Day Hiker Services

Attention! In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the NPS has permitted LeConte Lodge to serve day hikers, but with modified operations structured toward visitor and employee health and safety.  Until the lodge is permitted to resume normal operations, various amenities will not be offered and certain lodge areas will remain inaccessible.

*Strike through text denotes temporarily suspended services due to COVID-19.

Day hikers are those who hike to the lodge but do not have overnight reservations.

Day hikers may purchase a sack lunch containing a bagel, cream cheese packet, beef and pork stick, fruit leather, trail mix, cookies and Gatorade drink packet. The sack lunch is $13.00. Pre-ordering is not required. These are available from 12:00 – 4:30 pm daily in season. Day hikers are permitted to eat these sack lunches in the dining room until 5:00 pm, at which point the crew will stop serving beverages and must prepare the hall for overnight guest meal.

The lodge will also offer our day hikers beverages: hot chocolate, coffee, and lemonade for $4.00 each and assorted baked goods for $2.00 each from 12:00 – 4:30 pm daily in season. All cups must be returned to the kitchen by 5:00 pm.

Day hikers may purchase any of the items sold in the Lodge Gift Shop located in the office. Please refer to the list of souvenir items available. Payment is accepted by check, cash or credit card with ID. AMEX and gift cards are not accepted.
