Wawona Hotel

The Wawona Hotel was established around the time of the Civil war, beginning as Clarks station, later called Big Tree Station.

Wawona was originally called Pallahchun ( meaning a good place to stop ) by early tribes. Presidents have stayed here, and it has been a Yosemite landmark since the 19th Century.

Near Wawona is the famous Mariposa Groves of great Sequoias, including some of the largest trees in Yosemite Valley
