This is a single tent campsite.
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 come through. Drive right up to your tent site (approx. 12'x14') which is about 200' from communal cooking area and 30' from the outhouse. Enjoy cooking in our communal outdoor kitchen equipped with a sink, counter tops, propane stove, and earth oven. Bring your dutch ovens and cook on our special fire brick table. Sit around the fire pit and tell stories or roast marshmallows 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 from Yosemite Valley and only 9 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 25 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.’

Sanctuary of the Oaks is a very sweet set up. They've built a covered cooking area with gas burners and a big sink, cutting boards and communal eating area. The pit toilets are the cleaners this side of the Rockies, with Purell. A walk through the property will take you to a pretty little waterfall and prolific wild flower, as the Earth recovers from last year's fires.
The sites are rather close together, but the lovely land and immaculate set up more than compensate for that.
Lovely site with a very clean bathroom close by! This site was nice and quiet--a great alternative to staying in Yosemite where you are in super close quarters and it is much louder! I would definitely return!
The hosts (Jim and Becky) were very nice, friendly and helpful. The camp was almost empty at the days of the week we stayed there. That was grate to use the hot shower after the day of wandering via the park. What was not expected that it takes about one hour to get the entrance to Yocemite. We thought it is closer but we could find it out if we were not in a hurry while booking.
Solo female camper here. Jim and Becky are great. My complaint is that there’s a big house just a stone’s throw away from the campsite, and the property was covered in broken down vehicles and garbage. It looked abandoned. During the night, cars kept coming to and from that area, and I constantly heard really strange noises coming from the space between that house and the campsite. I’ve been camping my whole life, and these were not wild animal noises. I ended up leaving and staying in a hotel for the night. When I got back the next morning, everything was fine, nothing messed with. So maybe I’m cray. But I was the only camper here, and I wouldn’t have stayed here by myself if I had seen the house next door before I came.
