There is a tiny "town" called Squaw Valley (actually not much more than a gas station and a small old motel.) Not the same as the Squaw Valley near Lake Tahoe so if you do a search make sure it's the right place. Also look in the area of Wilsonia, CA, which is in the park boundaries and may have some B&B's or vacation rentals. Also in that area are the John Muir Lodge and Grant Grove Cabins.

The money saved staying outside the park is not worth the drive back/forth up/down into the park.

Stay in the park if you can........
