Stayed here three nights to visit Yosemite National Park. Probably one of the dirtiest parks I've stayed in. It pretty much gravel and dirt. The park is on many levels and winding road. Fair spacing between sites. WiFi was very poor. Used my hotspot most of the time. - lovingit

We were accommodated by the people at Yosemite RV Resort at the last minute, because our reservation at another park turned out to be a fiasco. The women in the office were very efficient & helpful. I have read the negative reviews about the steep lane leading down to the sites, but I did not find it overly steep, or hard to navigate. They DO have MASSIVE speed bumps, so slow is good. Our site was very nice, but I have to divulge that this was a place to put our trailer for 4 nights, even though we spent the middle 2 nights at a hotel in Yosemite. Still, we were very comfortable in our site the 2 nights we were there. The bath house was spacious & clean. Their water system had a "blowout" the day we arrived, which had been fixed. I was glad we had a pressure regulator on our hose. This park is part of a chain, "RVC outdoor destinations". Based on our experience here, we would return, and we would try one of their other destinations. Coarsegold is a relatively small town, but they have a gas station, & a small food market for necessities. The much larger town of Oakhurst is nearby. - J Mike G

We had reserved our site ahead of time for our club of 10 sites in the same location. However, when they took us to the site, it was too small, So, they moved us to a site of our choice that would accommodate us! We had come to this campground with our children over 25 years ago and what a vast improvement! They are still making improvements to the sites which is wonderful. We will be coming back that's for sure. This campground was in close proximity to Oakhurst, Chuchansi Casino and Hotel, Fresno and Yosemite National Park. Right on the gold trail in California. - letsrv2day

The wifi was unusable at our site. No cable. Nothing here but dirt and weeds. Terrifying road entering and leaving which is brutal on the brakes. Garbage has to be taken to a dumpster by yourself with a super heavy hot lid clipped down. Only two washers. Campground is being closed permanently oct. 31 2017. Only overpriced cabins will remain. The area is so full of ground squirrel holes I rolled an ankle more than once. It's more expensive than a KOA for nothing to do. Crooked, unlevel sites. No shade! - WhiskerCamping

Wanting a spot as a base camp for going to Yosemite, we selected Sierra Meadow. When we called, they were super-busy dealing with a wedding but managed to reserve us a spot. While the road leading to the campsite is twisty, it's really not bad at all. The RV sites are asphalt with grassy areas between them, all fairly level. Ours didn't have a picnic table, but we asked for one and it was delivered quickly. No firepit/grill. Hookups worked well, and there was good WiFi and good Verizon signal. Men's restrooms/showers were under repair, with spotty availability; women's was nice. The laundry room was open and nice. The management people we encountered were nice and helpful. The park was very quiet. We would likely stay at Sierra Meadows again, but not as a base camp to explore Yosemite... it's too far away. - RobtL

Off the beaten path with no frills. If you want to be in the quiet, off the beaten path with basic electric, water, sewer then this is your place. You can get verizon cell coverage because a tower is directly behind us and the wifi is ok. The drive in was slow going but not hazardous. It is only a few miles off the main road but if you want an easy on/off this is not your place. Not much going on, you are on your own to check in and find a spot (places with or without trees for your sat). The roads are not big so there are tight turns in the park to get around but you can make wide, on the grass, sweeps. Very pretty grassy and natural environment. Don;t think we would come back. Not a great value to us. - FrancisandRenee

Not really big rig friendly, but you can get a few on the lower level. This park was put in long before slides so with 4 you will need to overhang into another space. There is an upper section but it is mostly permanents and would not attempt to go up there unless I had a very small RV. The lower level starts off narrow and at the end has room for about 4 larger rigs if you take 2 spaces. Wi-Fi was not working and the water pressure is really low (25lbs), only saw 30 AMP service at the boxes. One of the local members said they were looking at improvements so made the case for re-doing the lower section to be more big rig friendly and adding a dump station (there is no dump station today). - sheltieRV

The other reviews pretty much summed this place up. I just want to add that there is a good strong free wifi signal (I'm using to write this review) available from the Elks Club. The water tastes pretty bad, if you don't have a good filter system, bring bottled water. We called ahead of time to see if space was available and received a return call a short time later. Host said," he never saw the place completely full." Passport America price for non-members is $15.00 a night.. - john5079

Site was fairly level. Water pressure was 42lbs. No OTA and cable channels were very limited. But SAT TV worked well. WiFi was ok but slow. The transient section of the park is separate from the long term residents. Definitely follow the RV friendly directions to the office on thier website. Your GPS will bring you in on a drive with steep hills, Huge speed bumps and leaves you facing the wrong way to get to your site. Easy access to the south entrance of Yosemite (16 miles) but it's another hour plus to the valley from the south park entrance. Only one sort of pull through, rest are back ins but plenty of room to maneuver. - BBGuy

Way to close and should not accept big rigs. Sites to short. Could not put out awning due to neighbor having to back his trailer in at such an angle, that his slide was within 8 inches of our table and the table was as close as we could get it to our slide. Lots of rental rv drivers that caused concerns when driving and parking. - Ed_

