Yosemite to Lake Tahoe

Jump to last reply

My husband and i are driving from carmel to yosemite and then continuing on to lake tahoe at the end of June. We have a limited amount of time, but would like to take a day and a half to explore yosemite before heading up to tahoe.

Currently the plan is to drive from Carmel and spend the night outside of Yosemite (all lodging within the park in booked). We plan to spend the entire first day in the Park as well as several hours the next morning before driving to Lake Tahoe.

Since we can't stay inside Yosemite, can anyone recommend any budget places to stay outside of the park? Or at least a convenient town? Does it make sense to spend the first night on the west side of the park and the second night on the east side for different routes and a more convenient exit to Tahoe? We'd like to see as much of Yosemite as possible in this short amount of time. Any other recommendations or advice is much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
