CLOSE TO YOSEMITE! Explore the mines and hang out on our Groveland, California ranch! We are 35 minutes to the main gate of Yosemite National Park. A great place to stay just outside of the park. We have 824 acres on a beautiful cattle ranch with two small ponds. On our property, you'll find frogs, turtles, oak trees, pine trees and stunning views of Yosemite. We have several campsites to choose from including RV camping, tent camping, and a glamping tent. Pets are welcome. Campfires are permitted as long as there is no fire ban. Potable water and toilet are available onsite. There's a golf course less than a mile away. We are also very close to town. In just a few minutes, you can drive to our local grocery store and pizza parlour. We are a 10-minute drive to Pine Mountain Lake. Beautiful Pine Mountain Lake offers golfing, dining, horseback riding, water sports and an airport. When you come to the ranch it feels like you are hundreds of miles away from civilization, but still close to everything you need. It is incredibly peaceful! This is a great place for someone who wants to escape city life and enjoy the tranquillity 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 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.

John’s land was not too far from Yosemite in a cozy little town. Directions were clear, other campers were cordial, and having a shower was nice. Host was friendly and answered any questions. Firewood was supplied!!! Be prepared for bees when cooking during late June.

Camping from England!
5 stars! The best location to get into Yosemite. 35 min drive to the entrance. John was fantastic. Checked in with us each night and stayed for a few beers and a chat. Great guy. Will be coming back!

Site 3 - Walt’s Mining Camp 1893
We loved this campsite! It was on a beautiful property, that provided bathrooms and firewood. We stayed at the camping spots, but the glamping sites also looked lovely, we’d love to come back and try those out too!

Beautiful views, easy to find following the arrival directions. The showers were great and our site had firewood and lots of shade.

Diamond Gulch Camp
Great stay!
This is a well managed and friendly campsite, well situated close enough to town and to the Yosemite entrance. The campsite is at the top of a hill overlooking the rolling hills. Campsites vary from up top and more exposed to further down and in the trees. There are 3 frequently serviced porta potties for toilets, and 3 outdoor showers with ingenious hot water systems. Each campsite has a picnic table and a fire ring, and some have convenient spigots for water. The owner, John, comes visiting each evening to make sure everything is going well. We really enjoyed the chill vibe and beautiful sunrises, sunsets, and starry nights ! It was hot when we were there, so I opted to sleep in a tent outside the RV to enjoy the colder nights.
