"FISH CAMP IS YOSEMITE GATEWAY" Fish Camp by travelgourmet

Fish Camp Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 8 photos


The name implies fish, but the main attraction is the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad. If you like railroad tracks and the sound of a steam engine then it is "All Aboard" for you. The children seem to love the ride. A few shops and a gold panning venue is here as well. If you are looking for more than this then there is not much else to see or do unless you are excited about a lot of pine trees and the fact that up the road a piece in one of the world's most awe inspiring sights, Yosemite Valley.

There are a couple of motel/hotels in the area and a couple of restaurants. Down Hwy 41, about 12 miles is Oakhurst, I have a tip on the Railroad in my Oakhurst pages under off the beaten path. If you click on the blue writing in the paragraph before of Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine RR you can see my review. Fish Camp is only 2 miles to the south entrance to Yosemite, so a stay here means a fast getaway to the beauty of Yosemite.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A reminder of the old railroad days and fun for the kids
  • Cons:It does cost to take the ride and it can get crowded
  • In a nutshell:If you miss the good ole days, they can be found here

    We didn't manage to get on the train, but did see the fire engine. I'm in the process of building my pages. Cheers from the UK
