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.

Tent Site 2 is about 100 feet from the parking area and facilities, below the vegetable garden and above the vineyard. There are several other tent sites on the property, with varying degrees of privacy versus convenience to the bathroom, the fire pit, the communal picnic table and the parking area. Let me know what your priorities are and I can direct you to the best option.

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.

Our stay was wonderful! Our group was pretty last minute in booking any sort of lodging before spending a weekend in Yosemite, and Geoff was extremely communicative and accommodating. The bathroom and showers were clean and well kept, the grounds were spacious, and we enjoyed the company of a few friendly dogs. During our stay, Geoff was in the midst of building a pizza oven with his bare hands. Looking forward to coming back and using it! :)

We had a wonderful stay here! The site is beautiful and so private. We stayed up chatting and shared dinner with Alex, one of the two hosts living on-site. It definitely is a rough road to get out there but just beware (we made it in a small Prius so you'll be fine!) We unfortunately had to leave a day early because of the wild fires but we're absolutely planning to come back soon and stay here again in the future!

Thanks, Geoff!
