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

Near the end of a 4,000 mile/4 month trip, we spent a couple of nights at Park of the Sierras. We've been Escapees members for several years but this was our first time at one of the Escapees co-ops. It was so wonderful that we wished we could have stayed several weeks. It was very peaceful and clean and the people were wonderful. The laundry room was really great. There were activities I would have loved to participate in, but our time was too short. What a wonderful 'refuge!' - MaryinPrescott

Here is a beautiful park nestled in the foothills outside of Yosemite. The sites are spacious with shade and beautiful plantings everywhere. With the hills, few sites are side-by-side at the same level. Staff is friendly and helpful with guide to site. Huge clubhouse, lots of activities, even their own television channels on cable. If we were to "purchase" a lot in an Escapees park, this would be the place. - rfmscat

We have been members for a number of years, but had never stayed in a park. Started out with one week, ended up with four. Lovely site on a corner lot. Everyone was very friendly, the cat loved the birds and squirrels running around outside, and didn't see any snakes! People were very friendly. We had to pay for our electricity, but it only ran about $38 per week, which was due to air on continually. Very hot there. Would come back but only in the spring and fall. Yosemite is about an hour's drive - take 140 up along the Merced River. Falls were full. We were very comfortable there except the heat. - WSKeifer

Beautiful and quiet. Just the way we like it!! Barhrooms old but clean. Showers free with good pressure and hot water. - MSSW

Overall a good campground for visiting Yosemite and Sequoia national parks if you wish to be away from the crowds . Very quiet and hidden with excellent water and electric, No sewer Wi-Fi or cable. Plenty of OTA channels. Gated and locked at night and patrols by national park service. Bathrooms and showers need a good cleaning. Would stay again. - Biggyrat

Nice campground with great views of Hensley Lake. Unfortunately in 2017 the lake is very low. Located in the desert so don't be surprised to see lots of dry dead grass as you enter the campground. Great central location to drive to both Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks. Long but scenic drives. - Kansas Traveler

Like most COE campgrounds, this one is well off the beaten path. Twenty miles from Chowchilla. Avenue 26 out of town is very rough. Have to run slow! We stayed 8 days over the Labor Day weekend and the place was packed till Monday then we were one of only two people there. It was wonderful! Our site was hard to level the unit but a lot of them were more level. Big site with awning over the big picnic table. Nice fire ring. Our cell service (Verizon) and hotspot worked well. The Volunteers were GREAT! We saw them patrol the park regularly and very friendly. The park is also patrolled by the Sheriffs department. (I was stopped and warned for not using my seat belt.) Morgan, the park Ranger was more then helpful. He spent more then 30 minutes standing in the hot sun telling us about how the water level fluctuates more than 40 feet during the year. No sewer but the dump station was convenient and easy to use. My only complaint is the big scratches down the side of my unit. My RV is 13ft tall and the branches are only 12ft off the ground. Make sure you have all the supplies you need. It is twenty miles to town. - Roamer on wheels

This campground is well kept. It has some 50 amp sites which is helpful when you stay there in the middle of summer like we did (testing out a new motorhome). There are a few sites with full hook ups. - Mark 5252

This is a beautiful park indeed IF you want to get away from the city and enjoy the great outdoors. Facilities were spotless. All hookups were fine. The price is great. Dump station is easy to use. There is plenty of hiking, walking and fishing to keep you busy. Be prepared for: rough roads going out to the park, no wifi, very sketchy wireless service and active rattlesnakes. Just be prepared. We stayed here for 8 days and enjoyed everyday knowing that you must be vigilant and watch the trail or road in front of you. This campground would be a 10 if the roads were a bit better getting there. Its worth the trip!! - Beech35p

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

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

We camped here on April 1 and 2 in #116. First the positives: great bathrooms, spacious sites, beautiful lake view, and the space to back our pop-up camper was just right. Negatives: the host was rude. There were kids next to us who were late getting out and he was very rude to them. Also, no one comes around to clean up the sites after people check out. I don't understand why they make you check out at noon and new people can't check in until 2 if they're not cleaning the sites. There was all kinds of trash left behind and no one came to clean up. The other negative was the trash at the dumpsters. We got there Saturday afternoon and the dumpsters were already all pretty full then. By the time we left Sunday night the dumpsters were OVERFLOWING and there were bags of trash on the ground around the dumpsters too. The wind was blowing so the trash was blowing all over. Mostly it is a very nice campground and I recommend it. Just be sure you're out by noon or you'll get yelled at. - Lori LCSW

