We stayed here for two nights in June 2016. Location was convenient for getting to Yosemite and the cabin we had was spacious enough. The bunk beds were a little uncomfortable, according to the two teenagers traveling with me, but the queen bed was great for me! The people doing the check in and check out were a little unfriendly... More

As long as you know going in that you will be staying in a very rustic place, you will be fine. Most places close to Yosemite are older and not plush. Location was outstanding and that was the main thing we were looking for. You will be within the gates of Yosemite in 15-20 minutes. WiFi is almost non existent... More

The facilities provided are as per the information provided in their website. Joe McGrath, owner of Yosemite Ridge Resort was very helpful as we had checked in after 8pm.

Coming from the South, I understand that lodging is MUCH more expensive in CA than it is around here, and especially near a world-class national park like Yosemite. Still, $120/night for a room approximately 15 x 15, with no bed (just a fold-out futon with a back-killing mattress) and low-ceilinged bathroom facilities...well, we adjusted. The place was obviously clean and... More

Good cabins to stay in. Stove, fridge, microwave, satellite TV, air conditioning, private deck, huge trees all around you. Wi-fi is free but not so good. Small general store with reasonable prices.

Cute cabins at a reasonable price! We enjoyed staying here and the campground staff was very friendly. The cabins are kind of a cross between a camper or trailer. You definitely get the camping vibe in the cabin. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, but we ended up going up the road to the restaurant for meals. It... More

We were extremely lucky to be recommended this resort. The prices in Yosemite can be incredible and availability difficult to find. We planned a trip with friends to Yosemite with only a few months notice and were lucky to find two nights availability in the Dogwood property at the Yosemite Ridge. First the location was excellent, about 12 miles drive... More

It is a great place to be. The loft cabins are good, self sufficient. You will love to be there. Lots of open space, on the main highway. Staff is polite efficient. There is a small store attached to the resort to meet your requirements. A super place to stay. Inter net is there but as good as not there.... More
