Bordering on the East Fence of the Pinnacles we can provide dry camping. My grandmother Hazel James ran a lodge in the Pinnacles in 30’s and 40’s with my father Sam and uncle Jack. My grandfather P.O. was a foreman for the state highway department until the early 60’s. My grandparents bought the ranch in the early 40’s and over the years it has been passed from generation to generation. It has always be a place to get away from the bustle of the city. My grandmother never made much money, in those days Pinnacles was out of the way. She didn’t mind so much as she was always mindful of the military fellas having a place to get away. Even when times were hard she wanted to keep it open to provide a place where the service members could go. The lodge was tore down in the 50’s but the memories of the stories still linger. HipCamp has provided us a way to preserve the legacy and share it with those who want to get away. With COVID19 I thought it was a good time to retire from the park service and start making a place for campers. So here we are in our 2nd year. I hope you enjoy you stay.

Location, location! A short drive outside the park with a reasonable amount of space for tent/car camping. Will definitely return again on the next Pinnacles adventure.

Night under the stars
A decent alternative if you can’t find camping at the park. Bare bones camping, spaces are wide and come with a fire pit. We came during a heat wave so no fires where permitted. Great for stargazing :) … wasps are out but go away at night. We had a great night of sleep under the stars. The host nephew came to check in on campers.

Good little cheap spot. Bill really nice. Bare bones but worked great for a night to stay close to park so you can get a really early start hiking.

Camping spot right by the park! Bill welcomed us and we had a great time. The campsites are very close to each other and no tree cover/shade, but if you’re looking for a lot close to the NP, this is a great spot.
