PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS PROPERTY. There is a sneaky question I ask you to give me the answer to when you request to book.   

This listing is a roomy, canvas tent that comfortably sleeps 4 and is outfitted nicely to make setting up camp easy.  It has a private area under market lights with a picnic table, two overstuffed bean bag chairs, dry storage on the tent platform for your snacks and goodies, available shower, indoor toilets, and outdoor, communal kitchen. We ask that guests do not eat in the tent and remove their shoes to help keep it nice and clean for others.

Bring your own sleeping bags/linens. We offer a protective case and clean, flat sheet to be used on top of the queen mattress, but count on guests using their own bedding. The small, twin-sized pads are intended to be used with sleeping bags.

COVID-19 - While we offer soap, hot water, and disinfectant spray we trust that our campers are taking precautions to stay safe and will practice social distancing while staying with us. We do not have anything marked, as we trust that we all are aware of how far 6 feet apart is. We are not able to clean our bathroom after each guest and ask each camper to clean up before and after themselves to ensure their own safety.  


We are a Hipcamp that caters to SELF-SUFFICIENT campers who have experience and realize that this is a few steps above what camping REALLY means. If you need a camp host available at all times, this is not the Hipcamp for you, as ours lives on-site and keeps things clean and functioning, but is not always there. We are a Hipcamp that offers our guests a clean, hot shower and two indoor toilets. Pretty rad, right?! We are people who are utilizing a very old, funky mobile home to make some money and pay off our land while living in the shabby chic cottage on site. We are a peaceful place in historic downtown Groveland to enjoy a glamping experience in one of our beautiful, canvas tents, stay in our fully equipped 18 foot RV, pitch your own tent, or park your RV under the same pines and oaks that fill Yosemite National Park. We are a new venture on a property that has been mistreated for years and we are loving it back to health on a very limited budget. We are a place that has a super cool, vintage, outdoor kitchen with hot water & cold water, a 1950 Wedgewood gas range with four burners, a bar with 4 stools and an umbrella, and a small propane bbq.  


We are a 3-5 minute walk from the public transit system into Yosemite. Check out YARTS dot com online for schedules. WE ARE AN AWESOME PLACE TO BE!!!


A snooty, high-end, generously funded campground with brand new furniture, a pristine campfire ring, manicured sites, and marble showers. (Although, we are people who love to visit those places!)

Please let me know you've read this far by telling me how many smokers are in your group when you send your booking request.

Ferretti Farm's Site 3 (HERMAN) is tucked in the pine trees on the corner of the property with a private picnic area just beyond the porch. You'll find outdoor string lights in the trees for a magical evening.  Inside the tent enjoy a battery-operated lantern, cozy bean bags, and more! 


This beautiful, powered, canvas tent includes everything a group of four needs:

- 3 Beds (1 Queen, 2 Twins)

- 2 large and 4 small throw pillows

-4 yoga blankets and 3 queen-sized, flat sheets

-2 large bean bag chairs 

-1 battery operated lantern

-1 Jenga game

-2 nightstands

-1 mini dresser

-1 camp stove

-1 tea kettle

- Wifi

Bring linens from home and pickup food on the way. You can bring along a small propane cylinder and use the outdoor camp stove that is in the tent. (DO NOT USE INSIDE THE TENT) Also, the outdoor kitchen with gas range and bbq included for you! 

Main Street Groveland is just a quick walk down the back streets of the Gold Rush Town. Enjoy dinner and drinks at The Iron Door Saloon, self proclaimed as the oldest continuously operating saloon this side of the Mississippi.  Enjoy the high-end Bourbon Bar and small bites at the Groveland Hotel's Provisions. Take a little drive down Highway 120 Around the Horn Brewery. 

Sleep soundly in the peace and quiet of the park-like setting before or after your adventure in breathtaking Yosemite.

The tent setup at this Hipcamp is quite nice. They have everything you need for cooking, and I could spend all day in that tent! Reasonably close to Yosemite, without all the hassle of trying to get a campsite in the valley.

You're also a 2-minute walk into town which was super helpful for getting groceries or grabbing food when we were too tired to cook :D

The bathroom is definitely a work in progress, as the tents definitely deliver the glamping experience but the rest of the site still has work to be done!

If it's cold the weekend you plan on coming, definitely bring plenty of blankets!

Wow- where to begin?

Upon arriving, we were so excited to see that our tent was nestled in a back corner of the site, which made it feel private but still safe. The tent itself was fitted with comfortable beds and adorable touches that made it extra special- dresser drawers and patterned blankets. It also camp with a lamp which came in handy!

With this level of privacy, we still had easy access to two bathrooms/ one shower just a few meters away. The outdoor kitchen also came to good use and offered a quick way to refill water bottles. This meant that our level of preparation was so much lower than full on camping, but we still got a super authentic experience!

Just steps down the hill is the quaint city of Groveland. We ended up eating dinners in town as there were 3-4 solid options, along with 2 fun bars to check out. This was a very enjoyable break from shelter in place!!! And we were only 30 minutes from the Big Oak Flat Yosemite entrance, to boot! This meant we were able to hop up in the mornings and get to hiking with our day pass.

Overall, I'd highly recommend this site to all of my friends. Not only did it have everything you could need, but the price was right, and Roni was a blast to chat with in passing, as she made a point to be there as a resource.

Rave reviews!

This was my second time staying here, just one month later. Even in just one month Roni has done so much to improve the place! Our stay was just as amazing as last time and Roni went out of her way to make sure we could come back. Can’t wait for the next trip back!

Thank you so much for the sweet review, Hadley! Your kinds words really mean a lot. You are a real treasure of a young woman and your friends are delightful, as well. I would be happy to host all of you any time at either of our properties. Maybe we'll see you at Rudy Ranch one day soon! https://www.hipcamp.com/discover/california/santa-cruz-s-rudy-ranch I hope to see you again soon! Stay safe and sweet, RL

We had a lovely weekend at Yosemite's Ferretti Farm. Roni was helpful in allowing us to book all campsites out to help our full group be accomidated with safe social distancing. The outdoor kitchen and the canvas tents are awesome!

Such a lovely quiet property. We were here on a Sunday - Tuesday, so might be quieter than normal, but loved having our own little yurt to come home to after exploring Yosemite.

Shared hot shower and restroom were clean and did just the trick when we needed to freshen up, and the 3 HERMAN spot was situated in the back, just steps away from it. The tent is turned to the back for privacy, which I appreciated. And the picnic table was a great place for us to bring our pizza for a little private outdoor dining.
