Evergreen Lodge

Evergreen Lodge is a newly expanded historic resort with 88 cozy cabins in the woods and 20 custom camping sites.  Guests say Evergreen feels like a big warm hug.  It was established in 1921 to facilitate the building of the O’Shaughnessy Dam in Yosemite’s Hetch Hetchy Valley. Today you can tap into the historic vibe of Evergreen’s colorful past, while still enjoying the comforts of a modern resort.

Evergreen is blessed with a convenient location for enjoying all of Yosemite. The lodge sits one mile from the Park's western border and the entrance to Hetch Hetchy.

Rush Creek Lodge

Rush Creek Lodge & Spa, which opened in 2016, is built on a historic property fondly known as a Gold Rush claim that just didn’t pan out!  Like Evergreen, Rush Creek served as a social hub throughout the Gold Rush era, and is pleased to provide a warm welcome to modern day travelers seeking to bask in Yosemite’s warm glow.

With 143 Lodge Rooms, Suites and Villas situated on 20 hillside acres, and a gorgeous Yosemite-inspired Spa, the Lodge’s mood is laid-back luxury. Located less than a mile from Yosemite’s Hwy 120 West entrance, Rush Creek is a favorite for easiest access to Yosemite.

Firefall Ranch

With its 2024 Grand Opening, Firefall Ranch proudly joins its long-established sister properties. Fine but not fussy, the Ranch is unlike anything else Yosemite has ever seen. While brand new, Firefall has historic Yosemite roots, as the Ranch once served as a stop on the original stagecoach route to the Park in the 1870’s.

Firefall sits on 300 sprawling acres of meadowland and Sierra foothills along Yosemite’s Hwy 120 West corridor.  With 55 standalone Cottages and Villas spread throughout the property, there is plenty of space for guests to enjoy an elegant, private getaway in pristine natural surroundings.
