Red Cloud Park

A quiet, beautiful spot for a picnic in the pines or just to stretch your and/or your pet's legs while journeying up or down the John Muir Highway segment of Hwy 132 from Coulterville to Yosemite National Park. Clean public restrooms, Bar-B-Ques. Just seconds off the highway, surrounded by tall evergreens.

The Red Cloud park retains the original name for the local area which was renamed Greeley Hill in honor of the Greeley’s who took their cousin, Horace's advice and came west, settling in the area.
