Tioga Lake Campground is a first come, first serve small campground beside the high elevation Tioga Lake just outside of the Yosemite National Park eastern entrance gate. 

The campground is basic, with 12 sites. Parking is in pull-in spots around the center road, and campers walk from the parking area to their sites. Sites 6-8 sit beside the lake. The campground host has firewood bundles available for sale. One double vault toilet serves the campground - there are no showers and no running water available at the campground.

Reservations are not available, and the campground is often full during the tourist season. 

The Forest Service has a 14 day limit on stays. 

Highway 120 closes with the first snow each winter and stays close until conditions warm up again.
