Sunrise Mountain Sports in Livermore (just east of Dublin) is your best bet. http://www.sunrisemountainsports.com

I once camped on the JMT-PCT a few miles south of Donahue Pass at the tree line. Beautiful view looking east. Don't know if it is still allowed.

+1 on the views looking east. Awesome.
As you descend from Donahue, there is a "basin" with several small lakes. There are several campsites there. My son and I camped there a few years ago. As long as you abide by the rules (100 ft. away from water, etc), you should be fine.

We're planning to camp in that vicinity on our JMT through hike this summer, and it looks like it'll be great. Lots of mossies down lower (by the trail junction to Gem lake, etc.).
