Seriously - some of the closest places to Yosemite Valley would be vacation homes or condos in Yosemite West. You also wouldn't have to deal with the entrance stations once you're in. That could be quite a bit of time in the peak season. I've actually gotten out of my car at an entrance station before because the line was so long.

You'd also be able to cook your own food.

Tenaya is just outside the south gate (Hwy 41), and El Portal is the west gate, which is what I think you're referring to, Mike.

I've stayed at both redwoods in yosemite & yosemite west, and I prefer the redwoods in yosemite because the area there is flat, so you can go walking right there, and visit the river there, Wawona Hotel, pioneer center, and the stables. You can also take a nice little walk to the foot of the waterfall there, or a long hike to the top of it. Yes, it's farther away from the valley, but in my opinion a better place to stay.

When we stayed at Yosemite West, the cabins where we were at were on the side of the mountain, and you had to either go up or down to get anywhere.

Thanks Mary Jo. Wish I could get back there soon.

We rented a house from Scenic Wonders. It was located in Yosemite West. That was a good location to go to several places in the park like the trees tour and the valley.
