Wrights Lake Campground

El Dorado National Forest, California

This is a day-hiker’s fantasyland, with relatively easy access to the southern Desolation Wilderness (permit required), which means you’re on the trail to pristine spots while others are still on the road. Bring a canoe—the glassy lake is release-your-inner-Hiawatha awesome.
