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. ”

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

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

This is a very beautiful park to go to. Go in the spring before the weather warms otherwise this will be very hot! Great and diverse types of hiking is available, so this place gets crowded in on the weekends. This is nice in that the shuttles run then so you do not have to drive to the main hiking trail heads. Sites are nicely ... more

“Good National Park campground”

Reviewed Feb 03, 2017

Overall Rating

For a National Park campground, this is one of the best. More space between sites then the bigger parks and still enough natural feelings to make it easy to breath. While the site itself was not level, I appreciate that the area was not a perfectly graded and manicured RV "resort". Our spot was right off the roadway, so not totally qui... more

We were transiting from the Central Coast to north of the Bay Area, and looking for a place to spend the night (Big Sur is impassable due to rock slides). Pinnacles was a great stop. We only spent the night, which was a shame. It's a beautiful setting and a decent campground. The sites are clean and large. If you want solitude, drive t... more

This is the only campground near Pinnacles National Park and is located on the east side. The roads leading to the campground are winding, narrow, and one lane each way, but ok as long as you don't actually go 55mph (posted speed limit). We ended up driving as slow as 20-25 on many sections in our motorhome. Most of the campground has ... more

The Pinnacles was a National Monument for many years and recently achieved National Park status. Since this happened it has become more crowded, but there has also been a lot of improvements made to the campground which used to be privately run. There is a $10 use fee to get in, that is not covered by your camping fee. The campground h... more
