The Tuolumne Meadows Lodge is closed for 2022.

Situated next to the Tuolumne River, this is the perfect place to settle in after hiking in Yosemite-or before embarking on an extended backpacking trip.

Tuolumne Meadows Lodge features 69 canvas-tent cabins, each accommodating up to 4 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.

Meals at Tuolumne Meadows are served in the riverside dining tent, with a plentiful breakfast spread and dinner that's sure to fill even the hungriest hiker. Box lunches are available, and can be ordered for the next day. Dinner reservations are required, and can be made by calling 209/372-8413 before you arrive. See latest Yosemite Guide for current hours.
