We stayed for 3 nights. Seemed to be a little pricey for what you get, but then you are in a popular tourist area. Tight spots to get backed into with a 34' trailer, better be a good backer. Driveways are gravel, site pads are mostly dirt, but level. Each power pedestal serves both a right side/left side connection, not sure our unit slides/awning would have even had enough room had there been a unit in the adjacent site. We had power issues, receptacles got hot and breakers tripped when our load exceeded 20 amps on a 30 amp service, they need to do some maintenance on their power pedestals. Water, sewer, cable tv, and wifi all worked fine. Picnic tables and a fire ring/grill is at most sites. Friendly staff, good adequate laundry facilities. The short term rv sites are located along a river, although there was no water running during our visit. Other long term rv sites and mobile homes are on a hill above this park, but we had no issues with them. Great location for access into Yosemite National Park. Evenings and nights were quiet during our stay, however just across the river is a public skate park and an industrial equipment yard. The equipment started up every morning we were there and made noise from 5:45am to 6:30am. One morning during our stay the trash truck ran around 4:30am and I think the driver was mad that he was the only one working during that time as he made sure the entire neighborhood was woke up. We would stay here again as long as it was during their off season like this trip was. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Great seafood restaurant named Crab Cake just a few blocks above the park.

Very nice park for staying outside the south west gate of Yosemite. The park is not too special or fancy so don't go looking for frills. The spaces were clean and enough room to feel comfortable. The park staff are real friendly and keep the park clean. Easy check in and also easy to book online. Park is close to Highway 41 for easy access and close to food and shopping. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Use the directions given on the website not GPS for easier entry to the park.

This place is average at best, but it was the closest thing we could find to be at the south entrance of Yosemite, so beggars can't be choosers. The worst thing about the place is that two rigs share a utilities station, so one forwards in and the next backs in. Our front door was less than 20' from the neighbor's door, and when they parked their car in front of their door, we wouldn't have been able to put our awning out - it would have been over their car. Our two fire rings and picnic tables were five feet apart; not acceptable for a true camping experience. Oh, and this was all 3' from our door. A $20 deposit to use the bathroom/showers seemed a bit ridiculous - never seen that before in 50+ campground stays. No frills... vegetation wasn't nice to look at. Behind the really-low-water-because-of-the-bad-draught "river" is an industrial complex or two, so the view is bad. I hate to give a bad review that might hurt someone's business, but we really didn't care for this place and will pass it by the next time. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A FABULOUS place to eat in Oakhurst is Dicicco's, less than a mile from the campground. Best Italian I've had in a year!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
