Enjoy some peace and quiet in an old apple orchard that has since been converted into a private community. About 45 minutes from either gate, this space is a refuge to unwind and recharge on your way to/from Yosemite. 

4.5 acres - 2,5 of which is a private spring fed year-round pond. -_ Water fit for swimming and fishing -exclusive use during your stay.you will share it only with the local wildlife.. - An excellent unobstructed view of sky for evening contemplation... . . ++ Quiet & peaceful save for the bull frogs, coyotes but not a completely private wooded site. Neighbors houses are in view and to that I live in the house just above the campsite. (We keep scarce tho).

Awesome spot Denise set up! There was a microwave, electric grill, toilet, and water for us. Felt very welcome. Would absolutely recommend

It was a great site to park our RV and relax! It’s an open, secluded spot by the water. A firepit with seating was provided which was nice, but I suggest bringing or collecting your own firewood instead of buying the “firewood bundle” which seemed to just be logs and twigs collected from the site itself. The host provided some essentials like bug spray, candles, seating, games, etc. which was a nice gesture.

Although the site was great, the host was not responsive after we arrived. We had a few questions about the RV hookup and site, and tried messaging and calling. We only got a handwritten note the following day. We had to resort to using our generator both nights.

It’s a great spot on the way to Yosemite, but if communication with the host is important to you I would look elsewhere.

Denise was very hospitable! I was at the site with my boyfriend and our dog. We were able to use the pond and had fun paddle boarding. Location is secluded but also Mariposa is nearby so we were able to check out the downtown.
