Located within 6miles from hetch hetchy Valley Evergreen is your perfect spot if you are travelling with kids, as there are tons of activities to do within the resort for you and your kids that you don’t actually have to try hard to keep your kids entertained.

Cabins:

Evergreen lodge has a variety of cabins to fit all family sizes and can accommodate from 2 to 20 people. Being a family of four, it’s hard to find a place which can provide some space to everyone and our 2 bedroom Family cabin was quite a big one which comes with  two bedrooms, a huge bathroom, living room and a spacious porch with lot of seating.

Play area:

When you see their play areas, you would know that they have built it keeping families in mind. There are 3 play areas at Evergreen designed for babies and Toddlers and one of the play area was right infront of our 2 bedroom family cabin. It was so convenient for me that I was actually able to check on my toddler playing at the play area right from my bedroom’s window.

There are two outdoor play areas and both had different activities to do in there like Slides, Ziplines, Swings, Rope web , Rope climbing and a lot more. There’s also a indoor play area which has a baby corner with toys for babies and rest of the area is for bigger kids, toddlers and adults.

Rope Climbing

Pool:

Talking about the pool, I must say it had some amazing views over looking the valley of mountains and a perfect spot to spend your time in the pool which is heated to 80 degrees year round watching the sun going down. There’s tons of seating as well where you can sun bath or just relax with family.

Restaurant:

We loved eating at Tavren in their open air dinning patio and there’s plenty of options to choose from their menu for both kids and adults. You can also book a bed and breakfast package and get the food delivered right at your cabin specially on those lazy mornings. Apart from the Tavren restaurant, there’s a general store right beside the Front Desk where you have some quick grab and go options.

Fun activities:

Apart from kid’s activities, There are lot of trails around the resort which are a great way to introduce hiking and adventure to your kids.

The recreation center has a coordinator who can help you in exploring the area beyond the Evergreen, We got to know about the lakes around the resort and tips for visiting hetch hetchy valley which I believe is  great for first time visitors like us.

Remote Working & Schooling : 

There is no Television in the cabins and zero reception but there’s free WiFi access through out the resort and cabins which makes it a perfect place to Work or School while having the vacation kind of feel. There are so many beautiful and scenic spots from where you can take your zoom meetings without using that green screen.

Schooling was so much fun for my little one that he was taking his classes from desks located at the paly areas and do the activities during his break hours. There are also computers with Internet access in the Recreation Center and Tuolumne Hal for public use.

Covid Precautions:

  • Additional safety measures are taken while cleaning & sanitizing the cabins
  • You will find atleast one person sanitizing the public areas all the time right after guests leave the spot.
  • All the staff are always wearing the masks throughout the resort.
  • Evergreen Lodge is widely expanded and there will be a lot of space for everyone to freely wander in open space. However, you still need to put on your mask when you are in public areas like Outdoor Play areas when there are other families, Restaurants, Front Desk, General store, Recreation center, Indoor Play areas  and everywhere where there’s people around you.
  • One thing which impressed me was their sanitizers, You will find tons of sanitizers placed all around the resort including play areas and pool.

Tips:

  • Do not forget to ask for maps at the reception when you check in, one is a resort map which guides you to the things in the resort and the other is the area map, which shows the nearby scenic nature spots.
  • There’s no oven or kitchenette in cabins but you are free to use the oven located in the general store located right beside the Front Desk.
  • Evergreen is very strict about it’s smoking policy, No smoking anywhere in the resort except for the lodge’s parking lot.
  • The road to hetch hetchy opens at 8am and closes by 5pm. So make sure you plan your day trip to hetch hetchy accordingly.
  • I Would suggest to visit hetch hecthy in the mornings right after the gates are opened to avoid crowds and busy road on the one lane mountain.

Summary :

If you love Yosemite but want to avoid the crowd specially during this Pandemic, then Evergreen Lodge is your place and additionally would suggest you to visit on weekdays to avoid crowd at the Valley.
