As a hungry backpacker, nothing could be better. After a long day on the trail, what an exquisite pleasure to go to the White Wolf Lodge. We stayed in one of the wonderful canvas tents (equipped with beds, linens, blankets, pillows, a table, chairs and a wood stove to chase away the chill in the morning) and ate at the lodge for both dinner & breakfast. The food was PERFECT! Dinner is served home-style and goes around your table in huge platters. There were 5 courses including HOME MADE bread, salad, soup, entree and dessert, which when we were there, was authentic New York Cheesecake. Okay - any backpacker knows that if you ever put hiking and cheesecake together, you've surely died and gone to heaven. The home made soup and the salad were excellent too, and the main course, for us it was creamy chicken linguini, was nothing less than amazing. In the morning, the buffet style breakfast included home made whole wheat pancakes - so lovely. Each meal was a bit pricey, and to stay over you need to book as far in advance as possible, up to a year, which isn't too early. For dining, you'll probably be able to get a table if you're willing to wait for an opening (especially on a peak summer season weekend), but reservations are strongly recommended. We were in Yosemite for several nights and ate at several places including Curry Village and the lodge at Wawona, and the fare at White Wolf was absolutely the best. No question. It's a rare treat indeed.
