Welcome to the Evergreen Lodge, an historic hotel nestled in the woods bordering Yosemite National Park.

RECREATION CENTER - The Recreation Center is the preferred spot for guests to relax and unwind (outside of the tavern) and is the center of all recreation planning and evening activities at the lodge.

We designed the space to accommodate many uses including:

  • Playing board games, building puzzles, reading or just hanging out
  • Making s'mores or participating in other kid's programs
  • Talking to our recreation experts and learning about our Guided Recreation Program
  • Accessing maps and handouts of the Yosemite area 

TUOLUMNE HALL - Located across the plaza from the Recreation Center is Tuolumne Hall, the Evergreen's game room and theater.

This beautiful structure features a 20' vaulted ceiling and a dramatic 10' high window with views to the stars, as well as walls covered with historic photos.

  • Tuolumne Hall offers a variety of activities for guests of all ages, including:
  • A parlor game area with pool table, shuffleboard and foosball
  • A fun, colorful toddler play zone
  • Board games, game tables and an arts & crafts area
  • Comfortable sitting areas

Tuolumne Hall’s side room features an intimate 25-seat theater. The theater is the venue for several of our complimentary evening activities, including movies, naturalist slide shows and guest speakers.

MAIN PLAZA - The Main Plaza is the central courtyard that joins all of our communal spaces, including the Main Lodge, Recreation Center and Tuolumne Hall. With its varied facilities, the Main Plaza is a hub of activity both day and night.

The plaza’s 1,200 square foot Sun Deck provides a great spot for guests to relax and unwind. The deck offers a wonderful outdoor setting for reading a book, playing a game, enjoying a glass of wine or stargazing.

Across the plaza from the Sun Deck is one of our kids play areas. The plaza play area was designed by Ron Holthuysen of Scientific Art Studios and features a large natural sandbox with plenty of sand toys and three Native American Miwok tee pees (called Umachas). These 10' bark tee pees were hand constructed with material from fallen trees on our property. Kids love this unique play area, and parents can enjoy various plaza amenities while their kids play safely in sight.

The Main Plaza also features a grand outdoor stone fireplace. The fireplace is a frequent venue for our evening s’mores, popular with kids and adults. The sitting area at the fireplace offers a cozy setting any time of year.

In one corner of the plaza is our idyllic open-air covered dining patio. The patio, which is connected to our Main Lodge, allows guests to dine al fresco in a covered, heated space with views to the plaza and the woods.

GENERAL STORE & GIFT SHOP - Our General Store & Gift Shop, located adjacent to our Reception Desk, has something for everyone.

We offer a great selection of gifts and souvenirs, including apparel, historic artwork, locally made crafts, photographs from award-winning photographer, Robb Hirsh, Yosemite memorabilia, nature books and cool kid's items. Many of these gift items are made by local artisans, so you can feel good about supporting the local community.

MASSAGE CABANA - Our standalone massage cabana, nestled in the woods, provides an idyllic setting for private full body massages. Feel your stress and tension melt away in the pampering hands of our massage therapists.

After your day’s adventure, stop back in to pick up happy hour supplies, including a broad selection of beer and wine, or bring the family by for ice cream or a candy treat.

In case you left something at home, we stock a variety of sundries, including toothpaste, suntan lotion, batteries and more. We also carry outdoor items and toys, including water bottles, walking sticks, nature exploration kits and stuffed animals.
