if you were able to get a walk in at TM,
what days , times, duration, sites you were given , and how full it was at time of your stay.
any other details that may be important.
was curious of any information due to the late opening.
thank you

It's not going to help much. 50% of the campground is left for walk ins, and there's no predicting how long a camper stays in their campsite. Generally, weekends are the busiest, midweek is less busy.

When going for a walk in we arrive at 5 am and get in line, particularly if it's Friday or Saturday. We are issued numbers when we get to the desk and told come back at 2 after the day's checkouts. And then we come back, and even though we've been #15, or #25, or whatever, we usually get a site because no one seems to want to wait around til 2.

Of course, it's been several orders of magnitude busier than ever before this year -- so I've not been even bothering. We're going to Kings Canyon instead, and Sequoia National Forest, and Sierra National Forest. Granite domes, peaks, great big lakes full of fish, and no lines.
