White Wolf Lodge

White Wolf
High Country Solitude
Set back in a quiet spot off Tioga Road, some 30 miles from Yosemite Valley, is the tranquil White Wolf Lodge. The Lodge is an excellent base camp for day hikes to Lukens and Harden Lakes. Nestled in a beautiful sub-alpine meadow generously decorated with wildflowers and fringed by Lodgepole pines, this is indeed a peaceful spot in Yosemite. White Wolf Lodge is open approximately from mid-June to mid-September, conditions permitting.

White Wolf Lodge Rehabilitation 2015

We’re excited to announce a substantial rehabilitation project for White Wolf Lodge scheduled for the summer of 2015. The plan, prepared in coordination with the National Park Service, includes foundation, roof, and interior work, including mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and ADA upgrades. The work maintains the buildings’ historic character and will be sustainable throughout construction.

White Wolf Lodge will re-open for the 2016 season after the construction is completed, but will not be available during the rehabilitation in 2015. Room reservations for the 2016 season will be available starting in June 2015.

Firewood Information

In an effort to protect Yosemite from invasive species, it is advised that you purchase your firewood at or near your camping destination.  Firewood can carry insects and diseases that threaten the health of Yosemite’s environment.  You can make a difference by buying and burning your firewood locally.  Local firewood is available at most stores in Yosemite.  For more information, visit the National Park Service website.
