We have friends who have moved to Groveland, Knights Ferry & Twain Hart & with each of those moves, we told them they'd end up talking like hillbillies! The joke was on us! We loved this resort and would have stayed longer except our home is in the Bay Area along with our jobs. We called the day before a major holiday (Labor Day) b/c friends told us about this place, hoping there was a vacancy. Every RV spot in Yosemite was booked so imagine our surprise when Yosemite Joe (owner) called back to tell us we had a spot. Upon arriving, we didn't just have a spot..we had the lot!! We were given our choice of RV spots & it was the most beautiful wk-end we've had in years!! We had no wi-fi, no phone service & no music & what a difference that made in the quality of relaxation. Every nite, we went to sleep listening to crickets & cicadas & every morning, woke up to the sound of singing birds. The staff was unbelievably nice & accommodating, the resort was immaculate, rest. food was delicious & the short distance to Yosemite was a miracle. We want to move to Groveland and live here at this resort ~ full time!! We also want to meet Yosemite Joe on our next trip & thank him personally!!
