These tent cabins are very nice. I love that they're spaced further apart than Curry Village. Quiet area and beautiful stars at night. Tent was warm and toasty with stove. Dinner one night at the lodge was good but pricey. Will definitely be back.

We stayed in a tent cabin at White Wolf after hiking through several of the High Sierra camps and found it to be disappointing. As we are not from California, we couldn't bring all of our camping gear with us and were at the mercy of White Wolf's totally overpriced restaurant. Our extremely mediocre dinner cost $150 for four of us which came as a complete surprise since there was no menu and no choice. Though all of Yosemite is lovely, compared to the real High Sierra camps White Wolf is not in a particularly breathtaking location. It felt more like car camping than being in a beautiful national park. If you want to get off the beaten path in Yosemite don't go to White Wolf especially if you can't bring your own food with you.

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 for 2016 as soon as possible.

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 High Sierra's in Yosemite. Any of the hotels located outside of the park are SO far away, I would have hated to have stayed anywhere that was not located in Yosemite, after a long day of sightseeing! the roads are all windy and hotels outside are a TRECK outside the park!! Granted, The White Wolf is about 45 minutes away from the Valley but it was a nice drive and at least we were in the park. As for White Wolf itself, you need to bring a few things, which I did (I read reviews so I was prepared)...a type of lantern (we had an LED fold up one which was perfect to put in our suitcase) as the lighting in the tent was not that great. The tent did have a small lantern but it wasn't too bright. And some warmer clothes as it can be considerably cooler up in the 'high country" at night even in mid July. There isn't anything to eat or drink either other than the food they prepare at the "lodge' which is quite expensive to buy for every meal. I brought along a small cooler similar to a carry on and brought that with us, which we used for some drinks and breakfast foods, like yoghurt, butter, jam. We had stopped beforehand at a grocery store to buy the other things needed for breakfast and snacks. The only real hassle though, was that we had to put EVERYTHING and I mean everything in the bear locker which was behind our tent. Even our toiletries had to go in there as bears will smell these things if they are in your tent and possibly come for a 'visit' while you are sleeping! You can't even leave things in your car as the bears will actually pull the doors off to get in if there is any type of food in there. This was, to be honest, a hassle. My husband had forgotten his 'nose strips' in his toiletry bag and had to go out in the pitch black (we also brought flashlights which are absolutely necessary), go out to the bear box and get his toiletry bag out to get the strips! UGH! there is a whole system to get into the box too so it's not just open it and get in...there are a series of bolts, pins, etc! I brought a combination lock too as I wanted to lock our stuff in the bear box while we were out in case any human predators decided to help themselves to our stuff! Also buy extra fire starter (and a lighter) too as the camp does provide some but not enough to keep your fire in the small 'oven' going during the night. There's an iron stove in your tent for heat which is cozy but you'll have to start the fire and keep it going if it gets cold during the night (which you will). The camp provides the fire wood and newspaper. The shower house and baths are fine...they were clean and it is only shared amongst the White Wolf campers (there's a small campground nearby for people who bring their own tents, but they are not authorized to use the shower house and toilets) so there was no problem finding a shower or having a toilet available. Other than these factors, the tent was cozy! It comes with a table and 4 chairs, 4 cots with a heavy wool blanket and big comforter with clean linens. there's a book shelve to put your 'dinner wear", cups, some clothes, etc. and some hangers. they also provide towels. At night, they shut off the lights so it's quite dark so you can really see all the stars! And the kids had fun at the nearby 'fire pit' where they roasted marshmallows (we brought them and put them in the bear box!) at night. We did have the dinner one night but didn't reserve a spot at the communal table because we had just arrived and didn't know we had to reserve a spot and had to eat in our tent which was a little strange (we had to cut steak with a plastic knife!!). The cook did prepare the food at the last minute which was nice (it was actually good...a steak, baked potato and asparagus) so I can't complain too much. the kids were starving so we had no other choice that night. On subsequent nights, we stopped at the grocery store in Yosemite Valley and bought a rotisserie chicken or ate before we got to the campsite. All in all, it was an experience we will never forget! That's what vacationing is about, isn't it? We stayed in nice hotels and vacation rentals for the remainder of our trip so in the end, we had a variety of places to experience. I liked being directly in nature and the scenery and setting is something special so the White Wolf was fine for me (I don't think I'd want to do it for a long period of time but for two or three days, it was good). Plus this is away from all the crowds down in the Valley. I'd recommend it for anyone wanting something a bit different and not fancy!

Room Tip: There are only 24 tents and all of them are the same...though some have better parking spots for their cars being closer to the tent front door.

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 middle of a lot of visitors. Common facilities are the dining rooms and the showers. There's no electricity, a generator only powers the restrooms and the dining room. They turn off the generator at night, so there's no light except for you tent lantern after 11pm!

The tent cabins are great. We had a spacious one, with 4 beds (1 double, 2 single), and a wood burning stove. They give you a nights worth of firewood and kindling as well!

Would highly recommend this place - it's a great location on Tioga road, and a great experience!
