Under a grove of oak and pine in our own small valley with a stream, the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort offers a magical scene with cabins on stilts dotting the mountainside where walking is part of the experience. This old camp dates from the 1930’s and we now offer private hotel style rooms in cabins, tent cabins, hostel cabins, house rentals along with group facilities, a health spa and a highly regarded restaurant. You will encounter backpackers, young families, and outdoor adventurers in this fun place just 27 miles downstream from Yosemite Valley itself.
