We will be flying in and leaving Seattle early Sat afternoon, July 20. Then heading west.
Our goal is to hike 7 basin loop Sunday. We are very worried we will not find a place to tent/camp Sat night during the peak of vacation season. Any advice in or north of ONP?
Murdock Beach aka Round Rock Beach?
Salt Creek Rec Area is already full (we tried).
Bear Creek Campground?
Two years ago when Yosemite was full, a Ranger took pity on us and suggested that if we car camp a few miles west of the park border, no one would hassle us. We did and were far from the only ones who did that. If we can't find a place to camp, can we do that on the Indian Reservations that surround OLP?
There are 5 of us so sleeping in our van is not what we want.
Thanks in advance for ANY advice.
