If I could give this park a lower rating I would. It is an old, run down Mobil home park with some very narrow spaces. Words don't describe what a bad park this is. Don't stay there if you have a choice. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Yosemite 15 miles away.

We were a little apprehensive about this RV park based on some of the reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. Yes, the sites are a little close together, but we had adequate room. There's no stream, but that's probably due to the severe drought. The sites were all shaded. The bathrooms were clean. The manager was delightful and very helpful. We were there for three nights while we visited Yosemite and would definitely stay there again. There aren't a lot of amenities except free wifi, but we found that all our needs were met. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We are currently on our second night of a three night stay at High Sierra RV. Check-in yesterday was a breeze. In fact, it was probably the quickest check-in/setup we've ever had. The RV park is part permanent residents, part vacationers but the two areas are separated pretty well. The park isn't huge and there aren't a ton of sites, but honestly, it was kind of nice and it has made our stay very quiet. We are in site 42, which backs up to the river/stream and we can hear the trickle from our rig. California is in a major drought right now so there isn't much water in the stream. But, even with the drought, there is plenty of water in the swimming hole, which made my two boys happy! There is a $20 refundable key deposit for the showers, which we didn't use since we have full hookups. The laundry facility is small and there are no frills, but it's clean so there is nothing to complain about. We're rather enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back. The folks that run the place were pleasant enough and helpful when we asked for help/recommendations. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

Very abrupt and rude desk clerk "greeted" us upon arrival. Sites are Very cramped and you are elbow to elbow with your "neighbor". A $20.00 key deposit is required for the rest rooms and is returned when key is turned in. Office hours are 9am-5pm, so if you are breaking camp early you need to keep that in mind. Dump station also has to be unlocked to use. The stream and waterfall area are nice and the frogs singing at night was pleasant. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Tent Trailer.

This is a nice park with spaces along a small "seasonal" river. The roads and sites are gravel. Pay attention to the instructions they provide for coming in as your GPS will bring you in down a very steep road, & their instructions bring you in a better way. The hookups are good, and each site has a picnic table. Many sites back up to the small river & have some shade. Be advised this campground is about 1/2 hr drive to the south gate of Yosemite, but is nearly a 2 hr drive one way to Yosemite Valley Floor & 2 hrs one way to Glacier Point, both are must sees. The road is winding, mountain cliff almost the whole way. We liked it here, but if we return to Yosemite, we will try to camp closer to the Valley. We had a AAA discount. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice clean park, with a very friendly staff. Most of the campsites are next to a stream. In town, but you do not feel like you are. The town is nice with several tourist things to do. It is the closest you can get to the south entrance of Yosemite. Drive to the park entrance is 16 miles, then the drive to the Village about an hour. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

Signage is not very good so finding the park off SIR 41 was not easy. I just happened to see the small sign and directed my husband to make the right turn before we passed it. You then have to go down a very steep narrow road to get to it. The park looks nothing like their website. The stream is practically non-existent so swimming or fishing is impossible. The view from the full hookups is of the utility company across the Fresno River. The sites were so narrow we could barely get our slides out and have enough room to sit outside. Our neighbors hookup including their sewer outlet was right next to where we sat. The picnic table was warped and about to fall apart. This is actually an old trailer park and these residents don't do enough to keep up the appearance of their lots. Old patio furniture, tires, appliances form their landscape designs outside. There is one bathroom and shower facility that everyone shares and the tent campers don't do much to keep it clean. The trash areas were clean and trash was removed daily so that helped. Sites are all gravel and dirt. Only concrete was the little road in and out. This park has the location going for it as it's the best one to use if you are going to do South Yosemite activities and Bass Lake for boating and swimming. I liked being in the town of Oakhurst as there was a Starbuck's and a great Railey's Grocery store. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

All back-in except two. Utilities worked good. Wi-Fi dropped every once in a while. Very plain park for the price (was told the weekly rate went up $100 since I made the reservation in Feb 2013), but is close to the Yosemite South gate. Would look around for another park next time due to that increased rate. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here with friends to visit Yosemite. It's a nice drive from the southern entrance. The Wi-Fi speed was slow, so I didn't use it. The Cable TV worked well. We had a site up near the entrance rather than further in. I would stay there again. We were very comfortable there. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

Super nice staff they were great. Call for directions gps will mess you up. Back in site dirt and level. Plenty of room for tow vehicle. Nice paved entrance. Quiet place would definitely stay there again. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

A convenient located place when you leave Yosemite via the south gate. For a family with three children, the place to be when coming back from hiking trips. A nice rocky river adjacent of the park provides opportunities for the kids to swim. The camping is mainly gravel with not really large sites to camp but this was not really disturbing. Free Wi-Fi, a beach volleyball area and a lot of other families with children made the feast complete. The camp site is a 10 minute walk from the main street of the town where you will find several different types of restaurants. The only disadvantage is that it is really overcrowded in summertime but that goes for all the camp sites in the vicinity of Yosemite. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

Other than dry camping in the park itself, which is hard to get, you will still have a good drive to anything you want to see in Yosemite from just about any private campground. We stayed here a month in our rig. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My biggest complaint would be the size of the sites themselves. They were very tight and you were right on top of your neighbor. Most of the time, it didn't matter too much because there are a huge amount of rental RV's that go through here. They don't tow a car, so even if they stay more than one night, their RV goes with them all day. I can't say much about the river, it's more like a creek, but if you walked down by the campsites there was a small waterfall that sounded nice. We did see several deer, including a buck, lots of birds and some resident ducks. You're close to town and could actually walk there if you don't tow a vehicle. There is plenty to offer in the town of Oakhurst, including a movie theater, a couple of large grocery stores, plenty of restaurants and just about anything else you would need. We also went to Bass Lake several times. It's about a 15 minute drive from here. The lake is very clear and the water was not real cold. We hung out by "The Falls." Didn't see any of those, but it was close and usually not too crowded. The Wi-Fi was usually pretty good, it dropped me a couple times, but that was in a month's time. We didn't use the bathrooms so can't comment on that except to say I saw them being cleaned a couple times each day. I did use the laundry, which was reasonably priced: I think $1.50 for wash & $1 for dry, which was at least 45 minutes, and dried everything, and it was clean. I'm only rating this a 7 because of the small sites and there wasn't much landscaping so you couldn't call this a pretty campground. However, I would recommend it to others. Be sure to follow their RV friendly directions from Civic & Golden Oak off Rte 41. Your GPS will bring you in another direction which is a big hill. Best sites #40, there is no one on your patio side and it seems a little wider; #39, no one on either side, however, the dump station is next to it, but I walked my dog past there plenty of times and never smelled anything, also it is next to one set of bathrooms, so there are people around. I've seen people cut the back corner to use the restroom. One person put yellow tape across to keep people from cutting through. It's under the trees and very shaded. It also got a nice breeze from across the "river" and you could hear the waterfall. #16 was great if you've got a smaller RV or trailer. It's on the end and there is a small grove of trees right next to it. It was the coolest spot in the park during the heat wave. #36 & 34 have more space, but there is a lot of traffic going past them. The river view sites were really nothing, but maybe a small view of the creek like river. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

You get exactly what is advertised. The staff was helpful and friendly. The sites were large enough and clean. We came for Yosemite and the access to the park was easy plus the luxury of a full fuctioning town of Oakhurst right there. We will stay here again. The stream was nice, for our dogs the fox tails are a little brutal. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects internet special. Site level, but a bit difficult to back into. Friendly, helpful staff. Close to Yosemite and shopping. Lovely stream and beautiful trees. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
