This was a great RV camping spot near Yosemite! The property is LOVELY! Come for the location and the view. This spot is on the host's property a few hundred feet from their home, so it doesn't feel especially private, but it's an amazing location and the host was very hospitable. We loved the covered RV spot and the fire pit. It was very quite and on the way to the park. There are no bathrooms, so this is a great spot for a self contained RV. The driveway was very steep but we had no problem driving up or turning around our 15' RV. This is a great alternative to camping in Yosemite if you're looking for more privacy, more room, or a stop along the way.

There are a few places to pitch a tent.View from the back of our traileramenity fire pitOverview showing just how far the main house is from the camping area.
