We arrived on a Saturday with one teenager. Talk about hospitality! From check in it was great. We found our RV site, full hookups, gravel, level, and "Dave" the cable guy hooked us up with a loaner Direct TV box for the week. Joe, (the owner) and his fiance would take their nightly walks around with their dogs greeting the newly checked in guests.
The rainbow pool was yes, a small drive (3 miles), but worth it, and not a big deal of a drive. We thought "who needs a built in pool with jumping and yelling kids?"..
We drove daily to Yosemite Valley Floor, and it took about 55 minutes. Again, no big deal.
The restrooms and showers were clean and accomodating.. rustic.
Buck Meadows Restaurant, ran by Joe was great! All the staff were accomodating and the food and prices were good.
Yes, no cell reception in the area, but Groveland is not far for that and the valley has cell reception as well. Internet was available while having breakfast at the diner..
Overall , great trip, great accomodations, and great hospitality.. We will be back Joe !
