Overview

Overview

Pinecrest features a large campground by Pinecrest Lake, just 30 miles east of Sonora. The area includes a day-use beach and a marina, a small shopping center and recreation cabins.

The campground caters to all ages and is within walking distance of the lake, an amphitheater, visitor center, swimming beach and spectacular hiking trails.

Natural Features:

Many campsites are shaded by trees and sit near the southwest side of the 300-acre Pinecrest Lake in Stanislaus National Forest. In this beautiful mountain landscape, wildlife viewing opportunities include marmots, squirrels, coyotes and deer.

Stanislaus National Forest is situated in the central Sierra Nevada Mountains, between Lake Tahoe and Yosemite. The area boasts gorgeous views of snow-capped mountain peaks and California's Great Central Valley.

Recreation:

The Pinecrest Lake National Recreation Trail takes hikers on an easy 4-mile stroll around Pinecrest Lake. Rainbow trout is a common catch in the lake and swimming is enjoyed at the sandy beach.

Educational programs are also a highlight of the recreation area. Bike rentals are on hand so campers can bike around the lake.

Facilities:

Amenities for each site includes a paved parking pad, picnic table and campfire ring. Drinking water is handy and restrooms have flush toilets, sinks and a utility sink. No RV hookups area available but there is a dump station.

Nearby Attractions:

Sonora Pass, a scenic winding highway that has guided people across the Sierra Nevada since 1852, is located nearby.
