Word on the streets is that there’s gold in them thar’ hills. With town names like Coarsegold and Finegold, it’s easy to see how the local culture was sparked by the early prospectors looking for their fortune.
We’ve settled down in Coarsegold at the Park of the Sierras RV Park, a private park open only to residents who have bought lots in the park, or Escapee club members who can stay there for up to 90 days each calendar year.
At $400/mo + electric for full hookups, this park is an absolute steal. Big hills and spacious sites in a fully gated community mean quiet times, unless you count the birds. Quail, songbirds, Western Bluebirds, the chorus goes on from sunrise to sunset.
Located just south of the Yosemite south entrance, it also makes a great jumping pad for our adventures, hopefully we don’t get too complacent in the peace and quiet inside the park!
