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.
Plush leather couches, chairs, and tables fill this comfortable space, which features a 20′ vaulted ceiling and exposed timber posts. Walls are lined with large maps, historic artwork, and shelves of books and games. An indoor/outdoor fireplace crackles away in evenings and during colder months, and air conditioning cools the space during our hotter months.
For those needing to stay connected, phones, and Wi-Fi are provided for guest use free of charge.
We designed the space to accommodate many other 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
The Recreation Center is also the ideal place to plan your Yosemite area adventures. Our Recreation Staff is available daily from 8 AM to 8 PM to answer Yosemite-related questions and to help you book guided hiking, biking, fly fishing and other recreation trips.
We’ve assembled a library of guidebooks and other relevant outdoor/adventure books, maps, and photos for guest use. We also offer handouts with “off the beaten path” excursions that showcase the best of Yosemite and the surrounding area.
During the holiday season, the Recreation Center becomes our living room complete with Christmas tree, presents and stockings for kids hung by the fireplace.
