Overview

Pines Group Site is conveniently located at the Stony Gorge Dam, just 18 miles downstream from East Park Dam. The area is complete with views of the Stony Gorge Reservoir and the scenic hills beyond. There's plenty of open space to throw a ball around, stroll, and explore the area's wildflowers. Plus the warm-water fishery is huge draw for avid fishermen.

Natural Features:

Pines Group Site is set on the northwest tip of the reservoir along 18 miles of lake shoreline. The area is part of the foothills beside the Mendocino National Forest, which straddles the Coastal Mountain Range.

Recreation:

All water sports are highly recommended at this campground. Fishing includes Texan largemouth and smallmouth bass, a strain that matures faster than average -- it's not uncommon to catch fish that are 10 to 12 pounds. Swimming in the warm, refreshing waters is also popular.

Facilities:

A boat launch is located 1 mile from the campsite, and the group area is ideal for swimming. Picnic tables are dispersed so that some are shaded by trees, while others capture the warm sun. The camping area has a stone fire pit and a large brick barbecue.

Nearby Attractions:

Hike the Red Mountain Trail for 360-degree views of Black Butte Lake, Lassen Peak, and Mount Shasta. Don't miss out on a scenic drive through the Mendocino Forest either.
