Love this park and its feel of being in the forest. The sites are nice and the park didn't even feel overcrowded during July 4th weekend. There is a nice pool and store and it is well maintained and security roams around all the time. There was a camper with a fire too big by our site and was told to tone it down . All pets were on leashes and it seemed that owners picked up after them . The place is pretty quiet and has families and tourists and less of that party feel that some parks have. We will be back. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Travel Trailer.

I am really disappointed with this park. The road to get it the campground is extremely steep with hairpin turns. But honestly all roads to get to Yosemite will require some challenging roads. The elderly lady at check in was very rude and it appeared that we were a bother for her to help check us in. We were not offered an escort to our site. The campground is extremely dusty. The campground has a small petting zoo, but it also smells terrible. The sites are very close together, and we could hear our neighbor's conversations. We went back to the office to let them know that we were leaving a day early, and they never asked why we were dissatisfied. I will not return to this park, not recommend it to others. The internet rarely worked and you do not get any value for your dollar. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Travel Trailer.

Hwy 120 in is treacherous, but, could be our age (80). Park is clean. Staff OK not to helpful Tengointernet dicey. No cell phone service other than Verizon. Spaces roomy. 21 miles to Yosemite Park Entrance. 18 mies more to get to the valley. Our destination was the Majestic Hotel, took 1 1/2 Hours on a Wednesday. The park was packed and hot 98*. We enjoyed the stay but will not return do to Hwy 120. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Motorhome.

Thank you for taking the time to write and giving us a high rating. Once you arrive at the Resort, guests often take the YARTS to the park as it stops at our property during the spring and summer months.

We are working to improve the internet. So pleased you enjoyed Groveland and Yosemite. We do hope to see you again.

We stayed in one of the no dump spots. It was a nice secluded spot away from the majority of other campers. We really enjoyed it! If your rig is too large to stay in Yosemite, this park is a great alternative. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Motorhome.

Gravel/dirt site (50) that was not level but the Jacks made it livable. Site was long enough for 37' rv with tow vehicle but was very narrow for the 4 slides. We were there in early May so the worker bees were working very hard on getting the park spruced up for the season. Clean showers and laundry (1.25 for wash and 1.00 for dry) and very helpful and friendly folks in the office. Yes the drive up is steep and windy but not as stressful as driving thru L.A.! On the drive down we connected the tow at the bottom of the hill. About an hr. drive to Yosemite village but we'll worth it. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Motorhome.

Clean park with friendly staff. Beautiful setting and close to Yosemite National Park. The bathrooms were very clean and showers were nice. We enjoyed hiking the trails around the campground. The pool was refreshing after a long hike. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Tent.

We stayed here for 4 nights to visit Yosemite NP. The grounds were mostly dirt and gravel. It was very dusty, but it IS California and they are in a terrible drought situation. Surprisingly the water pressure was good. The wifi was good ONLY during the day when everyone was away from the campground. The sewer connection was such that our fitting did not fit it. Our site #74 was very roomy and level. We did not use the restrooms , showers, or laundry. I prefer to use our own MH facilities. They have a small store and a Deli. The pool was full of rowdy kids. There is a petting zoo on site. The road in (Old Hwy 120) was narrow and twisting, but we were able to maneuver our 41 footer with toad attached. The Hwy coming up to Groveland (Priest Pass) was scary but we did it with our toad attached. We will leave the toad unhitched for the trip back down. As mentioned by another reviewer the CG is 22 miles from the entrance to Yosemite. The drive to Tuolumne Meadows is another 39 mi and Yosemite Valley was 24 miles from entrance. Cell service was zero for ATT. We would stay here again as choices are limited. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Motorhome.

The drive up was a little scary, but not as bad as we expected after reading some of the reviews. It was easy to enter and exit the campground, and our site was long and mostly level. The kids loved the nature trail, petting zoo, and play area. We had almost no cell reception (Verizon). This was our basecamp for visiting Yosemite, and the drive to and from the park each day was not bad. The staff was friendly, and the laundry room was very small, but clean. We would stay here again. We camped here in a 42 ft. fifth wheel. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Fifth Wheel.

Our site was not level, hookups are good, the free Tengo WiFi is good, the staff does not enforce the park rules. When I mentioned the problem with campfires which were not allowed and the people who were quit noisy after quiet time I was informed that I was mistaken. The RV park is only 30 minutes to the Yosemite gate (a little over an hour to Yosemite Valley). A big con: this RV park is at about 3,000 feet elevation and there is an 8 mile climb up out of the valley, on Route 120, to get there. This 8 mile, two-lane section is full of tight switchbacks and tour buses and logging trucks come flying down the hill towards you as you climb. We are experienced RV'ers, but this was still a harrowing experience. Other cons: the RV park is all gravel (access roads and sites) which makes it quite dusty and dirty (muddy when it rains), T-Mobile cell phone reception is non-existent. If you order food to go from the deli there is an extra charge for the plate. Really!!!! We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Motorhome.

Bathrooms were run down and not clean and showers are old and run down. No bench to place items on while showering except handicap. Water pressure was weak and husband had no hot water for his shower. I chose not to use. Water leaking out of men's room runs across sidewalk to women's restroom. Park is very dusty. Our site was not very level and we had no level space around it. Would not recommend. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Truck Camper.

Clean laundry. Nice size slots. Not much shade. Deer ran through the camp ground behind us. Level slot. Close to Sequoia National Park. Please follow their directions concerning the road up the mountain. Do not use GPS suggestions. Talked with someone who did follow GPS and it was not a road for RV.

Easy diesel fill up just outside of town. Leave early when going down the mountain to leave so you don't cross construction traffic as the road down is curvy and steep.

We stay here for two weeks. The spots are small, unlevel and no privacy. Poor customer service on Sunday; they decided to grade the dirt roads, what a dusty mess. The access road here is very scary we had to unhook tow vehicle to get up the 9% grade at 25 miles per hour. The park is quiet during the week. I doubt we will be back.

Other cons: the RV park is all gravel (access roads and sites) which makes it quite dusty and dirty (muddy when it rains), Verizon cell phone reception is poor, and there is no recycling on site.

Our site was in the B section, nestled in the pines, with crushed stone and dirt pad with shrubs, bushes and trees separating sites. Utility connections were handy, water pressure very good, wifi was very good, Verizon signal was only intermittent. Maintenance crew was always visible.
