Bird Watching

Want to see some great species of birds? The Sierras is the place to be. Keep a eye out for one of three pairs of American Bald Eagles! What a sight!  Bring your bird group and receive special group rates!


While fishing is plentiful in the surrounding mountain lakes and valley rivers, there is nothing as great as fishing the West Walker just as the sun is peaking above the nearby mountains. There isn't quite anything like the excitement of fish coming alive with the first morning sun and landing a large rainbow (or German Brown if you are really lucky).

Besides the nearby West Walker River, there are many great fishing spots (lakes, rivers and streams) are all located within a short distance from Meadowcliff. For a partial list of locations, click here.



Come spend some relaxing time around the pool while soaking up some sun or the special spiritual powers that emanate from the beautiful cliffs located directly behind the lodge. And enjoy the gorgeous views from every room.
