The first campground after leaving Yosemite at Tioga Pass. You see the lake pretty much when you leave the park, and the campground is near where the lake level used to be before climate change and the LA Water Authority stole all the water. There is a spectacular view up the valley and some way down the valley.

It was full at 5:30 on a September Monday,

Most of the sites are paired up, their two parking places together then separate paths to the picnic table and tent area for each. Not the greatest for van living, although the parking spot net to #2 is good.

Finally, I score a site here! It's about a week before Fall Color madness, and I got here about 3:30, and three out of the ten sites are open. I scored the one in the edge, so I have van-door privacy, so I'm pretty happy.
