                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1990

                              About the owner: The first time I visited Yosemite was 1954 with my mother. I fell in love with the park . I visited many times in the next 47 years and every time I went thru Fish Camp, with it's beautiful pond, trees and mountains, I said to myself 'Some day I want to buy a home here.' In 1991 I did just that. I continued to live in Southern Ca. and came to Fish Camp as often as possible. In the mean time I purchased two other home in Fish Camp and in 2010 I retired from my life as a licensed clinical social worker and came to Fish Camp for most of the year. In those many years I hike, camped, and studied the flora, fauna, geology, inn keepers, native americans and trails of Yosemite. I am very knowledgeable of the Park and am available for questions at any time.

                              Why the Owner Chose Fish Camp:
                              As a young man, I lived in a small town. Fish Camp has a total population of year round residents of less than 100. I love the peace and quiet available here. Where else can you have such beauty and serenity? Because man says the Park stops 1 1/2 miles from here, Nature did not. Fish Camp has all the beauty and less crowds than Yosemite National Park. I bought this cabin because it was the only one available. It had a foundation of river rock with 4X4s resting on them. The house was at a huge tilt, carpenter ants eat away most of the structural wood and the deck had to have your weight distributed or your foot would go thru it. We bought the house 'as is'. Jacked it up and put in new foundation, took off the outer walls and insulated them, put in double pain windows, and then replaced all the exterior wheathered cedar. The cabin retained it's original rustic look and charm, yet was like new under the exterior. We saved a historic part of Fish Camp.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                              I love the way the cabin is surrounded by 200+ft. Silver Tips, Cedar, and Sugar Pines. I could spend a whole day just sitting on the deck looking out at the beauty. I often leave the cabin and walk 2 1/2 miles up the road, the cabin is on, and stand next to the Grizzley Giant, the largest tree in Yosmite National Park. I can walk all but a city block and see no one. What a delight it is to stay in a cabin lined on the inside with knotty pine and the outside with weathered cedar.
