Overview

Overview

Pines Group Campground attracts large families and groups friends with its convenient location, just 15 miles from the Yosemite National Park boundary in northern California. It is an ideal base camp for visitors to explore not only Yosemite, but also the fantastic wilderness areas within Stanislaus National Forest, including Carson-Iceberg, Emigrant and Mokelumne Wildernesses.

Natural Features:

The tranquil campground sits at an elevation of 3,200 feet, in a mixed conifer forest with ample shade at each campsite. The Tuolumne River is nearby, which flows for 150 mies from the central Sierra Nevada to the San Joaquin River.

Winter sports are very popular in the area as well. Dodge Ridge, Bear Valley and Badger Pass Ski Areas offer a variety of winter activities.
