home page YOSEMITE MOUNTAIN VIEW is located inside the gates of Yosemite National Park! We know of no better location for your Yosemite adventure. Most Yosemite destinations are just minutes from your doorstep: skiing at Badger Pass, golf at Wawona, the giant redwoods at Mariposa Grove, the waterfalls of Yosemite Valley and the world class vistas from Glacier Point and of the Tunnel View.

We also urge our guests to explore the many things to see & do surrounding Yosemite in an area aptly known as Gold Country. Here you'll discover the rich history in the 49er towns of Jamestown, Sonora, Columbia and Mariposa. Gold panning, these many years later, is still a popular family activity. Jamestown is home to Railtown 1897 State Park where you can ride authentic steam driven trains. The town of Columbia is so unique, so historic that preservationists made the entire downtown a state park!

The Tuolumne, Clavey & Merced Rivers are home to some of the best whitewater rafting in North America. These same rivers, their several tributaries and the lakes they feed into are home to great fishing...be the quest for salmon, native brown or rainbow trout.

Opportunities and destinations may vary with the time of year. Our guests can literally cross country ski from their front door for several weeks during the winter. During the summer, there's open access to Tioga Pass, Mono Lake and the ghost town of Bodie. Because of our altitude (6,200 feet here at YOSEMITE MOUNTAIN VIEW), we urge all visitors to carry chains during all but the summer months.

This is just a small sampler of the many things to see & do here in Yosemite/Gold Country. For even more information about this great area, click here.
