Parking outside Yosemite Entrance ?

Postby intrek38 » Mon Jul 04, 2011 6:43 am

I'll be meeting up with some friends at Elery or Tioga Lake campground outside the east entrance to Yosemite this August. Were trying to avoid paying the $20 entrance fee twice and just hoping to park one of our cars outside the park for a week. Does anyone know if there is any parking allowed outside the gate or nearby? Thanks..

There is trailhead parking at Saddlebag Lake. The trailhead is on Hoover Wilderness. I do not recall that you need any pass that you would have to put on the windshield.
