Great place to camp.

This is a great place to camp. The host is very friendly and accommodating. Very generous with produce from the lovely backyard. Quiet neighborhood. Level driveway. Verizon signal is very good. Wonderful spot, not far from Yosemite.

Convenient stop after Yosemite

Convenient, level, and quiet parking spot for the night after visiting Yosemite. The host was very welcoming and provided prompt and thorough information. We appreciate her invitation to relax in her garden and enjoy the fresh from the tree lemons, limes and pomegranate! Thanks!

Great Host!

She is an awesome camp host! Our travels had been tricky and difficult due to the Covid shutdowns. The host was amazing and made us feel like family, which we appreciated. The driveway wasn’t too difficult to back into. It is in a city, with all the background city noises. A little strange for us after being in the middle of nowhere for half a year! This is a wonderful place to stop off while traveling and we would recommend it, in fact we hope to stop by again sometime in the future!

Wonderful host!

Debbie greeted my with a great smile and a basket of fruit. She was very thoughtful offering an extra night due to snow on Donner Pass the day I was scheduled to leave. Thank you for the opportunity to stay at “Gateway to Yosemite”!

Absolutely positive!

I was scheduled to stay here 2 days but because of bad weather, I couldn’t leave for Reno. Debbie extended the offer today stay one more day until the weather over Donner Pass cleared. Her hospitality was great. I was also her first guest for BW! A really great host. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness!
