Located in Northeastern California in the stunning Sierra Nevada Mountains, the Eldorado Campgrounds will not disappoint. Whether you are traveling along Highway 88, Highway 50, or the Crystal Basin area, there is a place for you.
Campgrounds are open from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day Weekend. Some campgrounds remain open on a first come, first serve basis after Labor Day until September/October, weather and visitation permitting.
The Desolation Wilderness borders areas on the Eldorado NF offering a lot of hiking and ATV activities that can be accessed directly from some campgrounds. If that's not for you, the many lakes & rivers offer a relaxing backdrop and fresh air at the campground.
