A place to let loose and get close to nature. Lots of eco-tourist activities along with a great place at South Lake Tahoe to enjoy restaurants and clubs.

High altitude camping at Loon Lake, canoeing on Wright's lake with kids, have a group there is plenty of room at Wench Creek. You can camp on a creek, lake, or deep in the forest. Easy to reach waterfalls, a wide range of hiking trails, and mountain peaks you can reach in an hour. Stopping at any one of the ranger stations is worth the effort as there are so many hidden treasures in this wide ranging Forest.

Because of the species and height, the trees are still green in summer. Compared with nearby areas, it looks much greener, and the forest, combined with the mountains, makes good views. For some part of it, the traffic and road condition are not hard. There are also several attractions close to it, which one can visit during the same trip.

The forest lies east of Placerville, from foothill area to the mountains and the Lake Tahoe Basin. Activities include camping, hiking, fishing, 4-wheeling, snow activities in winter, etc. Suggest contacting the main office in Placerville to determine if there are any restrictions in area and to obtain map.
