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.

Tips for other Campers:

It's a long road to and from Yosemite each way. Be prepared for an hour each way.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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 camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Shopping is about 15 minutes away.

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.

Everything was excellent. West Yosemite close by for any needs you may have. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Well maintained grounds. The only drawback was just one bath house. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you want to beat the crowds go early as with all NP's. Most visitor centers busy by 10am.

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.

We were at the top site #15. Beautiful spot, kind of away from the rest. Well kept. Only thing that kept it from a 10 is the Wi-Fi is so slow as to be unusable. No AT&T cell reception. Would stay here again We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

After 4 months of travel, this park was one of our favorites. Nice, well-shaded, gravel spots with lush grass around them, DirectTV, good sized spaces that are quiet in a relatively small RV park and a play area for our kids that is tucked away so as not to disturb other campers. Pet friendly. The only downsides were no fire pits (each site does have charcoal BBQ setup) and being about 14 miles from the West entrance to Yosemite. Wish we were closer. However, considering the benefits of the place and the very friendly staff, we'd be pleased to stay here again for our trips into the valley since our rig is too big to go down there. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We liked this campground because of the good location close to the west side of Yosemite National Park. Some of the sites are tricky and close together. But overall, I think the people who work at the place truly care about it and try to take care of things. The shade was nice, our site was fairly level. My only complaint is that when I called about reservations, I was told they only had one site left that night. When we woke up the next morning, there were only 5 campers in the park. So the "only one site left" story was definitely a lie. I didn't even go in the bathrooms, so I don't know anything about them. They only have a couple of washers and dryers, but they did a great job on the loads we needed to do. There really aren't any amenities like a park/play ground for the kids, but we basically used this as a basecamp for Yosemite so we didn't miss it. We camped at Yosemite Ridge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
