Great experience! We stayed 4 nights and found this park to be very clean and nice. Very nice landscape with plenty of trees and grass along with nature’s beauty was spectacular.
The park personnel were very helpful and just great. Bob, the maintenance guy, was very helpful and quick to meet our needs with a slight satellite issues we encountered. I have never had someone respond so quickly. The owner, Joe, came by one evening while we were playing cards at the picnic table just to see how we were enjoying our stay – it was a pleasant surprise to see an owner care so much!!! Suzy, in the little store, was so happy and bubbly – she made me laugh everything I came in for some Big Stick popsicles.
Since it was my boyfriend’s first trip to this area, we were in need of a centrally located place to stay. This park fit the bill as a hub for exploring the area. Rainbow pools is just a quick 5 minutes down the road, Yosemite gate is 20, Buck Meadows which has a great super market is just 15 and BEST YET, Yosemite Ridge has a wonderful restaurant! We took advantage of both cooking and enjoying someone else cook for us
We stayed in the Lodge Pole cabin and I cannot say enough about how beautiful it was - all natural wood and lodge pole furnishings with a 32” flat screen LCD. It had a master bedroom, bunk beds and a loft which was great. There were 4 adults and we were very comfortable. The outdoor grill that is provided was great for cooking our yummy steaks.
We will be back for sure. Planning an even BIGGER trip in May so we can white water raft as well! Can’t wait!
