Yosemite lake does not welcome RPI members as we should be.
they separate us from the rest. I would never go back to this site. We were assigned an area with no shade behind a smelly pond when mentioned to the park assisantent his responce was prosily as if it was intended for second hand. RPI members donot desire to be treated in this matter. I would suggest to camp on a public site instead of this place I would noit recommend this site to orthers
Just came back from a week in Yosemite-- we used this campground as our home base (we were in an rv), we unhooked and drove down to the valley and other points of interest everyday. Not sure about the previous review but we had no problems what so ever. Actually the only problem we had is when someone took our campsite one day while we were out in the valley. The staff there was great and did not take kindly to it and offered us a site in the members area and almost kicked the other people out of the park. It was very peaceful, the staff is friendly, there is a nice little river to fish from with some decent size trout in it, both of my kids caught one. Make sure you have a fishing license--warden does come around checking. I recommend this campsite. There is a member section and non member section, we were in the non member section and had plenty of shade, have no idea what the other review was talking about. It takes about 5 to 10 minutes from the campground to the west park entrance on the 120 and about another 45 mins in the rv to the valley floor day use parking. After seeing the crowded campsite conditions on the valley floor (it looked like woodstock) I was glad to be staying at Yosemite Lakes. There is laundry facilities there as well if you need it and a General Store that carries the basics you may need and gas. Gas is cheaper in the park by about .20 cents a gallon. Even though we were offered a site in the members section we found another site in the non members that we kept the rest of the week. Thet have two sets of bathrooms with showers. This is a good place and I will stay there again my next trip to Yosemite. Have fun.
