There are also many hikes to old logging rail grades with ancient trestles and ties Some of the best fishing in the Sierras is 200 feet from the Cabin in Big Creek.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

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, CA, USA:
As stated above, I love Fish Camp and it's surroundings. It is a marvelous place to relax and get centered from all the hustle and bustle of the civilized world. Because man made a decision to end Yosemite Park a mile and a half north of here, nature did not. In the near surrounding there are domes, giant sequoias, creeks, water falls etc. that rival any 'inside' the park.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The first time I entered Bear Cub Den-Pappa Bear, I fell in love with it. The beautiful wood work, fireplace made mostly of local rock, and near location to Yosemite stole my heart. Being only two houses from Big Creek with it's beautiful sounding water and great trout is a definite plus. The people of Fish Camp are also very friendly and helpful. Something you may not be used to in other locations.
