Wrights Lake Campgrounds

At 7000 feet in elevation, this facility is situated in the timber belt close to the lake shore and looks up at the majestic rocky peaks of the Sierra Nevadas and Desolation Wilderness. The area is well-known for its hiking, wildflowers, and bird life. In a normal snow year, the season generally runs from early July to mid-October. Other opportunities in the area are amphitheater programs, mountain biking, horse camping, four- wheel driving on Barrett Lake Jeep trail (late July), and fishing. Wilderness permits are required for both day hiking (available at the trailhead) and overnight (available at Pacific Ranger Station).

Motor boats (including electric motors) are not allowed on this lake, so bring your canoe, raft or waders. A canoe dock makes accessing your canoe easier. A camp attendant is available from 8 am to 4:30 pm. Extra parking is limited. Firewood can be gathered in the area. For local information, call the Eldorado Information Center at 530-644-6048.

Reservations must be made at least 7 days in advance. Equestrian sites must have at least one horse per site in order to occupy the site. Horses are only allowed in the equestrian loop. No motor boats (gas or electric) allowed on the lake. Fee includes 2 vehicles per site for family sites, and 4 vehicles per site for double sites and equestrian sites. An extra vehicle fee will be collected at the campground. Tent trailers are not allowed in the tent loop. Pets allowed but must be on a leash at all times while in the campground. No refunds for bad weather.
