Rush Creek Lodge is a superbly designed destination within a destination, located 1/2 mile from the Highway 120 West entrance of Yosemite National Park, California. The first new Yosemite lodge in more than 25 years, Rush Creek provides a relaxed yet sophisticated experience inspired by the nature surrounding its 20-acre wooded hillside setting. Rush Creek features a mix of 143 lodge rooms, suites, and hillside villas, all with private decks, most with sunset views. Amenities throughout the property are designed for kids and adults alike: Outdoor fireplaces, innovative play area, pool area with pool bar, solar-heated salt water pool and two hot tubs; restaurant and tavern with indoor/outdoor seating; guided tours and free planning advice for exploring independently in and around Yosemite; daily on-site activities; general store. Rush Creek Lodge at Yosemite is a social enterprise dedicated to providing exceptional Yosemite experiences while maintaining social and environmental programs that make the world a better place. A sister property to the nearby Evergreen Lodge, Rush Creek provides the same warmth and genuine hospitality, and equally strong social and environmental missions. The lodge is a 3 hour drive from the San Francisco Bay Area along scenic Highway 120, the most direct route to Yosemite from the Bay Area, and open year-round.
