Laundry near Wuksachi Lodge

We will be a Wuksachi Lodge mid-October. Is there a place to do laundry nearby? Will the grocery store at Lodgepole be open at this time of year?

Things close is an understatement.

We went there mid October and the gas stations were even closed, so fill up your tank before you drive into the park.

Many lodges were closed and we watched as some of them packed up their things on the last day for the season...

so I'd bring enough for the week (or plan on a day trip to 3 Rivers or some other area for the day). The road to 3 Rivers in mid October can be covered by dense fog - and that way you cannot see the 180 switchbacks to and from the area.

By the way if you plan to eat at Wuksachi Lodge make reservations in advance. We watched as some hungry souls were turned away at 4:30 in the afternoon from eating at the restaurant for the entire night as it was packed - there was no where else to go. I think they were able to get some take out though. We had reservations even for breakfast. The park that time of year was nice and we had some warm sunny days.....but I did want to mention this. its not just drop by and get a seat at the restaurant.
