Trying to plan a trip to Sequoia and Yosemite NP area end of June.

Does such a thing exist in the area: a 2 night backpacking camping circuit with GREAT views and that passes by flushing (or composting) toilet and... running water ?!? (It might be nonsense)

It may be the condition for my girlfriend to try her first backpack trip (she does day-hike in mountains regularly however 5-6 miles 2000' typical).  We will be five in total

The only thing thing that I can think of off hand is the High Sierra Camps. If it is your girlfriends first trip you could stay in the HSC tent cabins and enjoy all they have to offer, not cheap but you have showers, flush toilets, and meals provided. As long as you have a wilderness permit you can stay in the backpackers camp for free and even pay for a home cooked style meal when they are available. June may be a little too early this year because of all the snow.

 Here is a link to the HSC site.

Sequoia NP Bearpaw Meadows.  B&B that they will pack you and your stuff to.  You spend a few days (or overnight there) day hiking into some spectacular scenery.  The trails below 11,000 feet might be snow free this year by first of July.
