***CAMPSITE 8 JOSEPHINE***

This is an adorable, vintage, Shasta travel trailer outfitted with everything a couple needs to stay cozy for a weekend. Just bring your sleeping bags or linens to throw over our decorative bedding.

Ferretti Farm is a wonderful place to relax under the same trees and stars that are found in Yosemite National Park. The park entrance is just 26 miles away.

COVID-19 STUFF:

While we offer soap, hot water and disinfectant spray we trust that our campers are taking precautions to stay safe and will practice social distancing while staying with us. We do not have anything marked, as we trust that we all are aware of how far 6 feet apart is. ;) We are not able to clean our bathroom after each guest and ask each camper to clean up before and after themselves to ensure their own safety. Our bathrooms and outdoor kitchen are cleaned and disinfected regularly. Sadly, someone has already stolen some of the cleaning supplies we had out for guest use and we can't afford to keep giving away free things, so we've had to keep those put away for our use.

We know that YOU would never do that....

Thanks for understanding!!!

WHAT WE ARE:

We are a Hipcamp that offers our guests a clean, hot shower and two indoor toilets. Pretty rad, right?! We are people who are utilizing a very old, funky mobile home to make some money and pay off our land while living in the shabby chic cottage on site. We are a peaceful place in historic downtown Groveland to enjoy a glamping experience in one of our beautiful, canvas tents, stay in our fully equipped 18 foot RV, pitch your own tent, or park your RV under the same pines and oaks that fill Yosemite National Park. We are a new venture on a property that has been mistreated for years and we are loving it back to health on a very limited budget. We are a place that has a super cool, vintage, outdoor kitchen with hot water & cold water, a 1950 Wedgewood gas range with four burners, a bar with 4 stools and an umbrella and a small propane bbq. We are a 3-5 minute walk from the public transit system into Yosemite. Check out YARTS dot com online for schedules. WE ARE AN AWESOME PLACE TO BE!!!

WHAT WE ARE NOT:

We are not a snooty, high end, generously funded campground with brand new furniture, a pristine campfire ring, manicured sites and marble showers. (Although, we are people who love to visit those places!)

Marie is equipped with what you need to heat up take out or make a simple, single skillet meal and dine inside with the A/C on! Of course, you'll wash all cooking/dining ware and leave them in the drain for the host. wink wink We ask that all serious cooking be done in the outdoor kitchen.

Bring your own sleeping bags/linens to lay over the decorative bedding and your own towels for the shower. The toilet is out of order, but there are two in the mobile home right next door.

Please let me know you've read this far by telling me how many smokers are in your group when you send your booking request.

Just 26 miles from the gate with Main Street Groveland just a quick walk down the back streets of the Gold Rush Town. Enjoy dinner and drinks at The Iron Door Saloon, the oldest continuously operating Saloon this side of the Mississippi. Or enjoy the high end Bourbon Bar and small bites at the Groveland Hotel's Provisions and then take a stroll down Main Street to the Hotel Charlotte for a full dinner and cocktails at the full bar. Sleep soundly in the peace and quiet of the park like setting before or after your adventure in breathtaking Yosemite.
