Rentals & Day Use Facilities
We offer a variety of items for rent during your visit so that you can have more options for recreation and discovery. You can try new activities and gear and leave some of that bulky equipment at home. While most guests rent equipment upon their arrival at the Evergreen, you can also call before your visit and reserve gear ahead of time.

In addition, our neighbor, Camp Mather, has a host of facilities available for Evergreen guest use for a modest day-use fee. More details are provided below.

GPS Devices
Rent a Garmin GPS device for the day and enjoy one of the fastest growing hobbies around, and one that will no doubt become a mainstream technology in the years ahead. Using a GPS is easy and fun for everyone, and it will make your explorations safer.

Whether you are hiking, biking, or playing with the kids, GPS device can tell you exactly where you are, help you find out where you are going, track where you’ve been and get you home safely. GPS also enables more confident exploration off the beaten path, allowing you to keep track of your route, elevation gain and loss, distance to waypoints and total trip time. We will make sure you know how to use the units so you can get the most out of your rental.

We offer mountain strollers so you can hit the trail running (or jogging!!) with your child.

Our mountain strollers are three-wheeled, jogger strollers hearty enough to handle Yosemite's rocky trails. Two-hour and full-day rentals are available.

Adults - Two Hours: $15, Full Day: $25
Rental desk open 9-11AM and 4-8PM in the Recreation Center.

Snowshoes
In addition to guided snowshoe hikes, we also offer snowshoe rentals. All winter and spring there is great snowshoeing both around the Park and right out our front door. Furthermore, the High Country usually has snow well into the summer.

Modern snowshoes are lightweight and easy to use. We are happy to give you a quick ‘how to’ session and send you on your way with snowshoes and poles in hand for a memorable day’s adventure. We also can help with trip routing to ensure you have a fun day making fresh tracks in the Park.

Trekking Poles
What do the Europeans know that we don’t? That trekking poles are a must have item for hiking to help minimize impact on your back and knees, to get a full body workout and to assist on descents, water crossings and prodding your partner to wake up from their afternoon nap! Seriously, most guides use poles and once you get used to using them, you'll be hooked.
