I loved this site. My husband was less than enthused at first (he's been spoiled with redwood forest camping). This campground is located in an old Jewish summer camp. I personally loved the quiet, kind of run-down look of the cabins around us. The campground itself isn't very flat, so getting the right spot for your tent is key. Nearby there is a lake and a dam, so there is the constant sound of rushing water in the distance, which I loved. The hosts were very helpful and checked on us to make sure we had everything we need.

Great private place to camp. If you like being away from the crowed this is the place. Bathrooms were decent. Exploring the area was fun. Peacful area and no one bothered us all weekend. Short car ride to Yosemite Valley loop.

We very much enjoyed exploring this place. There are lots of trails and access to the river and lake. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming with good information to share.
We are planning to come back with the kids.

Campsite was safe and quiet. Host was pleasant and provided a sufficient amount of firewood for our party. We all enjoyed our stay. Appreciated that toilet paper, hand soap and paper towels were replenished often in the restrooms. There is a market nearby if you forget any items. We also liked how we can park next to our campsite and there was a lot of space!

This is a beautiful area with plenty of space for a group. The river and lake are a bit farther than expected but its an easy walk. The bunk house is only screened in so bring your layers

We stayed here while participating in the Yosemite Half Marathon! Was about 25mins from the race expo and the shuttle pick up for the race, but it worked out perfectly for us!
The facilities like shower/bathroom were very run down, but for camping it worked out great. Jeanette and Adrian were great hosts and very helpful! Jeanette even found some bug spray for us to use when we forgot ours. We felt extremely safe in this beautiful space, and wish we could’ve stayed longer!

Jeannette was a really great host - she was very responsive and gave informative answers to all our questions immediately. We were able to book a guide through Jeannette for fishing and rented a canoe ($55 all day). Bob, our fishing guide, was really helpful and knowledgable. He was also super nice and even let us borrow some of his tools that we didn't have for fishing! The lake that we fished at and canoed on was right on the property, which made it really convenient. It's about a 10-15 minute walk away. Driving is also an option but you would need an AWD or at least a 4WD to drive through the property. There were also a bucket of water and fire distinguisher (filled with water) placed next to us to put out our campfire at night, which was really convenient and thoughtful. Jeannette and Bob were really great and we felt safe and welcomed.

The only thing to be wary of is the yellowjacket wasps. It may be because it was summer but there were SO MANY of them especially when we were eating. It really ruined our experience at times because they really prevented us from cooking and eating in peace. Other than that, we just wished there were more clear signs of where everything was but everything else was great!

We had a group of 5 (college friends 27-30yrs) staying at the camp site. 1 word resonates our stay: AMAZING . We came to unwind and have a good birthday long weekend, Jeanette and Bobby were beyond helpful making it perfect. We got firewood brought every day, they helped planning our day and we loved kayaking and fishing. Despite how helpful they were, they also super respected our privacy and we felt super at ease and had our own large space to play around our area. Our group is already planning out next trip here! Thank you so much to the both of them!

This was a great campsite. The location is great and the campsite host is very communicative and accommodating. They really went the extra step to set up to make sure that site was set up for us, there was firewood, bucket of water ready to put out the fire, etc. There's bathrooms with showers near the camp, nothing fancy, but they work. They campsite itself is very large, with lots of flat spots for tents. There's a ranch next to the campsite with cabins and there's horses and a llama that occasionally wander through the field. All in all we had a great time here.
