Covid-19: We are open and hosting a limited number of campers during Covid-19 emergency. As hosts, we follow the guidelines presented by Center for Disease Control and Hipcamp Host Covid-19 Certification. We expect you as guests to do the same. All our camp sites are outdoors and spaced at least 100 feet apart. There are really no common areas. Gathering together is cool just not at the house. 

In preparing, READ the listing carefully. Campers should bring all the camping gear needed (got to :10 Essentials of Backpacking and Camping). Do not overpack and refrain from using gigantic tents. Keep ALL food stored in coolers, car, and/or dry good boxes to discourage animals from the campsites. 

Xico, Mehmet, and the people who come here respect the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.

Upon confirmation, you will receive the gate code. Please make sure you get it.

Coyote View is one of our favorite spots on the land. It is a raised area of an ancient river bed that looks out from a slight rise on the land in all four directions with beautiful views of the eastern sun/moonrise and amazing stargazing. And there is absolutely no light pollution. 

Please note: This spot is completely exposed to sun and gets very hot (100 F) during the day in the summer and perfectly warm and toasty in the winter. It's the best spot for star gazing with zero light pollution (and we mean zero!). This site is about a 5 minute walk to the bathroom and parking. an Eazy-Up is useful.

You are responsible for taking your trash and recycling with you. 

Guided Activities

RECREATIONISTS PLEASE NOTE that we offer guided road bike and mountain bike excursions that can be catered to you! We can put you on world-class single track, technical and road bike trails!

The ride will take you through high Sierra meadows, Giant sequoia groves, Quaking Aspen forests, iconic granite outcroppings, all under perfect blue skies with clean air to breath (Yeah, remember that?). We will transport your bikes from the Land to the start point on the Western Divide, and provide  healthy, simple snacks along the way, and transport back down to camp. Costs are on a sliding scale of $50/person.

II. Single track, technical mountain bike rides can be launched from Camp Nelson Trail in the GSNM (technical) or rides that launch right from the Land onto foothill trails that double as the route for the Fat Tire Classic occurring in October (moderate, technical). We will transport your bikes from the Land to the start point on the Western Divide, and provide  healthy, simple snacks along the way, and transport back down to camp. Costs are on a sliding scale of $50/person.

III. (Winter and Spring only) Also, we offer the ultimate RECREATION EXPERIENCE by guiding you, our guests, in meaningful habitat stewardship projects either on the Land near your campsite or within the nearby Giant Sequoia National Monument. All stewardship projects  are free of charge though we do invite you to become a member of WildPlaces, the non-profit arm of our Land that has been protecting and conserving wild places in the area for 20 years.

Coyote View campsite is located at the back of the property and is a slightly raised plateau that provides sweeping views of the surrounding countryside. While Coyote View is a bring-your-own-tent type of site, there is a raised platform that could be used to place gear and probably even sleep on if you needed to. Coyote View campsite provides beauty and views galore, but you should be prepared to bring all of your other equipment. There is water available on site, but you should plan on bringing something to store the water and possibly even a portable shade for the hot summer months. This is a walk-in site, so be prepared to pack all of your stuff with you as you make your way out to Coyote View, but don't worry, it's less than 1/4 mile walk.

The Coyote View site is a great place to enjoy some solitude and to relax for a bit, but you are not expected to remain confined to your site while on your stay. Just a short walk form Coyote View is a path that leads down to the Tule river, which runs through the property and provides many areas to explore up and down the property. There is also a seasonal, communal firepit that can be used when the conditions are right. Mehmet and Chico (landowners) are kind enough to provide outdoor kitchen essentials at the main house and that is a great place to fulfill your cooking needs. There is also a very nice community dining area near the main house with many different areas relax and enjoy the property from. Not only is this a good location to use a jump-off for the high country, including Sequoia and Kings Canyon NP, it is a great weekend getaway spot that also offers land stewardship opportunities. Either way you look at it, this place should be on your list.

For those who may not have all of the necessary equipment there are two other sites that provide sleeping areas. One of the sites has two suspending beds, camp chairs, a small table, and large water container (what more can you ask for). The other site is a very large tent that has a full size bed and still has ample room to stand up and move around. I suggest bringing your own bedding for either of those options (sheets for the full bed and sleeping bags/blankets for the suspended beds). While each of the sites are a stone's throw away they are much more private than any campsites that can be found at public sites. I encourage you to check them out as it would be hard to go wrong with any of the options up at Coyote View.Hope

The big tent is just down a short path from Coyote View and despite being relatively close, still offers its own privacyThere are great spots like this sprinkled all around the property.I could only imagine what this property would look like when green and full of lifeMake it down to the river and enjoy one the nice hang spots

This was a lovely site on some very lovely land. After days of car camping in crowded NPS campgrounds during the holidays, it was great to switch into backpacker-lite mode and sleep in a quiet field under the stars. Mehmet and Chico were welcoming hosts and we were grateful for use of the fire pit during the chilly nights.

This spot is a great place to get away from the busy city. Mehmet/Chico were very accommodating when we arrived. They have really nice amenities including a very clean shower and decorated lounge area/property. The campground was isolated and cool at night. Also, there is a nice river on the property to cool off on a hot summer day. My friends and I hope to visit again.

The host is really really kindness for us but
We should be very quite after 9pm ( any cooking, any fire near my tent)
And then We couldn't use refrigiator even just for an hour and you have to bring everything. Literally everything. Don't expect any stuff for you. And there is only one bbq fits which mean is if other group use a bbq fits, you can't use it.
Even you already bought a beef. You can't
And then after 9pm you can't use a bbq fits.
They are kind of strict. But really nice place

Coyote view campsite was good at night for star glazing and moon rise from the mountains are stunning. During day as there’s no shade, we were forced to go to river due to heat. Having said that river inside the property is a huge plus and 5 mins walk. The downside of the campsite is there’s 3-5 min walk from the car and if there are lot of things to be brought, then it’s a bit of work. Overall good experience.
