I am totally not a camping person but we wanted to do something a little different as part of our trip to NoCal. We chose a riverside yurt and it was totally brilliant. The yurt itself was really fun, a huge round structure with loads of space for us and our two young children. It had heating and an A/C system and as a result there was none of that musty/dusty smell that you can get with these kind of things.

It was really fresh and clean, and bug and spider free. Bathroom was clean and perfectly adequate. The towels were clean and plentiful and the bed linen clean and fine too. Kitchen was good and there was a lovely gas grill on the deck overlooking the river. It was perfect to sit grilling steaks while the children paddled in the river.

The yurts are in a row along the river so you do have neighbours, so don't come expecting to feel like the only ones there- but there is enough space between yurts and we didn't find it a problem.
On one evening there was a band playing down by the RV/ tent area which was really fun and there was generally a nice atmosphere. We stayed only 2 nights and could quite happily have stayed longer. Our 4 and 6 year old said simply that it was the best place ever...!

One tip- make sure you stop and stock up on supplies in Groveland- we drove straight through thinking we could buy food for that evening's dinner at the shop on site. however, it closes at 4pm. We ended up having to drive back to Groveland (which was open till 9pm) after checking in- which isn't a big deal, but if you have spent all day in the car you don't want to have to drive off again.

I chose to stay at the yurts here because of their proximity to Yosemite. For $170/night, I expected a comfortable bed. Apparently, you are paying for the location. It was mostly fine aside from the horrible bed, pillows, and linens, although the gas grill was too filthy to use. They have housekeeping do most of the cleaning, but you must do your own dishes and take the trash with you. They warn of a 'cleaning fee' if it's not left "as clean as you found it." Again, for $170 a night, I expected a little more.

This was our fourth time being at this campground and we love it!! We always book the hillside yurt, close to the store and quiet and the hot tub is great!! We came in the winter one time and the yurt was cozy and warm and the snow was everywhere and the hot tub great. We are going back 6-27-09 and will enjoy each minute of it I'm sure. We love the yurts because the bathroom is right in the yurt with shower and towels provided. The kitchen has dishes, cups and glasses and pots and pans. No need to pack all these things, just unpack and go to Yosemite!!! It is better than a hotel and much more fun.

The hillside yurts at Yosemite Lakes are great - ours was incredibly clean, with good facilities and overall very comfortable. The only downside was that it was very cold at night, but extra blankets were provided which we made good use of! We visited Yosemite over the Labor Day weekend and there was nothing available in the park itself by the time we got round to booking accommodation. But the Yosemite Lakes site is literally a couple of miles from the Park entrance so you can be right in the heart of things within about 40 minutes (and who minds driving when the views are so spectacular).

My husband and I stayed at the Yosemite Lakes Yurts the weekend before Memorial day and had a fabulous time. We booked one of the hillside Yurts because they allow dogs and we wanted to bring our puppy with us. After we booked the Yurt we came to tripadvisor.com and read some bad reviews about the camping area, although the yurts were highly rated. I must say that we do not have a bad thing to say about the area. Our Yurt was extremely clean, fully loaded with anything you would need to make a meal in its lovely kitchen, had AC and had a heater. We couldn't have been more impressed with the lovely accomodations. The Yurts are a little close together, however we felt like we were the only ones there(they do a very good job of positioning the patio decks and picnic tables away from the other yurts decks and tables). We spent one day at Yosemite National Forest, the entrance is only 5 miles away, and one full day at Yosemite Lakes. FYI- We are camping people and obviously love the outdoors, if you do not like to camp, you may not like it here!
