I just got off the phone with Inyo national forest. They say that I would need an additional permit if I plan to spend a night in the Tyee Lakes area the night prior to my entry at Piute Pass. Apparently the road walk to North Lakes means that this would be treated as two separate trips rather than one.

Hi Rnagarajan,

This makes sense. When you enter on different trailhead than what your permit
indicates than yes you will need a new permit, especially if sleeping overnight at Tyee.
You may try to hitch a ride to North Lake from South Lake (offer some gas money)
and don't get to South Lake to late in the day, you may get lucky.

Anyone have suggestion of where one can reserve (not first come first serve) camping near trailhead? Looking for 1-2 nights at elevation prior to setting off.

Sambieni,

https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/inyo/recreation/camping-cabins/recarea/?recid=20234&actid=29

This is a list of local campgrounds, some are group only and only some are reservable. The actual booking needs to be done on the Recreation,gov website.

Thanks. I have seen those and appears all are non-reservable, first-come, first-serve. Still leaves me the same place. What is one to do on holiday or August weekend when you need a campsite and not a local, thus you're hauling in around 8-9 pm post-work hoping on a wish and prayer?
