    YOSEMITE MOUNTAIN SUGAR PINE RAILROAD

    by travelgourmet Updated Sep 15, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A few miles up Hwy 41 from Oakhurst, near the south gate to Yosemite, sits an old steam engine locomotive called the Logger. Located in Fish Camp it is still in operation on a 4-mile scenic railroad excursion through the sugar pines that logging trains used at the turn of the century. Make sure the children stay seated.

    The grounds are filled with sights of yesteryear with gold panning, a museum, a trading store with gifts, and at the Depot building is the Station Gift Shop. Drinks and snacks are available at the Station Sandwich Shop. Had lots of fun on the Moonlight Special, 5:30 PM till after dark, about 9:30 PM, with a BBQ, ride on the train, and a campfire sing-a-long featuring the Sugar Pine Singers. This is a great experience for young and old and the trees are standing tall as you clickety-clack along the railroad track.

    BASS LAKE

    by travelgourmet Updated Jan 24, 2010

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Near Oakhurst, before Yosemite, sits a body of water called Bass Lake. Don't miss this beautiful recreation spot while exploring Yosemite or the gold country towns. It is a great chill out location to rest up, fish, camp, swim, water ski, or eat.

    There is a narrated one hour pleasure cruise aboard the Bass Lake Queen II that sails daily during the summer at 3pm. It departs from the Marina in front of Ducey's on the Lake (Pines Village) where food and music await on Friday's during the summer. Yosemite Bass Lake Fishing Adventures located at Ducey's Dock has three hour excursions with everything you will need to try and catch the big one. Their phone number is (559) 642-3200.
