Rush Creek Lodge officially opened to guests, welcoming guests to the first resort in the Yosemite region in more than 25 years.
Conveniently located less than a mile from the park’s west entrance, the 143-room rustic modern resort is nestled on 20 wooded acres and offers an abundant array of activities for families and couples alike.

- Ideal for creating unforgettable getaways inspired by nature, the resort’s Lodge Rooms, Suites, and Hillside Villas ($215-$495) all feature decks overlooking the wilderness, the majority with sunset views.
- Everyone can fuel up for the day at the resort’s restaurant or tavern offering fresh, hearty California cuisine. The restaurant’s open display kitchen showcases a wood-fired oven and cozy hearth and features indoor/outdoor seating options.
- Kids can enjoy the striking mountain scenery from high above the ground during a zip-line adventure and cannonball into the 2,400 square foot, salt water pool.
- Adult guests can head to the hills for a crowd-free, guided hike offered by the resort’s full-service recreation department featuring over 30 guided excursions and wellness programs, or steal away for a soak in the hot tub just for grown-ups.
The resort is just a 3-hour drive from the San Francisco Bay Area along scenic Highway 120, the most direct route to Yosemite from the Bay Area, and with year-round access to the Park.
