Research shows that spending time outside has significant, positive effects on our immune systems and that enjoying nature is a key component of human health and wellness.
We hope you can enjoy the great outdoors during these challenging times.
Countryside Living! You get the best of both worlds, a city nearby and quiet country space. We are on 2 acres in Madera Ranchos with nearby restaurants and grocery stores. We are a perfect spot for travelers on the way to Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks OR for those checking out the Madera Wine Trails, mountains, rivers and lakes and many fun sites nearby. We also offer experiences (i.e. kid crafts, hikes, etc. list posted on site).
You will also be greeted by our three beautiful white German Shepherds (you can follow Royal White Dogs on Instagram).
There is a patio area for food preparation. A long rectangle table with 4 chairs are provided per camp site. Just to note: Other Hipcampers maybe using the patio at another table.At night, enjoy the stringed lights ambiance or in cooler weather you can have a campfire
*Although the site is listed for 2 guests, if you have children there is an $10 per child under 18. If they are adults, they can book the 2nd site. No more than a family of 4 per site.
CHECK IN TIME IS from 5- 9 PM (although at times we will let you know if it will be late 7-9 pm). If you are coming from SF please give yourself at least 4 hrs. Many people miscalculate the time due to traffic. We go to bed early as we are early risers. Check out is by 10 AM. WE will be adjusting the check out M-F in mid August (2020) when we are both back to work and have to be out by 8:00 a.m The reason we have to be here when you arrive and leave is because of our dogs and use of restroom.
2 night MAX. stay. IF you are staying two nights, we assume you will be out all day hiking or visiting one of the parks. Our place is not a day use campground. Thanks for understanding.
We also host celebrations (*weddings, bdays, etc.) from 25-75 people. Our country site is a perfect place for them. We have a wide variety of party rentals (round tables, chairs, wine barrel bar, door backdrop, speakers, etc.). For more information you can message us or check our A & M Ranch website. Guests may reserve any one of the sites through Hip camp if they choose to spend the night after the celebration. Other sites may be added (only for group celebrations) if needed.

Marta and Arnold were wonderful hosts! Very convenient location if you’re interested in hiking in Sierra National Forest like we did. The alpacas and dogs are ADORABLE. And there’s Yahtzee, so it checks all the boxes. :)
Alpaca back soon!
Perfect hosts! Accommodated my unique camp set up and had some great conversations around the campfire. And co.e on! Alpacas and puppies? We stayed an extra night just to relax after a long road trip.
Close to Yosemite, Sequoia and Fresno with great recommendations on hikes or things to see in the area. I'll be back!
Incredible place and pristine hosts
Staying here was perfect. The location is central to plenty of hikes and parks and Arnold and Marta were incredible hosts. I was sad to leave and hopeful I’ll be back to the area sometime to stay again.
My favorite camping experience!
I never thought I'd be able to say I've camped with alpacas but here we are! My best friend and I decided we wanted to do a quick weekend trip to Sierra National Forest. Since public campgrounds are closed due to COVID-19, we figured we'd give HipCamp a try! We came across Arnold and Marta's fun and unique farm and instantly booked it.
Arnold and Marta were so kind and warm and welcoming. We had a great time learning more about the alpacas and more of what brought them to do Hipcamp.
Their property was easy to camp on, fun to walk around and there was never a moment where I didn't feel safe or uncomfortable.
We also met two other campers there who just happened to be from where we're from! We all played board games together and had great campfire conversations! :)
I would definitely recommend Arnold and Marta's property to camp on for the weekend! I can't wait to go back and see the alpacas and their adorable 3 dogs! Thank you Arnold and Marta!! See you soon!
SO many wonderful things to say about our stay here! The hosts were lovely. The alpacas are hilarious and fun to be around. The hosts accommodated a last minute booking which was highly appreciated! Would absolutely stay here again.
Our best stay yet!
Arnold and Marta are some of the kindest, most hospitable people we've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Their site is amazing and we definitely recommend doing the alpaca walk! The alpacas and 3 dogs were so great to be around. Definitely was a refreshing stay.
We had a great time here! Friendly hosts, nice yard with water, outlets, cute string lights, nice clean indoor bathroom... and of course adorable alpacas. Would recommend and would stay again!
