Perfectly lovely place, close to town and near beautiful natural wonders.

Amazing host!

Halwiseguy goes above and beyond what is required to be a Boondockers host. I came as a stranger and left feeling like family.

Great host!

Even though we didn’t get to spend a lot of time with Halwiseguy he was a gracious host who met us upon arrival and helped us back in to the spot and offered electric and water. Easy set up as the land was level. He was very helpful with suggestions on what to see in the area! Nice friendly host. We went to Bass lake and had a great time! Definitely would come back!

Halwiseguy was Great

We were a little apprehensive about getting in to Halwiseguy's parking spot because of the size of our motor home 39 ft. We had disconnected our tow vehicle. But, with Halwiseguy's help we were able to get in. The spot is fairly level. I did have to use my leveling jacks. We used his 50 amp connection and the water and gave him the requested $10 a day. They are located in the country a short drive from town, Oakhurst, CA. We saw wild turkeys and quail several days. It is really quite and peaceful there. I needed to replace a marker light on one light and the lens on the other for the marker lights on the back of the motor home. Halwiseguy got a tall step later and took them apart and told me what I needed to fix them. Got them at Auto Zone. I also had a part missing from my Air Force One air brake system for my tow vehicle. Halwiseguy made a part for me. He has a complete shop. I never got to formally meet his wife, but my wife did and said Hal's wife is really sweet. Halwiseguy is a really nice guy and will go out of his way to help you in any way you can. If we are ever this way again we will definitely try to get to stay with Halwiseguy. If you get the chance you should stay there also.

Great parking area, super nice host!

Halwiseguy is a fantastic host. He responded to my texts, helped me find his place and set up, provided electricity and water, and was helpful and friendly. The spot is grassy and flat. Thank you!


March 2020

Wonderful host & great stay

We had some wet and snowy weather during our visit - host was super kind and helpful. We couldnt make it into his preferred location due to the weather, but we were able to hook up in another location and it was perfect.

We are very grateful for the access to utilities while we stayed!


March 2020

At the base of Yosemite.

When we pulled in they met us out at the gate and helped direct the rig into the space. Everything was perfect! There was even a table and chairs with umbrella next to a small gazebo. Even though we were too busy to stay around and use it it is the perfect set up for people visiting. Such a nice couple and we wish them well with their upcoming travels. We definitely recommend the spot!


February 2020

June 2019

Wonderful stay

Hosts were the kindest people helpful and great with suggestions what to see in their area. Their setup for Boondocker is inviting : water and electricity and a table with umbrella and twinkling lights. Their location is very convenient to national park-We went to Yosemite: glacier point- one day and valley the other. Thank you 😊


June 2019

Very Kind

Very nice place to stay to visit Yosemite! Host was very kind and helpful to make our stay comfortable. Nice flat parking spot.

Nice place

Thanks for hosting us. Nice place to stay, closed enough to Yosemite. Our host gave us some good advice about Yosemite, where to go and what to do. Closed to different stores and grocery stores.


June 2019

Wonderful hospitality

Half and Mary were great. Very accommodating. Steep drive but doable for 30 foot class A motorhome and a road jeep.


June 2019

Fantastic Hosts

We can not say enough good things about this couple! They were both so hospitable, friendly, and kind! We felt so comfortable and relaxed on our stay. They were so friendly to talk to and gave us great local tips on the area. We appreciate their kindness and help so very much and would highly recommend these hosts!!


June 2019

Awesome stay, friendly family

Friendly people! Their grand daughter even took my kids to the pond to look at tad poles, we would definitely stay again. Comfortable graded site. Steep hill coming in and out but we did just fine with a 32 ft. Class C. We stayed for just one night on our way to Yosemite.Thank you for your hospitality!


June 2019

Simple and perfect

Spent only a night on our way to Yosemite and it was very good. Would stay there again without hesitation.


May 2019

Kind and Welcoming

This is my first boondocking experience and I could not have chosen and better place. Halwiseguy are kind and welcoming. Their place is quiet and peaceful, located very close to Yosemite NP. I am so very grateful for their hospitality. Thank you!


May 2019

So generous!

