Junction Campground, Yosemite East Side
Inyo National Forest @ Tioga Pass, Hwy 120
Yosemite High Elevation Camp
Tioga Pass camping on the eastern side of Yosemite National Park, just outside park boundaries is Inyo National Forest lands. Snow is generally deep and the road doesn’t open until late spring or early summer.
Inyo Junction Campground – located at the intersection of Tioga Pass Hwy 120 and Saddlebag Lake Road.
Several prime campgrounds line the busy Tioga Pass, highway 120. Most NFS campgrounds are small and located along the busy highway just outside the National Park gate. This one is set back (slightly) from the main road and accessible by RVs. It is also located next to the historic Tioga Pass Resort, walking distance and on the same side of the highway.
High altitude small lakes, great views, thin air, snow melt, spectacular elevations and dark skies makes this an awesome stargazing spot. Summer is busy with travelers, tent campers and day hikers. First come, First serve, when it is open (only half the year).
