Pet Policy
While we are all pet lovers at Rush Creek, pets (other than service animals) are not allowed in or around guest rooms, in vehicles or on property. The lodge is not a self-contained property; it is set in the woods with no fences, which translates to high potential for conflicts with forest animals (bears, deer, squirrels, etc). Pets are easily riled in the woods, which creates disturbances for other guests. They also create unpleasant issues for guests with allergies.

Please be aware that pets are highly restricted within Yosemite National Park. The Park Service only allows pets on fully paved trails and roads within Yosemite Valley, on a leash 6' or shorter, and they cannot be left unattended. They are not allowed at any of the lodges in the Park, and they are not allowed in the Yosemite High Country.

For all of these reasons, we cannot allow pets at the lodge. A $250 fee will be charged for violations. Please help us to enforce this policy by not bringing your pets with you on your visit. We appreciate your understanding.
