    Overview

    Overview

    Dinkey Creek is spread out along the banks of its namesake creek in a thick forest of Ponderosa pines and cedars. The facility's high country setting with trees, streams and open space, make it a scenic destination for all types of visitors.

    Natural Features:

    The Sierra National Forest, located on the western slope of the central Sierra Nevada, is known for its spectacular mountain scenery and abundant natural resources.

    The terrain includes rolling, oak-covered foothills, heavily forested middle elevation slopes and the starkly beautiful alpine landscape of the High Sierra.

    Recreation:

    Dinkey Creek has 2 swimming areas: The Slicks and Honeymoon Pool, both of which contain pools carved out of granite. Anglers can fish Dinkey Creek for brown and rainbow trout.

    Hikers can walk the Dinkey Creek Trail. Mountain bikers also have trail access in this area.

    Facilities:

    There is a group site that can accommodate up to 50 people. The rest are a mix of standard or tent-only single sites.

    An on-site amphitheater offers educational programs on summer weekends. There is a picnic site located on large sandy flat above the creek at the north end of the campground.

    All sites have paved spurs, picnic tables and fire grills; accessible sites are available. Drinking water and both vault and flush toilets are provided.

    Nearby Attractions:

    McKinley Grove is 6 miles away. Famous for its giant Redwoods, the area offers leisurely hikes and picnicking opportunities.
