Welcome to Kowana Valley Folk School and Lodge

Nestled in a quiet mountain valley in the Sierra Foothills, about 8 miles from Yosemite National Park as the crow flies, is the place we call Kowana Valley.

With its clear mountain streams, forested lands and wide open spaces, it is a place that inspires creativity, relaxation, adventure and freedom.

With ongoing and specially scheduled workshops, flexible accommodations, and a variety of activities both on site and nearby, there is something for everyone.

Whether for a short or long stay, it will be a memory you take with you.
