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!!

Very private, but needs work.
Very difficult to stage our 36’ 5th wheel into our site. We were lucky that there were no other campers so we could use the whole area to get backed up. Entrance gate needs trees trimmed and porta-potty moved to give more access room. Site was very quiet and private, but piles of trimmed tree branches and junk lumber was a turnoff. Too high of price for what we got.
(1) The location was remote but had a good view of the night sky.
(2) The porta potties were smelly. They could have been better. It seems like they were not taken care of.
(3) There was no proper flat surface to do any sort of cooking, so we had to go to the bass lake.
Super quiet campground
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 :-)
Great stop over
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.
It really stood up to it's name Solitude. My family had a great time. We had the place for just us. The view of the mountains on the way is so gorgeous. Matthew os very accommodating.
True solitude :)
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
