We were there in summer of 2022. Stayed out of the park at Yosemite Pines RV Park. Nice place. Didn't spend much time in the RV park as we were in Yosemite with our toad both days we stayed there. I think it was about a 30 minute drive into the park.

The only way into Yosemite from the east is through lee vining. There are big pines on that side. I am not sure where the closest Sequoia Grove is to the east side. The Mariposa grove has some huge trees but that is on the southern end, a long ways from the east entrance. Personally i would come in from the north west and spend some time in Yosemite then move south and head into Sequoia NP for a few days to see the big trees.

With that size MH I wouldn't advise coming in from the east, Lee Vining.

Stay on the west side of the park.

Another neat place is to drive up Hwy 101 and stay at Ancient Redwoods RV right in the midst of some huge trees and nice, easy hiking within them.

We stayed at the Mariposa West Yosemite KOA a few years ago on the west side and I was going to recommend it but checking the CampgroundReviews listing shows it as permanently closed. There have been no reviews since 2017, which is when we were there. I don't remember any others in that area and it was the only one I found in the immediate area of Yosemite that we could stay at the time.

Any rv park to the east of Yosemite will be a lengthy drive away from the Redwoods in the national park. It's mostly 45 mph or less inside the park. Just so you know. Allow a couple of hours each way. Wish I could help with the rv parks, but I boondocked on forest land when I was there a decade ago.

Hwy 41 out of Fresno, CA has some RV parks on the way to Yosemite.

East of Yosemite..... You could stay at Mono Vista RV Park on 395. We have. This park is located just outside the park entrance. You can explore the park and drive to the valley and village for day trips, very doable with your towed. Also, Mono Lake is worth exploring. Great visitor center, ranger talks and hikes at the lake. Very interesting. This is a late spring trip or summer trip. Lots of snow this year and 120 Tioga Pass is closed and will remain closed until the roads can be cleared. The drive over 120 is just beautiful, you are in the park with lakes and trails to explore. Yosemite is worth seeing. The village is a mad house, so crowded but you have to go at least once. The park via 120 is my favorite. Giant Sequoias are South of Yosemite.

I was glad I took my bicycle when I snagged 2 nights in Yosemite Village a few years back. The trails are very pleasant for biking (or walking, if one prefers, but one can cover more ground and see more in total on a bike).
