Things to Do Near Yosemite View Lodge

Yosemite View Lodge practically kisses the border of Yosemite National Park, and provides easy access to all that Yosemite has to offer – from sightseeing to hiking and more.

Outside the park, you’ll also find excellent whitewater rafting during the spring and early summer months with guided trips that start right in El Portal. Take time to explore the restored steam engine, caboose, and human-powered turntable located just west of the El Portal Market and gas station, where you can pick up snacks and sundries. Plus, a quiet hiking trail connects the top of El Portal with the community of Foresta above, a beautiful place to wander among spring wildflowers that is second only to Hite Cove.

Yosemite View Lodge is also home to several convenient dining options. The River Restaurant and Louge serves classic American Fare, which you can eat indoors or outside on the patio. Indulge in a delicious pizza at Parkside Pizza, or grab some supplies at the Yosemite View Convenience Store to make your own breakfast, picnic lunch, or dinner.
