I would of rated this place 4 stars if they allowed cooking. They will not let you boil water or make coffee. Ridiculous. We camp in bear country frequently and we cook! They have a restaurant there and they cook!! It's silly. Oh and there is a campground within walking distance and you can cook there. Hmmm....feels like a money... More

As our first time in Yosemite - I think we were totally spoiled with the location. The campground nearby was full as was the lodge, but it still felt as if almost no one was there - in the best way. The lodge sits on the river and Miller Cascade. You will fall sleep to the sound of rushing water.... More

It initially took me 2 weeks of calling every day to get rooms. The online reservations never came up with any availability. So I would call one day and be able to get 1 night. So we ended up with 3 nights in 3 different "rooms". We took this as an adventure. By May 9, we had our beds situated... More

We stayed here for 2 days as part of our honeymoon tour of the USA and it easily sticks out as a highlight. The outdoor feel of the tent really captures the feel of the forest and we will never forget our trip here. We loved the communal style seating arrangements for the restaurant, we met some amazing people we... More

I was raised in the central valley, the town of Ceres, so I frequented this area alot. I first went to the area when I was a kid in boy scouts and then as an adult when i got married. We took our own tent, and were a little late getting there so it was dark upon arrival. I found... More

This was our first time in Yosemite with our teens, and we wanted to be in the park — not roughing it on the ground, but not living in luxury hotel either. The tent-cabins of Tuolumne Meadows Lodge (TML) seemed like a good choice. Location was a major factor since we wanted to do many of the high country hikes... More

The name Tuolumne Meadows Lodge might easily conjure up visions of a rustic (but luxurious), log-cabin style lodge with a huge stone fireplace and a grand dining room filled with exquisite wooden décor. Maybe like one of those lodges built by the CCC back in the 1930s that are found in so many national parks… That’s, ah, not quite what... More

It's Tuolumne Meadows, need I say more?????? We climbed Lembert Dome. We hiked around Olmstead Point. We sat near the cascade and played Scrabble. We had cocktail our every night by the river. We sat by the huge campfire by the main lodge and meet some real nice people from all over.

We lucked in to an end-of-season vacancy at this tent-cabin lodge in the Yosemite high country. Not a motel, or fancy lodge, this place offers platform tents with wood stoves, and a nearby shower building. There's a tent-style dining hall with hearty meals served more-or-less family style. For us it was an enjoyable to transition back into civilization after days... More

Toulumne Meadows Lodge offers a very special experience. It's a great place to stay and take a variety of day hikes, or to begin a trek. It's a bit of luxury in the wild, in that you get wonderful food, a warm fire at night, hot showers, and good company. Highly recommended.
