Come hang on our awesome location located just 11 miles outside of Yosemite National Park. We have plenty of space for your Camper van. These sites are located towards the top of the property and have amazing views of the surrounding area. 4x4 is recommended but not mandatory along the dirt road. You’ll be rewarded with epic panoramic views. 

These are areas are relatively flat and provide a very nice view of the surrounding area. There is very almost no shade in this area but we have found campers with vans are awnings do not mind at all.

Please respect the land and leave no trace. There is no water / electricity / bathrooms at the sites however our main area (12 min walk down the ridge) does have bathrooms, showers, laundry and wifi. Cellular service works great at the sites.

We are very close to rainbow pools (4 min), which is a beautiful water fall and swimming pool. 

We are 11 miles from the entrance to Yosemite National Park

We are 11 miles from the city of Groveland, CA.

The ridge is a nice spot to stay in a pinch, I just wish it were a little on the cheaper side. Pretty sunset spot and a quiet campground. We were the only ones on the ridge campsite when we stayed.

Terrific experience - but with a couple caveats. We booked one of the dry campervan spaces before we read the reviews of the larger campground. When we started reading those, we were a bit worried. Lots of complaints about maintenance, showers, toilets, trash, etc.. I think those are all older reviews and maybe rom previous owners or management?

Since we are self contained in our Sprinter van and really only wanted someplace safe to leave it parked while we went into Yosemite in our Subaru. So we didn't much care about the other amenities.

So in that regard, our ridge top site (#3) was amazing. Bit of a climb up the dirt road but once you're up there the view is terrific in all directions. Feels super exclusive. I'd be tempted to complain about $54 for parking on a piece of dirt, but we enjoyed it so much and had the peace of mind to leave the van there (with bikes on the back) that it was totally worth it!

Oh, and Neils and the other guy in the office were super nice and communicate well.
