Condors, turkeys, and caves... Oh my! Pinnacles Campground in Pinnacles National Park has everything you need for an unforgettable stay, complete with a swimming pool and a general store.

Pinnacles Campground is accessible from the east side of the park, and you generally lose cell service about 20 minutes before the park entrance. The campground offers tent camping, group camping, and a handful of RV sites. The tent and group sites have individual picnic tables and fire rings, and the RV sites typically have electrical hookups and community tables and barbecue pits. Campsite 18 is the most secluded, located at the end of the road by a closed gate. The campground also features coin operated showers, a swimming pool, and a dump station. 

The campground store is open from 9:30-4:30 daily. You can buy basic camping supplies, assorted food items, and firewood. Dogs are allowed in the campground but not on the trails. You can make campground reservations here.
