The 2020 limited opening of Eldorado NF after all CA-NF’s closed because of fire danger only allowed this “Dispersed Camping” area to open. Feeling the need for a mountain fix, we landed here.
There is the rubble from the ski area that closed down in 1993. (see pictures. Lots of flat areas with amazing views. There are the tourists who walk and climb what is left of the infrastructure. Woke up Saturday morning to a few deer hunting crews. Besides that this time of year is peaceful, cool, and a great place to hangout and explore lakes and the NF.

lots of areas to find some shade in normal times. A rough road leads down slope where a small trailer went.

There are 3 escape routes off the mountain of there was to be the need. We confirmed all other boondocking areas are closed at the moment.

if you have a Verizon MIFI, you can snatch a 4G signal to stream etc.

The scenery is outstanding and it is very quite. There is a lot of debris from when the lifts operated but closed in 1995. The snow park still exists but operates from November 1st to May 30th.
You have access to numerous big lakes like Silver and Caples, also small ones like Woods. Fishing, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming close by at the lakes.
There are so many trails nearby from short ones to overnight hikes.
There is no water or other facilities. You need to be self contained. No tents.
The elevation here is 7345 feet.
In winter you need a snow park pass ??? according to a website.
Verizon coverage was poor but we have a booster and could stream movies. Numerous channels with an antenna.
