1 Glamping
2 Vehicle/Tent
Camp in the county with beautiful sunsets, sunrises, and night sky. A & M Ranch (40 acres) is located 10 min north of Fresno and near Hwy 41 which leads to the mountains. Many travelers stop here on their way to the national parks (Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Sequoia). We are also close to hiking trails, lakes, Sierra mountains, wineries, farmers' markets, and casinos. When you arrive, you will see our four alpacas in their pen. We have designated spots for Tent camping, although if you'd like another spot for tent camping let us know. We also have a large Canvas tent for Glamping. Each site is listed separately. We are listed on other platforms, so there may be other guests here. Marta also has she shop if you are interested in refurbished items or alpaca products. We are not a day camp, so if you stay a few nights, we expect you will be out most of the day. You may hear coyotes at night, see lots of squirrels and wild bunnies. Be careful of squirrel holes. We are generally only open Fri. Sat, however, we do make exceptions. Please read the rules and safety.

This was a beautiful area with fruit farms on one side, fields on the other and views of the mountains in the distance. Not too far from town but very quiet at night. You could hear the coyotes at night which was really cool. We met the alpacas who are hilarious and rocking their own odd personalities.

Easy stopover before Yosemite!
Perfect location! Close enough to the highway and plenty of space park to our campervan for the evening before heading out early to continue up to Yosemite. Very friendly hosts and would highly recommend for a quick stay. Loved meeting the alpacas and pups!

Fed the alpacas!!
Arnold and Marta were so welcoming to their beautiful alpaca farm. Arnold met me when I arrived as he was about to feed the alpacas. He allowed me to help which was so super cool! The alpacas had just been sheeted a few days before so we’re not all fluffy but still super cute. Then it property is expansive and I took a walk around with Marta. I would definitely visit again!

Not quite ready for prime time
The positives are, conveniently close to Fresno and not far off the highway. It feels like your in the countryside. Quit and away from the city lights for A peaceful stay. This location is not really finished. No designated parking areas or even an area to put out lounge chairs to have an outdoor coffee or glass of wine. No alpacas and you feel like you’re a little bit in the way.

The best weekend!
Such a great weekend! My bf and I love alpacas so we were thrilled to find Marta and Arnold’s place. We stayed for 2 nights, spending the second day out in Yosemite. Marta and Arnold were wonderful hosts, really accommodating and welcoming. The Alpaca tour was great as well. Very informative and fun. Highly recommend!

Great place to stay the night. I was on a road trip to pick up my fam and wanted to camp out of my wagon. I was able to park in their rv driveway, use the restroom, and make myself some food. I arrived late in the evening with no issues. Arnold and marta were very responsive to text and communication. The next morning i woke up early, made myself some coffee on my Coleman stove. Arnold came out and we talked about family and alpacas while i drank my coffee.... great, relaxing morning on their property. Would definitely come back!!

Perfect oasis close to N.Parks!
Marta and Arnold's place was wonderful! The yard with the alpacas and sites was setup very nicely and had lights that kept the outdoor space lit when the sun went down. The amenities are as outlined in the listing and their dogs are absolutely wonderful! I would definitely recommend their place - within driving distance from Sequoia (where I went for the day) and would visit again in the future when I am in the area.

AKA Camping with Leia, Your New BFF
This Hipcamp has the most amenities I've seen (like access to a real shower 😭) and is great for groups or meeting other campers. Nights are quiet and peaceful if you don't mind a few animal calls. It is important to consider in your daily schedule that you essentially must leave the property whenever both Arnold and Marta leave for work, which they'll inform of before booking. Apart from that limitation, five stars!

Chill place to rest
Great place to overnight on the way to Yosemite! Although we didn't use it, there was an awesome outdoor area to do all your cooking. Marta was very helpful and friendly. Dog people will love her 3 white GSDs and feeding the alpacas was super fun! It is very quiet and peaceful at night except for the occasional barks of hunting coyotes and you WILL hear roosters at the crack of dawn. Highly recommend!

Camp with the Alpacas
Me and some friends came out to camp with the alpacas after our reservations to Sequoia were cancelled. Marta and Arnorld were friendly and so was their puppy. The backyard had everthing we would want in a camp kitchen. I also loved the fact that there was little to no light pollution at this location so I was able to catch some shooting stars!! I would definitely camp with them again if I had the chance.

Don’t expect to see alpacas. Your campsite is a fenced in back yard.

Arnold and Martha accommodated a last minute booking and late arrival which was greatly appreciated. The location is central and perfect if you are on your way to the Sierra (Yosemite, Kings or Sequoia). And the alpaca experience was great. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks.

Nurturing Alpaca Experience
The place was a very beautiful experience for me and my 9 y/o Daughter, she got to walk Jr, and learn from Marta & Arnold valuable information about alpacas, she had crafts and activities for her, so she was very very happy. The view of the starts from the camp site was mesmerizing and the dogs at the property topped the experience even more :) I highly recommend this campsite for families with kids, or animal lovers couples!

This would have been an incredible camping experience without the alpacas. That being said, learning about them and camping out all night next to them made it magical. Arnold and Marta are wonderful hosts and were there for any needs we had. Fantastic and unique experience I would sign up for, again, in a heartbeat.

Arnold and Marta are some of the kindest, most hospitable people we've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Their site is amazing and we definitely recommend doing the alpaca walk! The alpacas and 3 dogs were so great to be around. Definitely was a refreshing stay.

Camp with the Alpacas
Very neat little farm. Nice couple. Not very talkative. Dog poo in the designated area for tent. Neighborhood dogs barked all night long. I think it’s great for a motor home or camper but not great for tents due to noise and dog poo. The alpacas were adorable to watch. Nice tables set up and nice lighting for evenings. Must like dogs. They will say hello to you in the middle of the night which we got a kick out of but definitely hindered our rest. So again, great for motorhome but not for tent camping.
