Ron, I would go to Three Rivers and park the motorhome at Sequoia RV Ranch and drive your toad into the parks. I can't remember the Hwy # but it is out of Visalia.
Are you staying in or near Mariposa? If not you might want to take Hwy 41 out of Fresno into Yosemite. There is road work on 41 and 140 so expect delays.

Hyway 198. I am sitting in Sequioa RV ranch presently. Space 28. Drove to the Sequioa park Sunday and to Yosemite yesterday on 41 out of Fresno. No road construction to Yosemite. Different deal to Sequioa Park, construction and couldn't go over top due to snow closure. Raining off and on since Sunday.Still beats home and work.
You have to take toad to Sequioa Park.

Sequoia Ranch, beautiful right on the river. That is the part of California we will miss. Can you sleep at night with all that river noise? :-) Sweetheart circle was our favorite spot!

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

The reason we are here is because of your review. Rain every night can't hear the river. Great place though. We will be back.

Thanks, I try to write the truth about a campground. Patty's and my favorite type of a campground is a bit closer to nature.

Glad you like it, plus the owner is a great person too.

We also like camping in the middle of nowhere. Our avatar is in Carrizo plain near Bakersfield. Miles of wild flowers and noone around fpr 20 miles. 26 miles of dirt road to get there.

Ah, Patty and I had eyed that campground many times on the map. Unfortunately weekends were too short for 26 miles of dirt road.

Off subject ( still), did you ever get to camp at the Piedras Blanca Motel north of San Simeon? That was a great place till the state bought it.

There are two campgrounds up there but we followed a two rut road to the center of a medow. Funny thing is coming in from Soda Lake the road is paved, only would have had a dirt road for 1/2 mile. lol

No never went to the motel but do like Cambria and all the area going north as well.
