Sharing campsites in Toulumne Meadows

My girlfriend and I are heading to Toulumne on Tuesday the 4th of September.
We are coming from the UK and trying to do research on the net about camping, it seems that in the camp ground the sites are for 6 people, is it common to share a site with others that you meet on the spot? Or is there somewhere to get in contact with other people wanting to share sites to share the costs out?
Any information on this would be much appreciated

Thanks

It is very common. If you set up your own camp, people will come to you.

You might want to pose this question over at SuperTopo where there is much more knowledge of Toulumne Meadows and the camping there.

It is common, though the rangers at the gate kiosk discourage the practice.

Each site only has one bear box. When I'm on a road trip, I find I can nearly fill a bear box myself. That probably means I carry too much food and kitchen gear. If you are flying from the UK you will be fine with one bear box, but sharing it with four other people might be tight.
