I have a very long, level and wide driveway that can accommodate up to a 30 foot RV Max, if traveling as a Group, I welcome a smaller RV to park out front. No slides can be used there. Boondockers are welcome to use back yard which has a covered gazebo, seating, fire pit, horse shoe pit, fruit trees and Almond Trees, grapes and plenty of Meyer lemons. Pick fresh Lemons year round on the 2-50 year old trees, fresh grapes when in season from the nearly 50 year old vines. Shake the Almond trees for off the Tree Almonds. I am in the middle of town, in an established, but peaceful neighborhood. Suggested Local Attractions:Less then 2 hours from the beautiful Yosemite via route CA120 East Less then 2 hours from San Francisco via CA 580 West Less then 30 minutes from the famous Lodi, Ca. wine region. 2.5 hours from South Lake Tahoe or Reno Wolf Resorts opens in 2020- Park your RV here and stay a few nights there. Rivers, Delta, and Many Lakes are just a hop skip and jump away "You Pick" farms all around, and plenty of Fresh Produce in every direction

Our experience with host Debbie was all around super! She’s very fun! We had a great time chatting with her and she even gave us a map and other very helpful info on Yosemite where we were headed the next day. Nice, quiet and safe neighborhood, our RV fit perfectly next to her home! We even got a tour of her beautiful backyard where she has fruit trees growing that we had only ever seen in stores. So fun! My hubby also loved talking with her neighbor about his various cars. 😀 We’d definitely come back here!

We are a bit late with our review but we can't say enough good about our stay. Though we didn't get to spend much time with our host, she was over-the-top helpful to make sure we were settled in and is such a delightful person. You can definitely tell she is a camper herself! Location, amenities and easy access to conveniences was exactly what we needed. We would stay here again and again! :)

Wonderful host that was very accommodating. Thank you very much for the much needed rest here. Beautiful falls full of spring melt in Yosemite was icing on the cake.
