Located 12.8 miles from the gate of Yosemite National Park (the closest Hipcamp to the South Entrance,) 5 miles to Bass Lake (8 minutes), 5 miles to Oakhurst (8 minutes), and 16 miles to Chukchansi Casino, you're ideally situated to enjoy the Sierra Nevada Mountain range right where the old stagecoach used to run to Yosemite. Nelder Giant Sequoia Grove is not too far away either. Oak trees, pine, and manzanita dot the site in a peaceful location. Located on 12.2 acres, our land is rural, undeveloped, mountainous, and gorgeous! Great views of the valley can also be seen. You may be accompanied potentially by a few other hipcampers. Please pack out what you pack in.

Rules: WE NEVER ALLOW FIRES, OR MUSIC as our guests come for peace and Solitude even if alone as sound carries through the canyons to other homes. A portable toilet is on site, but there is no water, or power as this is primitive land but cell service is just fine. There is a portable toilet available for our tenters. PLEASE KEEP EVERYTHING CLEAN IN THE TOILET AND PICKUP ANY TRASH anywhere you see it even if it's not yours please as this is how we keep the prices low. 

Note: A reservation through the The National Parks Service will be required to drive into or through Yosemite National Park from May 20 through September 30, 2022, for those driving into the park between 6 am and 4 pm. The good news is, we are the closest Hipcamp to the entrance of Yosemite so simply wake up early and drive through the gate before 6AM and enjoy your day in Yosemite without a reservation!!

Uns hat der süße Campground sehr gut gefallen. Wir hatten alles was wir brauchten und sind ganz unkompliziert und flexibel zu unserem Stellplatz gekommen. Es ist wirklich nur knapp vom Gate des Yosemite Nationalpark entfernt und daher perfekt wenn man dort keinen campground bekommt. Es ist sehr ruhig und friedlich in der Natur mit Blick auf die Berge. Wir können diesen Ort nur empfehlen :-)

We really liked the cute campground. We had everything we needed and got to our spot very easily and flexibly. It's really just a short distance from the Yosemite National Park gate, so perfect if you can't get a campground in there. It is very quiet and peaceful nature with mountain views. We really recommend this place :-)

The perfect place to rest the night before we entered Yosemite the next morning. Easy to find, felt a sense of safety behind the locked gate. Sites small and close together, so good for a group traveling together that need 4 sites.

Tent camped for our Yosemite trip at this sweet, private campsite nestled in the hills! We had plenty of space and were lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves. Instructions were easy to follow and the camp itself was only 25-30 minutes from the Yosemite entrance

Very quiet and secluded camping in a unique area overlooking Oakhurst. Matthew is a wonderful and caring host and he communicated expectations and was available whenever we contacted him. Not often, but it was nice when we did.
When i visit Yosemite again, I will definitely pick this place again. Much better than staying at the Park with all the noise and crowds.
Thank you, Matthew!

We had a peaceful stay here! If you’re looking for something that feels remote but is close to town and to Yosemite, this is your spot.

Very quiet place. Instructions to go to camp are very good. We enjoyed our stay. I recommend this place for people looking after very simple camp without equipment.
