Yeah, it's kind of a bummer you can't find it sort of specifically pointed out . . . if you're on the bus (or in a car) I think the stop is #18 . . . so you get off and there's a paved road that goes into the car-camp area at NP . . . you've also got the horse stables there on the right . . . just walk in on the access road, past the little check-in hut . . . past the bathrooms on the right (there's also a pay phone there) . . . then there's the volunteer camp supervisor or whatever you call them, just past the bathrooms . . . walk a little further and there are more bathrooms on the left . . . keep going ( say hello to the tent and motor home folks) and be looking for signage indicating the backpackers camp . . . you leave the road and shuffle through the woods for a few yards, cross a bridge and there you are . . . the drop box for payment is about ten yards in front of the bathrooms. bingo.bobhttp://www.summitpost.org/plans/view_activity.php?post_id=6480

Subject: [John Muir Trail] Where exactly in North Pines Campground is the backpacker's camp ?
I am aware that in Yosemite Valley, and with a backcountry permit one can stay in the North Pines "backpacker's campground" one night before and/or one night at the end of a trip. I also know that it costs $5 per person, which is paid to a box also in the "backpacker's camp." So where exactly is this camp? It would be helpful to know which "public / numbered" campsite it is across from or near in North Pines Campground.
