Pitch your tent under the stars next to Oaks, Pines, Manzanita, and Willows near Whitlock Creek (seasonal) in Gold Country.

Places to see near Debra B.’s Land
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Debra was very communicative, helpful, and responsive. The site was close to both Mariposa and about an hour outside of Yosemite. I unfortunately only stayed one out of the three nights I was booked because the road down to the site was too rough for my van. If you plan on actually sleeping in the car and driving down to the site, I recommend a high clearance, 4WD vehicle (I had neither). For campers who would just simply pitch a tent on site, no problems at all there. Debra and her husband said they were going to patch up the road a bit, so just check in with them when you book.
Great yosemite getaway option
Getting a campsite in Yosemite last minute is pretty much impossible, so camping here was a fun and convenient alternative for a spontaneous weekend getaway. The campsite is beautiful and feels private. Would definitely recommend!
