Journey to Yosemite (Oakhurst, CA)

After two days at the Success Lake campground, we hit the road for our next campground in Oakhurst, CA. We followed Highway 99 to Fresno and then Highway 41 to Oakhurst.

On our way to Oakhurst, it was orange grove after orange grove after orange grove. What was really strange was seeing lush green orange groves surrounded by parched, brown grasslands. Madera County was a treat — rolling hills, huge granite formations, and the Sierra mountains in the near distance.

Madera County – 1


Madera County – 2


We arrived at our campground about 2 pm. While it’s no RV “resort”, our camp site sits just above the Fresno River.



Site 44



We’re going exploring tomorrow . . . bought a cantaloupe that must have been grown locally because it was awesome !!! More later.
