Rear wheel play

I noticed my rear wheel has some lateral play in it so I took out the axle and cleaned and re-lubed everything. The only way I can get the wheel to have no lateral play when the quick release is clamped down, is to tighten the axle so tight that it has resistance when spinning by hand. I cannot seem to find the happy medium of free spinning and no wobble and I have tried everything. Any thoughts on how to fix this or why it is doing this?
