Hetch Hetchy Reservoir Camping?

Me and my friend want to go camping to the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir. It's the first time we'll go and we don't have much information about it. Where can I read more about it?

Hetch Hetchy Reservoir has spectacular scenery and is the starting point for trips along many backcountry trails. Visitors can walk along the top of O'Shaughnessy Dam and see cliffs and waterfalls. The Hetch Hetchy Reservoir is located 40 miles from Yosemite Valley via Highway 120 and the Evergreen and Hetch Hetchy Roads. The top of the dam is at an elevation (altitude) of 3,800 feet (1160m) above sea level.

Camping at Hetch Hetchy is limited to a backpackers' campground; a obviously a wilderness permit is required. See Yosemite Wilderness for information about wilderness travel. Lodging near Hetch Hetchy is available outside Yosemite National Park's borders.
