Welcome to Red Tail Ranch (newly listed on Hipcamp), a stunning 90 acre property in the Sierra Nevada foothills, just 25 minutes from the Yosemite entrance gate. Among the oak woodlands, meadows and coniferous forest, there are numerous trails to explore the property and direct riding access to a developed mountain biking area nearby. Great birding, botanizing and wildlife watching opportunities abound. Use Red Tail Ranch as an ideal launching off point for Yosemite or stay on the property and enjoy all that it has to offer.
We have RV sites with hookups, a four site drive-in campground and two walk-in campsites- all with clean, flush toilet bathrooms, hot outdoor showers, indoor camp kitchen and gathering space. Whether your pitching a tent, parking a campervan or rv, there are opportunities for everyone.
We are 10 minutes from the small town of Groveland with a market and restaurants and just down the road from the put in for rafting on the Tuolumne river.
Our pricing is a little higher than other places nearby and this is due to the property's great locations, incredible beauty, and all of the amenities added for a great experience.

Headwaters RV #2
The property is exactly as described. Red Tail Ranch is a great place to stay with lots of extra amenities. We appreciated the deck at RV Site #2. Be mindful that there are abundant stickers along the trails so dress appropriately and be prepared to deal with them on your dog.

Great HipCamp site and host
We (two couples) reserved the two RV spots for the weekend. From booking to departure, it was easy with plenty of communication between the host and ourselves. The spots were fantastic, the barn/lounge was a great option for hanging and having meals, and the deck provided for one of the RV spots was super appreciated. We all agreed one of our very finest HipCamp experiences. Tons of hiking close by, great little town to pop in and check out, and loads of wonderful silence and tranquility. Our dogs were allowed onsite, and also had a wonderful time hiking the local trails. Spaces from other campers/camp sites were plentiful, and we really appreciated that planning on the host’s part. Hope to be back next fall!

Great HipCamp site and Host
Great spot, close to tons of hiking trails. A quick 10 min into Groveland for knocking around and getting a drink at the legendary Iron Door Saloon. We had a GREAT time - thank you!

Lupine Walk-in camp
Perfect quiet place to spend a couple of evenings while traveling back and forth from Yosemite. Beautiful night sky and wonderful bird song in the morning. Heard some owls and a few other night birds in the night as well.
