There's only 15 RV sites here at Yosemite Ridge, but they are surrounded by green grass and you're not sitting on your neighbor's back yard. The park is only 12 miles from the "north" gate of Yosemite National Park, so if you want to see Yosemite, but can't get a site in the Valley, this would be your next best bet. They also have several cabins, so you don't even have to bring an RV, or you can use the cabins to bring along friends that do not have camping equipment.
In addition to the main attraction, Yosemite, there are other day trips that you can enjoy such as visiting Sonora and Columbia State Park (old-fashioned mining town - you are not allowed to drive motor vehicles inside the town boundaries); you can visit the fish hatchery at the bottom of the hill to the west; you can enjoy Groveland and some of their historical buildings and sites; or you can spend a day up in the high country, Tuolumne Meadows and Hetch-hetchy Reservoir. There are trails from Tuolumne that take you to the top of Yosemite Falls and some of the granite domes that are seen from Yosemite Valley.
A meal or two at the Buck Meadows restaurant is worth every penny. Be sure you to say, "Hi!" for me to Joe McGrath, and tell them CamperRick sent you!
