Yosemite Garden Camp is on 10 acres of grassy meadows, pine and oak trees, and manzanita chaparral in the lower Sierra Nevada mountains, near the town of Groveland, outside Yosemite National Park.

The property includes a large vegetable garden and a small vineyard, and borders Federal Bureau of Land Management land. Most of the property has sweeping views across the Central Valley to the Coast Ranges to the west. Sunsets are breathtaking. Yosemite National Park, with endless hiking, backpacking, climbing and swimming, is about 1 hour away by car. Even closer is the Stanislaus National Forest and the Tuolumne River. The town of Groveland has some great bars, cafes and restaurants, and a good grocery store.

There is a bathroom shack in the middle of the property with a flush toilet, a sink, and a hot shower. The water is clean and drinkable. There is also a communal fire pit and a communal picnic table.

The vineyard walk-in tent site is for campers who want a little extra privacy and don't mind walking a couple of minutes up a hill to the bathroom and parking area. The site is a flat spot below the fence, with the vineyard at your back and beautiful views of the surrounding BLM land and beyond to the west. The flat area is only 8X10 feet (about 3X3 meters), so it is not suitable for a large tent or multiple tents. Also, as it is about 300 feet from parking, down a hill, it is not suitable for campers with a lot of big, heavy items.

Note that Yosemite Garden Camp is on a very rough dirt road. People do drive sedans up it, but higher clearance is highly recommended and 4-wheel drive is necessary in winter.

This place is magical. It's only 3ish miles from town, but it's up a very secluded back road. I personally wouldn't drive a sedan up this road unless it was a rental. You're gonna want at least a Subaru or small Suv to navigate the road. It was particularly bad during our stay due to a recent flash flood. Honestly - the crazy road was a bonus to me!

Theres running water and limited power available. My Verizon phone got service, but I left it in the car all weekend. Three campsites with a decent amount of space between them - much more private than your average camping spot.

Can't wait to go again! Thanks Geoff!

The site was amazing, had incredible views and was very comfortable. The whole property is fenced in so we were able to comfortably let our dog roam. We will definitely recommend this site and plan to be back.

Geoff was great and very helpful. The directions were correct. Right when I started to think I was in the wrong place, I got to a neighbor's house described in the directions. Go slow - the road is very rutted.

The site itself was nice and the sunset view really was gorgeous.
