Pinnacles Campground is accessed only from the east side of the Park as there are no connecting roads between the two entrances of Pinnacles. The campground offers tent and group camping, along with RV sites. Each tent and group site has a picnic table and fire ring. Most RV sites have electrical hookups and share community tables and barbecue pits. Water is located throughout the campground. Oak trees provide shade at many campsites. Coin-operated showers and a dump station are available. The swimming pool is typically open from middle of April through the end of September, depending on the weather trend.

Pets are allowed in the campground, on paved roads and parking lots. Pets are not allowed on trails. Your pet must be physically controlled on a six-foot leash. Your pet may not be tied to anything and left unattended at any time.

Campfires are only permitted during certain fire danger conditions; check the Current Conditions for updates on fire regulations in Pinnacles. Firewood collecting is prohibited in Pinnacles National Park.
