Yosemite’s world-famous scenic byways and miles of spectacular trails are incredible to experience, but the fun doesn’t end there! Back at the Lodge you’ll find all sorts of diversions for discovery, entertainment and relaxation.

You can chill out in our awesome pool area, or join in any number of activities that our Recreation team hosts daily,  including nature crafts, wilderness talks, games, live music, and more.  Check out the January Activities Calendar!

Whatever happens, make sure you leave a bit of time for our nightly tradition of s’mores by the outdoor fire!

Throughout the year we’ll be rolling out even more fun and games.  Our gold panning stream is being developed and will transport us back to California’s 49’er Gold Rush era.  Kids zip lines and other play areas are also on the horizon.  We’ll update you here and on social media as we introduce each wonderful addition throughout the property.


Choose from a dozen therapeutic treatments offered in our Massage Suites just a few steps from your room, or breathe in the rare beauty of Yosemite through one of our Yoga programs.
