Under Canvas Announces First California Camp, Near Yosemite National Park

04/21/2024 by

After five years, a 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition Gold Medal, and a clamor of requests from bartenders and fans alike, Bulleit Frontier Whiskey is announcing the return of its 12-Year-Old American Straight Rye Whiskey.

"Under Canvas' expansion into California has been our goal since the brand's inception in 2012," said Matt Gaghen, chief executive officer of Under Canvas. "We look forward to bringing the Under Canvas experience to Yosemite, home to many outdoor enthusiasts and a sought-after destination for adventure travelers around the globe. Our spectacularly beautiful property will offer exceptional access to one of the most iconic national parks in the country, inviting guests to discover the beauty of the park and immersion in nature in an entirely new way."

Each of the safari-inspired tents will be furnished with plush king-size beds, luxe linens, a private deck, an ensuite bathroom and more. The camp's lobby tent will feature communal lounge spaces, dining areas and open game areas, all just steps away from an expansive, onsite yoga deck. The dining program will showcase al fresco and indoor dining, serving freshly made, seasonal dishes and a selection of curated California wines and craft beers. Under Canvas Yosemite will also offer complimentary onsite programming for guests, including acoustic live music, daily yoga, kids' activities, nightly s'mores and more, and Under Canvas' Adventure Concierge can assist guests in booking in-park and local experiences including rafting, rock climbing, fly fishing, stargazing, photography classes and more.

A cornerstone of the Under Canvas experience is the brand's Mindful Approach ethos. Under Canvas camps are designed to minimize disturbance, maximize open spaces, and flow with the natural topography of the land. The brand's commitment to minimizing light pollution and protecting the night sky are setting the standard in the industry, as Under Canvas offers the first-ever DarkSky-certified lodging properties in the world.
