Tuolumne Meadows Lodge

Tuolumne Meadows Lodge

Your Basecamp for Yosemite Adventure

Operating Dates

  • June 5 - September 20, 2020

The Tuolumne Meadows Lodge is located 60 miles from Yosemite Valley at over 8,700 feet above sea level. Here, you’ll find 69 canvas-tent cabins that are available from mid-June to mid-September, conditions permitting. Situated next to the Tuolumne River and near Tuolumne Meadows, it’s the perfect place to settle in after hiking in Yosemite—or before embarking on an extended backpacking trip. You’ll find the Tuolumne Meadows Lodge on Tioga Road, near the Park's eastern entrance on Highway 120 East.

Free ranger-led campfire programs and guided hikes are offered daily for Tuolumne Meadows Lodge guests. Please sign-up at Tuolumne Meadows Lodge Front Desk.

The 69 canvas-tent cabins are constructed with metal-frames and cement platforms. Each canvas tent cabin can accommodate up to four guests. 

In keeping with the spirit of camping, there’s no electricity, televisions, or phones. Showers (for guests only) and restrooms can be found conveniently in the center of the camp.

Firewood: To protect Yosemite from invasive species that live inside cut wood, we ask guests to purchase their firewood as close to their camping destination as possible. You can purchase local firewood at most stores in Yosemite. You can learn more at the National Park Service website.
