Stand Up Paddle Board with oar, manual and electric pump, and repair kit – $60

We are excited to now offer stand up paddle boards! We suggest taking them to Cherry Lake, avoiding Yosemite’s summer crowds or Tenaya Lake in the High Country for stellar views. We recommend packing a delicious lunch from our General Store and renting a paddle board and fishing equipment from the Recreation Desk for the ultimate summer day. 


We offer strollers that are great for cruising around lodge grounds or exploring local fire roads. You can also take one for the day for a Yosemite National Park tour of Yosemite Valley or the High Country.

In addition to guided snowshoe hikes, we also offer snowshoe rentals. All winter and spring there is great snowshoeing both around the Park and right out our front door. The High Country usually has snow well into the summer. Modern snowshoes are lightweight and easy to use. We are happy to give you a quick ‘how to’ session and send you on your way with snowshoes and poles in hand for a memorable day’s adventure. We can also help with trip routing to ensure you have a fun day making fresh tracks in the Park.

Rental Prices:

– Adults – $30 per day
– Kids (age 2-12) – $20 per day

What do the Europeans know that we don’t? That trekking poles are a must-have item for hiking to help minimize the impact on your back and knees, to get a full-body workout, and to assist on descents, water crossings, and prodding your partner to wake up from their afternoon nap! Seriously, most guides use poles and once you get used to using them, you’ll be hooked.
