Desolation Wilderness is a protected parkland of virgin forest within the Tahoe Basin and El Dorado County. Spanning nearly 64,000 acres, the protected wilderness is home to numerous mountain lakes, old growth forests and stunning granite peaks, spires and teetering boulders that lend to the natural landscape of eye candy. There are various places to camp that are interlinked by beautiful single track trails that are host only to feet. To protect this special part of the world, no mechanical apparatus such as bikes, motorcycles or off-road autos are allowed. Campers, hikers and horseback riders must obtain a permit before venturing out into Desolation Wilderness. Permits can be obtained online or at ranger stations.
