YARTS, the Yosemite Area Regional Transportation System, provides daily peak-season round-trip transportation aboard deluxe motor coaches from several locations throughout Tuolumne County, including Sonora, Jamestown, the city of Tuolumne and Groveland. The coach provides the perfect vantage point for the scenery, and the price includes admission into the park. Custom and packaged tours can be arranged from various operators, including Extranomical Adventures, Mother Lode Adventures, Incredible Adventures and Tower Tours.
With multiple campgrounds inside the park and outside in Groveland and Sonora, day and overnight camping is a popular activity. Expert outfitters can lead a trip. For those looking for more modern amenities during their stay, multiple lodging options exist, including the new Rush Creek Lodge, the park's first new resort development in 25 years and located just half a mile from the north entrance. There's also the 20-acre family-tradition Evergreen Lodge and many historic inns providing a charming base in Groveland, about 20 miles from the park's entrance. For a familiar brand name, the Best Western Plus Sonora Oaks is a convenient and well-known lodging option in Sonora.
