This beautiful campground is located on Highway 120 about 5 miles from the entrance to Yosemite National Park. Super easy check-in and like most Thousand Trails parks, guests choose their own site. We stayed in back-in full-hookup site #100 and the tree shade was excellent. Leveling was a bit of a challenge for our 28 foot class A RV though. There are lots of pull-through sites in other areas but none of them have tree shade. Finding a site next to the river is just about impossible unless... Read More

This beautiful campground is located on Highway 120 about 5 miles from the entrance to Yosemite National Park. Super easy check-in and like most Thousand Trails parks, guests choose their own site. We stayed in back-in full-hookup site #100 and the tree shade was excellent. Leveling was a bit of a challenge for our 28 foot class A RV though. There are lots of pull-through sites in other areas but none of them have tree shade. Finding a site next to the river is just about impossible unless you get insanely lucky. Bathroom #4 was very clean and well maintained. A country store is located about 1 mile from the campground. It has basic supplies and gas pumps. 10% discount on in-store purchases for Thousand Trails members (alcohol excluded.) A decent sized grocery store is in Groveland about 20 miles away. We tried several fun hiking trails inside the park during our stay. Lots of places to bike as well. Warning: there is no cell service at this campground. You have to drive almost 2 miles for AT&T or Verizon. To find a signal, turn left out of the campground on Highway 120. Go a little over a mile and then turn right on Sawmill Mountain road. Look for a sign that says "Sawmill Mtn Area." Then drive about 100 yards and there is a small turnout to the left near a green gate. Look for the fake tree with light brown bark that is actually a cell tower. The complimentary laundry room wifi was terrible. We did not try the optional paid wifi. The nearby Evergreen Lodge has excellent food and terrific wifi! To get there, turn right out of the campground on Highway 120 going towards Yosemite. Drive about 4 miles and then take the left turn to Hetch Hetchy Reservoir. Campground lodge was closed due to Covid.

The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the area natural Yosemite forest. The sites for day guests were separate from the longer term and members of Thousand Trails. They were more dusty and many were closed with signs that they were under repair. There is zero cell reception and zero Internet unless you walked to a central building where you could get a free service. There was supposed to be a paid Internet and the antennae were visible thru the area but it was out of service.... Read More

All in all it is a nice, clean, well run RV park, and you should expect to rough it a bit in the mountains. But it could be a lot better. Perhaps after the Covid-19 pandemic it will be back.

Very convenient place to stay if you are going to the park. Just 5 miles away from entrance. Facility is clean but a bit primitive. Gravel and dirt camping area for non-members. First come, first serve so no reserved spaces. Very friendly staff.

Located about 14 miles outside of Yosemite off of Highway 120 - Yosemite Lakes is a Thousand Trails park which is affiliated with our RPI membership. The park is clean with full hook ups for RVers and tent campers. There are also cabins and yurts available for rentals. Sites are available by the river, under trees or in the sun - if you prefer. The only real complaint was the number of flies that always want to hover around your head. The Country Store is about 1/4 mile away on Hw 120, but their... Read More

The Country Store is about 1/4 mile away on Hw 120, but their gas is very expensive - about 40 cents more per gallon than in Groveland. However, it has a good variety of items - wine, RV accessories, and souvenirs. This is a family oriented park with a 9-hole mini golf course, badminton, volleyball, basketball, a swimming hole in the river. NO CELL PHONE SERVICE and in the lodge VEEEEEERY slow wifi!

Great time of year to go. Temps mild during day, cool at night. Able to use fire rings and be outdoors all day. Grounds very clean and very quiet as it was not heavily occupied. Staff quiet and responsive. No issues to speak of. Covers all types of camping. Not a concrete jungle which we were happy to see. Gas station and store close by; town w/ restaurants nearby. Easy drive to Yosemite park entrance. About a 1 hr drive into Yosemite Valley floor.
