signs. Only problem the signs were positioned wrong. Problems getting into site. Very run down park for the rate charged. Was basically a red dirt camp witrh dust everywhere. Pool looked like they hadn't added chlorine in months. Ok for a quick overnight but wouldn't stay any longer. Wi-Fi was down most of the time and the channels on TV were snowy. No cell service whatsoever, Looked like most of the rentals were tents...

Everything within Yosemite Park was booked so we decided to stay here. The swimming pool, which was well maintained, sealed the deal, as we have teenagers & it was close to 100 degrees. Great park for families, with many activities, petting zoo, gold panning, hayrides, hamburgers on grill, etc. Small store and deli onsite were handy. Campground is in a gully so no cell service. Had to use pay phone at office. Wi-Fi was good by the pool/store, but not reliable at campsite. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Restrooms and showers in excellent condition. There is daily bus service (YARTS- $15 RT) to Yosemite valley for those who don't want to drive 45 minutes each way. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Travel Trailer.

I was able to get a site here on short notice when all of Yosemite was booked. The other reviews describe the amenities pretty well, and yes, it's a bit dusty with lots of trees. But I enjoy the trees, it still feels like you are camping but have full hookups. Although the park entrance is only about 20 miles away, the valley floor is at least an hour, with Glacier Point another 40 minutes after that. But when Yosemite is booked, you take what you can get.

Although others have commented on the dust it is a fine campground. All different kinds of accommodations, things to do, nice facilities, and pool. The National Park is still a ways away, but I don't know if you can camp closer. This is a good place to stay if you don't have reservations inside the park. Would return.

Yosemite Pines campground was a very nice location. It has spots for all kinds of camping – RV, tents, yerts and cabins. The park is very woodsy, and is also very family friendly. There is a small store for purchasing last minute supplies as well as a deli. The restrooms and showers were very clean. Each spot had a picnic table and fire pit. For RVers, there were pull-through spots and back-ins. The park also has volleyball, playground equipment, and a very nice pool with tables and lounge chairs. The only downside was that the Internet Wi-Fi connection was very poor. Another positive was that the web site gave us the appropriate driving directions for RVs (come up route 120). I would definitely recommend this park for families. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great park, well laid out and with lots of amenities, e.g., an on-site Deli, petting farm, pool, cabins, etc. However, as previous campers have mentioned, and for a number of years, the dust is horrendous!! The roadways are in desperate need of a layer of pebbles . Even the 5 MPH speed limit through out the park doesn't help the problem. We had the first site up in Section B and coped with dust every time someone drove in or out. The park advertise free Wi-Fi but in all honesty it was largely nonexistent; it didn't work more than it did. When we asked the office about it they merely brushed us off and said it was a bit of a dinosaur. Very frustrating as there is no Verizon coverage in this area either, so we had no phone and lousy Wi-Fi. The park is about 20 miles from Yosemite National park.

We stayed here for a week while visiting Yosemite. Our site # 85 was big enough for our 40' motorhome and tow vehicle. The staff was great and the deli served great food. We will stay here again. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Motorhome.

This CG needs some major renovation. The roads are in dire need of gravel to keep the dust down. Just walking your dog will raise a cloud of dust. The sites are very small for big rigs. My site had tree branches hanging so low they laid on top of the coach and trees so close as to prevent our awnings from opening. Trees definitely needed trimming. Electric, water and sewer service were fine. Rate posted was with Good Sam discount. I would not camp here again. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Motorhome.

This campground had loads of activities for the children, trailer rides, campfire talks, petting farm, a pool, deli, volleyball court to name but a few. We only stayed a night and only used the firepit and picnic table on the site. We had a pull through site which was mostly flat and had some shade. The hookups were easy and the neighbors a little close! We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Motorhome.

All around this park was nice.  The staff was great, and the very friendly grounds crew does a wonderful job.  It had large level spots and they were very accommodating to give us a nice shady back-in.  We were here for a week and a couple of days it hit 100 degrees F. The hiking trail with the exercise stations was quiet original for an RV park. Nice pool and the on-site restaurant food was great. If I have any negatives it would be the dust.  All of the sites and road are soft dirt so even at the speed limit of 5MPH dust is everywhere.  Some gravel or road-base would be invaluable. Also, they should take the "fact" that they offer cable off of the advertisement.  It doesn't work.  I complained and was told the were "working on it." No fault of the parks: we have Verizon and had no service, even in town. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Fifth Wheel.
