About Yosemite Field StationYosemite Field Station Office and Classroom

The Yosemite Field Station (YFS) is located in Wawona, a historic village comprised of private and park residences just inside the park's south entrance. It's nestled in an open, old-growth pine forest along the South Fork of the Merced River, only five miles from the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias. It is ideally situated to support class field trips, workshops, writing retreats, small conferences, interdisciplinary collaborations, and field research projects throughout Yosemite National Park and the adjacent Sierra National Forest.

YFS has offices, classrooms and research space located in a refurbished historic house and stable built in 1934. Guest cabins are available for overnight stays for up to 55 people total, and have internet access. Other housing arrangements can be made for larger groups, using the nearby Wawona Hotel and local campgrounds. Each cabin has a fully equipped kitchen, fridge(s) and a stove. All you have to bring is food, bedding, and personal items!
