Where to stay in Oakhurst

As the southern gateway town to Yosemite National Park, Oakhurst provides plenty of accommodation options. Most line Route 41, and you can choose from national-chain hotels, lodges, and bed and breakfasts. A couple of additional options lay away from the main road, and Bass Lake to the east provides a few rustic retreats. Crowds flock to Yosemite in summer, book your accommodations in advance if you plan to visit during high season.
