Pinecrest Campground

The Pinecrest Campground is positioned across the street from Pinecrest Lake by foot and a short drive down the street by car. The campground is also across the street from the pinecrest shopping center, which includes the general store, a shower stall for campers looking to freshen themselves up, the steam donkey restaurant, the serene bean coffee kiosk and a bike rental. Comfortable living as far as camping goes. The Pinecrest Campground is part of the Stanislaus National Forest but is operated by Dodge Ridge through a permit.

The campground is made up of 4 basic loops, A, B, C, and D. A, being the loop furthest from the lake and D being the loop closest to Pinecrest Lake and the amphitheater.
