Today we drove to Yosemite Pines RV park for our impending trip to the Yosemite National Park. We stopped for a quick oil change in Turlock and using Valley Mobile Oil which is an outstanding way to get your oil change by the way. They basically come to where you are and change service your rv. Got the generator serviced as well. After the oil change and another hair raising set of high mountain S curves, we arrived at our camp about 4:30pm. Just in time to cook some Patti melts and have a glass of wine. Tomorrow we journey to Yosemite Valley which is about an hours drive from us.
RV Park Review: The cons for this resort is their lots are somewhat unleveled in areas and it is quite dusty when its dry; however, the park is in a very nice tree covered area and is probably as close as you can get to Yosemite without being in the park. Yosemite Pines has more of a state park camping feel as opposed to a resort feel which was actually quite nice. The campground fits the area. There are a couple of short walking trails around the park but they are not maintained very well and you may need to climb over a tree trunk or two. The restaurant was not open due to covid while we were there. There is a warning about taking one route to the park which is very steep and curvy and should be avoided. 120 is curvy and steep as well but we had no issues with our 32′ MH and towed. The campground itself is a bit narrow in spots so very large rigs might have more of an issue but we managed just fine. Internet connectivity both in wifi and cellular were quite poor. Groveland has a decent grocery store, fuel and a few restaurants. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Motorhome.https://www.campgroundreviews.com/regions/california/groveland/yosemite-pines-rv-resort-family-lodging-347
