There is a campground at Merced Lake, and it is not a High Sierra campground.  You will still need to check in with the Backcountry office to obtain a permit for overnight stay of any kind in Yosemite National Park.  You can make reservations May through October, and I would recommend planning ahead if you have a specific location in mind to camp in.  For detailed information, click Have a pleasant trip!
