It was a great overnight stop for us on our way to Yosemite. No AT&T cell service. Can get 1 hr of free wifi every 24hrs or pay for more wifi. The park is huge with a lot to do and different camping accommodations for all types. Easy asphalt roads throughout campground in the pines. Sites are…
It’s best in the spring and fall. It’s nice and quiet and the spots are not too close to each other. Staff is nice and grounds are clean.
More hook up locations for RV sites (50% are on wrong side).
Our site was so small we couldn’t fit in our vehicle after parking the 22’ trailer even though it’s “rated” for 30’ vehicles + 2 cars
Good general location and reasonable access to water
No laundry on site
My experience has always been good ones for the few times I’ve been there. Always a good time with friends and also the rangers checking. Clean bathrooms and also the spots to camp.

Pinecrest was an amazing place at the edge of the Stanislaus national forest. The community is great, the campground and bathrooms were very well maintained. It was a 10min walk to the lake. If you’re into fishing, there are trout in the area with some nice fishing spots labeled on the paper map.…
The area is nice, it is not near the lake but the lake is only a small drive away. The place is crowded and they pack you in here, but our site (113) was a nice place in the corner. There are much better sites with more room near the dog park if you are looking for more space.
Our family has been here many times because it’s tradition since my husband was a kid. It’s gorgeous if we’ve had a year of rain. Usually pretty quiet but bathrooms are always a disaster.
Well maintained campgrounds, level and plenty of space for our 35 ft trailer and truck. Close to the water and trails. Overall very nice and will definitely return.
Easy to see right off the road with plenty of campsites down either side of a nice dirt road. Rocky and steep road access to Scott’s lake, but easy camping on the edge of the valley.

I was worried about our pop up camper not being able to fit in the “tent only sites”, but it ended up being perfect.
The sun shade provided in the tent sites came in handy when we had a short moment of rain. It was also much appreciated during the sunny weather.
Beautiful view of the river but…
Love this campground because of it’s close proximity to the Stanislaus River. There are 28 first come first serve RV and Tent sites. There are interesting granite rock formations in and around the campground. Potable water, fire rings, picnic tables and garbage receptacles round out the…

Would have been great but, closed until June. Just drive down ice house road you will find lots of dispersed free camping. No fire pits. Pack your stuff away please! Lots of broken glass in some pull off spots off of bassi falls road. Be careful!
Beautiful day use area. Very close to the sweet water camp ground. Nice waterfall and swimming area.
Remember to pack out trash. There was a lot of trash when there is trash cans right in the parking lot)-:
Very close to the national park. Does not take reservations so you might have to get there early. The camp host was very sweet. Camp ground was $24 a night. Large sites for tents. Only thing I would complain about is it’s very close to the highway. Ask really cool watering hole about 5 mins down…
Nice campground with numerous RV and tent sites. Bathroom with flush toilets and showers. Big trees provide ample shade. Quiet area close to the amenities of the Carson Valley.
