I stayed in the Azalea campground in October of 2008. I arrived late at night on a weekday and was surprised to see that hardly anyone else was in the whole campground! On one loop, there was only one RV, so I pitched my tent one of the other spots on that loop.
Since there was no one else within 150 feet of me, I had plenty of privacy and didn't worry that my snoring was too loud. Campground is close to Grant Village, so you have access to groceries and showers. Some of the places in the park that offer showers close around 6 pm, so you may have to adjust your schedule.
Did not see any bears in the campground, but saw several on the park trails. They ignored the people around them.
This park is a great, uncrowded alternative to Yosemite. So is Lassen.
