Most RV sites have electrical hookups and share community tables and barbecue pits. Water is located throughout the campground. Oak trees provide shade many campsites. Showers and a dump station are available. The swimming pool is typically open from middle of April through the end of September, depending on the weather trend. Pets are allowed in the campground, on paved roads and parking lots. Pets are not allowed on trails. Your pet must be physically controlled on a six-foot leash. Your pet should not be left unattended at any time. Campfires may are only permitted during certain fire danger conditions; check the Current Conditions for updates on fire regulations in Pinnacles.
