We offer 10 sites that are dry camping in a half acre plot. The only amenity is a port-a-john. There are no dump stations for RV's in the vicinity. The Pinnacles Campground does have coin operated showers. 

The camping area is not groomed and an electric fence is in place to keep cattle out. We recommend car camping/tent/small RV, with a maximum of two cars per site and 4 adults. With no more than 5 total people including children.

There is no shade available so we recommend campers bring a shade structure as we move into the summer months.

We provide camping that is a 10 minute drive to access the Pinnacles National Park Campground Store parking area, where the Bench Trailhead is located.

Another 10 minute drive will take you to the Bear Gulch or Old Pinnacles trail heads. 

During COVID19 shutdown the Pinnacles will be accessible with some restrictions. Please go to the Pinnacles for current information on access.

Great spot! Simple, flat camping sites in a remote area. Clean port-a-potty. Bill provided firewood for I think $5-10. Closest shop is about a 25 minute drive (I think the description says 10 minutes but we didn’t find one that close). Would definitely stay again!

Bill’s field is in a perfect location compared to the park entrance. Bill himself is super welcoming and kind. The field is very well kept. We camped there and biked to the park entrance and back. Thank you Bill for an excellent stay and your hospitality!

This site was easy to find w the directions provided, even without cell service. The sites had plenty of space, and was grassy. We used the fire pit to have a fire, and the portable restroom was convenient. The host, Bill, even gave us some tips for enjoying the National Park.

Bill was great, greeted you at the gate. Knowledgeable about the park as he was a past employee.

Bill was a cool dude who cares about the park and the climbing community. Gave us good advise for our first trip to pinnacles. His property is perfect! Super close to the west entrance of the park. Will definitely be coming back for another stay!

Bill’s spot is great! Right next to Pinnacle’s east entrance, but out of the weekend hustle and bustle. Great stay, thanks Bill!
