Yosemite National Park
Hotels in Yosemite National Park
Challenge older kids (14 and up) with an overnight trek to the quite plush (but dormitory-style) hut, 10 miles along a groomed Nordic trail.
In spring, there may be no better place to book than one of the 319 canvas tents at Curry Village, located right on the valley floor.
Just two miles outside the park’s south gate, the 302-room lodge combines comfort with great-lodge style—and it has its own skating rink.
This 1927 historic landmark in Yosemite Valley has a stunning setting, surrounded by forest, waterfalls, and towering cliffs and just minutes from the trailheads to El Capitan and Half Dome.
Yosemite has five hike-in High Sierra Camps: Merced Lake sits at 7,150 feet and is ringed by granite peaks. Reservations are available on a lottery basis.
This rustic lodge offers mountain bike rentals for wheeling through the park.
Stay at the 42-bed Vogelsang camp (10,300 feet), which does not, alas, have showers. The canvas tent cabins have beds with mattresses, pillows, and blankets; towels and sheets are included. Reservations are available on a lottery basis
