The Lookout, The Wheelhouse, The Tugboat, the Tower of Power, the Poop Deck: everyone want to call this place something silly and unique, but one thing is for sure, this place is a glorious place to sleep.

Built on a large platform creating shade for our solar-power-generating shipping container, Hipcampers walk up a flight of stairs to enjoy 360 views out to the solar panels, our farm kitchen and living room, our neighbor's horse barn, and our water storage battery. All of the materials this cabin is built from tell a delightful story of creativity and ecological sustainability. This place screams off-grid.

Windows are removed during the summer half of the year, and wall panels fold out of the way to maximize airflow and still guarantee privacy. There is even a small electrical outlet so campers can charge their devices or enjoy a little nighttime reading. There is a super comfortable full sized bed, and additional campers should bring a tent or tarp to sleep on, and bedding to spread out on the flat area just below the platform.

We're also getting ready to refurbish our solar heated outdoor shower that will serve folks that are camping at the lookout!

We ask campers to please avoid hanging out out by the solar panels the cabin looks out onto, as they are fragile and important, and the location is not protected from falls.

Excellent little farm right after (or before) you come to Priests Grade. The working farm is lovely and the folks who live on the farm (mostly young adults interested in sustainability and farming) are as talkative as you like or leave you alone if that’s your jam. The lookout is an open air room at the back of the main complex. While it has electricity- the communal compost toilet and propane powered shower are a few hundred feet away. There is also a full service communal kitchen that you can use. While I wouldn’t cook gourmet meals (given the space constraints) it’s a great upgrade from a camp stove. And there is a refrigerator. Great location for coming in to the Park or for chilling before headed back to the Bay Area. A wee bit far for using as a hub for trips in to Yosemite but we did it (we decided at the eleventh hour to head to Yosemite for Memorial Day weekend). Closest to the Big Oak flat entrance to the park and Hetch Hetchy, and about an hour to the Valley with no traffic.

Wondernut Farm is a great place with amazing hosts. The farm is beautiful and about as close as you can get to Yosemite without being in the park. The Lookout is a just off from the main kitchen which is the major social area. The Lookout has easy access and 360 degrees views of the farm. Highly recommended!

Carrie and Eve were delightful hosts. This was a jewel of a landscaper and stop-over before my children and I entered Yosemite. Wonderful evening breeze though our open space and cozy comfortable bed. The highlight was my children being all about Carrie's farm and enjoying her hand crafted goat yogurt, feta and other amazing cheeses during our stay and we'll into our Yosemite camping experience. YUMMY!

Loved the space and it was amazing to spend time learning a lot about life on a farm. Absolutely loved waking up to roosters and watching the goats being milked. We had the best sheeps milk coffee ever! And can not wait to go back for more.

Very cool spot on a fully functional goat/pig/sheep farm. The hosts are very interesting and happy to tell you about their operation, they even have excellent cheese for sale. It's definitely a rustic vibe and very hot during the day but as a place to stay and learn a bit about what it takes to run a farm, it's a perfect experience,
