Yosemite - Best RV Park

Folks can you recommend the best RV park for Yosemite?

We need Full hookups and are about 40' long.

We also do not toad - so if there are tours available that would be a big plus.

Me the wife and 3 kids.

Thank you in advance!!

Alex

Yosemite is not close to any RV park. the closest RV park i know of is Yosemite West/ Mariposa KOA, about 30-45 minutes from the park.
we always stay in the park, so i haven't stayed at any RV parks nearby.
i would call the park and ask about tours and if they pick up at any of the areas outside the park.
or the KOA might have some info.

Getting a campsite in Yosemite (during anything near the fair weather season) is almost impossible. The campsite reservation system has specific days each month which opens another set of dates, and every site gets booked inside 60 seconds from the 7:00am PST time.

Tried for 2 years now without any luck.

Yosemite National Park - Camping Reservations (U.S. National Park Service)

Late fall or winter might be possible, but I have to put the trailer away from October to May due to snow at our house.

We booked the Mariposa KOA.

Are there really no hookups inside the park?

If we decided to dry camp - are there sites that can accommodate a 40" Class A?

Thank you!

most National Parks don't have any hookups. Yellowstone is one of the few and it only has one CG with hookups., Fishing Bridge.
Yosemite does have some large sites in North Pines that will accommodate larger rigs. not sure about the other two.

since you're from California, you should be used to park campgrounds not having any hookups, since California State Parks have only a handful statewide. and they're booked up nearly year-round.
