Campground is located at Ellery Lake east of Tioga pass, the east entrance of Yosemite National Park. Elevation is 9500 feet. Campground has 12 campsites. Some sites can accommodate vehicles up to 28 ft. Many sites do not have room to park a second vehicle. 14 day stay limit. Each campsite has a locker for food storage. This is bear country, please store food properly and don't feed the bears.
Just outside Yosemite to the northeast, Ellery sits next to a beautiful snow fed lake that is stocked with fish. There are about 20 first come first serve sites in this camp ground with pit toilets and water pumps. This is a popular basic campground because of the access to fishing, trailheads, and of course Yosemite. The campground is clean and well maintained. Each site has a bear box, picnic table, and fire pit, and some sites have really nice tent pads (but not all sites). The vault toilets are clean if not basic.
