Set near meadows abundant with wildflowers and surrounded by pine trees, you'll find tranquility here at the remote and peaceful White Wolf Lodge.

White Wolf Lodge features 24 canvas-tent cabins and four traditional wood cabins with private baths.

Guests gather morning and evening in the central dining room-a rustic wooden building with a porch that's perfect for relaxing and taking in the views. There is also a small store on site.

See website for more information about the cabins, to check availability, to book a room, and to get an idea of what to bring, and what to do in the White Wolf area.

The lodge is the ideal starting place for hikes to Lukens and Harden Lakes. Also, several ranger programs are available in the area in the summer. See the latest issue of the Yosemite Guide for a programs schedule and dining hours.

Hazards & Warnings

You may store food inside your car (out of sight, with windows completely closed) only during daylight hours. Empty your car of all food, drinks, coolers, toiletries, and trash after dark.
