    Overview

    Pines Group Site is conveniently located at the Stony Gorge Dam, just 18 miles downstream from East Park Dam and 5 miles west of Fruto in western Glenn county. Stony Gorge Dam, Orland Project, was completed in 1928 and is a concrete slab and buttress structure with a height of 139 feet and a crest length of 868 feet. The group campsite area is complete with views of the Stony Gorge Reservoir and the scenic hills beyond. There's plenty of open space to throw a ball around, stroll, and explore the area's wildflowers. Plus the warm-water fishery with an 18-mile shoreline is huge draw for avid fishermen.
