Beautiful campsite & loved that there was a bathroom available with hot water (towels, heater and even a blow dryer!). Host made my arrival and departure very easy and smooth.

Beautiful creek getaway!
I very much enjoyed staying at Ryan’s land. They were very informative and communicative. It had all the amenities a tent camper might need. The dog and host on the property were such a nice, kind bonus. The sound of the creek was so soothing to fall asleep to. It was a bit cold because it’s November but if you’re tent camping just be mindful of that. It was just a tad loud with all the dogs at night but manageable. It was an hour and a half to Yosemite Valley and only 40 minutes from Mariposa Grove. Would recommend staying here!

On the way to Yosemite
Really comfortable for us to tent camp for a night on our way to Yosemite! A large grassy area to pitch the tent and it was close to water, shaded picnic table and seating and grill area. Super easy to find and get to via Google maps and we pulled up no problem in our Honda civic. We came in late and host was gave us instructions just in case and was very communicative. We were welcomed by a couple little cats outside the nice little bathroom / bath house (it has a shower and sink and toilet in great condition). Bathroom is beyond the airstream and little cabin but visible from the campsite. Not a private or remote campsite as we were in view of a couple Airbnb cabins / airstreams, but far enough away that we weren't bothered by it at all. Worked great as a quick stopover on our way to Yosemite!

Camping + Wild Swimming!
Ryan's campsite is like a childhood dream come true! I camped here with my boyfriend and my friend for two nights, and we absolutely loved it. There is plenty of space to park and set up tents, but we were most surprised by the beauty of the river that runs through the property! There is a large swimming hole surrounded by greenery, along with some other spots along the creek to take a refreshing dip. The ranch is partially forested and partially open, so you can see the stars clearly at night! The structure above the picnic tables has fans and lights in it, and there is a campfire spot with seating surrounding it (open flame only allowed in the cooler months). The hibachi grill also makes the area a great cooking space! We were also pleasantly surprised by the outdoor shower and the bath house (with another shower inside and a flushing toilet). In addition, there are power outlets, WiFi, a water spigot, cornhole, a trampoline, and spikeball. The amenities on the ranch really made our camping experience feel like glamping! The cherry on top was the camp host's dog, Oakley, and her two kittens, who all liked to keep us company while we explored the ranch. I wish we had gotten to spend more time there, and we would definitely stay again!

Amazing amenities for tent camping
Ryan's place was so great! The amenities were terrific (the cleanest bathroom I've ever seen). The space was great, there was a grill to use, and a really nice picnic/campfire area
