Heart Valley ranch hosts 300+ acres of rolling pasture nestled along the beautiful Jackass Creek. Access to Yosemite via 120 takes 1 hour , Groveland 10 minutes, and Coulterville 5 minutes. You’ll find cows, goats, chickens, llamas and our two beloved livestock dogs on the property. Many pools to cool off in and sweeping sunset views from the highest point on the property. There is lots of nature to enjoy including bird watching, seasonal wildflowers, and other wild animals. We welcome all ❤️🌈 We highly recommend not bringing any animals, including service animals. We have two livestock guardian dogs that free roam the property and they are not friendly with other animals.

I loved staying at Julie property! It was BEAUTIFUL and her sweet dog made me feel so at ease. We loved waking up to the llamas and cows. Walking down to the swimming hole was a dream, truly a special place. There was even a breath taking teeny waterfall :) We will definitely be back for another visit to walk the trail and visit Yosemite again 😍 Thanks, Julie! You rule!!

Beautiful and quiet spot on the way to Yosemite. Friendly hosts. The llamas came by to in the morning to say hello. Fun to walk to the swimming hole and by the goats after dinner.

Beautiful farm ! Lots of animals on property to see and starry nights to enjoy. Swimming hole was really pretty and host could not be more generous and accommodating. Highly recommend if staying in the area for Yosemite.

Serene spot
This place was amazing. It is rustic for camping, but the property is awesome. Lots of space, beautiful oak trees, and the swimming hole is awesome. The animals on the farm are fun to see and the goats bleating is so funny. Julie is so accommodating, welcoming, and a great host. The property is tucked away and private, and such a nice getaway. Stay here and you won’t be disappointed! And the get fresh eggs 😁

Julie‘s land is absolutely beautiful. There are a lot of friendly animals and a georgeous and calm landscape. The communication with Julie was super nice, easy and fast. When you stay you need to go for a hike on the Old Barn Trail and you need to check out the swimming hole - it‘s amazing! A perfect place to escape the noisy world. We would love to come back!

It’s a beautiful property in spring when everything is still green. The creek and swimming hole is nice. There were new calves and lots of baby goats. Watch for poison oak as normal in this area. We recommend 4 wheel drive if you’re towing a trailer, the driveway and the entrance to the campsite is quite steep. The fenced campsites has 12 foot wide gates so you need to be an expert driver to back in as the hilly terrain and narrow road add to the challenge. It’s a large space and other than the hosts checking on you or maintaining the area it is very private. Julie and Marta communicate well and quickly. There isn’t service once you get to camp though. I recommend it for car camping and small RV’s , our toy hauler was a bit too wide and long at 27 feet.
