If you are looking for an inexpensive way to see Yosemite without staying in the crowded park, look no further than Yosemite lakes Camping Resort. Yosemite Lakes Camping Resort includes RVs, tents, and river yurts. They are located about 5 miles from the West entrance to Yosemite National Park and 3 hours from the bay area. They have been serving Northern California since 1920 and have a history of being hospitable.
RV-Each site has a 30-amp electrical service, sewer, and fresh water, a picnic table, and space for another vehicle. This site is located near a river and plenty of hiking trails.
Tents- Each tent site at Yosemite Lakes Camping Resort is located on a sand pit. It includes a picnic table, fire ring, and a bathroom/showers close by.
River Yurts-If you’re like me, you might be wondering what a yurt actually is. The modern yurt is an adaptation of the ancient Central Asian tent used for traveling throughout the countryside. It is lightweight and circular, but inside you might find all the modern amenities of a cabin or house. Such amenities at the Yosemite Lakes Camping Resort include free satellite TV service, access to a free spa, deck, bathroom with show, access to laundry, a kitchen, and fire pit. The river yurts can sleep up to 5 people, as opposed to 4, have river views, and propane grills mounted to the deck.
