The 143-room Rush Creek Lodge—described as having a rustic yet modern appeal—is set to open officially on June 15 in the Yosemite area. It will be the first new resort in Yosemite in 25 years.

Positioned just less than a mile outside of Yosemite National Park’s west entrance, the resort will offer plenty of activities to keep couples and the whole family happy. It has a main lodge, a general store, a restaurant and tavern, a pool and hot tub with poolside bar, and meeting space. The rooms, suites and hillside villas have decks to allow guests spend time outside to see the beautiful scenery, including what will surely be some incredible sunsets. Each room also includes a sitting area, a private bathroom, a refrigerator, and free Wi-Fi.

Menu items at the restaurant and tavern—which features a wood-fired oven and hearth—will change seasonally to ensure guests are served the freshest local California cuisine indoors and outdoors.
