looking for good tent camping spot in Sequoia NP, no reserve

We are planning on tent camping in Sequoia NP for a week starting Aug 5th. It's too late to make a reservation. I'd like a campground that is at least 4000 feet, has a tent only area (so we are not squeezed between RVs) and has flush toliets (can live without showers). Has anyone gobe through the same search with success?

In my opinion, the best first-come, first-serve campground in Sequoia is Cold Springs Campground. But, be aware that this campground is in the Mineral King area of Sequoia (not to be confused with Kings Canyon), so its not near the typical tourist spots. If this is your first time to Sequoia, you might want to be in the "main" part of the park. The campground is up a long, windy road which keeps out the big RVs. The campground is nestled along a river and very near the trailhead to a ton of great hikes.
