If you really want to camp it up, backpacking into the desolation wilderness is allowed with a permit as well.

Have been coming here several times a year since 1992. If you really want to get away, keep driving on Ice House road past the campsites until you get to the end of the road. Unload your canoe and paddle in or hike in. It's open wilderness and hopefully, you won't see another soul for a hundred yards. You'll discover spots that adventurous souls have pitched their tents in the past. Just look for the fire rings. I've been hoarding this jem to myself for the last 25 years. Hopefully, another generation will discover the awesomeness of Loon Lake.
