Evergreen Lodge Custom Camping

Has anyone 'done' the 'custom camping' option at Evergreen Lodge - it sounds great. Anyone had any experiences of it?

We had booked it a few years back - sounded great, however, a month before we went, we got a call stating that a big group was coming in and needed all the tents. They offered to move us into a cabin or to come a different week. We ended up changing our trip all together. I have heard great things about the cabins from friends, have not heard anything from someone who has actually camped there.

Hi Juxie

Massive thanks for the extremely speedy response.

Did they offer to put you in a cabin for the same price as the camping?

We are meant to be staying at Cedar Lodge in El Portal as part of a fly-drive tour but it gets such bad reviews that I'm looking for an alternative. We are 2 adults and 3 girls aged 14,14, and 11 and the camping looked like great fun. Obviously we will not have our camping gear with us (coming from the UK) and it sounds like heaven - sleeping almost under the stars in such a beautiful place.

Any suggestions?

Yes - the cabin was offered for the same price. My kids were just set on tent camping and as we live in California - we just changed our plans. The other option - not sure if you'll have a car or not - but the yurt camping in Yosemite is always fun. They are canvas tents with cement floors and cots with linens. A step up from tent camping - but still roughing it. They have yurts in the Valley and in Touloumne Meadows.

Evergreen Lodge is a really fun place for kids. They seem to have activities all the time, s'mores every night and lots of really safe play space.
