Starting with the phone call for a reservation, and continuing when we checked in, the employees have an attitude. Then when the WiFi wouldn't connect (it's Tengo, the worst service on the planet), their attitude was "well, it works on my phone." Many of their cable connection are male (should be female). At the office, they have double female adapters, if you ask for one. Sites are not level, and roads are narrow. To register, you have to drive to the back of the park, register, then turn around and go to your site (which you passed on the way in). They only recycle plastic bottles and aluminum cans. Other than that, the facility is nice. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place to stay to see Yosemite National Park. Front staff very friendly!
Very nicely landscaped and nicely layed out.
Rock drives and had to do some leveling.
Will definitely return. Very safe area and close to a nice town with shops and restaurants.
We were in a 35' motorhome with tow and had a pull through spot. Wifi worked great too! Picnic table and grill at each site. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.

While another overpriced KOA, this one is the nicest/best value we've stayed. Sites are gravel, well-placed and level. Service/staff was good, and as previously mentioned, the entrance is a bit quirky - uphill, circle right around a tree, and back downhill to your RV site. WiFi worked well, albeit slow in the evenings; but that seems to be the norm at most parks. If you have a big rig and plan to visit Yosemite, this campground is a good option, as you will unlikely find anything suitable in the NP. KOA to Yosemite Village is 37 miles -- about an hour. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
26 miles to Yosemite west entrance. Pioneer Market in Mariposa is pretty awesome. Highly recommend this grocery if one needs to stock up on anything/everything.

Sites are very close together as the park is laid out on the side of a hill. Overall, a nice park and close to Yosemite. Wifi was Tengo Internet and was out most of the time we were there. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.

Good KOA with sites cut into a hill side giving a spacious feel to your camp site. The Wi-Fi is usable and all other utilities function good. The restroom and laundry are very clean. There is a nice dog run. Less than a hour from Yosemite this KOA is high priced but a fair value giving its location. We would stay here again. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.
In Mariposa, check out the Happy Burger Diner for breakfast and Castillo's for some great Mexican foods. Also in Mariposa, Prospectors Brewing has some super good and flavorful brews.

The dense, pull-thru sites are terraced down a hill from the office. We had just enough room for our 30' airstream and crew cab truck. The site was level, no cable, satellite was blocked by trees. From what saw, this is the closest big-rig park to Yosemite's southwest entrance. All utilities worked fine. Pretty campground. Dog friendly. There are permanent bbq grills at each site. Our neighbor's grill was so close to our camper that I had to put in one of my awnings for fear that it would catch fire. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Travel Trailer.
Gas and food available at Mariposa about 10 minutes away. The Yosemite valley park entrance is approximately 1 hour away on a well-paved but twisty road. This road was beautiful but challenging in a 3/4 ton crew cab truck after a long day of walking/hiking through Yosemite.

Our rig is 43', we barely fit, this is a tight campground, not a lot of big rig sites, but worth the effort. The owners were excellent, I asked them to cut a few big limbs from close by trees, they did it without question. They serve excellent ice cream and have pizza available. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.
A good restaurant in Marisopa is "Savoury's", only open for dinners.

Stayed here for 2 nites to experience Yosemite Park. The RV sites were terraced up a hill to the office at the top. You must make a u-turn at the office and back down the hill to your site. Sites were level and all utilities worked fine including the free wifi. It was a little pricey but closest park to Yosemite entrance. Large shade trees. Beautiful quiet location. Would stay again. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
Check out Hetch Hetchy. It is part of Yosemite but has separate entrance and is day use only. There is a large man made lake with a waterfall. There is an easy 1.5 mile walk to the base of the waterfall. This area of the park is almost free of tourists.

One night before heading into Yosemite. Beautiful setting. Steep driveways but negotiable. Check-in was easy. No shared hook-ups. No cell phone service with AT&T. Tengo internet provided. Cable TV with 22 channels. Made to order pizza available. Nice store. Laundry had enough machines, $2 to wash and $.25 for 7 minutes to dry. Even though the store was still open until 8:30, laundry hours were 9AM to 6PM. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.

Closest park to Yosemite - although it is still a long winding drive, with no access to Yosemite for rigs over 45'. The sites are a little tight, but not too bad. Park is big white gravel, sites are stepped up the hill so they are mainly level, although the gravel makes footing a little difficult. Roads are narrow, but navigable. Note: sites have sewer hookups, but are septic-tank based, so you can only dump if you are using a specific type of tank chemicals - Eco-save, Pure Power, or Piranha, otherwise you have to use the dump station at the bottom of the hill. The KOA website did not mention that fact, although the information was on our e-mailed reservation confirmation. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed Happy Burger Diner, down the road in Mariposa.

Clean grounds with an awkward entrance road going straight uphill. Sites are treed and graveled. Our site had a steep, slippery hill side on the utility side and our picnic table just fit between the hill next to us and our motorhome. There is a small, fenced dog park at the bottom of the hill. The campground has free wifi which worked well but no cell phone connectivity. There are numerous camping cabins, nice, flat tent sites and several multi-room tents for rent. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.

A lot of work went in to carving out this campground on a hill between trees. The entry road is narrow and a 180 degree turn has to be made at the office. Access to the pull-through sites is back down another very narrow road. The sites are terraced as they step down the hill. To be close to level at the rear of the site I needed to unload the car and disconnect the dolly, as the front of the site dropped off. This is a no phone zone but the Wi-Fi was OK. For the TV cable to connect bring a female/female gender changer as the cable end is male. The friends we met here were in a tent and this park had the combination of sites for all needs. A nice park on a hill in the trees and as long as you are ready for tight and narrow even big rigs can fit in. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.

Price quoted was for W/E only. Very narrow roads, with the office at the top of the hill. Limited cable and a small fenced dog area. Friendly staff and lots of shade. Just 23 miles from Yosemite NP entrance. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.

The park has a wonderful setting, and enjoys close proximity to Yosemite. It is well maintained, and seems to have all the amenities one would look for. We stayed for 4 nights, and enjoyed the other guests (mostly European) and the beautiful setting. Not surprisingly, there is little phone signal (actually none for Sprint). The Wi-Fi hooks up and works beautifully at 5 AM when there are few other users. At other hours of the day, we found the Wi-Fiunableto be of any assistance. The office people explained that the service was being provided by Tengo and, after all, we were up in the mountains. The lovely and clean bathrooms had 3 showers, and are likely capable of keeping up with the customer demand. Problem is, the showers sometimes don't work. The office people explained they were well aware of the problem and you just need to move a lever up at the shower head (they had no idea why customers insisted on turning them off up there). As I am still employed, I won't be able to stay at the Midpines KOA in the foreseeable future. I must have a decent phone signal OR functional Wi-Fi so that i can field and reply to customers. Lovely physical setting, though. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate is KOA discount and as usual high for what you get. The road in is about 15 ft wide. It serves as the entrance road and the road to your site. Thank goodness we didn't meet anyone going to our site. It is so tight in the park, we had to disconnect our 40 ft and tow at the office to make the turn back. Site was level and gravel and utilities were good. We did have to provide our own coupler for the cable connection. Site was rather short for a pull thru which was difficult to get car out of the road. Sites were extremely tight. With cars having to park sideways in front of their RVs, you either have to back out and up the hill to exit or ask a neighbor to move their vehicle. The staff was not pleasant. It was a "take it or leave it" attitude. If back in the Yosemite area, we look elsewhere. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.
