My review of staying at Bass Lake at Yosemite RV Resort along with a few of my day trips including Yosemite National Park and Bass Lake.
The wife and I recently spent 5 days at Bass Lake at Yosemite RV Park. This was our second time staying at this park. We loved the spot we were in the last time we stayed here so we booked the same spot again. We were in spot #103 and if you plan on staying here, I would suggest you look at the map and reserve a spot in the upper area near 103.
The other spots lower closer to the pool are really funky and can be super challenging to back into if you have a big rig like ours. One of the other benefits is there is shade in these spots because of the tall trees. Which is really nice because 100-degree weather is common in the summer months.
They added WiFi to the park which is welcome as cell service in the RV Park is spotty at best, at least with AT&T. Not sure about other carriers though.
Things to See and Do Near this Park.
Sugar Pine Railroad
We’ve driven many times past the Sugar Pine Railroad but never rode the train. This time we decided to take the 1-hour train ride and scratch it off our bucket list. Tickets are $27 per adult. If you love trains, this is a must.
Yosemite National Park.
You must visit Yosemite National Park at least once in your lifetime. One of the great wonders of the world in my humble option. From Half Dome to El Capitan, the views are absolutely spectacular! The park charges $35 per vehicle (valid for 5 days). They offer discounts for seniors and veterans but I don’t remember those costs. Sorry!
Bass Lake is a popular destination for tourists, especially in the summer months. It’s a gorgeous lake with tons of activities. Access to Bass Lake from the RV Park is like… let me think… 3 to 4 minutes depending on how you drive. Besides the obvious, I want to give a shout out to the ice cream scoopers at Miller’s Landing. Nothing better than Ice Cream on a warm summer day! Trivia: Bass Lake is where they filmed the hilarious 1988 movie The Great Outdoors starring John Candy and Dan Aykroyd.
So there you go. A wonderful destination if you are looking for a nice RV Park to stay at, close to many places you just have to see.
