Yosemite is now open, as are the 50 new two-bedroom Tenaya Lodge Explorer Cabins that opened in 2019. Tenaya Lodge, a luxury establishment in Fish Camp, just two miles outside the park’s southern (Wawona, Highway 41) entrance, has long been a DogTrekker favorite. The dog-friendly Explorer Cabins are scattered over 27 forested acres walking distance from Tenaya Lodge, Jackalopes Bar & Grill and activities, including hiking. Book direct and savemore »

Heads up: you will once again need reservations to visit Yosemite National Park this summer, whether its for day-tripping, camping or lodging. But no big deal, just keep checking on protocols and procedures so you don’t travel all that way just to be locked out.

At any rate, you don’t even need to enter the park to get an eyeful of scenery in Mariposa County, which is bisected by Highway 140 leading to the park’s El Portal entrance on the west and Highway 41 on the south.
 
Spring is the perfect time to visit with your pup, as temperatures are on the rise, waterfalls are gushing and wildflowers are starting to bloom. You’ll find dog-friendly lodging, dining, hikes and historic sites in small towns including Mariposa, Coulterville, Fish Camp, Midpines/El Portal and Catheys Valley.
 
You’ll find fun places to stay with your pup, too. Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite in Fish Camp, just two miles from the park's southern entrance, is a luxury resort with a lodge, cottages and 50 dog-friendly cabins. Go online to check out the property’s Fido Friendly Package.

The English proverb ‘let sleeping dogs lie” might have been the right advice back in the 13th century, but certainly doesn’t apply when your pup wakes up in a beautifully appointed room at Yosemite’s Tenaya Lodge or in the privacy of one of 50 two-bedroom dog-friendly Explorer Cabins, surrounded by wide open spaces. more »

Ruff-ing It in Yosemite National Park

Ruff-ing It in Yosemite National Park

“Is Yosemite dog-friendly?” That’s one of the questions most asked by DogTrekker readers. The answer depends on how “Yosemite” is defined. We at DogTrekker define it not only as inside the park, but dog-passionate Mariposa County, affectionately known as the "Mother of Counties" because it initially encompassed one-fifth of the state of California, Including Yosemite National Park.
 
Inside the park, leashed dogs are allowed on most fully paved roads, sidewalks and bicycle paths, unless there is a sign that specifically forbids them. more »
