We love staying at KOAs and trust the name but we were disappointed with this one. What was up with the front desk gal? Not friendly at all. We were promised wi-fi and during our four days we weren't able to get a signal. The front desk gal said they had excellent reception. Could have fooled me. We asked her what time Mass was at St. Joseph's church in nearby Mariposa. She didn't know and said it was either 8:30am or 11:00am. Well if we had wi-fi we wouldn't have bothered her busy day of staring out the front door. At the end of our stay we walked in to return the key to our cabin. She didn't say anything. A good morning would have been nice. I said, "Here's the key." She said, "Okay." She didn't ask us how our stay was. Didn't ask us to come back. Don't worry we won't be back. On the positive side the cabins were fun for the kiddos. Everything is made out of wood including the bunk bed. The room came with a large portable heater that kept the room toasty. There was also a ceiling fan but no air conditioning. It was too cold for us to worry about that anyway. The bathrooms were fairly clean but if you are squeamish about sharing the shower floor with other bathers choose either end shower stall. The water drains to a central drain located in the center shower stall. I can just imagine standing in the center shower stall while other bathers are washing, shaving, and who knows what and having all that dirty water run into the center shower stall. ICK! The bathrooms have hair dryers that worked well, better then some hotel dryers I have used. The area all around the campground was clean. There were some turkeys wandering around and at night you can listen to the frogs croak in the pond. My suggestion: Stay at another campground closer to Yosemite if that is your destination until this KOA takes care of their problems.
