Washburn Fire at The Redwoods In Yosemite

HomeWashburn Fire at The Redwoods In Yosemite

Dear Redwoods Guests and Yosemite Travelers,

First off, let me thank you for your reservations with The Redwoods in Yosemite. We appreciate your business very much!

As you may know, as of July 8, 2022 at 4:04 p.m. we had to close our Redwoods facility on Chilnualna Falls Road and evacuate our Yosemite office in Wawona. The Washburn Fire became a threat to Wawona and guests, residents and staff were ordered by NPS to leave as quickly as possible. Currently, thanks to the amazing work of all fire fighting personnel, our small and vibrant town of Wawona and The Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias are getting back to start business as usual on July 28, 2022 when we will gladly welcome our guests.

We are currently working on cancelling or re-booking reservations scheduled to arrive today through July 28, 2022. Guests with cancelation requests will receive a reservation cancelation email from us and a full refund to the credit card on file. Note, if you have purchased travel insurance, please contact your insurance provider. In these trying times, please allow up to 7 days time for our team to process your refund as we have hundreds of customers to reach out to. If you have not received any communication from us after one week, please give us a call at 888-225-6666 or send us an email at [email protected] If you need to adjust reservations made through another travel site (ex. Airbnb, VRBO/Homeaway, Booking.com, Expedia, etc.) please contact them for assistance. Guests willing to re-book or re-schedule their July reservations for a later time this year, are offered a discount.

Important: Guests who have left important belongings, documents and medications behind during the evacuation and are unable to re-enter Wawona, please reach out to us as soon as possible at 559-683-2318!

Kind Regards,
