Excellent backcountry campsites are available along the John Muir Trail just beyond the junction with the Half Dome trail, about 500 yards east along a dusty, exposed, and noticeably east-west section. Look at the exposed and sandy areas just south (and below). Water is available a few hundred yards to the east, at the junction with Clouds Rest trail.
