Bill and Josephine were excellent hosts. They provide so many great amenities in the form of:

- Outdoor refrigeration
- Microwave, cooking utensils, grill
- EZ Ups for shade
- Games

Their property was easy to find and if you are planning on going to Yosemite, this is a great spot for those traveling by air who may want to be packing light.

We needed a place to park our camping van and Josephine’s place was perfectly situated, just 35 minutes from Yosemite’s south entrance. She was very friendly and greeted us each day. Great hostess!

Josephine’s property was a good place to stay. We were 30 minutes from the entrance to Yosemite. It was really nice to have access to a grill, microwave, and mini fridge. Josephine is very friendly and responsive. We would stay definitely here again, but in the sunny summer heat, it was difficult not being able to shower. But that’s camping!

Loved our stay, felt safe which was important because we were first time visitors to the area. Yosemite valley is 1.5 hrs from this location, 52 miles. Not idea for us and honestly had I known we would have picked another location. Josephine was nice but a bit much. I was exhausted and just wanted to park and sleep in our camper van. Instead she wanted to introduce me to everyone and took an awkward pic of me. Also gave me a bag of weed and wine. I was traveling with my fourteen year old. Not appropriate and no welcome. Really wish we had stayed somewhere else. Also had to book two days and we decided to not go back.

Response from Josephine, the Host, on August 18th, 2021

Christina, thank you for your comments. We try to make this place safe & secure, so I'm happy that you appreciated that. I offer wine and CBD to guests and have never been turned down (not by you either) as campers are surprised and appreciative. We have guests who tell us they never saw a host & appreciate the opportunity to hear about local places and activities. I wish you had been open & honest because you never said a word about the wine, CBD or us visiting. You should have turned down the wine and told me to get lost if I bothered you so much. As for the south gate to Yosemite it is 23 miles away & debated as the best entry via the tunnel and emerging out at the tunnel view. There are dozens of opinions about this on the internet, but it depends on the eye/taste of the viewer. Again I wish you would have opened up to me and given me your opinions face to face. I wish you better travels with your daughter in the future.

Josephine was incredible and the campsite was perfect. She has EVERYTHING you need! There’s plenty of stores and restaurants nearby if you need anything from there as well. We had an amazing time. Thank you so much to Josephine for everything.
