Groveland, Yosemite National Park, California

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Serene, secluded property nestled in the woods
  • 1 mile from Yosemite’s western border
  • Cozy, rustic cabins with private decks
  • Sirius Radio, coffeemakers, and mini-fridges
  • 2 recreation halls offer books, games, and free Wi-Fi
  • General store sells souvenirs, fresh deli sandwiches, toiletries
  • Bigger, family cabins available
  • Lively dining area in main lodge serves 3 meals daily
  • Fun tavern for drinks, offers kids' "drink" menu too
  • Seasonal activities include live music, campfire sing-alongs and equipment rental (bikes, snowshoes)
  • Large outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, with bar

Cons

  • No kitchens in cabins; no cooking allowed
  • No TVs or phones (a pro for some)
  • No fitness center or spa (though massages are available)
  • Cabins are a bit close to one another

Bottom Line

Evergreen Lodge is a 22-acre cabin resort surrounded by Stanislaus National Forest, about one mile from Yosemite National Park’s western border. The 90 cabins come in different sizes -- some perfect for newlyweds, others great for a large family -- and are rustic, cozy, and comfortable with large private decks. Techies beware: There are no phones or TVs in the cabins, and the Wi-Fi service in the recreation halls is less than reliable. It's a great spot for nature lovers, though, who want to be disconnected from the world for a bit and enjoy the serenity of the surrounding pine trees instead. Guests looking for something active to do will find it too -- there's some equipment for rent on-site, such as mountain bikes and snowshoes, plus fly fishing, bocce ball, rafting, horseback riding, and two recreational halls filled with games, books, and arts & crafts materials. And the outdoor pool opened in Spring 2012, making the Evergreen an even better spot for families.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Surrounded by Stanislaus National Forest, about one mile from the western border of Yosemite National Park and close to Hetch Hetchy Valley.

Evergreen Lodge at Yosemite isn't actually "at" Yosemite. It's about one mile from the western border of Yosemite, nestled in the pine woods of Stanislaus National Forest.

Stanislaus National Forest is one of the country's oldest national forests and encompasses nearly 900,000 acres of land in Northern California. With scenic rivers and impressive granite formations, it is popular a destination for visitors from the San Francisco Bay, as it’s only about a three-hour drive away.

Yosemite National Park encompasses over 700,000 acres across east central California and the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, it draws millions of visitors each year to its majestic cliffs, towering waterfalls, picturesque canyons, and variety of flora and fauna. It also offers a wide range of outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, skiing and climbing.

  • 3-hour drive from San Francisco airport
  • 6-minute walk to Birch Lake
  • 25-minute drive to Hetch Hetchy Valley
  • 1-hour drive Tuolumne Meadows
  • 1-hour drive to Olmstead Point
  • 2-hour drive to Yosemite Valley
  • 3-hour drive to Mariposa Grove
