If you're bringing a group to Pinnacles National Park, please take a moment to review our campground rules and our park safety information.

Parking may be limited on weekends at trailheads and day use areas within the park. You may want to consider hiking from the campground. Destinations that are within walking distance include Bear Gulch Nature Center and Trailheads (2.3 mi), Bear Gulch Cave and reservoir (3.3 mi), the South Wilderness Trail (0.6 mi), and Balconies (3.7 mi). For more information, please visit our trails page.

If you're not able to hike into the park, consider shuttling your group in and leaving most of your vehicles at your campsite. On weekends in the spring, you can also ride our park shuttle.
