Yosemite Area

Yosemite area visitors on a time budget often wonder how to see all the sights? What to do, and how to do it? They appreciate suggestions from locals who know the area and the National park well. Some even find satisfaction with helpful travel adjustments when unexpected circumstances force changes to travel plans.

So, here are a few of the helpful hints you should know about.

Depending on the time of year you may run into traffic or snow chain requirements. The longer then expected distances and windy roads eat-away at your time budget, not to mention stopping to take-in the many beautiful sights. The Yosemite area is an easy place to loose an hour or a whole day…a place that makes it hard to keep to a schedule. Plans on travel over the Tioga Mountain pass during the winter when it is closed will spoil the best of plans.

Exploring options that save time and help prioritize choices is important for the best experience, whether you are on a road trip or simply looking for a home base to see the Yosemite area. On the other hand, if your visit is for rest and relaxation or just a get-a-way we can suggest short, easy, and fun local experiences.

Sugar Pine Ranch is also a great gathering place for reunions, weddings, birthdays, club events, and educational workshops for small groups. Our location also lends itself to larger events where an event planner assumes responsibility for the entire event. Our staff will care for the rooms, and provide security and parking.
