It is my own fault I did not plan ahead so all the lodgings in the park itself was booked. We got a garden cottage. The price is reasonable. The accomodations are quite old, but adequate. Be sure to bring your own supplies and stock up at the Groveland general store because everything at the on site store is very expensive. My main complaint is that although the west gate is 12 miles away, Yosemite village is another 25 miles away. All the roads are windy and narrow and it takes at least an hour and 20 minutes to get to the village. That is almost 3 hours round trip! Even the rainbow pool, which is a lot of fun, is driving distance away. So I most definitely do not believe this to be a base to visit Yosemite Park.
