Established in 1910, the Eldorado hosts over 2.1 million visitors each year. The Forest offers a wide variety of recreational opportunities to the forest visitor looking to explore, seek out new adventures, or revisit old memories. With over 80 developed campgrounds and picnic areas, hundreds of miles of roads and trails, multiple large lakes and reservoirs, innumerable miles of rivers and streams, great scenery, and an abundance of plant and wildlife, visitors can find a place or activity to suit them.
Due to severe storm damage in November the Wrights Lake Campground and Day Use areas will not open until cleanup is completed. No reservations will be available for the 2014 season. When conditions allow, the area may be opened to day use, walk-in camping, or reservations. Check back for updated information.
