The Pines Campground
Stanislaus National Forest \ Groveland Ranger District
The Pines Campground is a comfortable little campground conveniently located just 15 miles from the Yosemite National Park boundary in northern California. The Pines also makes a great base camp for exploring several wilderness areas nearby: Carson-Iceberg, Emigrant and Mokelumne Wildernesses.
A short drive takes visitors to the Tuolumne River for wading and fishing. Campers enjoy hiking the Little Golden Forest Trail, a half-mile interpretive loop with the option for a longer two-mile loop. The Pines is generally open from early May through early October. The campground has 9 first-come-first-served campsites and a large 50-person campsite for tents only.
