This is a multi-tent campsite, it will support 2 to 3 tents. and a semi level area to park next to your tent.
Come and enjoy nature in the Sierra foothills while listening to the birds sing. You might get to see a quail family or a flock of wild turkeys or some deer come through. Drive right up to your tent site. Enjoy cooking in our communal outdoor kitchen equipped with a sink with running water (cold water only), ample counter space, propane stove, and earth oven. Bring your dutch ovens and cook on our special fire brick table. Sit around the camp fire and tell stories or roast marshmallows and make s'mores with friends. Enjoy the enclosed outdoor hot shower before retiring for the night or to start your day. Our donkeys love treats such as banana peals, apple cores, etc. and will thank you with a hardy HeeHaw. Just 31 miles or 50 minutes from El Portal entrance into Yosemite Valley on Hwy 140. and only 7 miles from historic Mariposa. Fresh eggs and garden produce for sale when available, just ask.
At Sanctuary of the Oaks we currently have 11 campsites. Sites #2 through #7, and #10 are tent sites. Sites #1 and #8 are group sites that can accommodate two or three tents. Site # 9 is a 12 ft x 14 ft wall tent set up on a wooden floor platform. And the RV1 site can accommodate up to a 20 ft RV, no hook ups. It is possible to park your vehicle in front of, or next to all of the sites. However most of the parking spots are small and not level. So if you are planning to sleep in your vehicle, we would recommend that you book either the RV1 site, or book one of the other sites and park in the ‘extra parking’ area next to the ‘round house.’

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Jim & Becky’s place is incredible - We used it as a base to do some Hiking in Yosemite and I can’t think of a better option! We arrived late but Jim & Becky we’re kind enough to drive out to meet us to say hi and make sure we settled in alright. Their place is really camper friendly and the facilities are all great (especially the showers) - there is plenty of wildlife to keep you company, but make sure that you bring some carrots / apples for Pete and Molly, their wonderful donkeys! We hope we’ll be able to stay here again in the future :)
We brought a pop-up tent trailer and a tent, so we ended up moving from the larger site#1 to the smaller but shadier RV#1. It was about 90 minutes to Yosemite Valley. We loved the hot showers and the communal cooking area which was equipped with a sink, outlet, stovetop, counter space and a cool oven that we never used. The outhouses were well maintained. The donkeys were cool. We fed them our banana peels and apple cores. The only cons are that the site has a lot of yellow jackets and a little less shade than we needed on a hot weekend with two huge dogs.
