Things To Know Before You Come

Bring everything you need for a comfortable visit.
We recommend plenty of drinking water, food and beverages, flashlights and hiking equipment. On the east side of the park, the campground store offers snacks, drinks, and limited camping supplies. The store is only open for a few hours each weekday afternoon, with longer hours during Spring / Summer weekends.

Plan ahead on which entrance you would like to visit.

Highway 146 is the access road to both the Westside and the Eastside of the Pinnacles. However, highway 146 does not connect the two sides of the road together. Please take the time to map out which entrance will be best suited for your plans and ensure an enjoyable experience. (NOTE: Most GPS units will automatically lead you to the West Pinnacles)

Pets are allowed in the campground, parking lots and on paved roads. Pets are not allowed on trails. Your pet must be physically controlled on a six foot leash. Your pet should be with you at all times.
