If you’re staying on the western side of the Sierra’s check out Millerton Lake SCG http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=587 outside of Friant (just northeast of Fresno). I’ve stopped and camped here many times and it’s one of my favorites. A little pricy…(thanks allot CA) but really worth it. Campsites are right on the lake with big boulders to sit on and this time of year would be much less crowded.
