Great location, very clean and quiet. It was very easy to find, right on the highway. We barely had to pack anything, they provided almost everything from linens to dishes and utensils to coffee and a BBQ. We had planned to go Yosemite, but we decided to just stay at the cabins. The kids were able to play outside and...

The room was a little small, and not being familiar with the area, I'd not have stayed so far outside Yosemite had I realised the driving distance to the valley village. It was clean. The futton bed might be a bit hard for some and making it upon arrival was a bit of a hassle. One plus is that the...

Thank you for your mostly positive review. Just a few comments to clarify some comments. Yes, the cabins are small but so is the price! There are many motels and hotels in the area where you can get 2 beds for $179.00 to $220.00 per night. Our Camping Cabins are primarily for up to 2 guests, staying a night or...

We were lucky enough to stay in the Miner Cabin for a few days while exploring Yosemite NP as part of a roadtrip around the US. After weeks of staying in parks all around the country, Yosemite Ridge was by far the best! The cabins were clean, well-equipped and made us feel right at home! Between the friendly and knowledgable...

The cabins have direct TV and all...

I reserved a family cabin over 1 month in advance. When I checked in I did not get the cabin as shown on their web site. I requested the cabin in the picture on the web site but they were being painted. I was not unhappy. When I made the reservation with Joe, I told him I was checking out...

Mike, You are correct that you didn't get the Loft Model Family Cabin pictured on the website but one of the new Family Cabins with bunk beds. As you were one person we didn't think you would have a problem with that and as you mention you are 70 and handicapped so probably wouldn't have used the steep stairs to...

We went searching on the internet for a campground near Yosemite when we left Reno and found this campground. Boy, we are so glad! The owner and staff could not have been more accomodating and friendly. We enjoyed the campsite they recommended to us and our planned three day stay turned into a full week. The facilities were immaculate. We...

We stayed in this cabin during the labor day long weekend. We were 2 couples. We got the FC1 cabin. This cabin was designed so as to be sufficient for a small family. There is a bed room good for 2, and a bunk bed for 2. Our friends slept on the futon in the other room. I had read...

We completely enjoyed our stay. Joe and his staff made us feel like family. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and safe. We were so close to more than I expected. We had dinner in Groveland and were able to make a short trip into Don Pedro to visit family who were camping for the holiday weekend. I have already bragged...
