Meadowview Campground is situated in the Pinecrest Basin approximately one mile from the Pinecrest Lake Day Use Area and ½ mile off of Highway 108 and the Summit Ranger Station. Campers are welcome on a first-come, first-served basis. It has 100 camping sites, each of which has a metal stove/ fire pit and a table. Roads and parking areas, which vary in length, are paved. Water hydrants are located to serve several sites. All restrooms have flush toilets and sinks. This campground fills nightly on weekends and many weekdays between Memorial Day and Labor Day. It is recommended that you arrive early in the day if you plan to find an available site.
This place is barely worth the fee. Overall the grounds are neglected, bathrooms are sketchy, and sites are crammed together. Traffic noise from CA108 is also a bumr. But it is 5500' up in the beautiful Stanislaus National Forest, so it's got that going for it… 2.5/5
