First the cons: I have a problem with places calling themselves resorts when they don't provide all services. There was no cable TV, the Wi-Fi was slow at times, and the water pressure was low in the afternoons. The pros were that this is a well manicured campground in a beautiful setting. Nice general store on-site and dinner at Blue Paddle in town was awesome. The pool and clubhouse are beautiful, with a nice library/meeting room/exercise room. The grounds were constantly being mowed and the seasonal site park models were beautifully landscaped as well. We didn't use the bathhouses, but the floors need a serious paint job. We would return if in the area.
We were not happy here because we couldn't connect to WiFi the entire two days, though there were towers right next to us. Also, their online reservation system didn't work. An upgrade is needed. Overnight sites appeared to be in the front area, no trees, but large grassy lots and long pull-through sites. No discounts given.
Cute clean campground with lots of grass for dogs, as well as mowed trails through the field. Laundry was household type where you pay $1/load when finished. Friendly staff and good WiFi. One night of rain with mud. Will return if in the area again.
This was the cutest little campground, very well manicured and lots of grass for our dog, after having spent 5 weeks in the desert. Looks like it used to be a KOA. Everything worked well and we had a pull-through long enough so that we didn't have to unhook for our overnight stay. Will stay again if in the area.
We had been to this campground 5 years ago and were hesitant to return after reading previous reviews. It is still, in our opinion, a great KOA, convenient to downtown and easy to get in and out of from the freeway. Workers were always out pruning, weeding, and cleaning. As far as long-term units, they were off behind the hedge in another section. Dog walk in the area behind the campground next to the river is awesome. Don't miss the daily noontime organ recitals in the Tabernacle or just walk around Temple Square. We will return.
Beautiful campground, fairly new. Don't care for the side-by-side hookups in the pull-thrus, but it seems to be popular. Nice wide interior paved roads. Only complaint is the staff: TL Directory didn't provide directions so we called when we were 100 miles away and were told to take a left off the interstate, after she asked which direction we were going, and discovered it was a right hand turn. She also could tell us nothing about what to see in the area: offered to Google but decided we could do that ourselves. The 12-mile scenic drive in Ruby Mt. Canyon was beautiful!
This campground is awesome, but route 395 is such a scenic route, how can it not be beautiful? Though we didn't use them, the clubhouse and pool area were gorgeous. We did have some garbage in our fire pit the entire 3 days there, though. Seems like it should have been cleaned out before our arrival. Paved roads for the most part, except for what looks like a new section for larger RVs. Views up to Mt. Whitney were awesome. Taking the portal road up the mountain is a must. Breakfast at Alabama Hills Cafe was terrific. Will definitely return if in the area.
BEWARE: the sign at the entrance says "Zephyr Cove Lakeview Cabins" so we drove by, looking for the Resort RV Park sign. We had to turn around in South Lake Tahoe, not an easy task in a 40-fter with the streets jammed for a golf tournament. Interior roads were tight maneuvering, but we had a nice long pull-thru. Price was $65 plus tax, but one would expect to pay that in a resort area. There could be more policing of rules going on. I tried to walk my dog in the designated area, and a tent was set up right on the dogwalk path. Also, tags on site number posts weren't removed when vacated.
O.K. for a couple of nights but it's the only convenient campground to east entrance of Yosemite. Wifi wasn't available for the first day due to complications but worked well, for a fee of $6/day, after it was fixed. Laundry was expensive and clothes didn't dry after two cycles. Nice breakfast at Nicely's. Don't miss Mono Lake guided tour. Probably won't be back in the area but may or may not return.
