Perched just 15 minutes away from Yosemite National Park entrance, we reside comfortably at the center of numerous customer praises for our premium location. But our easy access to one of America's most beloved natural treasures is just the tip of the iceberg. Guests of all ages rave about the wealth of activities on offer, our well-kept facilities, and of course, our warm, friendly staff.

Unrivalled Accommodation and Unique Options

One delightful surprise for many of our guests is the eclectic range of accommodations available, from tenting to RV spots to our special "Scotty's Vintage House" that sleeps ten adults. Packed with windows revealing the park's jaw-dropping beauty, Scotty's Vintage House triggers a longing to soak in the natural scenery through every waking hour.

Our inventive River Yurts get special mention too. Not only spacious, quiet, and beautiful, but they come packed with amenities that guests tell us they "wish [they'd] extended our time".

The Personal Touch: Remembering Names and Moving Mountains

We're proud to be lauded for our friendly team who demonstrate a "go above and beyond" attitude. Our guests can't heap enough praise on our staff. From prompt and friendly service, to the extraordinary lengths team members like Katie, Jeff, and John have gone to make guests' stays hassle-free and memorable. Whether it's driving guests to local eateries or assisting with unexpected vehicle worries, we’re here to make your stay a breeze.

Pairing Essential Services with the Bare Necessities of Life

We strive to ensure our guests never have to interrupt their nature-centered escapades for supplies or creature comforts. Guests love our onsite store stocked with groceries, firewood, everyday items, gasoline, and diesel, all with an easy reach of their RV's parking spot. The campground's WiFI hotspot and coin-op laundry facilities are appreciated conveniences, linking the comfort of your home to the grandeur of Yosemite.

Kids? We've Got You Covered!

Little adventurers will feel equally at home here. Parents talk about us being "great for kids" with "plenty of activities for the whole family". We take our commitment to provide a family-friendly environment seriously and it shows in our clean and modern playground that never ceases to keep the little ones entertained.

Nature’s Splendor Awaits

Our "beautiful place" along the river attract travelers seeking peace, beauty and a hint of adventure. Be it admiring our resident deer family, hiking on various nature trails, swimming in the river or merely basking in the tranquillity under the shade of the giant trees, we offer it all.

Discover More than Just Yosemite

Besides Yosemite, guests adore the wider area's charms. We are located in close proximity to Groveland, a premium placer to pick up groceries, opening the door to wide array of new adventures outside the campground.
