Stay Near Yosemite National Park

Over half of Yosemite National Park is in Tuolumne County--it’s the least crowded half too.

While in Yosemite, walk in the majesty of towering giant sequoias in the Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias or in the incomparable and open scenery of Tuolumne Meadows, a spectacular subalpine meadow surrounded by granite domes and cliffs. Or, hike around Hetch Hetchy Reservoir to uncommon waterfalls that are comparable in beauty to their Yosemite Valley rivals.

Other highlights of the park include Yosemite Valley with its iconc cliffs like Half Dome and El Capitan and towering waterfalls,  Wawona’s Pioneer Yosemite History Center and Glacier Point with spectacular view of Yosemite Valley and the high country in the spring through fall.
