Lake Eleanor and Kibbie Lake might also be decent options. But the dam gate is closed as the road is out. Snow is all gone, however. There are bear lockers at the designated campsites at Eleanor.

Well it was tempting to just do it (Desolation Wilderness) as it was chosen to be not too far from the car, but
as it was I'm glad we didn't go as it sounds like there was a mud slide on hwy 50 Friday morning when we would
have driven up and some drizzle, and then snow in parts of the Sierras over the weekend.

As it was, Henry Coe State Park worked out great - entered from the East Entrance and didn't see anyone on Sat
and did a nice series of I guess rolling hills which was a good warm up. Very pleasant temps. Thanks again for advice.
