We had the privilege of camping with our trailer at Yosemite Ridge just last weekend and really enjoyed it. I'm glad we stayed here instead of the other RV site since this was waaaay nicer. All the sites are really nice, clean and organized with plenty of trees. Even though the place was full, it never felt crowded since everything was spread out surprisely for a small campground. We especially liked the mom & pops style and its so well maintained as you can tell they take pride in their campgrounds. It's great for multiple families get togethers since you can choose between cabin and RV sites. There's useable playground (not some abandoned ghetto site) for kids, roads to cruise on bikes and not to mention a general store with all amenities you might need. Also there's a short walking trail takes you to popular restaurant where we had breakfast.
Additionally we had snafu with our truck hitch breaking during our trip. Since it broke over the weekend, no one was available to repair (it was really stressful calling around everywhere). However, the owner generously allowed us to park our trailer for the week on side lot which we were really grateful so we could properly get our truck fixed near home and not have to take time off work. This saved us a lot of stress and also money as he could easily have charged us a storage fee.
We are glad we found this gem and plan to return next year. It might become our new family tradition.
