Yosemite Travel Updates Winter 2020
Lodge Closed for the Season
Reopening Feb 12, 2021
In keeping with the latest state health order, Evergreen Lodge must temporarily close on Monday, December 7th.
Although the current order expects to allow lodges in our area to reopen on December 28th, our annual winter closure begins right after the New Year, so we’ll look forward to sharing a fresh start with you when we reopen for the year on President’s Day Weekend, February 12, 2021.
We’ll be kicking off a full year of activities celebrating 100 years of Yosemite adventures at the Evergreen, so there’s a lot of good fun to look forward to!
If you’d like to visit Yosemite before then, we invite you to stay at our sister property, Rush Creek Lodge, located just down the road near Yosemite’s Highway 120 West/Big Oak Flat entrance.
Tioga Road closed for the season on November 20, 2020
Tioga Road (continuation of Highway 120 through the park) is now closed for the season with an expected reopening date of late May or June. If you planned to drive to Evergreen Lodge from the East side of Yosemite, you’ll need to find an alternative route. Make sure to visit the National Park Service Current Conditions page for the current status of other roads within Yosemite.
Yosemite is Open for Day Use
Day Use Reservation Tickets No Longer Required
Yosemite National Park announced that in support of California regional efforts, starting Monday, December 7th the park will be open 8am – 5pm for day use only. Day Use Entry Tickets are no longer required.
When EVERGREEN LODGE is Open…
The ways in which we enjoy the Park and our lodge amenities are a bit different, but most everything is available including our swimming pool, hot tub, Restaurant, Tavern, General Store, guided tours, games, and nightly s’mores by the outdoor fire.
When necessary, the Restaurant and Tavern operate on a takeout basis, so you can still enjoy great food and drinks around property, in the privacy of your cabin or on your private deck.

- Please call or email us at (209) 379-2606 or if you have any questions or concerns.
Although the way in which we enjoy our adventures is different, Yosemite is as incredible as ever, and we can’t wait to share an amazing time with you and your loved ones.
