Yosemite - north pines in April

We have reservations at north pines in Yosemite in early April. We will be traveling down from northern Washington with our casita and picking up a daughter at the Fresno airport. If we are snowed or weathered out of north pines, does anyone have suggestions at lower altitude within a couple of hours of Fresno?

There are quite a few campgrounds within an hour of Fresno off Hwy 41 and the south entrance to Yosemite. You can try Lupine and Cedar Bluff at Bass Lake (USFS), the Yosemite RV Resort in Coarsegold and High Sierra RV in Oakhurst. However, I would recommend going further North and stay near Groveland or Jamestown. Depending on what you are looking for, groveland and Jamestown have a bit more historical points of interest than Coarsegold and Oakhurst. The access to low elevation outdoor activities is better up North too.

I lived in Yosemite Valley for almost a decade and have seen weather range from heavy snow to warm and sunny in April. You should most likely be fine though. I think you might have a higher likelihood of dealing with road closures from rockslides and flooding when you visit. Usually, NOT ALWAYS, access to/from Yosemite Valley, is resolved in a day or two.

As mentioned earlier Road closures are a more likely problem. Check that your planned route is open before leaving the Fresno Airport. From there the shortest route is highway 41. It is normally good roads all the way.

The 140 is almost always open and is only 20 minutes longer than the 41. It's an easier drive too. You should have a great time! Take your bikes!!
