Gatherings of a Different Nature
Whether you’re gathering for sentimental moments such as a wedding or family reunion, or upping your game with a corporate meeting or an organized retreat, Evergreen is the perfect spot for people who are hungry for a fresh alternative to the typical setting.
Evergreen Lodge is only a 3-hour drive from the San Francisco Bay Area and sits just outside the northwest entrance to Yosemite National Park on scenic Highway 120. The Evergreen is one of the most conveniently located lodges for access to all three major parts of the Park: Yosemite Valley, Tuolumne Meadows and the lesser-traveled Hetch Hetchy (which is also exempt from the Park’s summer Peak Hour reservation system).
Evergreen Lodge is a newly expanded historic resort featuring 88 cabins spread throughout 20 acres of forest. Wandering through the Evergreen you’ll discover all sorts of surprise diversions for play or relaxation – hammocks, horseshoes, bocce, life-size chess, and forest disc golf, to name a few. Everything here is thoughtfully maintained to provide a sense of connection to nature, wilderness and history, while still affording you the modern creature comforts and respecting the surrounding natural resources.
Guests make themselves at home in the own cozy cabin in the woods, with a private deck facing nature to create a sense of privacy, yet within easy reach of the central Main Plaza, Tavern and Recreation areas.
Our on-site professional guides lead over 30 types of Yosemite adventures throughout the year. They also facilitate the daily activities throughout the lodge, including our nightly tradition of roasting s’mores by the outdoor fire. From hiking or snowshoeing among giant sequoias to touring Yosemite’s icons and hidden gems, the Evergreen’s Recreation team is your backstage pass to Yosemite.
Food & Beverage
Expect great food and wine in a relaxed mountain atmosphere. In addition to our full service Restaurant, Tavern, and Pool Bar, our catering staff coordinates a variety of dining options to suit your expectations and budget. From simple buffets and box lunches to full service ‘mountain elegant’ meals, guests are pleasantly surprised by the quality of cuisine we provide in our remote setting.
