Very nice campground located within 20-30 minutes from Yosemite National Park. This is a small park with RV sites and some cabins, no tents allowed. The pool was appreciated after a long day of hiking. Wifi didn't work very well, but they let you know that during check in. Fuel is available on site. There's a small playground for children. My only suggestion is to add a fenced dog area. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV park served a purpose...a place to sleep at the end of long days in Yosemite. This is a small park with more park model rentals than RV sites. We were there the week of Memorial Day so I had made reservations a few months in advanced. Could have found a site short notice, but only for 1-2 nights as people were in and out of the park frequently. Even though you are 13 miles from the Yosemite park entrance it's still a 45-60 Minute drive to the Valley floor, Hetch Hetchy and Glacier Peak. Be sure to arrive at the park entrance before 8:30AM or after 4-5PM to avoid lines at the entrance and to find parking. Most days we were heading back to the RV about 2pm (we have a dog) and experienced 3mile long traffic trying to get into the park. Had a late start one morning and got to the entrance at 9:30. Had a 30 minute wait in traffic. Would recommend avoiding the valley floor on weekends...insanely crowded. We stuck to perimeter hikes over the holiday and visited the valley during the week. Wifi & Verizon cell coverage is terrible at the RV park. We had better connectivity in the Valley and took our camp chairs to set up under shade in the parking lots to get calls made and some online work done. Cable was really bad in site 4 and let front desk know. Took 4 days for someone to come and test it. All he said was, " yep, it's bad" and that was the last of it. One morning we had zero water at the campsite and in the bathhouses. Bathrooms were OLD and barely functional. The pool area was very nice though! We did drive through the Thousand trails RV park a few miles down the road. Very steep road in/out but many more campsites, but felt a bit overgrown and tight. We will probably give it a try next time. Overall Yosemite Ridge was OK for our needs to go to the park every day. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A ways to go to reach greatness. Surface was a clay like dirt that never dried out, so it was muddy all the time. Water worked fine. Electric was fine until the last of our 6 days, when we had a fault warning 3 times. Sewer connection was a full foot uphill from the sewer outlet on my coach - in fact, the sewer connection was in the neighbor's site. They have cable TV and they give a list of about 12 channels. They actually get only 6 channels which include CBS and Fox, but no ABC or NBC. I counted only 9 RV sites and a dozen or so park models they rent out as cabins. Trees prevented satellite reception and it looked like there was only one site from which you would get it. WIFI is Tengointernet with all the shortcomings we are used to. It worked sometimes and not other times. It is about an hour's drive to Yosemite Valley. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

Good news is it's a nice, quiet park with good sized sites. BUT their reservations system is AWFUL! We made reservations online and received an e-mail confirmation. But when we arrived, they had us down for arriving on the following day. Evidently, the owner is only onsite during the summer season, but continues to take the reservations from his location on the east coast and then calls someone onsite to enter them on the books. Receipe for disaster. Thank goodness they had another site available for the first night and then we had to move to another site for the rest of our stay. Park needs some TLC. Water pressure is terrible, bathrooms need upgrading and we had a constant issue with gnats in our face. But the owner decided to spend his money on putting in a swimming pool. Also, they double charged us for our stay because the person working the desk the day we left couldn't find their copy of the receipt. Luckily, we had ours and she reversed the duplicate charge. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location to explore Yosemite, the park entrance is about a half hour drive. Small RV park with cabins available as well. A little dusty, they could use some gravel at some of the sites to keep the dust down. But otherwise we enjoyed our stay there. After a long day of walking or hiking we enjoyed sitting with our feet in the pool at the end of the day. Staff was friendly and we were especially appreciative of their flexibility when we had to leave early due to the excessive smoke that continued to roll in due to some wild fires in the area. On that note alone we will return to this RV park when we return to finish exploring Yosemite. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

