The site is lovely in wooded area with a stream running through. Restrooms were clean and pleasant with hot showers. The owners emailed us in advance to let us know the road to Yosemite was closed; they were amazing as they gave us a refund on our stay. Due to the road closure we only stayed one night not three...

Hi Joanna, Thank you for your kind review. We have been pleasantly surprised that, although we have received cancellations, so many have kept their reservations and visited in spite of the road closure. Hopefully it will be over soon and we can get on with our normal season. We are glad you enjoyed your visit! Joe & Brandi McGrath, owners

We haven't stayed here (yet), but this review is to pass along that this resort is run by good people. We needed to cancel our reservation, and they did so without issue, including refunding our deposit. While that may seem to be no big deal to some, we find that not every resort plays by the rules nowadays. We will...

Hi, Thank you for your kind review even though you haven't been here yet. We believe that the current problem with accessing Yosemite Valley will be resolved soon and during this time we have been giving a full refund on deposits. This is a personal decision for my wife and I as we believe it is not our guests fault...

Travelled over to Yosemite for a couple of days & stopped in the miners cabin at the resort. Accommodation was spot on. Location about an hour drive away from the valley, but the location was ok. About 10 minutes away from Groveland, which was great for getting something to eat & stock up on provisions. The shop at the resort...

We stayed 3 nights in a cabin where we enjoyed having our own cooking facilities. The cabin was warm and comfortable. There was a storm that came through while we were there and we had no power from about 6:30pm until the next morning. It would have been helpful if the manager had given us an update about what was...

Booked three nights at this campground while we were visiting Yosemite National Park. We had a campsite for our trailer. This is not a resort! The sites for the campers are very narrow and small. The cable and wifi are basically non existent. When we questioned the cable reception, the man whom we spoke to referred to the fact that...

This was our 7th Annual Yosemite Motorcycle Run to Yosemite National Park. The Garden Cottages were ready for us upon our arrival. Yosemite Joe and Brandi along with the staff were great host! The cottages were clean and cool. After checking in, some of the guys took a much needed dip in the pool to cool off. They even had...

We were assigned the "Ponderosa" family cabin capable of sleeping 4/5 people. It was really attractive being made almost enitrely of pine boards but with full kitchen/bathroom facilites and air conditioning and very comfortable. Note that there only seem to be two cabins of this type so my review may not apply to other accomodation units or of course to...

The resort was relaxing for our large family. Each family either used a cabin,cottage or an RV space and we had a fantastic time. The staff was just as friendly and accommodating to us all. The swimming kept everyone cooled off from the warm temperatures & to enjoy the evening stars with all the family was as memorable.
