Reserve your site months ahead. Bring the kids, because Wrights Lake Campground is perfect for kids of all ages. The lake is clean and warm, ideal for swimming off the rocks and shore, or from canoes and small inflatables on the water. This is a made-to-order movie set for a coming-of-age film. The campground is small and intimate. For once the tentonly sites get the best real estate—down by the lake— while the RVers are off on the other side of the dam. The sites are private, with boulders and coppices of pines blocking them from one another. The plateau area that Wrights Lake occupies is sylvan and warm, with crisscrossing streams—more meadow than the harsher oceans of granite farther south toward Yosemite.
