Ideal for destination events, retreats, and weddings, Rush Creek Lodge features customizable, full-service meeting and event space for groups up to 250. Guests may select open-air meeting options or indoor settings that can scale from casual to sophisticated throughout the seasons.
The Rush Creek on-site catering program offers plated, buffet and family style meals for groups of 25 – 250. Menu options are varied and offer healthy, hearty, delicious California-style mountain lodge cuisine. Our creative approach to culinary preparation is inspired by our iconic surroundings and grounded in ingredients that are fresh, thoughtful, locally produced and environmentally sound. Menus are tailored to the needs and desires of the group.
In addition to the outstanding cuisine, Rush Creek offers customizable recreation and activity packages for groups, including guided trips and team building. Rush Creek’s varied onsite activities and guest areas promote fun-filled, relaxing, informal interactions and bonding throughout a group’s time with us – fostering the important connections desired in a group getaway.
You’ll be amazed at what you can achieve with the help of our on-site planning experts, catering crew, and Recreation team.

With help from our on-site planner and team of professionals you’ll be able to celebrate your life in style, and your guests will thank you for years to come.
Meetings, Retreats & Events
Sometimes to think outside of the box you have to get outside of the city! Just a few hours from the San Francisco Bay Area you can unplug, reconnect, and re-energize groups ranging from 25 to 250 people. Our variety of indoor and outdoor options work wonders for everything from professional meetings to large social gatherings.
Mission Partner Program
Like our sister property, the Evergreen Lodge, Rush Creek is a social enterprise that operates a first class resort while running a behind-the-scenes employment program serving urban youth. We’re extending our impact by providing mission-based organizations access to our resort at highly reduced rates.
Mountain Meetings Incentive Offer
Fresh mountain air and memorable natural surroundings (like world-famous Yosemite National Park!) lead to fresh thinking, and, as a result, exciting new ideas. For a limited time, we have some terrific incentives for you to book a memorable and meaningful meeting mid-week November through March.
