I am trying to find a nice campground near Yosemite National Park. I know all of the CG's in the Park have no hook-ups, so I am looking for something just outside the Park and within an hours drive of all the "goodies" of the National Park. Can anyone recommend a CG? I would like some hook-ups, mostly electric. Thanks
You can try the Yosemite Pines rv park in Groveland, CA. There is a steep grade to get into Groveland called Priest Grade. But it is do-able. The rv park is about 20 minutes to Yosemite entrance. There is Hetch Hetchy reservoir to visit. And the views are spectacular. To bet to the valley is about another 1/2 hr drive.
It's been many years since we stayed at the KOA in Coarsegold. I remember it to be a nice campground, well cared for. I looked at recent reviews and they all seem good. Here's the website:
We stayed one night and then camped inside the park for 3 nights and then back out to the KOA for a couple of days. That way our batteries held up while we were in the park. We saw the sites outside of the park while at the KOA.
Moved from 5th wheels to RV Parks, Nat'l Parks, State CGs and more.

If you are a member of the Escapees, they have a great campground in Coarsegold - Park of the Sierras - but you have to be an Escapee. Beautiful park with great rates - might be worth joining the SKPS just for this park!!!
