See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

The first new lodge to open in Yosemite National Park in more than 25 years is now accepting reservations for June 2016 travel and beyond. Rush Creek Lodge has confirmed its opening will be June 15, 2016. In honor of the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary in 2016, the lodge is offering a “Find Your Park” $100 lodge credit for 2016 stays booked by the end of 2015.

Rush Creek Lodge will feature 143 rooms, suites and villas, each with decks overlooking the Sierra Mountains. The 20-acre lodge features a main lodge, restaurant and tavern, a swimming pool and hot tub, general store and full-service recreation department that includes activities both on property and within Yosemite.

The new lodge is located less than a mile from the 120 West entrance of Yosemite National Park, and is the sister property of nearby Evergreen Lodge.
