Rent my "Minnie Winnie" 22R! It's perfect for 2-6 people, self contained. Pick up in San Jose near the airport, and explore the giant redwoods, Yosemite Nat Park, or the Sierras and Gold Country. We can help you plan your perfect getaway.

California's High Sierras are a perfect camping spot in the summer time.

Rent my "Minnie Winnie" 22R! It's perfect for 2-6 people with 3 beds, self contained. It has all the amenities - V10 engine, generator, a great furnace, flat screen HDTV with DVD with cable hookup, microwave, outside stereo, hot shower (great for warming up after a winter hike), etc, etc. Recently detailed, ready to go. The Minnie is a great way to make a camping trip more fun (and a lot more comfortable)!

The RV is located in San Jose, right near the San Jose Airport. Load it up, leave your car at my house, and head right up Hwy 140 through Mariposa and the All Weather Entrance to the park. In the spring, summer, and fall, it's glorious to enter the park via Hwy 120, through the tunnels on the north rim of the canyon.

Or head up Hwy 50 or Hwy 80 to Tahoe, Truckee, or Reno, even further to Idaho, Wyoming, or Utah.

Note: This rental does NOT include a campsite in Yosemite.

In the summer, we recommend Crane Flat campgrounds, right in Yosemite Park. There's generally good availability all summer long, and there's great access to the splendor of the High Sierras and Gold Country in the summer.

We will do a one hour orientation with you before you leave, to show you how everything works, and make sure that you're completely comfortable with the RV.

The Crane Flats campground in Yosemite is open and has availability for much of the summer. You can make that your base to explore the California Gold Country, High Sierras, or the beauty of Yosemite National Park.

Overview:
Crane Flat Campground is located in breathtaking Yosemite National Park in Central California's rugged Sierra Nevada Mountain Range.The site is conveniently located 17 miles from Yosemite Valley at an elevation of 6,200 feet.

Within Yosemite, visitors can gaze upon waterfalls, sheer granite cliffs, deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, vast wilderness areas and so much more.

Natural Features:
The area is forested with stands of Sugar pine, Red fir and Lodgepole pine, offering a pleasant combination of sun and shade. Vanilla-scented Jeffrey pine and picturesque western Juniper dot the landscape. Vibrant summer wildflowers fill the open meadows nearby.

Recreation:
Yosemite's trails, cliffs, roads and rivers provide endless recreational activities for any kind of visitor. Hiking, biking, rock climbing, fishing, horseback riding, rafting, auto touring, and photography are all very popular activities within the park.

Crane Flat is located between the Tuolumne and Merced Groves of Giant Sequoias, both of which require a 2.5 to 3-mile roundtrip hike to view.

The White Wolf area on Tioga Road also offers many hiking opportunities.

Facilities:
Crane Flat Campground offers family sites that can accommodate both tents and RVs. Roads and parking spurs are paved, and flush toilets and drinking water are provided. Each campsite contains a picnic table, fire ring and a food storage locker. A gas station and small general store are nearby.

Nearby Attractions:
Just 30 minutes away is Yosemite Valley, an awe-inspiring landscape containing many of the famous features for which Yosemite National Park is known. Hiking trails and bike paths are abundant in the valley. Rafting the Merced River is a fun way to cool down on a summer day when water levels are sufficient. Yosemite Valley also offers numerous guided bus tours, educational programs, museums, ranger-led activities, and an art center with workshops.

The Tioga Road offers a 39-mile scenic drive past forests, meadows, lakes and granite domes. Tuolumne Meadows embodies the high-country of the Sierra Nevada, with its broad sub-alpine meadows and granite peaks.

Beautiful Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, just 23 miles from Crane Flat, is home to spectacular scenery and numerous wilderness trailheads.

Glacier Point has sweeping views of Yosemite Valley, Little Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, Vernal and Nevada Falls and Clouds Rest, among other notable landmarks. Wawona and the Pioneer Yosemite History Center is like stepping back in time.

Near Wawona, the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias has a guided bus tour (tickets must be purchased) and a network of free hiking trails that lead to stately trees with names like Grizzly Giant, Faithful Couple, and California Tunnel Tree.

Once parked in the valley, there is a free bus that takes you to all of the trailheads and amenities.

House Rules

Must have driver's license and provide insurance. You can also buy insurance from the company that I use. It's pretty easy.

100 miles are included per day. If you rent for 4 days, you get 400 miles for free. Additional miles are just $.35 per mile.

The 1-hour walkthrough is required by my insurance. Once you go through it once, your subsequent rentals are super easy - you just show up and drive off.
