Just five miles from the west gate of Yosemite National Park, the 400-acre Yosemite Lakes campground still has plenty of material comforts. Held up by a latticework of wooden tent poles, the campground’s yurts come furnished with futons and queen-size beds. In a separate kitchen area, a two-burner stove sits next to a refrigerator and white cabinets filled with assorted cookware and utensils. Even with the cozy accommodations, Yosemite Lakes keeps the focus on nature. Every yurt comes adjoined by a deck and sits amid picnic tables. River yurts overlook the Tuolumne River and each includes a mounted outdoor propane grill. But campers can also use the fire ring and evening campfires for roasting treats and destroying incriminating overdue notices from the library. Because the Yosemite Valley is only a stone’s throw away, a short drive will take you to several active pursuits, including river rafting, rappelling, and walking through the Moaning Cavern—a cave so large it could hold the entire Statue of Liberty.
Nestled 8 miles south of Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Cedar Lodge inspires guests with a peaceful view of the Merced River, its surrounding foliage, and looming mountains. Gold-striped wallpaper and canopy beds add an air of richness to guest rooms where King Midas once holed up to write his memoirs, and an onsite restaurant serves breakfast, burgers, and beers throughout the day. The sights of Yosemite draw tourists year-round, unveiling natural wonders such as glistening waterfalls and the monolithic rock formations of El Capitan. Guests retire indoors to unwind at the lodge's spa, or engage in rigorous pruning competitions in the varying temperatures of an indoor-outdoor pool.
