We are Resorts of Distinction members so the $7 price is the daily "utility charge" we had to pay upon check in. Very tight back in site. Our neighbors had their slide open which extended into our site. Road noise woke me at 6:30 am. No AT&T cell or internet coverage, and their Wi-Fi was not working. We paid $14 for the utility charge for 2 nights, but left after one night. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very well run park. Managers and volunteers were very friendly and helpful. Main reason it didn't get a 10 is the Wi-Fi was spotty and continually drops you offline. While the showers were large enough and clean, the water never got very hot. We were here for 7 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The rate for C2C was $10/night, but by the time we added 50 amp, cable TV and taxes, it came out to $21.50/night. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Were there before the 'season' began so for a couple of days we were almost the only ones in the park. There are a lot of rigs left parked and used on the weekends only. But they seem to maintain things quite well. Some of the sites are hard to get into because of small trees that don't line up with site lines. Back ins are much better than pull-throughs. Sites are very narrow. But it is a nice park, they were just opening the cafe the weekend we left. Great area, pretty country and an easy drive up to Yosemite. Oakhurst is just down the hill and has everything you need. We stayed under ROD and would definitely go back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We bought a membership to this park and we are very disappointed. As a local RV dealership said, "They are nice to you until you buy into the park." Then they were very hard to deal with, giving us sites we couldn't get into and acting like that was all there was. If you want to stay temporarily, it is fine but very dusty. Winter time has drainage issues. They are rude. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A first class resort in all respects. We stayed using our Resorts Of Distinction membership and paid nothing. I had to list $1 to make the web page accept the review. Great location near Yosemite National Park's south entrance. Located in a ponderosa pine forest with oak, young redwood and other trees plentiful. The facilities are well maintained and activities are well organized. Wi-Fi availability is limited but they are expecting to install more antennae soon to make it available throughout the park. The lake is within walking distance and several services including Post Office are available next door at The Pines Village Resort. All services are about 15 minutes away in Oakhurst. Yosemite's entrance is about 15 miles north on Hwy 41 but Yosemite Valley is about an hour drive on this winding 35 mph road once you enter the park. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Lots of work has been done. New paint, wood stained, trees trimmed, roads in great shape. Kudos to all the workers and managers. Snack bar is open and the cooks do a terrific job. Everything on the dinner, lunch, and breakfast menu is delicious. Don't miss this if you visit. Only thing keeping it from a perfect 10 is the sites need new gravel. A little dusty. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This membership resort now offers free, good quality wifi and has an exercise room. Small but clean pool, nice little store and on-site meals on weekends. Some sites level, "parking-lot" style", others off in the woods. Bass Lake walking distance. I would rate higher but saw issues this visit with site policies. Officially its always first come, first served, but saw issues with confusion in the office and less than polite service from the staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very popular park due to its proximity to Yosemite. The routes to the park are very mountainous. The park is within walking distance to the lake and the nearby resort village with a well stocked market. The office staff and park management are a bit rigid and could be nicer, but perhaps this is how the park is kept so well. Most big rigs and 5th wheels are herded into a small valley in the center of the park where the sites are very small. I closed one of my slides in order to give my neighbor room enough for a picnic table. Most sites in that section are awning to awning, some with slides within inches of one another. The park amenities are nice and all of the visitors to the park were very friendly and welcoming. The Wi-Fi service became weaker as the park filled to the point where I could no longer access the internet. The cable channel selection is excellent including some movie channels. The sewer connections are a bit unique, but posed no problems. There are sites much larger and more spread out in the surrounding wooded areas. If you are good at maneuvering through narrow openings and gullies it is well worth the effort vs being cattle herded into the center section. The park is out of the way, but worth going back to again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good place for Yosemite access, bad for people that need to be "plugged in", because their wifi was too weak to use and cell coverage is nil. Satellite dish pointing difficult (these are mountains with VERY tall trees.) "Fenced dog run" quite a joke: it's about 20 feet square. We had to put our awning away so the MH next to us could extend his slideout. Very friendly and chatty fellow RVers. None of the "amenities" (snack bar, store etc.) open except on weekends. Loved the town of Oakhurst: great shopping and eating. Bathrooms could use updating (raw crumbling concrete) and heat. We'll come back because it's so close for visiting Yosemite. