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 April Recreation Calendar!

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

We’ve got giant checkers, horseshoes, other games outdoors, and our kids’ zip lines opened in February 2018. (Also tons of fun for the young at heart!)  Throughout the year we’ll continue rolling out even more fun and games, including additions to our giant outdoor play area.  We’ll update you here and on social media as we introduce each wonderful addition throughout the property.
