Yosemite National Park embraces a stunning vastness of scenic wildlands in the Sierra Nevada that stretches along California's eastern edges. The park covers an incredible 1,170 square miles of breathtaking natural splendor. Ranging from 2,000 feet to more than 13,000 feet above sea level, the park encompasses vast wilderness, mountains, lakes, waterfalls, and groves of giant sequoias that are unparallel to other national parks. Wildlife abounds from the many deer that frequent our property grounds, hence the name of our town, Buck Meadows, to the mountain lions, black bears, bobcats, and many other Sierra animals. Every season brings its own unique picturesque moments, from blooming wildflowers during the spring and summer to the colors of fall and snow in the winter. It is hard to believe that this serene oasis is just hours from bustling metropolitan cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles.
The Buck Meadows Restaurant located right next door offers great American dining throughout the Spring and Summer and with limited hours during the Fall and Winter. With a full menu of good old hearty home cooked meals from eggs and pancakes in the morning to steak for dinner, The Buck Meadows Restaurant is a great place to start your day before your hike and end it after touring The Park. The Buck Meadows Restaurant also offers beer and wine and occasional live music with darts and shuffleboard.
