Interestingly, I was born about an hour from JT and now live just a couple hours from it, but haven't visited it since I was a kid (a long time ago). Have the RV in shape now and want to do a few mid-week trips with my telescope in the next few months, probably solo, but have family not far from there that I'd like to invite to come by as well, if they wish. Been searching campgrounds, and see that some free BLM land might be adequate for what I intend (outside the park). It seems the in-park campgrounds are first-come, no resos, so is the typical routine to just cruise the park looking for a spot, then use BLM land if none can be found? Also if anyone has recommendations for campgrounds inside the park for a 28' class C (it seems that some cater to tents and van conversions etc). I would enjoy doing some light loop hiking as well. Won't be taking a toad for now, so it would be ideal to camp inside where I can explore on foot, the stargaze at night!
