US-based upscale outdoor hospitality brand Under Canvas is set to make its California debut with the opening of Under Canvas Yosemite on 22 May 2025.

The new 80-acre camp, nestled in a mountainside forest and surrounded by native Yosemite trees, will offer guests a serene retreat just ten minutes from the national park’s west entrance.

The camp’s location is further enhanced by a YARTS (Yosemite Area Regional Transportation System) stop directly opposite the entrance, providing guests with convenient car-free access to Yosemite National Park.

Under Canvas Yosemite is poised to deliver a luxurious outdoor experience with safari-inspired tents equipped with king-size beds, high-quality linens, private decks, ensuite bathrooms, and additional amenities.

Under Canvas CEO Matt Gaghen said: “Under Canvas’ expansion into California has been our goal since the brand’s inception in 2012.

“We look forward to bringing the Under Canvas experience to Yosemite, home to many outdoor enthusiasts and a sought-after destination for adventure travellers around the globe.
