This complex dates back to the 1930s, and was completely reinvented in 2004 as an upscale, family-oriented resort well off of the beaten path on the road to Hetch Hetchy Reservoir. Today it is one of the best places to stay in the Yosemite area, with a great slate of recreational activities and some of the slickest cabins in the Sierra Nevada (colorful décor, vaulted ceilings, interesting art on the walls). You can choose from a few different sizes of cabins, a 2,500-square-foot house, or a “Custom Camping” site (tents, sleeping bags, and lantern included). Come nighttime, the restaurant is excellent, and the tavern has character to spare.
