Corona-We are leaning on and trusting our Base Camp campers to take precautions to stay safe and to use 6 feet distance which you should use your best judgement   We have 20 acres of land to spread out on.  We are asking each camper to clean the bathroom and shower area before and after as we would not be able to do this after each use.  Stay safe and be well!

                                              🙏🏻 PLEASE READ🙏🏻 

If you are looking for man made and leveled flat campsites, then this is not your basecamp. I offer a very sacred, historical, gorgeous 20 acre space to find your peace of mind and pitch a tent or hammock, as you would when hiking the backcountry. This is in no way (except for the complimentary ice water, potty, shower,  shower soaps, sanitizer, sunscreen first aid and dishwashing area) a GLAMP destination. If you are truly a person who appreciates nature and making due with what the land has provided, WELCOME! 

If you don’t find joy in sleeping under a sky full of stars and the sounds of pines whispering as the breeze flows through the trees that were here hundreds of years before you and your iPad, please keep searching for a better fit. 

The spots are designated to a large area (20 acres) and you can choose to find your secluded, or socially distanced spot. Again, please understand that this is not GLAMPING. 

We are a base camp. this is for people that know how to camp in the backcountry, without a trash can, who don’t leave cigarette butts, respect the land and would rather not be sectioned off in a public campsite filled with people and whatever amenities that entails.

Flat areas are all over if you can walk, and use your feet to brush aside rocks and twigs, to lay down a tent base, as we do every time we camp in the backcountry.

The geography of these mountains is just that, hills and mountains. The vista at the top of the property is gorgeous and easily camps 5 tents spaced out. While at first glimpse, you’d tend to see just the vista and a large excavator area as two huge flattish areas, there are low ground sites and tucked off areas if you take a stroll and familiarize yourself with the property. I’m more than happy to point them out if you find yourself in a rush out here in the country  ✌🏻😉

Yosemite is 30 minutes away, Don Pedro lake is 30 minutes, Cherry Lake is 30 minutes, Preston falls and Carlon falls are both 30 min away with fewer crowds. Downtown Groveland Is 10 minutes away, and other historic towns are not too far. Close to many swimming holes. Rainbow pools is 15 minutes away. 10 min from the local grocery store and other local shops. Base Camp is just off of highway 120. Sonora has a great farmers market on Sunday and is a beautiful 40 min drive away.

About an hour from Yosemite valley (30 mins to park gate) so the location is nice. In the winter it may be preferable to stay here rather than the park because it may be slightly warmer due to its lower elevation.

Host was very responsive and camping area was quiet and well kept. Amazing views of the stars

Hipcamper Tamie

Definitely worth it

What a beautiful place to stay and so close to Yosemite. Jarrett is so nice and well accommodating. Plenty of space for dispersed camping though the top of the hill was my favorite. The morning view was beautiful. Definitely would stay here again.

Jarett is a very friendly host. Showed me the place around and an amazing camping area with good views and all the amenities mentioned in the listing. Only ~45 mins away from Yosemite National Park and very close to highway - 120 & Groveland so easy to get in and get out as needed. Definitely will be back when I plan my next trip to Yosemite National Park.

on a cold end October night we had the luck of being alone in the camp. So nature’s sounds were disturbed only by the occasional car on the 120, which is not very far. The camp is conventiently located on a hilltop accessible by car, which makes for a nice view. We had a beautiful starry night, and watching the milky way disappear as the moon rose over the Sierra Nevada was quite unique. A great place to stay at the doors of Yosemite!

Jarrett, Bo and Wanda were wonderful hosts, and what a beautiful camping area! There was a large amount of land to explore and set up my tent, but I chose to go with the top of the hill because of the beauty there.

Amenities-wise, there was everything you could need- shower, bathroom, and a hose was in a nice area a short 5 min walk from where I set up my tent.

I spent a lot of time exploring Yosemite, which was only a 20 min drive to get to the entrance.

I would definitely camp here again and recommend it to anyone that wants to really get away from the hustle and bustle of usual campgrounds, and actually spend some time in nature.

My sister and I came to camp here for a girls trip! We booked this trip before finding out I was pregnant with twins! Jarrett was very nice and communicative. His campsites were very clean and felt super safe! Being able to take a shower before crawling into our camp was such a pleasant surprise and made the stay that much better! Boo the camp dog brought so many smiles to our trip and was such a love bug! I highly recommend booking this site
