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.

Lake San Antonio

I love this lake it has something for everyone. Like swimming, boating, camping, going on a picnic, and fishing in some areas. I would consider this one of the best campsites I’ve been to

Nothing fancy, just right

Quick overnight stop on our way south. Disappointed to see that dogs aren’t allowed in the beach. This coastline is an environment sanctuary. Giving this four stars because spot was really nose down even with blocks on the front tires. Camp ranger was nice. Strict with the dog rules but nice…

Clean and quiet

It’s a beautiful area that’s great for family camping. The cell phone reception is bad, the closer you are to the host site the better the reception

A little tight but worth it

Cute campsite right against the river. Fun for everyone especially the dogs. This time of the year the spaces next to the water are very shaded. Sunny across the street. Walked a trail to a nice bistro where we found some craft beer, cheese plate and fries. Delicious. Super friendly everywhere. We…

Unbelievable Spot

My wife and I found this spot on our Honeymoon. Dispersed camping all along the trail, despite a sign saying no car camping. It was a 45 min (6 mile) trip up a dirt road but boy was it worth it. The trail continued toward a campsite, but we found a spot that we couldn’t pass up (see pics). We were…

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.

Cold NorCal Beach

The beach is socked in with mist even on sunny days most of the year. Little ones might not like the 1 mile flat hike in, but it’s easy and feels very short on the way out. There is a fee but it’s waived if you are staying at pfieffer state park. You do need to cross a small river (knee deep in…

Unique, no-frills campground close to Monterey

I had my doubts trying this campground out.  Right next to a race track? No potable water?  But it turns out my doubts were unfounded.  My daughter and I had a great time here!  A short list of things we liked and things we didn't.

Pros:

- Beautiful views!  Not every site has them, but most…

  • Playground and view of the racetrack
  • Porta Potties closer to the site than the walk to the bathroom
  • I was assigned one of these sites first.  These are really trailer sites and SOOOO close together.  I asked for a change and they accommodated.

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…

Beautiful and quiet

Went to tent camp at site #14 (close to the bathrooms and showers) last week. I booked online in advance and arrived a little before check in. Checked in and found the camp hosts to be so helpful and nice. They also have ice, water, firewood and other items available for purchase. Stayed for about…

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!

Magical

This was such a beautiful campsite! The entire area was huge, plenty of gorgeous hikes in and around the camps. Dogs had to be on leash the entire time and on paved areas only, and are not allowed on any stage park trails in the area, making it difficult to really explore if you have your doggos.…
