About Evergreen Lodge & Rush Creek Lodge

The Evergreen Lodge is a recently expanded historic tourist lodge and resort idyllically located on 20 acres bordering Yosemite National Park.  The lodge is highly recommended by Fodor’s, called a ‘Hidden Gem’ by Sunset Magazine, and described by Frommer’s as “the classic Yosemite experience."  The 90 year-old lodge had always featured cabins in the woods, a retail store, an excellent restaurant and a classic tavern.  In 2002, the lodge was purchased and underwent a major expansion and modernization, reopening in 2004 with 50 new guest cabins, new guest facilities, new recreation programs and new on-site staff and manager housing.  The lodge again expanded in 2009, adding 24 additional guest cabins (for a total of 90) and completing a variety of facilities and public space upgrades.  The expanded Evergreen retains its original warmth, character and personal touch while providing the best all-around lodging and recreational facilities in the Yosemite area. 

Rush Creek Lodge is the first new resort to join the Yosemite area in over 25 years, and is located just ½ mile from Yosemite’s Highway 120 West entrance.
Set on twenty woodland acres, this hillside ‘destination within a destination’ boasts a grand main lodge and a mix of 143 lodge rooms, suites and two-bedroom hillside villas, all featuring a deck overlooking nature, the majority with sunset views.  Like its sister property the Evergreen Lodge, Rush Creek is brimming with amenities and activities. Rush Creek provides the same warmth and genuine hospitality, along with equally strong social and environmental missions.

Evergreen & Rush Creek are both a amazing places to live and work, and both lodges provide great career opportunities for talented staff and managers.  We are looking for warm, friendly people with high standards and high integrity who have been top performers in their previous roles.  Since both lodges have a significant recreational focus, we seek staff and managers who are excited about the outdoors and lead a healthy, active lifestyle.  

Evergreen Lodge & Rush Creek Lodge are Certified B Corporations and proudly operate an onsite Intern Program.  Click the Intern Program Tab above to learn more.

Evergreen Lodge & Rush Creek Lodge Intern Program

In addition to their primary function as a tourist Lodge, the Evergreen & Rush Creek run a Youth Employment Program in which 18-24 year-old young adults from urban backgrounds join our staff for a program of career-oriented training and work experience in a healthy, supportive community, coupled with exposure to outdoor and recreational life experiences.

Although providing a great guest experience is our first priority, our Intern Program is central to what we do at both Evergreen & Rush Creek, and we are proud to run an enterprise with both a business and a social mission.  Our Program’s success hinges on our ability to find exceptional managers and hourly staff who provide support and mentoring for our interns.  Those who are most successful and happy at the Evergreen or Rush Creek are genuinely excited about helping others and feel our Intern Program enriches their job, rather than adding an additional burden to an already challenging operating role. 

Evergreen Lodge & Rush Creek Lodge are also Certified B Corporations, having met rigorous, independent standards of social and environmental performance. The combination of hospitality, recreation, culture, idyllic setting, environmental sensibility and social mission make them a very special place and unique resorts.

Our Location

Yosemite National Park one of the most spectacular places on Earth and is a recreation-lover's paradise. 

Yosemite is a diverse landscape filled with rivers, glacial carved valleys, picturesque alpine meadows and peaks, several of the world's highest and most spectacular waterfalls, and the world's largest trees and tallest granite walls. 

Evergreen & Rush Creek's location at the doorstep to Yosemite, yet in a serene and beautiful old growth forest setting away from the hustle and bustle of Yosemite Valley, is ideal for enjoying all the park has to offer.  When not working, our employees enjoy an endless array of outdoor activities, including hiking, biking, touring, climbing, snowshoeing, geocaching, fishing, rafting, swimming, backpacking, and more.

Given Yosemite’s remoteness, the Evergreen Lodge is not served by any convenient public transportation however Rush Creek Lodge is served by the YARTS system, depending on season.  Please check the schedule here: http://www.yarts.com. For arriving staff, we can assist in arranging transportation to the lodge if you do not have a car (fee may apply).
