Enjoy the experience of sleeping in a Tipi on a farm in the foothills, near Yosemite and Bass Lake.  Kids can pet our goats and dogs, and hold baby chicks.  Learn to milk a goat; gather eggs, or just "chill" in the hammock.  A gas grill and picnic table  are available for your use.  It's quiet here; you don't hear traffic noise or sirens, and there are no street lights, so at night you can see the stars.  The usual noises heard are coyotes howling in the evenings, and roosters crowing in the mornings.  

We are dog-friendly to friendly dogs. I have 2 Golden Retrievers, and they will share your camping area. They are well socialized, and like other dogs.

Full Circle Farm was an abosulte gem! My girlfriend and I enjoyed the animals and very private tipi. Carol was very accommodating and friendly! Seriously a unique and unforgettable trip! Make sure to bring pillows and blankets. The tipi has a lot of space for them! The farm is also very close to yomsemite and Sierra national parks. We will be back!

This site was so amazing, and we were so lucky that we managed to snag it for our girlfriends' getaway! Carol has put so much thought and care into these grounds and in her interaction with her guests.

AMENITIES:
The site had all we wanted, plus more than what we expected!
-Tipi is super spacious and so beautifully adorned. Carol let us use her two cots, plus we set up a third, and we still had room for at least one more! Also, there was an electrical outlet that we could've used to charge our devices if we had thought to bring chargers. :)
-Picnic table, chairs, firepit, and BBQ were well-maintained and incredibly useful. Carol was generous in providing propane for us.
-The "outhouse" is actually a beautiful, cabin-chic, luxury bathroom. The design of having a showerhead outside with privacy screens is ingenious!
-Carol had all these great touches to the site: providing a tablecloth for us, signs pointing the way, and solar powered lights/lanterns. (Pro Tip: Hang one of the lightweight, plastic lanterns from a tree branch above the picnic table to give yourself some illumination at night!)

ACTIVITIES:
We really loved interacting with the animals on site, including the beautiful golden retrievers and goats! Bass Lake was an easy 30-40 minute drive away, and it was a great place to spend a hot day. If we had more time, we would've loved to check out the thrift stores and divey bars around town, plus spend more time with the animals.

NOTE:
This is a working farm surrounded by other farms and countryside, so be aware that you're going to hear animal sounds starting with the roosters at 4:30am and ending with the coyotes at midnight! Also, be mindful of the weather forecast during your stay. We came to this site fully knowing what to expect, so we weren't bothered by the noises or the heat. The braying of the nearby donkeys and the screaming of the neighbor's goats were pretty hilarious! Lastly, we were very fortunate to have minimal bugs during our stay, but Carol mentioned that there have been cycles of meat bees and other pests. She does her best in keeping them at bay with traps set up around the campsite.

Overall, Full Circle Farm was an amazing spot for glamping, and we can't wait to come back! Carol is the ideal hostess: kind, accommodating, genuine. She does an amazing job running the farm and hosting on HipCamp, and is pretty much who I want to be when I grow up. I can't recommend this place enough!

We loved staying here! Carol the host was super responsive and friendly and met us upon arrival. She let us use her golf cart to transport our stuff to the campsite which was super helpful. Her property is so beautiful and we loved getting to explore and hang out with all of her farm animals. We spent a lot of time watching the baby goats play and hanging out with her two friendly pups. The campsite had everything that we needed: table, chairs, BBQ, firepit, super nice "outhouse," and a really beautiful tipi to sleep in. This is a really great place to get away from city living and enjoy a bit of the farm life. Carol even has fresh farm eggs for sale if you want to take some of the farm home with you. I would definitely recommend staying here (just remember your earplugs if you are a light sleeper since sleeping on a farm can be noisy).

The beautiful tipi you get to sleep in! Delicious breakfast. Sleeping on the Tipi. Cute signs around the property.

The farm is incredibly beautiful and Carol is one of the most amazing hosts you'll ever meet. She was kind enough to lend us blankets when we were woefully unprepared for the trip, and then treated us with a lot of playtime with her wonderful goats. She has 2 golden retrievers and they are a pure joy to play with. In addition she has a ton of chickens, with some of them free range on the property and you can check out the coops whenever you want.
Carol also made sure we had everything we needed for our barbecue during the night and treated us with some of her yummy goat milk icecream in the end. I will highly recommend a visit to full circle farm for anyone looking to get away from the cities, and the place is really close to Yosemite so it makes for a perfect weekend trip!

Amazing Experience! The farm, chickens and goats. If you have kids, this will surely amaze them. The Tipi, spacious, beautiful and safe. The host Carol will have everything for you. Gas grill, gas bonfire and wood bonfire if you prefer with free wood to burn. The area, about an hour to Yosemite National Park attraction and 30 minutes to Bass Lake. Two towns that are very close are Coarsegold and Oakhurst. The Host Carol, she is the best! She will have everything ready for you when you arrive. Loan you anything u don’t have. She is there to meet you and orient you with everything. The outhouse!! Your own private outhouse!! With flush toilet, running water, sink, shower and HAND TOWELS!

Overall our experience is positive and great. We will definitely be back and will recommend her place to everyone we know.

Thank you again Carol and be sfe always.

Spring was a beautiful season for Full Circle Farm. The children loved playing with the kids, and Carol was kind and friendly. The campsite was quiet, safe, clean, and comfortable. I loved how it was artfully tucked in with the boulders and oak trees in a little dell. Sleeping in a tipi was something special. We would love to come again!

We loved our stay at Full Circle! Carol was such an amazing host! As soon as we arrived, we were greeted by her cute pups Katie and Bubba! Carol was very accommodating and our stay was very relaxing and stress free! We had a great time relaxing under the stars and in the nice tipi! We also had a great time playing with her farm animals! If you’re a dog lover, her pups will hang out with you during your stay (we loved that!). At night, just note that if you have some kind of light on there will be June bugs around but that didn’t “bug” us hehe! My fiancé and I felt sad to leave after our stay (we loved it that much!) but we will definitely be back! Thank you Carol for making our weekend getaway a great one!!

Carol is a wonderful host and I highly recommend staying at Full Circle Farm. It is quiet, with the exception of farm animals, clean, and definitely has the feeling of seclusion. The camp backs up to undeveloped land so there aren't any neighbors within earshot either. The teepee itself is large with plenty of space to spread out. All in all it is a wonderful getaway and a great place to stay just outside Yosemite National Park.
