Absolutely phenomenal. The staff is so friendly & accommodating. The food is incredible. There are lots of great day hikes or you can just sit, relax & take in the view. Plus you get a flushing toilet & a hot shower.

Nice 11.5 mile hike to get to your cabin. Great staff, food and views are magnificent. You can hang out and relax and read a book or go for a nice day hike to Hamilton lake which is 4 miles away Cabins come equipped with two comfortable beds and down comforters

I hate to review Bear Paw because I wish it were a secret I could keep to myself. The 11 plus mile hike is spectacular and one of my favorites. It shifts from Sequoia forest to granite edges to wooded areas to creeks...with a last tough push to Bear Paw where you are welcomed with a lemonade/water, a giant brownie...

It's stunningly situated, well appointed, the staff rocks and the food is perfect. There is a special comraderie that happens at all of the high sierra camps but Bearpaw is special. The main dining hall's front porch features a stunning view that all the guests gravitate to naturally. This makes for easy conversation and good new friends. It also helps...

It is a tough hike but worth every minutes. You get a hot shower, fresh made brownies and lemonade ready after you long hike. Gourmet breakfast and dinner served each day. The porch looks out over the Great Western Divide and you can greet other hikers while sipping you wine or cold beer.

This is not just a lodging, but an experience. First, you hike over 11 miles in the mountains to get to and from the resort. We had great weather for our trip. The staff of 5 was very attentive to the 12+ guests at the resort. My husband and I got to choose one of the very cozy tent cabins....

My family and I have been fortunate enough to visit and stay at the Bearpaw tent cabins on several occasions over the past twenty years. It's ridgetop location with a full on view of the Western Divide is without equal. The accessible day hikes are some of the best alpine hikes in the southwestern Sierras. The tent cabins are modest...

Hiking friends and I had 3 of the tents. Lucky me got tent #4, what a view. This place is my favorite hike-to-spot ever; the cots, the food, the family feel just can't be beat. Chad (manager), Michael, and Emma were the most friendly, helpful, best all around hosts ever. Really make you feel pampered, and they now have Cold...
