Great campground with lots of fun activities. We enjoyed the pool, walks, and proximity to Yosemite Pines. Natural setting with amenities - got to love it!

We stayed at Yosemite Pines with my husband and three children. The campground and rv resort is set among pine trees and terraced into the hillside with gravel roads. Great place for the kids as they thoroughly enjoyed the petting zoo, gold mine tour, and movie night! The resort has a really nice pool and tot lot. Although they didnít have a gym my husband worked out on the fitness bars which had pull-up and chin-up equipment out in the woods. Although the resort is about a half hour to 45 minute drive to Yosemite National Park, itís a very scenic drive. The waterfalls were great and the whole family had a great time. We returned each night to Yosemite Pines exhausted and either did the movie night or told stories around the campfire. The bathrooms and laundry areas were clean. Yosemite Pines had a small store where you could buy basic foods, snacks, and beer. The town of Groveland is a neat little historic town and we usually bought groceries there.

The location is superb... towering pines, great topography, forested mountains, close to the most spectacular park in the world. The cabins are to die for... we've never seen better lodging of its type anywhere (we didn't stay in one, but the manager showed us a couple since we were interested in seeing them for a return visit). The park is large with lots of varied areas, and the sites were comfortably level and sized, with steady voltage from the pedestal, great water (very clear ice cubes), top-notch Wi-Fi, and a great store on-site. It's a solid "10". We love the great outdoors, dramatic natural beauty, and off-the-beaten-path places, and Yosemite Pines was about as good as it gets from our point of view.

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Yosemite Pines in of the luxury cabins. The cabin had a loft which the kids loved. Fully furnished with dishes and utensils which was nice. Kids loved the petting zoo, gold mine tour, and panning for gold. The resort is about a 1/2 hour to Yosemite National Park. Manager was friendly and helped us out.

They treated us badly. Gave us a site that our rig couldn't fit in and didn't offer any help in the matter. I could go into into it more, but we are all at the mercy of rv parks that try to make a booking regardless, we traveled 7 hrs only to turn around and look for another campground. It messed up the rest of are trip. Then to add insult to injury they wanted to keep the deposit, they said it wasn't there fault we didn't fit.

This park is on a red clay hillside with very little gravel in the sites and if there's any moisture, you'll have to leave your shoes outside or face terrible, permanent carpet stains from the sticky clay that will mound up on your shoes. We had to use 4 wheel drive to get into our site because of the way the sites are positioned--but not all sites are as difficult. The bathroom by the pool and rec. room was filthy, but the upper one by our site was clean. The staff is curt and acts as if they couldn't care less if you ever return--which we won't be doing, even if we do come back to Yosemite. I called for reservations and was rudely told to "hold on", while I heard the clerk carry on a lengthy conversation with a camper. I finally gave up after using way too many cell minutes and made reservations online--but beware, if you make them online, they're totally non-refundable which was not a problem for us--just a warning. We needed quarters for the dryers to finish up our laundry and asked to buy a roll. The clerk told us we'd have to drive to Groveland to get quarters. Apparently the campground doesn't own the machines and they don't care whether you can use them or not. While it's probably not the worst campground we've seen, we have been on the road for 6 weeks all over the West and have stayed in so many wonderful ones that this one was very disappointing. On a positive note, they did offer free wi-fi and had very basic cable.

Lynda and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It is a nice quiet park with friendly and helpful staff. They have a small petting farm as well as gold panning in the park which is great for kids and kids-at-heart. They also have a store and air station available on site. Sites are gravel but well maintained The town of Groveland is only a few minutes away for shopping and exploring. The Iron Door Saloon is a great stop for a cold one and some good food. According to the sign inside it is the oldest operating saloon in California so has some rich history. Yosemite Valley is about 40 miles from the park.

First off we were not in an RV so we stayed at a cabin. The cabin was brand new, clean and was fully equipped. Cupboards were full of plates, utensils, pots/pans etc, a nice surprise. The previous owners apparently had let the place run down. The new owners have put a lot of money in renovating and adding to the park. The Smiths (park managers) are very nice and accommodating people. They went out of their way to make our stay there enjoyable. We had previously stayed in a tent at pines campground (Stanislaus national forest campground) past 3 days and were soaked. This was dec 25th-27 of 2004 when the storms came. We were forced to change our plans of tenting it and had to retreat to a cabin. When they heard we had some wet equipment the smiths generously let us use an out of the way heated room to hang and dry our stuff. That saved us from having smelly mildewed equipment. The park is going through some growing pains due to change of ownership but it is in the name of increasing facilities. They are getting the improvements done during the slow winter months to impact the guests minimally. Propane is still from a tank outside the cabin. The gas company has been digging around to install gas pipes so a bit of mud off to the side. The friendly park staff and management more than made up for that bit of mud. Everything seems brand new from the cabins, the store, even the deck and railings. We enjoyed our stay and will return when we are in the area. We recommend the park highly.
