Yosemite Lodging at Big Creek Inn B&B

Big Creek Inn is a 3-guest room bed and breakfast ideally located in Fish Camp CA. The Inn is situated at 5000 ft. elevation on a tranquil bank of Big Creek, just 2 miles from the south gate of Yosemite National Park. Each guest room offers unobstructed views, privacy and the peaceful sound of the year-round creek.

The hamlet of Fish Camp is a great place from which to explore the Park and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias (only 4 miles away) without the noise and crowds of valley floor lodging. In the wintertime, it is a great base for skiing at Badger Pass.  Bass Lake is 20 minutes away.

Frommer's describes Big Creek Inn as "everything you could want from a mountain lodging."

TripAdvisor.com ranks Big Creek Inn as the number one lodging in Fish Camp based on reviewer comments.

Windows, lighting and appliances are all energy efficient. Common area lighting is motion-sensored. All organic waste goes to feed our housekeeper's menagerie of pigs, goats, ducks and chickens.

This is the best B&B near the park. I’ve stayed elsewhere up there, and the service and quality can't match what I've experienced at Big Creek Inn. The rooms are well-appointed, and so clean! The innkeepers - Pam and John - are friendly, and really knowledgeable about Yosemite. This should be your first stop when looking for a place to stay around Yosemite.

Big Creek Inn has been a yearly destination for my husband and me for the past 6 years. Each year we look forward to our visit to the Inn for so many reasons. The rooms are absolutely the coziest. We love the close proximity to the park and a quick drive to the giant sequoias. Most of all, innkeepers Pamela and John are the greatest! We love catching up with them every year over a delicious breakfast. The warmth and kindness expressed here at Big Creek Inn keeps us coming back year after year.
