“Nice views and great hikes nearby ”
Mt. Pinos campground was a lovely spot to get out of the city for a couple nights.
The view from campsites along the southern edge is outstanding and there are enough trees near almost all the sites that you get some shade.
The hike to the top of Mt. Pinos is close by and has beautiful views.
A mountain bike trailhead is right next to two of the sites, (between sites 9 and 8 maybe?) that looked like it would have been annoying in the morning as the MTB bros rolled through en masse with the bells on their bikes.
Fortunately, at site 11, the annoyance was minimal and the campsite overall was pretty quiet even though there were a ton of kids and families over the weekend.
Take note that there is no drinkable water thanks to rusted pipes. The site has vault toilets that were fine on Friday night but absolutely disgusting by Saturday thanks to the other campers.
There is a dumpster, which you'd think folks would use, but I still saw a lot of random trash around on Sunday morning.
The campground is dog friendly, which was nice except for the one group that had their golden retriever off leash and was running into other sites.
I don't blame the campground for the poor behavior of others. Overall, I really liked the campground but it's probably better mid-week than on the weekend.
