Tired of the crowds? The Lookout Tower area offers a nice reprieve from the throngs that invade Boulder Basin or the Visor Area. Relatively easy to find, the problems here are of respectable height, but are not completely off the deck.
Follow the signs to Boulder Basin Campground. At the entrance to the campgrounds by the campground bulletin board, there will be a left turn up a dirt hill (right turn takes you to the campsites). Park your car in the vicinity - you have two options at this point: 1) pay for the $10 dollars for a campsite 2) display an adventure pass and park such that you are not blocking any roads / cars. Parking IS limited.
