Porcupine Flat Campground (37°48.45′N 119°33.904′W), 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, 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.


The nearest store is at White Wolf which is approximately a 14-minute drive. The drive to the Tuolumne Meadows store is about 20 minutes. The drive to Yosemite Valley will take more than 50 minutes.

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.
