The Bug is 26 miles downstream from Yosemite Valley on 50 forested canyon acres! Between us and Yosemite is the Merced River Recreational Area for swimming, walking, rafting, etc. Yosemite is open all year offering trekking, climbing, photography, skiing, ice skating, horseback riding, etc. Ten miles away, Mariposa is a Gold Rush town offering museums, & shopping.

We offer all kinds of accommodations from vacation rentals, private cabins, tent cabins to shared dorm or shared bathroom facilities. The dorms are licensed with Hostelling International.
The cafe orders fresh foods ranging from steak to vegan all day. Locals come here to eat as well as guests. We offer a health spa for a small entry fee that includes an H2O2 spring fed tub and a hot rock sauna. We offer yoga classes on weekend as well.

There are group facilities for those over 12 persons and offer groups packages as well. We do offer programing like fireside music, events, coursework, parties, etc for our guests regularly. We do offer close to all amenities a small mountain resort would and this former 100 year old Boy Scout camp. All guests arriving here via Amtrak get 15% off of anything,