This is a small older park which is 16 miles from the south entrance to Yosemite National Park. The best feature of this park is its large cable TV channel line-up, but beyond that don't expect much. Prior reviews pretty accurate. There are 4 possible entrances to this park, 3 of which should be avoided at all cost by larger RVs. GPSs will route you on one of these 3 routes. On the route we chose the angle getting onto the side-street was so steep we scrapped the bottom of our tow bar on the pavement. One road gets you to the office facing the wrong direction so after check-in you have to turn around to get to your site. There should be signs directing RVers away from these 3 entrances. The directions on the park's website and their reservation confirmation email will guide you on the best route into the park and even though this road is torn up (cones mark the potholes), it is best to heed those directions. The mobile home and long term RVers are in a separate section away from the short term. There is only one pull-through for larger rigs but upon leaving this site the driveway heads towards a dead-end with no room to turn around so you have to actually back out about 300 feet. The back-in sites are tight and are gravel over soft dirt and will accommodate all sizes of RVs. Fire rings here pose a concern as they are only 3-4 feet max from the RVs. Utilities well placed and worked as expected. Free WIFI was limited to ½ hr per day but you had to set up an account with Tengo Internet and not worth the aggravation. Most parks provide free unlimited WIFI at reasonable speeds. Full payment required at time of reservation which is also not normal for private parks. - GrandpaDan

Everything was great! When we arrived we were given the basic rules of the campground and we asked questions all of which were answered by our awesome camp host. The place was clean, quiet and very kid friendly.. Our entire group had a lot of fun. We will continue to make Summerdale a family tradition. - Boozam

Summerdale Campground is located in the Sierra National Forest one and a half mile south of Yosemite National Park entrance on Hwy 41. The CG is a single loop around a grassy meadow full of wildflowers and shade for most sites is provided by Cedar, Fir and Cottonwood trees. This campground offers good fishing and cool summertime temperatures. I gave it a 7 rating not because of facilities but because of the setting and site size. All sites have tables, fire rings and grills. About half the sites are 20-footers with the balance being 30 and 40-foot pads. The campground loop is narrow and might be difficult to negotiate for a very long trailer. Motorhomes should disconnect their toads when checking in. The camp host isn't real friendly and is hardly ever around so if you have a need get to him when you see him. Water bibs (with threads) are scattered throughout the loop. Vault toilets. No showers or dump station. The sites are rustic and very pretty and could be a good option for Yosemite NP visitors who don't have a reservation in the Park. Reservations can be made between Memorial Day and Sept 30 but not for a specific site number. This CG qualifies those with a senior discount pass for a $10 rate. - exportman

Campground, is in the Sierra National Forest, on Bass Lake, We only stayed here because we couldn't get a site IN Yosemite
While we made a reservation on Recreation.gov, we checked in to find that the site we had reserved on line, was already occupied and we possibly would not fit into anyways. We were told to go in & find a site, then come back to register, this actually turned out much better for us. Sites are fully wooded with paved parking pads, there are no hookups, but there is a dump station & water fill.
Our site was sort of level, and narrow, strangely laid out as there was a drop off on one side and the road on the other side, the picnic table and fire ring were near the front of the site. Site was well separated from each other.
Bathrooms with flush toilets were clean, but there are no showers.
The campground is laid out on a side hill withing walking distance from the Lake.
Due to the driving distance to Yosemite, I doubt we would stay here again. - bukhrn

Nice state campground off Bass Lake. Walking distance to lake from sites and nearby Forks store and restaurant. Clean site and flush toilets. No showers. Only downside is there are limited water faucets accessible and no hookups. Stayed in sites 20 and 21 and were great for 2 families and secluded. Would stay here again. Cell phone reception was pretty decent. - JLBL

I usually don't post overly negative reviews, but campers must be forwarned about this place. I booked four months in advance. It was a difficult process because they were initiating a new booking system. Despite having booked so far in advance, when we got there, the owner led us in his golf cart back to our "site". It was an uneven patch of dirt, the crest of which was maybe 10' X 10'. The sites in that section are so small, the woman in the next site was using ours for her picnic table & bikes. It wasn't until the owner jumped out of his cart and started moving bikes that we realized THAT was supposed to be our site! We told the owner it wouldn't do, and he directed me to another on the other side of the lane. It was so uneven that when I tried to back into it, the trailer's bumper dug into the dirt. And the owner told me to force my way back regardless, which I didn't do. At that point, thoroughly disgusted, we went back to the front office. The owner, apparently ready to be done with us, did not return. We told the women in the office we were leaving and wanted our money back. They obliged, and when we inquired about options, they suggested another park in Coarsegold, which is where we stayed (good review to follow). The Bass Lake "resort" appears to be a club with seasonal guests. It may work well for them, but transients should stay away. This was the worst site I have ever encountered, to the extent we were ready to camp on the side of the road, if necessary. As we were leaving, I spotted the owner, and told him we were not staying, and that he shouldn't even be trying to rent the patches of dirt he had shown us. He was unapologetic, and wished us good luck. - J Mike G

Park is being worked on. Many trees removed and new vegitatian planted. The park is in good overall shape. Interior roads are paved and pretty well marked. The park is on a hill side and the interior roads are steep. If you are in the winter season: a small snowfall and you will be stuck! The park is quiet and does not have a view or easy lake access. Park wifi was junk. Verizon cell 3 bars and ok. Easy satellite set up. - BrianStacifulltimers

Nice wooded park. There are pull-throughs if you desire easy access, back-ins amongst the trees if you are looking for a more rustic experience. All hook-ups worked well, including cable tv. Clean but small swimming pool, clubhouse, and kids game rooms. Park offers some meals (extra cost but very reasonable) during busy times. Good wifi in certain places within the park, Verizon cell service fair. Certainly not the parks fault, but they did have to cut down a number of dead trees due to the drought years which just ended. - morganhillers1
