Pinnacles National Park Campout


May 27-31, 2024 at Pinnacles National Park

COST: $40 per person to camp in our reserved sites, or $35 per family for visitors. 


Pinnacles Campground is located on the eastern side of the Pinnacles National Park, 32 miles south of Hollister, California in the Salinas Valley.

 The park encompasses 26,000 acres of spectacular rock formations and remnants of an extinct 23 million-year old volcano.

Hiking and rock climbing are very popular activities in Pinnacles, as is watching for the majestic California condor overhead. Pinnacles National Park is a nesting place for the endangered soaring bird, the largest in North America.

A visitor center and a book and souvenir store are located within the campground. A general store with basic foods and camping supplies is located on-site. A swimming pool is located within the campground and is open from April through September.
