Foresta (formerly, McCauley and Opim) is an unincorporated community in Mariposa County, California, within Yosemite National Park. It is located 2.25 miles (3.6 km) northeast of El Portal, at an elevation of 4,314 feet (1,315 m).

The name comes from the Foresta Land Company, founded by A.B. Davis in 1913. Davis built a resort at Foresta but abandoned it.

The Opim post office operated there from 1882 to 1884.
