Site #2 - Creekside. It was a dry winter so there was almost no water running down the "creek." This is probably the most private since no one else has to pass by to get to the bathroom or the parking lot/entrance.

Diamond Gulch
13 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents824 acres · Groveland, CAExplore the mines and hang out on our Groveland, California ranch! We have 824 acres on a beautiful cattle ranch with two small ponds. On our property you'll find frogs, turtles, lots of oak trees, pine trees and stunning views of Yosemite. We're 30 miles from the main gate of Yosemite National Park and there’s a golf course less than a mile away. We're not far from town either -- in just a few minutes you can drive to our local grocery store and pizza parlor. When you come to the ranch it feels like you are hundreds of miles away from civilization and it's real quiet. This is a great place for someone who wants to escape city life and enjoy the tranquility of nature. Much of the ranch is open wilderness for you to explore, and it's not uncommon to see deer, frogs, turtles, quail, turkeys, or the other countless species of birds. Diamond Gulch Camp is the perfect place to relax if you’re a photographer, artist, family or a group of friends looking for a place to camp near Yosemite. A small portion of the property was used as a gold mine years ago, and you may find remnants of old home sites if you go exploring. We're not far from Wards Ferry Road, Groveland, Lake Don Pedro and other interesting places.

WHAT WE ARE NOT: We are not a 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 cigarette smokers are in your group when you send your booking request. We are not associated with Yosemite National Park and, therefore do not have up to the minute details about what they require or have going on. You can find this information on the National Parks website; nps dot gov. We are not available at all times to answer questions about each site's specifics but have taken a great deal of time putting all of the information into the platform. We ask our campers to read through the details on each of our sites to find what will best suit your needs. Happy Hipcamping!!! Roni Lynn

Cosumnes River Somerset Camp
5 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents23 acres · CAThis land was home to the Miwok, then European and Chinese miners, then a cattle rancher. It was also home to a former nun who quit the dominican order to purchase this land for inner city kids to have a chance to ride, swim, hike and fish. There is NOTHING like being in the wilderness of this area for a good re-centering of the soul! We feel certain you will not be disappointed with this beautiful river canyon. We back up to several hundred acres of public land along the middle fork. We have one sleeping cabin and two tent site developed at this time (can be rented separately). The cabin offers a rustic/minimalist type vibe - bring your own bedding/pillows to sleep on the comfy futon. A table is provided outside and most people bring their camping chairs. The swimming is awesome and tons of hiking. Many family owned wineries in the area, most of them offering free tasting. Short drive to Tahoe and the Marshall gold discovery site as well as the historic hangtown Placerville. The recent Caldor Fire was VERY close to our property and a back burn was initiated nearby the cabin. It is still as beautiful as ever but please know there are lots of slash piles, ash and soot nearby. Falling trees and burning stump holes are also a risk and it is presumed campers will be cautious when in the forrest. We offer 2 cabins, and have 5 camp sites at this time.

The rural community of Pescadero sits at the midpoint of the California coast. It's just over an hour south of San Francisco. With a population of only around 650, it's usually a sleepy town. Things tend to perk up in the summer when camping and surfing enthusiasts descend for the area's excellent weather and water access. Never seen the famous California redwoods? Head about 10 minutes southeast to reach Butano State Park. You'll find 40 miles of hiking trails that take you through these massive, majestic trees. Spend the night among the redwoods at the 39-site Ben Ries Campground. Travel about 30 minutes north on CA-1 to reach Half Moon Bay State Beach. About four miles of shoreline allow for fishing and make an excellent picnic destination. Looking to stay overnight? Head to the 52-site campground on Francis Beach. Francis does have some RV and trailer camping, but hookups are electric only. Santa Cruz North / Costanoa KOA is about 20 minutes south of Pescadero. Here you'll have access to both tent camping and RV park with full hookups. Free Wi-Fi makes this a good choice for digital nomads working from the road.
