We came across this ”little thing” while camping this weekend at a lake in central CA. It almost crawled on my brothers foot sitting around the camp. We managed to catch it to show the kids but it had escaped by morning. I think it’s some type of wolf spider but I can’t seem to match it. Any insight? Thanks for your help.
This is a beautiful Wolf Spider, and most likely a female, but we are not certain of the species.

It’s a hybrid!
Could be poisonous!
I feel quite confident that is Schizocosa mccooki
Thank you for providing that identification. We are linking to an image from California that is posted to BugGuide.