Booked through ReserveAmerica. There are few RV parks in the area and the only one decently rated (Blackstone) said they did not have room. I needed to be in the area for a family matter or I would not have stopped in Fresno.
Our GPS instructions dropped us off in the middle of the road with no campground in sight. This was a winding mountain road. We continued on and found the closed ranger station a few miles up ahead with a sign saying "Campground 2.5 miles". There was no more information to pick up. I wound up taking a photo of the posted signs on my iPhone, then we followed the road to find a really nice set of campgrounds. The RV area was a mile or so further on.
All sites are back-in, with a steep grade down. We tried several in our 35-foot diesel pusher MH but could not get level. We wound up just not leveling, so the whole time our back end was lower than the front end. We saw a few other MH that had gone in front end, but we would not have been able to reach the sewer with our current equipment.
This park had a lot of RVs, but the campsites around were mostly empty. This made for a nice area to walk our dog and we wound up using those bathrooms because they were clean and the RV park filthy. - Slkeyes

This review covers the Meadows camping area of Millerton Lake SRA. The Meadows area has the RV/hook up sites. Full hook ups, W/P/S are in the RV Loop, sites 120-144; sites 117, 118 and 119 have W&P, no sewer, but there is a dump station that you pass on the road to Meadows. The RV sites are arranged in a loop.
Sites 120-144 are basically just large asphalt spaces. Plenty of room for an RV and a large vehicle or two small vehicles parked either in front of the RV or along side if you don't want to put out the awning.
Behind the RV site, off asphalt is a picnic table and fire ring. Sites 132, 133, 120 and 144 are ADA sites. There is quite a bit of extra room at these sites, and the picnic areas also have a wood canopy over the picnic area.
Sites 117-119 do not as much asphalt as the other RV sites and also have the picnic canopy. These sites will still accommodate a large RV. Sites 117-119 more closely resemble a campsite than the other asphalt full hookup sites.
The camp host is at the entrance of the RV loop.
There are bathrooms/coin operated showers at each end of the RV loop. I didn't use the showers, but I noted that they were clean and attended to. All bathrooms and showers are individual rooms.
The non-RV sites all have water (spring loaded spigot, no threads) and are ample and all seem to have canopies. If you don't absolutely have to have power and sewer and can get buy with water in our tank, these sites are actually very nice, some overlooking the lake.
As of 4/3/2016 the lake is nearly full again with the water level just shy of the spillway. When the snow cap melts later in the Spring the lake will probably release water.
The comfort station at the entrance to the loop has a water machine similar to what you see in front of supermarkets, .50 cents a gallon. The machine also sells ice, 8 lbs for $5.
The roads to the campground are in good shape.
No WiFi, but cell service (Verizon) had a strong signal. - Jmaellis

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

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

We stayed on site #39 which was fairly flat but there's only room for 2 tents, the others are located in uneven ground. The bathrooms were about 70' from our tents and one was flooded and filthy, the other was OK. Since lots of people were using those toilets (flush) sometimes there was a wait. It was an easy walk to the lake which is very beautiful but rather small. We went on Labor Day weekend and there were lots of boats all over with noisy sea-dos. Also lots of people on the trails. There's a quiet time from 10PM but it was not enforced and people partied until the wee hours of the morning. No one told them to be quiet after 10PM. The parking attendant was checking the sites every day without failing. There were limited parking spaces per site and each car must be registered. Overall it was good, but I personally like quiet campgrounds. - renaelindsay

Beautiful heavily wooded location. Some sites have a view of Bass Lake. Adjacent to Millers Landing which offers showers, store, marina, and grill. They have sites which can accommodate a 40 footer, but it will be a tight squeeze both on the road and in the site. The friendly camp host sells firewood and each site has a fire ring. No hookups, and bring a water-thief to fill your tanks. - morganhillers
