Wonderful hosts. Byo potty and water. It is dry camping. Sharing is caring spaces for use and encouraged in the yard. Enjoyed seeing coyote and bunnies. Real camping, easy accessibility, open minded environment. Clean with amenities and close to Yosemite.

Josephine was so sweet! The place has lots of helpful tools such as a microwave, fridge, freezer, lots of tables and chairs to enjoy dinner and friendly campers to talk to! We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed all of them. Josephine was great to talk to and cry welcoming, giving us a welcome gift and offered a bottle of wine. We would definitely stay here again when going to Yosemite!

Josephine and her husband are wonderful hosts. They went above and beyond to make us feel at home. Their property is rustic, beautiful and some 4 miles from Okhurst where one can find anything. I appreciated their welcoming presents, the jacuzzi, and the mosquito nets in the dinner table. It's best to bring your own cables if you have an RV. They have some, but sometimes are missing.

First off. Arriving there, we felt extremely welcomed by the lovely and very friendly owner Josephine. The stay was very nice and peaceful. It was exciting to meet other fellow campers. Everyone there was inviting and made us feel at home despite being over 200 miles from home. The yard was not very large, but it made it easy to get from our tent to the main area with a stove, refrigerator, bathroom, mosquito net, and games.

Josephine was delightful! A nice oasis after a day spent in Yosemite. 420 Destinations has all of the amenities we needed and then some. I have already recommended this gem!

I was staying at Josephine’s Hipcamp with my 7 year old daughter and we loved it. It was very hot during our stay but it still cooled down enough at night, and we were very comfortable in our tent.
Josephine is a wonderful host. She answered all my questions beforehand and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. We even got little gift bags upon our arrival. 💝
From Josephine’s Hipcamp it’s about 1hr45min to Yosemite Valley. Bass Lake is only a short drive away and was great fun! Check out the boat, paddle board and kayak rentals at the lake.

Thank you, Josephine for making our stay so memorable.
