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!
