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

This is one of the worst parks we have stayed in for the last 5 years, never mind the crazy price! You enter the registration via a steep winding paved road. We are 43' plus tow. The approach road had very tight turns which @ 43' we had front wheels mounting the R curb at the same time the rear wheels and tow were up on the opposite L curb. We paid $79!!! For one of the top 3 Executive pull thru sites #17. After you pull forward from registration Steep slope down into site, big scary trees either side, left side inches away prevented putting slide out and uneven! The RV helper said the site wouldn't work!!! She also said we had to back out because the exit going forward was too tight, and the exit road had collapsed on a tight turn out! We hit the tree on R side exiting. Nightmare! Wife in tears. Only 3 sites for 40' plus. We backed into a 40' site extending out. The whole RV park is an ugly dust bowl! Looks like a Mars landscape! Ugly to look at! Not a blade of grass anywhere, double ugly! We returned from the park after dark. Whole park, entrance and approach in total darkness, scary! Not a single light in the whole park! Cable is so bad it's unwatchable, and they know it. We called the office multiple times between 9 and 10.30 and got answer machine? Went to office and always 2-3 reps??? Internet is unusable. AT&T one bar, but LTE, very slow but usable. The positive reviews are for the cabins, yurts and permanent tents. If you are over 40' avoid at all costs, or risk damage to your unit. As a non refundable pre pay we couldn't wait to leave. avoid, avoid, avoid. - JeffK

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

Ranger was very friendly and made sure we were in our site and car parked off the road. Amazing location, bathrooms have no lights, but was convenient to Wawona Golf Course and Mariposa Grove of Big Trees. - Bob2013

Great NPS campground in the park about 45 minutes from Yosemite Valley. Situated by a nice river (not a lot of water int he fall), the sites are fairly roomy. It's much easier to get reservations here during the season. The price drops to $18 a night and is first come first served after 10/15. - Ugly SAM

This is a nice place to stay outside the valley. Less than a mile away is a hotel where you can have a drink and listen to an awesome piano player most nights. It's not not super close to all the regular tourist things. Not the best place to stay during busy times. It's right by the river. - Ugly SAM

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

General info: This is a no-frills location to camp. It really is no more than a dirt/gravel lot with electricity and water hook-ups (no sewer or dump available on site). No on-site staff, so the payment is do it yourself style by placing a check for the correct amount into an envelope provide where you write your personal info, as well as your vehicle(s) and dates of stay. You then drop the envelope down a mail slot.
The Good: There are large trees nearby that provide some shade. It is very close to the entrance to Yosemite, off of hwy 41. It feels secluded and lonely, but it's well lit. Sites have available wood picnic tables. Checkout time is a generous 6pm!
The Bad: Completely dirt/gravel, so expect some dust in summer or mud during rain/snow season. Poor weed removal maintenance. Upper level has low hanging oak branches, which would probably damage taller rigs. Lower level is fine and easy to maneuver. 30 amp only. Low water pressure. No amenities (cable TV, pool, etc.
If we were going back to Yosemite, we would probably camp here again. It's worth the money for no frills when compared to other parks on our trip. - ADMD

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

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

Spaces are way too tight for size RV being allowed to stay. Wall to wall RV's. Next door Class C backed up on to our fire pit. If I would have lit a fire I would have burnt their RV up. Not park fault, but roads into park extremely bad. - Felix Locum
