“Great Campground in America's Newest National Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Pinnacles. We stayed in the RV loop where the sites are spread out nicely and each site has electrical hookups. The weather was perfect. We hiked and watched the rock climbers. Even saw condors soaring high up on the ridge tops! We arrived in the early afternoon and had no problems checking in. However, later in the day the camp store had a very long line of people waiting. It seems like they need to work out some organizational issues. The rangers we not busy, but the clerk was overwhelmed. We will definitely come back here.

You have to get an account with Recreation.gov to book at Pinnacles. It is really the only place to stay if you are going to hike multiple days. It's not too bad during the week in the early Spring. Before Easter there was no problem on the weekend, either. It appears to be extremely family friendly--if I had small children I might rate it even higher.

We were awakened by coyotes, but we didn't see any feral pigs, and we were close enough to the bathrooms. There is a drive, or a several mile hike to the main trailheads on the East Side.

It was very clean and quiet, but we were the only campers in Loop A.

  • Liked — I felt safe, it was clean and inexpensive.
  • Disliked — The distance to the trailheads.
