2021 Travelers' Choice Tripadvisor

There’s a pool house and full-service pool bar so you can soak up the surrounding mountain and sunset views in complete comfort. Stylish lounge chairs, ample tables, and convenient umbrellas set the scene to relax, play games or enjoy drinks. Our walk-up pool bar serves an assortment of tasty libations throughout the day, including beer, wine, spirits, and refreshing blended drinks.


Our Pool Bar is open daily from May to October, weather permitting from 12 pm – 9 pm.

The pool and hot tubs are open year-round, weather permitting. Please be aware that while the pool never closes, quiet hours begin at 10 pm.

The fully fenced swimming pool area is for lodge guests only and is not open to the general public. 


Both the pool and hot tubs are solar heated and minimize chemical use through salt water purification.


Summer in the Sierra Nevada is not complete without a friendly barbecue, and it’s even more fun barbecuing at Rush Creek Pool Bar. Our poolside barbecue includes fresh flairs of timeless classics like Kalua BBQ Pork, Marinated Flank Steak, Guajillo Cauliflower, and Hulu Hulu Chicken. Our Poolside Barbeque is offered May through September including our Texas BBQ, Taco Truck, and All American BBQ menus that rotate nightly so you always have something new to try throughout your stay. Adding to the fun, our custom-crafted Rush Creek Lodge libations are available during the barbecue. Please call our front desk for inquiries about our Summer Barbecue.
