    14 miles south of the gate of the Yosemite National Park lies a small community; the last big town before getting into the park.

There are many modes of accommodation in this locale to welcome visitors including hotel rooms, lake cabins and cottages.

    Fishing for trout in Oakhurst’s pure creeks is something most visitors to this scenic locale look forward to. Bass Lake is a popular fishing spot and if one so wishes they can also get a narrated cruise on the lake. In addition, visitors can engage in water skiing and swimming. On their way to this lake, visitors can stop by Elderberry House where they can have five star cuisine in a warm, intimate ambiance. They can also come away with a recipe or two from cooking classes offered there. The norm is for a holidaymaker and their family or friends to spend a few nights at in tents at a campsite. Visitors can choose to have a guide escort them through their Oakhurst expedition and teach them how to handle a fishing rod or you can go it alone. There is an old steam engine train christened Logger stationed at Fish Camp that takes visitors on a short but greatly enjoyable 4 mile trip through sugar pine forests. It’s not all quaint and traditional at Oakhurst. Should visitors long for modern conveniences like popcorn and a movie, they will find it in the Met Cinema which shows fairly recent box office hits.
