South Gate Entrance – Don’t be fooled!
When Yosemite National Park was created it did not include the Southern area of the current national park. Private land owners subdivided Section 35 into lots. Subsequently Yosemite National Park was expanded to the South to include the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias. Section 35 was now inside the National Park.
Today this area is called Wawona and is home to the historic Wawona Hotel and Golf Course, the Pioneer History Center and, of course, The Redwoods In Yosemite. In Section 35 there are over 300 homes, a school, library, general store, fire department and other facilities. The Redwoods In Yosemite is a privately owned management company that manages 132 privately owned homes for vacation rental in one of the most unique locations in the United States; Yosemite National Park.
The Redwoods Bistro
Guests visiting The Redwoods In Yosemite can stretch their legs and walk their pet on these private roads in one of the most beautiful places on earth. They can grab a bite and shop at the bistro and gift shop. Weddings and family reunions continue at The Redwoods In Yosemite throughout the Park closure. Guests staying in their vacation homes enjoy the Fall colors and the peace and quiet of having this little piece of Yosemite all to themselves.
The fully equipped vacation homes range in size from studio to 6 bedrooms, most with fireplaces or wood burning stoves and private decks with BBQs. Many are pet friendly and have spectacular views of Yosemite’s Wawona Dome and the South Fork of the Wild and Scenic Merced River. In the nearby towns of Oakhurst and Mariposa there are many restaurants, antique shops and several theaters. Less than 15 minutes away guests can enjoy a luxury spa and fine dining. The OTHER Giant Sequoias in Nelder Grove are located just 30 minutes outside of the Park and are OPEN.
