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! 

The Falls is a large site overlooking the creek, with room for multiple tents, car camping, trailer or RV, and has a picnic table. There is plenty of space between sites for your privacy. This site is right across the driveway from the shower area.  Your vehicle can be parked at the roadside to give more privacy from the shower area. 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.

Viviene, Leo, and this HipCamp spot was fantastic! The host was quick on responses when we booked, and was communicative beforehand and on how to enter when we arrived late.

The facilities are a perfect HipCamp spot. Simple but very functional. We loved the outdoor cedar shower area and the spots were private. It was the dry season in Cali, but during the rainy season this area would be incredible with the stream nearby flowing.

Thank you HipCamp Hosts! Nicely done and this is a wonderful site, especially for those going to Yosemite.

We loved camping on Vivian’s land. They have a beautiful farm with goats and chickens. We even got fresh eggs for breakfast. The campsites are spread out and very spacious. They have a great outdoor shower and the port-a potty was very clean.

Gate to enter is ~ 5 minutes down the road from the main highway. Spacious campsite with portapotty and outdoor showers. Shared campfires were nice! Her dogs barked all night, kept us up. If you are a light sleeper I would bring earplugs.

Close enough to Yosemite. Overall okay experience.

Response from Vivian, the Host, on October 5th, 2021

Thanks for taking time to write a review Jay. Sorry the dogs kept you up. They do not bark all the time. They are here to keep wildlife away, and sometimes, if something is in the area wandering through they will be barking. Its just the nature of having a large piece of land. They are doing their job to keep us safe. Im glad you enjoyed the other aspects. Many Blessings

Amazing property for kids to explore and make new friends. They discovered beautiful rocks, fed the chickens and came back with fresh eggs! ! Dogs were absolute sweethearts. Smores with new friends at communal firepit, clean water and showers,, can't say enough about what you've done with this land, Pamela. You're a wonderful host, can't wait to come back with the whole family!

Pamela was amazing. Very helpful. The camp site had a table and some flat terrain where we set up the tent. There are two amazing and friendly dogs in this camp and we loved it. I'd highly recommend it. The showers were outside, no roof which can be a problem on rainy or cold days but for us was okay.
