Howdy Campers!  Red Dragonfly Ranch is open for hip campers for season 2.  A great place for you to come be in nature and be a base camp for your outdoor adventures in the Yosemite area!!!  Check us out! 

Creekside 1 is a spacious site along the creek, with room for multiple tents,  trailers or RV's and has a picnic table. If you have a van, camper, trailer or RV, you can back it into the site.  There is a gravel drivable loop through the property making it easy for towed vehicles.  There is plenty of space between sites for your privacy. A Porta potty, potable water, outdoor showers and a communal fire pit are available.

Our land was a site for gold mining back in the day and Cobb Creek runs through the property in the camping area with trickling water and frog songs to serenade you off to sleep. Some parts of the creek are dry during summer, but there are areas that are spring fed and have water year round.  There is also a pooled area in the creek to sit and enjoy cooling off after outdoor activities.  

We are 29 mi.  from the gate of Yosemite's 120 entrance. There are many outdoor activities available in the area such as hiking, biking, fishing, rafting, horseback riding, snow shoeing and of course sight seeing in this amazing and beautiful area where we live. Enjoy!

 NOTE for trailers/larger RV's:  Our main entrance is at an angle and trailers/larger RVs won't make the sharp turn if you are coming from the north via 120.   You can pass our driveway and turn around at the neighbors... OR ... If you come from the south through Coulterville / J132 / route 49 ... you can enter with ease. Coming this way also allows you to avoid climbing the steep grade roads of Hwy 120.

Had a great stay and would definitely return! I stayed two nights during the week and had the whole place to myself. Creekside #1 was in between another site and the communal firepit area, with just a short walk to the bathroom and the outdoor showers. Highly recommend the outdoor shower -- very well made! Adrienne, who lives on-site, was so sweet and I loved meeting her dog, Charlie, who watches over the property.

This was our second time back to this Hipcamp site. We were lucky to get the same site as we did last time. It’s so serene, and peaceful here, you don’t hwar much traffic and car passing by. All the sites are well placed and organized. The host was very accommodating and gave us a lot of space. Even though Yosemite just went through a tough wildfire, we were allowed (responsibly) to have a fire in the communal fire pit.

This place is a hidden gem. I was hesitant to write a review because i was being selfish and i kinda didn't want people to know about this place. It's perfectly located right outside of the yosemite national park (roughly 30-40 minute drive). The campsites were flat so easy to pitch your tent at and you practically park your car in front of your campsite for the creekside 1, 2 and the falls camp site. We came as a group of 15 and we booked these 3 sites. It was perfect as we were just 10ft away from each other. Charlie the dog is so adorable. But be careful as he is extremely smart so make sure you put away any of your leftovers! Vivian came in every morning during our stay to empty out the trash and just to say hi or just to drop off fresh eggs! Granted the showers didn't really any hot water but it was exactly what we needed after a long hot day. This was our first "real" camping experience and we all absolutely love it! Can't wait to go back again next year!

We got really late, but our host was very friendly and helpful. Even though it’s been dark and about 9:30-10pm, a guy on ATV wait for us to open the gate, and showed a direction to our site. Toilet was very clean, and the campsite itself looked really safe and cozy. Definitely recommend!

This camp site is right outside of Groveland with easy access to Yosemite, Hetch Hetchy, Carlon Falls and so much more. It’s a good base camp while exploring the area. Enjoyed the outdoor shower, clean port-a-potty and star gazing. Careful with the mosquitoes tho they will getcha.
