Ellery Lake Campground
Ellery Lake Campground is on the western shore of Ellery Lake, immediately off Highway 120 (Tioga Road) leading east out of Yosemite National Park. The small campground is popular with anglers and also with those who enjoy the majestic beauty of the surrounding mountains. Nearby Mount Dana rises to 13,000 feet. Ellery Lake is along the course of Lee Vining Creek, an attractive fishing stream. Below the lake are a series of falls as the creek plunges down the canyon.
Ellery Lake Campground has 21 campsites which can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. None of the sites have lake views. These first-come, first-served sites fill up at peak summer times when campsites are difficult to find inside Yosemite. Campers should be diligent about keeping freshly caught fish and other food safely inside the bear-proof storage lockers.
