About the neighbourhood
Wawona (entirely within Yosemite National Park) offers small town hospitality, world class scenery and adventure, amenities such as local shopping, fine dining and golf at the historic Wawona Hotel as well as access to Yosemite Valley, Badger Pass, Glacier Point, and the 1000+ square miles of Yosemite's high country.
