Under Canvas, the leader in upscale, outdoor hospitality, has a new camp to covet:  Yosemite, the brand’s first-ever California camp. Under Canvas Yosemite will open in the spring of 2025. The brand’s 12th camp, Under Canvas Yosemite, is set in a serene, mountainside forest surrounded by mature, Yosemite-native trees, just 10 minutes from the west entrance of Yosemite National Park at Big Oak Flat Information Station.

The much-anticipated 80-acre Under Canvas Yosemite will open for its inaugural season on May 22, 2025, and is accepting reservations for stays 22 May – 27 October, 2025.

Under Canvas’ expansion into California has been our goal since the brand’s inception in 2012″, said Matt Gaghen, chief executive officer of Under Canvas. “We look forward to bringing the Under Canvas experience to Yosemite, home to many outdoor enthusiasts and a sought-after destination for adventure travelers around the globe. Our spectacularly beautiful property will offer exceptional access to one of the most iconic national parks in the country, inviting guests to discover the beauty of the park and immersion in nature in an entirely new way”.

Yosemite is California’s most visited national park for good reason

Yosemite

As California’s most-visited national park, located in the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains, Yosemite National Park is known for its multiple waterfalls, including Yosemite Falls, one of the tallest waterfalls in the country; giant sequoia groves; the sheer granite cliffs of El Capitan and Half Dome; two remaining glaciers, and more.

Under Canvas’ onsite Adventure Concierge will assist guests in booking in-park and local experiences–from rafting, rock climbing and fly fishing, to guided hiking, driving tours, stargazing, photography classes and more–and an on-site Guest Experience Coordinator will be available to recommend favorite local hikes and must-see attractions.

Camp Life

Each of the safari-inspired tents will be furnished with plush king-size beds, luxe linens, USB charging packs, bedside lanterns, heated mattress pads, a private deck, and ensuite bathroom that features a hot shower, sink and flushing toilet.

Unique lodging tent accommodations will include the brand’s proprietary Stargazer Tents, complete with  viewing window above the bed – perfect for stargazing – as well as the El Capitan Suite Tent, featuring two tents adjoined by a private deck, with its own outdoor area – perfect for the ultimate family or group getaway.

The camp’s lobby tent will be adorned with West Elm furniture and feature communal lounge spaces, dining areas and open game areas, all just steps away from an expansive, onsite yoga deck. The camp is also within close proximity to trailheads and a family-friendly, natural swimming hole.

Under Canvas Yosemite will also have a YARTS (Yosemite Area Regional Transportation System) stop directly across from the entrance, offering car-free access into the national park multiple times each day.

Dining & Amenities Under Canvas

The dining program will showcase al fresco and indoor café-style dining, serving freshly made, seasonal dishes and offering a selection of curated California wines and craft beers. Grab-‘n-go lunch items and snacks, perfect for fueling the day’s adventure,  will be available for purchase throughout the day.

Under Canvas Yosemite will also offer complimentary onsite programming for guests, including acoustic live music, daily yoga, kids’ activities, nightly s’mores and more.

Premium brand partnerships will provide complimentary guest use of lululemon mats and yoga blocks, Black Diamond hiking poles, and a Gibson guitar for an acoustic fireside strum. Additional partnerships provide access to curated retail offerings for purchase, including lululemon activewear, Hydro Flask drinkware, Sun Bum sun products, Pendleton® wool products to stay cozy and warm, and an exclusive Under Canvas line of apparel and dog-friendly items so all family members can explore California in comfort and style.

Travel For Good

A cornerstone of the Under Canvas experience is the brand’s Mindful Approach ethos, which is reflected in the company’s development and operational initiatives. Under Canvas camps are designed to minimize disturbance, maximize open spaces, and flow with the natural topography of the land. In an effort to reduce energy and water usage, reduce carbon footprint, and maximize guests’ immersion in nature, Under Canvas camps do not offer Wi-Fi but do feature pull-chain showers, low-flow toilets, rechargeable battery pack chargers, and low-level lighting.

In fact, the brand’s commitment to minimizing light pollution and protecting the night sky are setting the standard in the industry, which has recognized Under Canvas for having the first-ever DarkSky-certified lodging properties in the world. In addition, Under Canvas and global environmental nonprofit The Nature Conservancy (TNC) have joined forces to fund conservation and raise awareness through education, volunteer efforts and donation programs.
