Tuolumne Meadows Lodge

Tuolumne Meadows Lodge

Your Basecamp for Yosemite Adventure

As this is a seasonal location dependent on the ability to access and set up via Highway 120 Tioga Road, opening timing can at times be unpredictable. Unfortunately, due to a delayed snow-related timeline in access and extensive set up time for the Tuolumne Meadows Lodge opening has been delayed to now open on July 15, 2024. All reservation holders have been contacted and canceled at this time.

Operating Season:

  • July 15, 2024 - September 15, 2024 (conditions permitting)

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 available for Tuolumne Meadows Lodge guests. Please inquire at the Tuolumne Meadows Lodge Front Desk for specific times and locations.
