It was absolutely beautiful! Quiet yet close to the small mountain town of Coarsegold if you need any supplies. The sunsets at Michele's place were amazing also. Definitely will be back on the next trip to California.

Due to wildfire restrictions, our Summerdale Campground reservations were cancelled a week before our trip. We found Michele's space at the last minute and were BLOWN AWAY by our good fortune. This is like camping in the backyard of your favorite aunt & uncle. You can camp anywhere on their property or just outside their guest house on fluffy sod, which we chose, and have full access to the clean, modern, full-sized kitchen and bath in the guest house. You may end up sharing the kitchen and bath with other campers or AirBnB-ers who stay inside the guesthouse, but my boyfriend and I were lucky enough to have the lawn, the guesthouse, the giant deck, and cornhole game to ourselves. Michele's husband Sean is a DIY genius and built the house, guesthouse, deck, and multiple tiny cabins all over the property. They are lovely, generous hosts that you really wish were your family you could visit throughout the year.

Without traffic, the property is about 45 minutes from Yosemite's south entrance and 90 minutes to Yosemite Valley. We woke up before dawn to get to the park before long lines formed, but we were able to come back to home base for hot showers, grilled steaks, the buzz of a dozen hummingbirds, and awesome sunsets.

My husband and I had such a great stay at Michele's!

After the cancellation of our camp reservation in the national forest, we luckily found Michele's place. She was always very prompt to respond to my messages, and helpful with any questions I had.

The actual camping location was wonderful. A lush grassy area in her backyard, overlooking beautiful trees and nature. A ton of birds made for a beautiful song when waking up in the morning. We had access to a common area, kitchen and bathroom (in AC to escape the heat of the day if needed).

We would absolutely enjoy her place again! Thank you so much, Michele!