I was looking for a place to stay near Yosemite before I went I to the park for the weekend. I got that, but so much more! Hal noticed something wrong with one of my wheels and had me pull around to his garage. He went of his way to remove the wheel, make multiple trips with me to Napa Auto Parts, and replace my bearings before they went completely bad and took out my axel. The kindness of strangers!! Wow!


April 2019

Awesome stay - convenient to Yosemite

Thanks Hal and Mary! We really appreciated you sharing your quiet and peaceful property with us during our visit. Loved seeing the deer and wild turkeys, and enjoyed walking the park-like area behind your house. I hope you guys enjoy your Alaska trip!


November 2018

Excellent Stay!

Thank you so much Hal, you were a wonderful host and have a beautiful property. We were able to visit the Maraposa Grove as well as Yosemite Valley. Additionally, Hal has frequent deer on the property which was a delight to see most mornings! Thanks again!


November 2018


Wonderful, warm and fascinating couple. They also know a couple of great eateries, not to mention that Hal makes a fantastic burgers! Lol. Hosts that everyone should be fortunate to have. Hope to see both of them again in the future....

Great Hosts

We arrived and how was waiting to help us park our bus. Both of our Hosts were extremely friendly and upon leaving they helped us get our bus out of their parking area.


October 2018

Great place!

Great place and very gracious hosts! We were just passing through and needed a spot for the night. Even with only a few hours notice Hal responded and was able to accommodate us. Greeted us and helped us hook up to water and electric... nice bonus as we had been dry camping for several nights.
Thanks so much to Hal and Mary and their cute critters Morris and Chloë!

Great place near Yosemite - Best Hosts

We could not have been happier than to stay here for a couple of days to explore Yosemite. Hal and Mary are the nicest people and truly were excellent hosts. From the beginning, Hal helped us get our fifthwheel in place and set up. They have a wonderful spot and we used their water and 20 amp connection along with our solar setup. We had fun exchanging travel stories and just having good conversation. Peaceful and quiet location with lots of birds and deer. We will make a point to visit again. Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality.

Great place to stay near Yosemite!

Great place to stay near Yosemite! Great parking spot with electric and water. They also have wildlife, a nice place to walk and a pool that they let us use. Both very giving and friendly.


September 2018

Great spot. Very welcoming

Great spot with level site. Hal help back us in and get hooked up.

Thanks again and sorry we didnt get to say goodbye.


August 2018

Beautiful place close to Yosemite

We spent 2 nights at Hal's and his wife's place and it was really great. Their property is near the forest, the smell of wood was fantastic and gave a feeling of peace. It's a one hour drive to Yosemite Park. The water and electric connection was available. We loved the cats - one of them liked us and stayed in front of our trailer all night :)
Thank you for hosting us and sorry for blocking your truck, you are wonderful and caring people.
Wishing you the best,
Zimniak Family

Wonderful place, wonderful people!!

Hal and Mary, their property, cats and cute dog, Chloe are not to be missed. Hal was so helpful checking my van for me (I have refrigerator problems, to name just one). The parking space is flat and under some trees. I was given water and electric connection. There are so many birds and wildlife around. I enjoyed my stay very much and hope to visit them again when the weather cools, if they'll have me again. Thank you Hal and Mary very much!


April 2018

very flexible and accommodating

Excellent reception even though we arrived a day earlier than discussed! (My fault entirely).
Hal and Mary were excellent hosts as well as tour guides for the area surrounding Oakhurst.
Beautiful and tranquil setting with quite a bit of wildlife.
Be sure to check with them when you need a place to boondockers that is a great base for the hour and a half drive to Yosemite !


March 2018

Beautiful Spot in Oakhurst!

Hal and his wife were so kind and welcoming. They have two dogs and seven friendly cats! We just loved the picturesque setting and starry skies.

Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality and for sharing your beautiful space!

Awesome hosts

We had the pleasure of staying two nights with these awesome hosts. They live in a nice area and were very welcoming. We hope to be able to return the favour one day. Wishing you both safe travels and many wonderful experiences. We enjoyed spending time with you both and will think of you every time we encounter those dreaded switchbacks!
