Evergreen Lodge at Yosemite introduces Custom Camping,
Expands Its Guided Recreation Program
GROVELAND, Calif. - This spring Evergreen Lodge at Yosemite unveils custom camping, a new concept in which guests arrive to a fully set-up tent site with all the equipment provided, and expands its recreational program, which includes alpine fly-fishing, bike & hike tours and GPS/Geocaching. The historic lodge is described in "Frommer's California 2006" as an "idyllic, affordable, and crowd-free hideaway."
New this year at the Evergreen is "Custom Camping," a 'cushy' camping option for those who enjoy getting closer to nature without the hassle of setting up camp. Guests arrive to a fully furnished (and fully set up!) tent site, including comfortable airbeds, sleeping bags with liners, pillows, towels, toiletries, camping chairs and a lantern. Not bad for $45 to $75 per night!
Set among the big trees, these spacious, mesh-topped tents offer views of the stars. Custom campers have exclusive use of Evergreen's new bathhouse and have access to all property facilities and activities.
Evergreen Lodge, established in 1921 and located near the serene Hetch Hetchy Valley of Yosemite, has long been a getaway for those seeking to avoid the crowds in Yosemite Valley. In 2004, under new ownership, the Evergreen was extensively upgraded and expanded. The 70-cabin resort now offers an, all-around Yosemite experience.
