After a backpacking trip in the Emigrant Wilderness, dropping your packs on the porch and having lunch/dinner + ice tea outside doesn't get any better for me. I also highly recommend the cabins, which are rustic, but still awesome.

This is just a great location and very popular. Countrified amenities so do not go if you expect Hyatt type situations. The people are all really great and seem to enjoy what they are doing. It appears to be a fishing paradise. The restaurant serves satisfying fare. Had a very interesting time speaking to a gentlemanly 25 year packer. You... More

I've been going here since about 1990, first as a delivery driver and then as a guest from about 2000. Most of my stays have been during the week and a few times on the weekend through the week. I get up there about every other year and stay about 4 to 6 days. Usually you have to book about... More

My husband and I had a fantastic burger at their restaurant. The service was a friendly and casual, as is the whole resort. We went up just to get out of the heat for a few hours at home in lower Sonora CA. We walked around the resort for a little bit then drove home.

Went up for the day with our family. The weather was perfect, everyone was so friendly. It was so nice to see the river. We went for a trail ride on horseback and had a wonderful time. My daughter caught rainbow trout. Can't wait to go back and camp.

My husband took me here for our anniversary for a full day horseback ride through the mountains. This place is gorgeous. The horses they use are Percherons (type of draft horse). The horses are large and will need a step stool to get on (17 hands). The horses are trained for climbing mountains, walking up steep rock and going across... More

For quite a few years we have been stopping at Kennedy Meadows RPS on our way to high Sierras and Eastern Sierras on Hwy 108 . The first time camping nearby, we decided to visit and had supper at the Lodge--very homey, and the food was country delicious, I remember a fruit cobbler or fruit pie that was really good.... More

Nice place to stop for lunch before going over the pass! Simple well prepared food. Also useful general store. But the really notable venue here is the old western bar. Real cowboys. Great jukebox. Dancing allowed. If you are into pack animal hiking expeditions, inquire here.
