First and foremost, the place is very nice and very well indicated in the description. The bath-and-toilet cabin is very well maintained and clean, and our hosts were very welcoming and helpful!

Loved this site! Nestled in the beautiful grassland/prairie of California this was an excellent place to come after staying in Yosemite. The hot shower gave us LIFE after our day spent hiking. We enjoyed a game of horseshoe & I read our books in the hammock. Thankful for the relaxing evening.

Loved the place and William was a great host. Fire ban meant we couldn’t use the firepit and we always came back too late at night to think about doing a bbq but that was fine. The restrooms and shower were in great condition and such a plus in the morning!

This camp is a gem! We stayed 3 nights in two sites with a 35 ft RV and a camper van. The sites had everything we needed: plenty of space, picnic table with umbrella, a hammock and potable water. The shower and bathroom were sparkling clean and conveniently located. There was a convenient sink for dishwashing outside the bathroom The kind and helpful host was very responsive to our questions before and during our trip. He gave us a hand written note with recommendations for our visit to the area. The location is peaceful and located about 45- 55 minutes from the South gate of Yosemite. They also have an air conditioned cabin in addition to the campsites. So pleased with our stay and would definitely recommend!

Circle W 5 is a remote but beautiful property with an easy access road and three nice spots side by side. The owners have built a fantastic bathroom/shower, each spot has a grill, a picnic table, a hammock, and was outstandingly clean overall. The owners checked in on us the next morning. The only criticism would be near nonstop barking, which started in the evening and didn't stop until at least 2am. We saw coyotes in the area on the way there, it seemed likely they were the neighbor's dogs barking, maybe at the coyotes. The end result was a pretty noisy night not very conducive sleep.

This place has been incredible enough we booked a second night! It has just the right outdoor feel for a quick one nighter on the way to Yosemite yet provides some great comforts like a shower or an ultra clean bathroom. Worth staying anytime!
