If you are looking for a place to stay while visiting Yosemite, then you have to check out the cutest glamping cabins at Sierra Meadows in Ahwahnee, CA! They are just 10 minutes outside of the town of Oakhurst and about 30 minutes from the Yosemite South Gate. It’s the most affordable glamping spot in the Yosemite area, starting at $99/night. This was my first time glamping, and I loved it! Mix the peacefulness of sleeping in the great outdoors with a comfortable mattress, and I could do this more often! This is absolutely the best glamping near Yosemite!
*Side note- I am not sponsored for this post. I stayed here on my own and just wanted to share my experience. However, I will disclose in the future if I am ever sponsored for a post.
I stayed with my husband in the smallest cabin they offer at this park, the 120 sq ft micro cabin (they do have bigger cabins!). This adorable cabin is perfect for a solo traveler or a couple (and even allows dogs) for $99/night.
It has everything you need for a comfortable stay- including a memory foam queen mattress, electrical outlets, ceiling fan, heat/AC, mini-fridge, kettle, tea, coffee, utensils, shower caddy with robes, and towels. There is no private bathroom but an easily accessible shared bathroom with showers, filtered water, and a dishwashing station. I even saw a Tesla charging station on the property!
They have live music events on the property (you can check when upcoming events are) and games you can borrow to play.
If you have a bigger group, no worries, they have tiny cabins that sleep four and family cabins that sleep six and have private bathrooms.
You could bring along a camping stove and some cookware and make yourself meals on the deck or eat at the local restaurants close to the cabins in Oakhurst. I recommend eating at Smokehouse 41 BBQ for some delicious BBQ and beer.
Check-in was contactless and very convenient- they emailed me which cabin number and the door code when the cabin was ready. So we could go straight to our cabin and settle in as soon as we got there- no need to check in with the front desk. Though there is someone available if needed on site.
Across from the lodging is 140 acres of beautiful meadows (formerly a golf course). You can hike around, and they even have free bikes for you to use to ride the trails. Here you can see all different kinds of wildlife and hammocks to lounge and unusual sculptures to view. And there’s a pool for use in the summer.
