Oak Hurst is a small town that has done a complete makeover in recent decades. Growing the wide 4-lane highway for more tourists dollars and feeding the commercial frenzy! The masses that head to Yosemite daily can gas up here and get fast food fix. Plenty chain hotels on the main drag too. Starbucks usually has the best bathroom in town by far. The town expanded so fast, way back into the neighboring hills and forest - to now include the town of North Fork.
Whether you are headed to Bass Lake for some boating, the back roads for some stream fishing or the granite glacier carved Yosemite National Park, you'll most likely pass through this growing outdoor mecca. Food, gas, coffee & ice!
