Ideal for those who enjoy getting a bit closer to nature

Custom Camping is a memorable alternative to staying in our cabins. Guests arrive to a fully furnished, set up tent site and sleep among the big trees in our spacious tents.

Standard Tents feature one queen foam mattress, mesh top with views to nature, and accommodate 2 people. Family Tents feature one queen and two twin foam mattresses, mesh windows with views to nature, and accommodate up to 4 people. Amenities include sleeping bags & liners, pillows, towels, toiletries, camping chairs, and a lantern.

Custom camping guests enjoy exclusive use of our bathhouse and have access to all property facilities. Custom Camping offers all the fun of ordinary camping without the hassle and discomfort.

Please note that Custom Camping is offered from May – October and has limited availability, so book in advance. Cooking is not allowed in our campground due to potential bear/fire risks.

Pet Policy

While we are all pet lovers at the Evergreen, pets (other than service animals) are not allowed in or around guest cabins, in vehicles or on the property. Pets are often riled by forest animals (bears, squirrels, etc.), which can create potential conflicts with nature and disturbances for other guests. Pets also create issues for guests with allergies.

Please be aware that pets are highly restricted within Yosemite National Park – the National Park Service only allows pets on fully paved trails and roads on the Yosemite Valley floor, on a leash 6 feet 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 Yosemite’s 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.
