Huntington lake has lots of sites. Courtright lake @ the S.E. side of the Dusy/Ershim trail has some cool primitive lake side spots. (if you have a 4x4) Typically, I prefer the higher elevations.

Haven't been up there in years, that place is a playground!

I've always enjoyed backpacking in the Desolation Wilderness

I love that area. We took our Manx off-roading in Mammoth and made a side trip to "Seven Lakes" area at the end of the road you mentioned. The hike to/and past Chicken Foot Lake is fabulous.

Kern River, Ant Canyon. Thats the only place worth camping. Sand beach on the river. Non developed camp ground so you dont have to deal with other ppl. Fishing is good, and you can camp as close to the river as your dare. It is right of sierra way a few miles past the bait shop.

Places off Rock Creek Road are nice, if you like "dry" camping. Fresno Dome is also a nice place to camp.

When I lived in Redding I enjoyed some great hiking trails in the Shasta-trinity area immediately around Wiskeytown lake. The best is to go to Brandy creek and then follow the access roads up the creek from the picnic area towards the Waterfalls... Plenty of camping, swimming, or whatever you want....
