Visit Yosemite | Madera County

Madera County is known as California's Gateway to Yosemite.

As you drive to Yosemite, you'll find that Madera County has much to offer; restaurants with amazing menus featuring fresh locally grown ingredients, award-winning wineries along the Madera Wine Trail and Yosemite Sierra Wine Road, incredible art galleries and inspiring museums throughout the region. It’s possible you may spend more time outside Yosemite than you ever imagined. Add in the outdoor fun and beauty of Bass Lake, and you'll see Madera County, combined with Yosemite, makes for a perfect vacation. 

No matter where you're coming from, Yosemite's southern entrance takes you through some of Yosemite's most iconic spots - The Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias, Tunnel View, Glacier Point and more - all accessed via the Southern Entrance.

 So, come for Yosemite, stay for the wine, the food, the arts & culture and the fun.
