First visited here over 30 years ago - loved it then and loved it now! This completely avoids the crowds and traffic of Yosemite Valley and gets you as close to nature as possible while still being comfortable and having someone else prepare good dinners. They expect to be closed for renovations in 2015 but we will make our reservations...

O.K. this may not be for everyone, but for me and my family, including two boys, ages 10 and 15, this was a great stay, something a little different during our two week trip in Northern California! As accommodations are hard to come by, I was quite happy to score two days "glamping" at the White Wolf Lodge in the...

Went there in the end of July and just stayed a night. We loved it! This is our 4 or 5th visit to Yosemite, and we've always stayed in the valley before (usually Curry Village). Staying at White wolf was a completely different experience! Its small (only 24 tent cabins), and very isolated which means that you aren't in the...

All the necessary comforts for a pleasant stay in the wilderness are provided within clean tent cabins. Rustic, and yet the camp beds and linens are warm and comfortable. There is coffee at the lodge in the morning. Meals are available for < $60/day. They have made it easy to be comfortable in spectacular nature with minimal planning, and packing....

Peaceful oasis up on the Tioga road, about 50 minutes away from the crowds of the valley. Spacious tents on cement platforms, 2 twin cots and one double cot in ours. Linens, blankets and towels are included. The tent cabin also included a folding table, 4 chairs, a bookshelf, a hanging mirror and a lantern. The wood stove is good...

Any trip to California should include Yosemite and it should include White Wolf lodge. It gets you away from the main crowds. It is fun and safe and friendly, and at the meal times you meet other lodgers, which heightens the experience. Some families stay for several days as it is a good centre for walking and the beautiful lakes...

If you're expecting any luxury at all do not stay here. I see several reviews from unhappy people because for the price they were expecting something much less rustic. They're tent cabins, not luxurious Safari cabins. Running these camps is quite expensive and the costs are passed on. For me they're worth every penny. White Wolf is out of the...

Enjoyed this high elevation location. Quiet. Friendly staff, beautiful meadow even in a drought year. Bathrooms need work, but generally clean. Everything you need is there, and don't count on phone service. A bit far from Yosemite Valley to make it a base camp as Tioga Rd is windy and people drive fast on the curves. Great hikes and peaceful....

Rustic but comfortable enough tent cabin for seasoned outdoor oriented traveler. Advise not to use wood burning stove to heat tent cabin - smoke will linger in the cabin for days, better to have few hours of morning chill vs smoky tent/clothes/etc. Bring food/cooler/water, small (very limited-think size of small closet) store kiosk. We ate dinner at Lodge 1st night...

It's always a pleasure to stay in the High Sierra camps! The proximity of White Wolf to the upper Yosemite hiking trails and other High Sierra camps make it an ideal place to "land" for our first night to acclimate. We love the scenery and peace at the Lodge. The staff are always helpful and friendly, even when contending with...

“It IS camping, The accommodations were comfortable and clean, each tent pretty equal. We liked the inner circle so all friends could congregate for afternoon visiting outside the tents.”