First, let me qualify this review by saying that we made our reservations fairly close to the time we arrived so I am sure that we were assigned one of the last available sites, site 13. It was not level and we could not get level. Other sites in the park seemed to be more level. The 50 amp breaker at our site was poorly wired and did not work when we arrived. The camp maintenance man did respond fairly quickly to our request for help. We were never confident that the 50 amp breaker was working correctly. Campground lighting wiring was also poorly installed. We also had such low water pressure that we chose to use our pump. Overall, we felt that the park is in need of repair. The layout of the campground requires some skill in parking. The park is close enough to Yosemite to make it a good location to stay. If I stayed here again, it would not be in site 13. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

Campground is convenient to Yosemite NP. It's small with shaded sites. The sites are gravel, with a grassy area, picnic table, and fire ring. The restrooms were clean. There didn't seem to be any heat or A/C, but we didn't need it during our stay. The laundry was reasonably priced. RV sites are mixed in with the cabins, which is good if you camp with someone who prefers cabins. Joe, the owner was very friendly. We'd definitely stay here again. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The good: quiet, clean sites, clean bathrooms. The bad: We asked for a pull-through but they said they could not guarantee them, but there was one available when we showed up...did not get it. Backing in was a bit hairy. LONG drive to Yosemite from here. 38 miles of twisty up-and-down. The road coming up to the park from the valley had the most severe, steep switchbacks we've encountered. 15 MPH all the way up for 5 miles. Wi-Fi was awful and no Verizon at all. Next time we'll go over to Mariposa way to stay. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

This was the closest place we could find to the west side of Yosemite without being in the park and it was a pleasant surprise. There's an older charm to the property and area, and despite the dated bathrooms (which were clean) we liked it. Owner gratefully squeezed us in for two nights so our site was small; others looked much roomier. $1 per load for w/d was great! WiFi is intermittent; don't count on it. We will surely come back here. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

General store & gas station on property. Terrific nostalgic ol' diner 1/4 mile up the road run by same owners - we had 3x breakfast, 1x lunch, and 2x dinner there - clearly we liked the place, food, and the price!

Our experience was good. I loved the surrounding area and the fact of being close to Yosemite made our visits delightful. The park is in a good location, it's small but accommodating, and clean. The sites are gravel and appeared to be fairly level. As previously mentioned, no wifii or cell phone signal so we were prepared. It is a very quiet and quaint campground.

We took the advice of previous reviewers and requested site #15 and were lucky enough to get it. This site is away from the others and private, a really nice site. The park itself is not especially large, but is well cared for and the camp host is friendly. Because we stayed in the off-season, the park was empty and the stores were closed so I couldn't comment on them. The camp advertises WiFi and cable TV, but we were unable to get either to work. That was fine though because I didn't go to Yosemite to watch TV.

This is a nice, clean little RV park and I would certainly stay there again. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is situated in a shady grove of trees between Groveland and Yosemite NP. It is a very quiet park with little highway noise except for log trucks on Hwy 120. The park was spared during the Rim Fire of 2013 by the efforts of the CDF and local fire departments. We camped in site 15 which is a very nice spot away from most of the other sites. Wi-Fi was not good during our stay, only having access 2 of the 3 days we were there. TV reception is good if you have the satellite dish receiver provided by the park. We would stay here again. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

I loved the size and intimacy of the park. Sites were nice size, lots of trees. Internet was bad but I guess that is to be expected out in the country. The directions to the campground was my biggest issue. Definitely DON"T use GPS which the website tells you but it also says to use route J 59. Unless you have a detailed California map, J 59 is not directly off the highway. 99 north is and then connects up with J 59 and the rest of the route would be great. Because we didn't know that, we ended up going up very steep 49 and an extra 2 hours to get there. Bathrooms aren't heated that I could see. Gas is reasonable and there is a restaurant that is very convenient. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

We really enjoyed our time at this small, clean, cozy campground. We visited the other campgrounds nearby, and found this to be our favorite in the area. Friendly and very helpful owner. Old style restaurant with good home cooking just 3 minutes down the road. No cell phone reception on our Verizon phone. Wi-Fi was strong but had a data limit use. Park is 30 minutes from Yosemite’s west entrance. Laundry could use some TLC. Closest grocery store and other restaurants are in Groveland, which is a 15 minute drive. Be sure to utilize New Priest Grade when driving from the west. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
