Description

Pinecrest campground is in high-demand, and for good reason. Located on scenic Pinecrest Lake, this is known as the Beverley Hills of the Sierras. Okay, we just made that up, but there are serious accommodations here by outdoorsman standards, including a small store, marina, sandy beach, amphitheater, and bike rentals.

Seriously. This place is packed for a reason. I grew up coming here and the only thing that has changed is the water level and amount of people. The beaches might get packed but just a short hike around the lake will have you secluded in no time. They have movies in an outdoor theater for the whole family, pretty clean bathrooms, and a variety of loops to choose from. We usually stay furthest away from the lake—it's a little quieter back there. But really, any site you get is going to be worth the trip.

A great place to camp if you like amenities! This is a popular summer vacation spot and fills up fast. Some campsites are a short walk across the street and you're at the sandy shore of Pinecrest Lake. There's a well stocked store, snack shack, boat rentals, art gallery, flush toilets and there's even nightly movies at the amphitheater! The walk around the lake is easy, and a great way to escape the crowd and grab a private spot. You can also hike to Cleo's bath from the lake trail, check out the view, and watch the water rush over the cliff!
