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.

Nice park overall. In the trees and nicely shaded. Larger 50A sites were in the middle and reasonably easy to get in and out. Our site was level gravel with lots of room side to side. Closest decent park to Yosemite. 30 min to front gate, about an hour to Yosemite Village. With our 37' rig, staying in the park wasn't an option. Bathrooms were very clean, especially the ones closest to the park entrance. Good variety in the store, but not inexpensive. We'd stay here again.

Park is situated in a beautiful area. Lots are stone. Park was nearly empty so we didn't have anyone next to us but if we had it would have been very close. If coming from 99 and east on 140 you do not encounter the rock slide as mentioned in another post. If coming west on 140 be aware that the length limit is 45 ft. not 65 as in the previous post. Only 11 sites to accommodate 50 ft. Our Sprint cell didn't work or our WiFi Verizon hot spot. WiFi here was okay. The cable went out mid-afternoon yesterday and has not been restored. Our neighbors told them, as did we, and we were told they'd send someone down. Never happened. If you need milk or ice purchase before arriving. 1/2 gal. milk is $4.59 and a very small bag of ice is $2.50. Price is steep since we couldn't use the pool and no TV, but they have you because this is the only spot close to Yosemite on this route. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.

Beautiful campground. Built on hills but sites level & long enough. Gravel and lots of trees. Restrooms very nice & clean. High priced but they have a captive market. They rent to lots of Europeans who are happy to pay any price. Will stay here again if opportunity comes about. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This KOA is a family business and they are great!!!! It is tight space wise but doable, and very pretty. Very clean, shady and quiet. you can hear road noise going to and from Yosemite, but it is not too bad. Great access to Yosemite and has a couple of nice towns with lots of activities. Would definitely stay again if we ever go to Yosemite again! We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV Park is located about a half hour from the west entrance to Yosemite National Park on Highway 140. It seems to be a popular spot for RVer's that can't get a site in the park with lots of rental RVs. Even when the park is crazy in the summer, I was able to find an open spot on several different dates. It gets hot here in the summer, about 95 degrees in July. This park would not be considered a destination in itself, but can work as a home base for ventures into the park. Just be aware that the valley floor is about 45-60 minutes away, with other points like Tuolumme Meadows much further. Also, due to a rock slide years ago, there are 2 'temporary' bridges on Highway 140 with a total length limit of 65 feet. If you drive a motorhome and tow a dinghy, you can drive them separately and hook up after the detour, which I did. It appears that the detour will remain in place for years to come.

We were initially concerned about staying here given the bad reviews. After staying one week at this park we cannot understand how it got any bad reviews. The staff was friendly, the park was clean and had lots of amenities and plenty of shade trees. The laundry room had lots of washers and dryers and even an iron. The WiFi worked perfectly from our site which was not near the office. The park is about 1/2 hour from the west entrance to Yosemite. We would stay here again and highly recommend this park.

Nice park, although it is on the side of a hill. Staff was friendly. Good size, clean pool with a real deep end (8') which seems to be the exception in many parks. Site (39) was level and long enough to stay hooked up since we were just passing through. It would be a good home base to explore Yosemite, except for the price. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This park is fairly close to Yosemite Natl Park but the site are very close together. We made reservations on-line at the KOA site which we have done for several KOA campgrounds but made an error in the departure date by 1 day. After check-in we discovered the error and went to the office to see if we could add the extra night. We were told there was no availability. The staff member was uncooperative and inconsiderate. She was not happy we had made reservations on-line. Also when we checked in we were charged pet fees for cats without asking us first what kind of pets we had; which has occurred at every other KOA campground. There was no cell reception. WIFI access was not available for three days. After the WIFI became available I checked the KOA web site and found there were available sites for the extra night we wanted. Because the camp staff would not assist us with an extra night we did not wish to stay. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.

Nicest KOA we've ever stayed in. Paved roads and top of the line rocked sites meaning no dirt or mud to contend with. We have a 40 foot RV and the sites are pull through and about double vehicle parking wide. Really nice office and store, laundry, bathrooms, pool, etc. Utilities are very good. No cell service. Location in trees is very nice and were able to use satellite. Mostly quiet and WiFi good. Small dog run but it is sufficient. Beautiful half hour drive to Yosemite from park. Definitely would stay again. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.

On the west side of Yosemite, close in to the park, there are not very many RV parks. We don't really care for KOA's and had to stay at this one since it was the only one we could find closest to the park. It was nice, clean, but as for a KOA: over priced. The main reason we don't normally stay in KOA's. When we checked in, we were told we could only stay one night as there was a group coming in and the rest of the park would be filled after the next day. Good thing, since all we wanted was one night. Even when they have groups coming, they should save a couple of sites for overnighters just in case. It is not right for a group to fill up a whole campground. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.
