We went to Pinewood for our maiden voyage in a new hybrid TT. Because it was before the official camping season starts on May 1st the potable water was not on yet and we were able to reserve one of the Handicap sites right next to the lake to enjoy our first time out.

Each evening the elk came down from the hills to romp and play in the water across the lake, an osprey hunted, there were deer and turkeys wandering across the road behind us. There is a 3 mile walking trail that goes around the reservoir that is easy to walk and quite beautiful.

Restrooms are clean, as well as campground in general.

This is a popular fishing spot and there are many non-camping families who come up on weekends to picnic and fish. Evenings are quiet and serene with no cell service.

We really had our fingers crossed that there would be Verizon service here but there was not so we didn't stay.

However, this was a beautiful campground! We would definitely stay if we hadn't needed cell service. Some sites are along the water, some are up on the hill with beautiful views. There are areas the pups could have easily gotten into the water for some swim time. The area appeared to be well kept with electric sites available.

Be aware that the road up is curvy and rather steep but not undoable with a trailer. There were large trailers at the campground but as we were driving back down, one truck was definitely burning his brakes up with his 5th wheel! Yikes!

You need a daily county park pass to camp here which is available a few miles down the hill at the North entrance to Carson Lake where you can also check for first come sites if you don't make reservations ahead of time.
