Welcome

Main Lodge at Tamarack Lodge at Bear Valley.  7 lodge rooms, 2 bunk rooms, 3 chalet rooms, 2 condos,  & camping.

8/10/2018 -Tamarack Lodge has NOT been affected, other than HAZE (usually in the morning hours), from the Fergusen Fire or Donnell Fire. 

Please not that the Pacific Crest trail going south, some parts of the Carson Iceberg Wilderness, Spicer Reservior (on water only), and Highland lakes area all have been temporarily closed due to the Donnell Fire which is over by Highway 108.

Even with these closures we are still one of the least affected area’s of the High Sierra with smoke worse to the North and South and lower foothills. 

Note when you book a room – unless we have evacuation orders (highly unlikely as the fires not likely to reach us unless there is a big change in wind), we are NOT giving refunds.   

We do have space available for the coming weekends and offers mid week specials.  Cheapest rooms rate are booked through this web site.  Hope to see you soon.  Innkeepers and new owners, Tim and Vicky Johnson.
