Flat Site in a Beautiful Area, But RV Noise

I snagged a last-minute cancelation in Pinnacles during peak time in May. We were in site 82 of Loop D, which is the RV area. The campground recently renumbered its sites, so that can be confusing if you're researching sites.

Very open and flat. We pitched out tent where you'd normally park…

  • View from hike above campground.
  • Our campsite. Very flat. Shade provided by one big tree next to the site, so in midday, this is hot and sunny. This is the land of RV's in this loop, but we also knew that going into it.

Very RV park feeling

I stayed in the RV loop and did not enjoy my time there. The sites had no private cu and were crammed in together, most people seems to be there to party and the bathrooms were far and gross.

Long walk to the toilets

I love this park so much! But the campground is privately run and I have mixed feelings about it.

There are over 100 sites, but only 3 bathrooms (they do have flush toilets and running water) so its a long walk. My child is not quite independent enough to make that walk on her own without getting…

I didn't stay. Can't believe it has 5 stars!

I guess if you stayed on the water it might be nice but the campground itself was pretty bad. 1st they have blocked any phone signal so even with my WeBoost I could not work from here. 2nd the flies were horrible. 3rd my site was across from overflowing trash can. 4th the hookups are on the wrong…

Very windy

I don’t know how often it happens but the night was very windy. We might have been unlucky but I saw so many trees lean the same angle, meaning the valley could be the path of wind and tend to blow strong. If you plan to camp, not RV, watch out!

Great free spot

For anyone visiting Pinnacles, this is a great place to stay nearby. We were there on a weekend and all the spots were taken so we walked in with our tents and set up off the hiking road. The views were great and there are lots of things to explore!

Easy and accessible

This campground was super convenient when staying at Pinnacles for a couple days. You can’t really get anything same day so be sure to book in advance! We stayed outside of the park the first night and here the next. Amazing to see condors from our site. Great hiking close by!

Awesome primitive camping

This is a primitive campground, no showers only vault toilets and restroom near visitor center ( 2 min walk from campground) both decently clean. Water for washing dishes is available. Spots are not close to each other so there is privacy. It is small, quiet, surrounded with beautiful views. Good…

Convenient, shady respite

Easy on/off from Hwy. 99. Nice management. Spaces large and lots of shade coverage. Close to hwy but far enough that road noise isn't onerous. Train passes through once at night time, bring earplugs. Clean, tidy, well kept campground.

Little bit of green along the river

Probably COVID related but this park is under utilized and under attended. The shower is of if you throw in quarters and close your eyes. It could use some TLC but was a quite place to stop for the night.

Not all spots have shade.

Awesome hikes nearby

Easy shuttle ride from some awesome hikes. Our site was near a creek with standing water and hence some mosquitos and stinky because of proximity to the bathroom. Good shade and a solid NP campground option.

Great park & campground

Great park with trails that vary from flat oak meadows with wildflowers to strenuous mountain hikes to canyon creeks & caves. Parking inside the park fills up early (by 8am) so get there early or you’ll have to start your hike from the big lot at the visitor center and add a few miles.

O’Neil Forebay Waterfront

We stayed in site 6 which was right on the water. Beautiful views and plenty of space between sites. Pretty busy on weekends but that’s typical this time of year. Water/Electric hook ups. No showers (we are self contained so it was perfectly fine for our 7 night stay) camp host was very nice and…

Large space but make a reservation before going

Beautiful, Magnificent ... But No Camping

YOU CANNOT CAMP HERE. However, this gorgeous state park has dozens of beautiful trails winding through cattle country and down along streams and ponds in the Dinosaur Point area.

NO WATER. Note that there is no safe potable water at the park, so if you're hiking, bring plenty to drink.
