Opting Outside for 4th of July

Where are folks going to get some sunshine and wilderness on the 4th?  I'll be testing my new Osprey Atmos 65 pack at a group site nere Alamere Falls.  Does anyone have good suggestions on camping or backpacking sites that aren't too crazy on holidays? I did Butano SP a couple years ago on Memorial Day and it wasn't as full as I expected... but maybe that's because it was 100 degrees that weekend.

North lake Tahoe is never too crowded, if you backpack in deep enough. There may be some snow leftover above 8000' right now though. The emigrant gap area is the same story.


I'm going for some hikes in the Columbia River Gorge! Have fun and hope you all get to Opt Outside