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice park. My only complaints are that we are AOR members and upon check-in, we were advised of an additional $4 a day charge (our reservation rate is $8 a night confirmed). So we have an issue with that, and apparently AOR has had problems with that happening in the past. Next is they have very few pull-throughs for large rigs. It's filled with smaller rigs as it is first come basis. So this park is best described as a back in park, with close proximity if you have slides. Feel that knowing this before you arrive, is sometimes better than the element of surprise-no pull-through sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a "member" park. Park has done a lot of work in the last year with new paved roads and WiFi and improved cable TV. However, cabins need a lot of work and sites need new gravel or paved. Wifi is weak at best. Water pressure is quite low in some areas of park. These items dropped my rating from 9 to 7 this year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Membership resort, we were comped as perspective members. Located in the woods, some sites tricky to get into. Excellent amenities, pool, store, game room, activities. The amenities are the highlight of this park. Some staff members were rude, that is why I did not rate higher. Bass Lake is close, but this is not lakefront. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is in a great location! Near Bass Lake and 45 miles south of Yosemite. Lots of great ammenties and activities for the kids. The staff is friendly and helpful. However, the sites are small and difficult to get into. The pull thur sites are stacked on top of each so you don't have much room to use you pop outs properly. Do NOT arrive on a Saturday! We made that mistake and we had to wait until Sunday to get a better site. If you come, there's a waterfall about a mile down the road. The rocks are slick so kids will have fun sliding down them. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice state campground off Bass Lake. Walking distance to lake from sites and nearby Forks store and restaurant. Clean site and flush toilets. No showers. Only downside is there are limited water faucets accessible and no hookups. Stayed in sites 20 and 21 and were great for 2 families and secluded. Would stay here again. Cell phone reception was pretty decent. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I was a member here for a couple years. Read all the reviews. Agree with most. Our take is Bass Lake offers a lot of activities. A lot to do: trails, fishing, take the boat out, Pines Village. If you have a car go to Oakhurst and Coarsgold, and Yosemite. The campground can be noisy and what the other member said, the staff can be really rude. They really try to sell you a membership if you are not a current member. Wish they would spend the due money on improvements. It is true sites can be hard to back into. Lots of trees and a small hike, but it's scenic. The manager can be rude and direct at times. You have to come right back at him. It is a nice campground and we would go back. Gets real crowded during the holidays, but what campground doesn't. Have to book way in advance. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would give it a 10 if the site has hookup. Beautiful and clean. Bass lake is 100 yard away. I've been to many lakes and Bass lake is definitely up there. The road to the campground is very twisty so drive slow. Site is on asphalt with generous space. Lots of trees. The only thing I don't like is they put rocks around the campsite which make it hard to navigate around. This campground is 40 minute from Yosemite Valley, which makes it an ideal location if you cannot find a campsite in Yosemite. Dump station is 5 minutes drive from the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed on site #39 which was fairly flat but there's only room for 2 tents, the others are located in uneven ground. The bathrooms were about 70' from our tents and one was flooded and filthy, the other was OK. Since lots of people were using those toilets (flush) sometimes there was a wait. It was an easy walk to the lake which is very beautiful but rather small. We went on Labor Day weekend and there were lots of boats all over with noisy sea-dos. Also lots of people on the trails. There's a quiet time from 10PM but it was not enforced and people partied until the wee hours of the morning. No one told them to be quiet after 10PM. The parking attendant was checking the sites every day without failing. There were limited parking spaces per site and each car must be registered. Overall it was good, but I personally like quiet campgrounds. We camped here in a Tent.
Beautiful heavily wooded location. Some sites have a view of Bass Lake. Adjacent to Millers Landing which offers showers, store, marina, and grill. They have sites which can accommodate a 40 footer, but it will be a tight squeeze both on the road and in the site. The friendly camp host sells firewood and each site has a fire ring. No hookups, and bring a water-thief to fill your tanks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
