“Great location, friendly people and comfy cabin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2009

We stayed in a camping cabin for a couple of nights which proved to be a perfect spot for visiting Yosemite, which takes about 15 mins to get to (40 mins to the valley floor). The cabin was small but had everything we needed and the staff at the on site shop couldn't have been nicer. Also, there's a restaurant about 100 yards up the road which does great food, nice cold beers and a dartboard. Plus there's the town of Groveland about 10 minutes away.

Initially, since it was after dark, we had some difficulty finding the resort. However once we located it and got settled in. We fell in love with the shade and the friendliness of the staff. The RV sites are level and hookups are convenient. The resort also furnishes free receivers for the satellite system they have installed.

There is plenty of shade and you are only a short distance from the entrance to Yosemite and from Groveland.

We found the best way to reach the resort is to go through Groveland on highway 120 about 10 miles and watch for it on the left.

We will definitely come here again!

This resort is very close to the Yosemite National Park without feeling over crowded by too many campers. The facilities were in excellent condition both the Cabins and the RV hook-ups sites. Public Restrooms and showers were very clean and convienently located. The mini mart on site had what was needed for camping and the resturant/bar was a fun relaxing time. The staff were friendly and accomodating with some of our special needs.

I stayed at the Ridge with three friends - we shared a garden cottage and had a great time. The standard of cleanliness was excellent and it was really convenient for Yosemite where we spent long days.
49R's next door is great for food too.

This park can accomodate our large set-up of 35 tow behind trailer, with slides. Owner and staff extremely friendly and accomodating. Clean park with spotless bathrooms. We had a lawn area next to our site, which we enjoyed. They are planning to plant more lawn. It is nice to see they want to continue to improve the park. I really appreciated the reasonable rates.
It was wonderful after spending the day on Memorial weekend in Yosemite to come back to a quiet and relaxing campsite. Our family was tenting it 13 miles up the road in Yosemite, and got little sleep. We were will rested each morning to sightsee and hike. Hetch Hetchy is close to this end of the park, which made it nice. The valley drive was easy from this end. In fact with it being a holiday weekend, it was the better route to be taking into the valley.

Yosemite Ridge Resort….aka Buck Meadows

Do you want to be treated like family? Do you want to see the owner/operator daily? Do you want a clean camp and facilities? Do you want great food, and a bar-open nightly?

Hey, we are experienced RV travelers....we have paid the big bucks to stay at the fluff and fold, fancy RV parks. We have done the cheap KOA (no offense intended)"I only need a night here please" parks. Well this park ("Buck Meadows") Yosemite Ridge Resort has exactly what you need at a very fair price.

The owner, Joe, will take care of you! The facilities are clean and well maintained...sure you will see improvements going on, but you will not be disturbed by them. The showers were immaculately clean, daily.....trash emptied-daily....

Want a great breakfast, lunch or dinner, hike up to the relocated Restaurant (a stones throw) and meet the Owner-Again at breakfast...he's running the restaurant and bar as well.....the food is heaping, family style dining (have the breakfast sausage-yumm).

The park is quiet...you won't mind the "frogs" burping in the night.Overall my wife and I, along with our bird, enjoyed staying here....We are confident you will too!!!

We have traveled the other routes from a RV park into Yosemite....none are close to the park, but this Resort offers the best route (we did it 6 times) and RV friendly.

Thank you Joe for your hospitality!
