Crazy to consider anything for camping on July 4th weekend? Want to car camp if possible (tent). Yosemite or Kings Canyon. Where do I start looking for best bets, if any.

Given that there is no weekend this year for the fourth, it might be easier. Just an FYI...we've NEVER had a problem finding a campsite during the week. We just get there early in the morning, and take what's available--which may be Hodgdon Meadow, Porcupine Flat, etc. Don't arrive Friday afternoon of a three day weekend and expect to find a site....but if you plan ahead, and arrive early in the day, you should be OK during the week.

Of course, you will now take my advice and get skunked! grin

If you want the valley, just log into the site everyday, all day long if you can and keep looking. Eventually you may see a cancellation.
