GROVELAND, Calif., April 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For years, Yosemite Pines RV Resort and Family Lodging has been the perfect place near Yosemite National Park for affordable cabins, RV and camping sites, and their popular Yurts. With the addition of new, upgraded "Cozy Cabins," the resort now offers even more lodging and camping options, and has been featured in an elite "Best Places" list by one of the most important travel websites.
Recently, Fodor's Travel selected Yosemite Pines RV Resort and Family Lodging as one of their "10 Best Places to Camp Year-Round." The well-known travel website said "Yosemite Pines RV Resort is a multifaceted year-round resort and stands out for its variety of lodging options, cleanliness, and picturesque evergreen mountain backdrop."
Part of the renewed national interest about Yosemite Pines is due to the addition of new Cozy Cabins, now with two queen beds. Priced from $149, these fully-appointed cabins are very popular with travelers seeking comfortable accommodations just a short drive from Yosemite National Park's Western gate. These new cabins sleep up to four people, and feature a full bath, countertop refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, linens and cable television. These cabins are in addition to the other Cozy Cabins at Yosemite Pines, which sleep two and are priced from $99 per night.
The main draw for travelers choosing Yosemite Pines is of course the nearby National Park. After the scenic 30-minute drive to the Park gate, guests from Yosemite Pines can enjoy day trip adventures to the Park, where some of the country's most beautiful scenery can be found. Travelers can hike, bike, fish or just recharge at the park, and can return to their camp site or cabin at the end of the day.
Make your trip to see Yosemite National Park even more enjoyable by taking the YARTS motor coach shuttles that depart right from Yosemite Pines. Fares are affordable and include admission into the park, with reduced fares available for seniors, children and persons with disabilities.

However, guests do not have to even leave the scenic grounds at Yosemite Pines to have great family fun, with a large swimming pool, volleyball court, deli, Swing Set, Bocce Ball court and the popular Petting Farm keeping all ages entertained every day.
The Gold Country towns and attractions that surround Yosemite Pines offer additional day trips to soak up some California sun and learn about the region's rich gold mining history. Groveland is just a short drive from Yosemite Pines, and has a wonderful downtown area with a park, shops, restaurants and the famous Iron Door Saloon, said to be California's oldest continuously-operating saloon. And in the "living gold rush town" of Columbia - located in the heart of the California Mother Lode - travelers can view the largest single collection of existing gold rush-era structures in the state.
