While brand new, Firefall Ranch has historic Yosemite roots, having served as a stop on the original
stagecoach route to Yosemite in the 1870s. Firefall Ranch sits on 300 sprawling acres of meadowland and Sierra foothills along Yosemite’s Hwy 120 West corridor, the most direct route to Yosemite from San Francisco. It’s owned and was built by long-time local contractor Robert Boyer in partnership with the Chicken Ranch Rancheria of Me-Wuk Indians of California and is operated by First Light Resorts.


First Light Resorts is home to three remarkable lodges, each ideal for exploring Yosemite National Park: Evergreen Lodge, Rush Creek Lodge & Spa, and now Firefall Ranch. Each lodge serves as a ‘destination within a destination’ and brings its own distinctive style to amenities such as restaurants, taverns, general stores, heated saltwater pools & hot tubs, daily activities, and professionally guided excursions, with no hidden resort fees.

Leading in sustainable travel, all three lodges meet rigorous standards of social and environmental
performance, operating and fully self-funding a behind-the-scenes Youth Program, comprehensive water conservation systems, and award-winning stewardship efforts.
