Surrounded by tall pines and just minutes from Yosemite's southern entrance in the residential community of Fish Camp, this traditional yet unique mountain cabin can be your home away from home while exploring the natural beauty of Yosemite National Park. This is the larger of two cabins at the Yosemite Forest Lodge.
To get here it's just a short drive off of Highway 41, through the forest along a narrow road that was once a railroad right-of-way. When you arrive you'll find your home situated in a gently-sloped clearing surrounded by a majestic grove of gigantic pines.
Outside your home there is an open yard area, extensive decks and a covered front porch so you can enjoy the forest environment comfortably in any weather.
The elevation here is just over 5000 feet; it is nearly always cool and shady in the summer, with comfortable daytime highs that average in the 70's (~20 degrees Celsius) and cool evenings with average lows in the low 50's (~10 degrees Celsius). There is very little or no rain during the summer months. The low humidity means your towels and swimsuits will air-dry quickly.
Spring and early Fall feature striking forest colors and wetter weather. In late Fall, Winter and early Spring the forest takes on a special, more rugged beauty not available during the warmer months. Then you should expect rapidly changing weather conditions and be prepared for snow!
