Whether you visit Pinnacles to conquer the high peaks or just to enjoy the local flora and fauna, this national park has an excellent campground to use as your base for operations. Located near the park's east entrance, camping here provides quick access to hiking trails, a general store and ranger station, and a swimming pool. Tent, RV, and group sites are spacious, clean and level. Most campsites have a decent amount of shade thanks to large oak trees and other foliage. A picnic table and fire pit comes standard with each site. RV campers can enjoy 120-volt hookups with 30-amp service, and there is a dump station on site. Potable water, flush toilets, and showers are sporadically distributed around the campground. 

Like most National Parks, leashed dogs are allowed in the campgrounds but not on any of the hiking trails. Use of the campfire pits is seasonal, so it's a good idea to check before you go.
