Lake Vernon is located in the Tiltill Valley in the northern sector of Yosemite National Park just north of Hetch Hetchy Valley at coord|38|00|49|N|119|43|26|W|region:US-CA_type:waterbody. The surface elevation of the lake is Convert|6568|ft|m|0|abbr=on. Due to the remote location of the lake it is usually only accessed as a backpacking destination. The area surrounding the lake was once home to a band of Sierra Miwok Indians, and numerous artifacts can be found in the area. Lake Vernon is the source of Falls Creek, which feeds Wapama Falls.
