Our location in the National Forest bordering Yosemite allows the best of all worlds, as the bride, groom and guests can enjoy the serenity and intimacy of our Lodge while having easy access to all of the Park's wonders. Guests can stay in comfort in our fully-furnished cabins and cottages with private decks.
Wedding ceremonies can include the wonderful sights and sounds of nature, and usually take place outdoors in neighboring meadows, in our new event hall, Tuolumne Hall (click here for floor plan), or in our main plaza (open-air or tented). Or couples can have their ceremony in the Park and return to the lodge for their reception. Rehearsal dinners and brunches can be held in our restaurant, our outdoor plaza dining area or our event hall.
Between events, bride, groom and guests alike can both take in the beautiful sites of Yosemite National Park and enjoy the recreation, facilities and fun at the lodge.

Make your wedding weekend complete by helping your guests enjoy the beauty and grandeur of Yosemite. Wedding weekends are always busy times, and having scheduled recreation activities allows guests to spend quality time together and make the most of their limited time in the Park.
To assist you in planning your recreation, we have crafted several great guided outings tailored to the needs, desires and time constraints of wedding groups. Each activity can be customized for your groupís interests and schedule.
