“Could use a little TLC”

Reviewed May 09, 2019

Overall Rating

Two campgrounds: tent sites with no hookups and an RV Loop with electric. We chose the latter since we are having problems with our solar. Several sites are not open due to damage (storms, vandalism, not sure why) and the ones that are open could still use a little sprucing up. We were in site 112 which had the advantage of shade from ... more

“Amazing hiking, great campground ”

Reviewed Feb 16, 2019

Overall Rating

Pinnacles is an amazing park with great hiking. The campground is situated among the bushes which offers some privacy. The bathrooms were clean. Only annoying thing was the campers who pulled up late and set up directly across from me and constantly shined their headlights directly into my camp, I couldn’t sleep and it totally blinded... more

“No generators!”

Reviewed Feb 01, 2019

Overall Rating

We were shocked to discover that generators are not allowed in this campground! We hadn't reserved a site with hookups, so this was a big problem for us in our trailer. We spotted wild turkeys and a coyote in the campground. Campground is situated very close to the visitor center/store/pool/showers.

“Nice area. Park needs some TLC. ”

Reviewed Jan 04, 2019

Overall Rating

December camping is iffy. Cold, but sunny. Hiking trails not overly crowded early in day, lots fill up in late morning. No shuttle in winter to trail heads. Condors, falcons and many moles and ground squirrels call this home. Bathrooms functional. Pay showers. Site reasonably level. Absolutely no AT&T or Verizon cell service wh... more

“Awesome park, crappy campground”

Reviewed Nov 30, 2018

Overall Rating

We absolutely loved the trails and the wildlife at Pinnacles National Park and would return in a minute to experience the dramatic condor-filled peaks and the fun caves. Unfortunately, the only realistic place to camp is within the park itself, on the eastern side, and for RVs the campground is in pretty bad shape. The one RV loop is b... more

“Good Enough”

Reviewed Sep 03, 2018

Overall Rating

The RV loop is small and some sites are better than others. We had site 89 which had a decent amount of privacy due to the site next to it being closed because of worries about falling trees. At least 3 sites were closed due to tree danger. The sites have electric only. There is a water fill station in the RV loop but the dump stat... more

“Great spot from which to explore the rest of the park!”

Reviewed Jun 13, 2018

Overall Rating

We had site 120, which was the last one in that row. Private, easy access to the Bench trail. Our 4 year old enjoyed the pool, our dogs enjoyed walking down the bench trail (until we hit the "no pets sign " half a mile later). Very hot in June, but evening walks were pleasant. Used the dump station on our way out. Enjoyed the 30amp ele... more

“Fantastic location to explore Pinnacles National Park! Walk to the visitor’s center, hop on a shuttle, hike a trail – all from the campground. ”

Reviewed May 01, 2018

Overall Rating

The Pinnacles Campground has several loops with tent and group sites and one RV loop. The hook-up sites have 30amp electric and there is a dump and water fill up stations, but no sewer or water at individual sites. The sites are dirt/gravel and the RV loop has some serious pot holes so take it slow. There are mature trees that provide ... more

I originally was going to stay in a standard site with my Class C RV and tow car. Even though the description made is sound like it would be long enough, a majority of the standard sites are too short for most RV's The standard sites are dirt/gravel and most are not level. The road through the standard sites is paved buy very narrow an... more

“Beautiful Caves”

Reviewed Jul 21, 2017

Loved our stay at Pinnacles Campground. It was super hot while we were there, but no surprise for the middle of July. We lucked out with site #26 and it's huge oak tree that shaded our site. We brought 2 E-Z Ups and that was a great help. The pool was so refreshing, all the staff was very friendly, restrooms kept clean. The only thing,... more
