Surrounded by tall pines and just minutes from Yosemite's southern entrance in the residential community of Fish Camp, This unique mountain cabin can be your family-friendly home away from home while exploring the natural beauty of Yosemite National Park. The Little Pine cabin is the smaller of two cabins at the Yosemite Forest Lodge.
To get here it's just a short drive off of Highway 41, through the forest along a narrow road that was once a railroad right-of-way. When you arrive you'll find your home situated in a gently-sloped clearing surrounded by a majestic grove of gigantic pines. Outside your home there is an open yard area, a private deck and covered porch areas so you can enjoy the forest environment comfortably in any weather.

It's best to contact us by email but you can call and leave a message if you prefer. When checking our calendar remember that we normally need a full calendar day between groups in order to prepare the house. Happy planning!

Refreshing Mountain Climate: The elevation here is just over 5000 feet; it is nearly always cool and shady in the summer, with comfortable daytime highs that average in the 70's (~20 degrees Celsius) and cool evenings with average lows in the low 50's (~10 degrees Celsius). There is very little or no rain during the summer months. The low humidity means your towels and swimsuits will air-dry quickly.

Relaxing and Convenient: Our prime location puts you away from the crowds, yet close to everything Yosemite has to offer. The southern entrance to Yosemite is less than two miles up the road. If you love the outdoors, this is the place to call home. There is so much do to here that you could easily fill your day with excitement without ever entering the park itself!

Location

Car: Necessary

The Little Pine cabin at Yosemite Forest Lodge is located in Fish Camp right across the highway from the Tenaya Lodge where you'll find a health spa, several dining options and lots of activities all year round. It's about a 5 minute drive from our house to the southern entrance of Yosemite National Park and about 45 minutes to the valley floor itself. You can try your luck at fishing or just splash in the water of nearby Big Creek or if you prefer, drive 20 minutes to Bass Lake for lots of beach and boating fun.

If you need to buy something small there is a convenience store right in Fish Camp. If you're looking for something more you'll find a full range of shopping and dining options in the town of Oakhurst just a 20 minute drive down the hill.

Ski: Yosemite's Badger Pass is about a 45 minute drive from our cabin. It is California's first downhill ski area at an elevation of 7200 ft. The snow is all natural and plentiful. The modest slopes and minimal development make this a perfect place for young skiers and families. With extensive cross-country ski and snowshoe trails, and even a tubing area, Badger Pass has all the winter fun you could ask for!
