Porcupine Flat Campground
Porcupine Flat Campground (Coordinates: ), located in northern area of Yosemite National Park along Tioga Road (HWY 120), is a first-come first-served campground outside of Yosemite Valley. This campground is very remote[dubious ], very quiet, and very unpopulated relative to other campgrounds in Yosemite. The campground is directly off the road and thus does not require a rough drive to the campground like other Yosemite campgrounds outside of the Valley (Yosemite Creek and Tamarack Flat are examples 2-4 mile unpaved roads leading into the campground off the main road). Porcupine Flat is directly along a branch of Snow Creek and therefore many of the sites inside the campground are directly alongside a running creek. Those looking to stay away from crowds/noise should consider this campground. The sites are very green and shaded by the trees in the area. Deer are often seen grazing in the campground.
Each campsite contains a fire ring, picnic table, and food locker, and is near a vault toilet. Stream water must be treated (by boiling, using a filter, or using iodine). No potable water available. Pets are not permitted.
