Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging: Great Lodging Special And Activities Close To You

Great Lodging Special and Activities Close to Yosemite National Park

With schools closed for summer schedule, Yosemite Pines RV Resort and Family Lodging, just 22 miles from the west entrance of Yosemite National Park, offers lodging in Cabins and Yurts plus RV and tent sites for an unusual and adventurous vacation.

After a day of sightseeing at Yosemite, often amongst huge crowds, guests enjoy making the Yosemite Pines Resort their base for a relaxing stay with a dip in the on-site swimming pool or a gentle hike to the abandoned gold mine.

The Resort is a beautiful 30-minute drive from the national park and offers full kitchens in the cabins, full hook-up RV sites and Yurts with microwaves and under counter refrigerators. Or nature can be enjoyed in one of the many tent sites. Pets are welcome.

The Yosemite Pines staff plans activities such as pancake breakfasts and barbeques, pool games for the kids and special events for the holidays. Plus a petting zoo with a variety of small animals, a fitness trail with several workout stations, a sand volleyball court and a huge play yard for the toddlers/pre-schoolers will keep the whole family entertained.

The on-site deli offers snacks and quick meals that can be enjoyed pool side or prepared to go for picnics and hiking in the surrounding forests. The convenience store and gift shop are well stocked for groceries and souvenir purchases.

In addition to visiting the national park Yosemite Pines is also near many interesting and unique cities. The city of Groveland has a great "downtown" with a park, shops, restaurants and the famous/infamous Iron Door Saloon said to be California's oldest, continuously operating saloon.

Columbia State Historic Park, located in the heart of the California Mother Lode, is a living gold rush town featuring the largest single collection of existing gold rush-era structures in the state. You can take a stagecoach ride, visit a blacksmith and other unique shops and enjoy the ever-changing entertainment on the streets.
