One hour's drive from Yosemite's West Gate, this is a beautiful isolated mountain retreat for most types of camping. Fair warning: this is true wilderness, which is only accessible by 4x4 vehicles, and there is very limited cell service. Please coordinate with us in advance for information and to assist you with your arrival. There are two routes up the mountain 1. Northern route, from Highway 120: Passable by true 4x4 vehicles only! Ensure your navigation device takes you to the address via Ponderosa. 2. Southern route: Passable with most vehicles but if you're pulling a camper, you must have a 4x4 vehicle.

    This beautiful piece of land is incredible! We loved the sheer solitude with unspoiled full views of the sky and perfectly still nights and mornings. So that you know, you really DO need 4WD to get up the hill - even in non-wet and non-snowy conditions. We pulled a 27' travel trailer with a 4WD Power Stroke F-250. There are several miles of dirt road getting to the site that can be dusty in the summer. Availability of full hook ups was a wonderful bonus! We had intermittent 1 bar service with AT&T cell. Plenty of open sky for Starlink satellite internet. Our host Randall was wonderful - gave us great tips on how to navigate to the site before arrival, came down to meet us at the main road when we arrived, helped us get parked, and was attentive without being intrusive throughout our visit. Heck, he even offered us a beer on arrival (your experience may vary - we may have just looked particularly thirsty LOL!). Wonderful experience - highly recommended!
