This is an old park with some redeeming aspects but otherwise not on our list of places to revisit anytime soon.

First the positives: The bathrooms, showers and laundry facilities were clean and functional. After reading past reviews, we were pleasantly surprised.

On the negative side, the park could do with selective culling of some pine trees. Our 31' RV barely fit between several trees and we couldn't back in far enough to connect the sewer hose without an extension. There wasn't room for our toad so we parked it in the common area next to our space. The spaces are dirt that got tracked in no matter how careful we were. We lost power for about 20 minutes one night. The worst issue was the pine sap everywhere. It was caked onto the bottom of our shoes, tracked into the RV, on our cat's paws and all over the roof including the solar panel.

Each space had a (cracked) concrete patio, a (old, rickety) picnic table and a washer tub as a fire pit.

Others may find Pine Cliffs fine for their needs but we were underwhelmed. Alcohol doesn't touch the pine tar. You'll need some sort of solvent like Goof Off or the like. Be sure to arrive with a full propane tank because, as of 5/28/16, they were charging $3.89 per gallon. We camped at Pine Cliff Resort in a Motorhome.

Fishermen/women may enjoy the proximity to June Lake but, since neither of us fish, this was moot to us.

Wow, we spent the July 4th weekend with many tent campers in the park. Not what I thought it would be, with tent campers playing loud music and washing their dishes in the bathroom. The PA system is not our cup of tea for sure. I don't see any reason why the camp host must tell everybody to bring a bowl and a spoon for free ice cream. The camp patrol folks were driving around nonstop looking for issues. This is a good thing with all the tent village people walking through our campsite nonstop. We will never stay here again. Good luck staying at this campground on a holiday weekend. We camped at Pine Cliff Resort in a Motorhome.

We made group reservations for 4 sites and paid by check, the only way to pay, 3 months in advance only to show up and be scattered throughout the campground. Completely disorganized, old school reservation system which is poorly run by rude staff,we were overcharged, cash only, and our trailer barely fit in the site despite giving measurements in advance. The owner is rude completely lacking customer service skills and will straight out tell you if you don't like it, leave, with no refunds of course. Watch out for the hidden campground rules; Campfires out by 10:30, $50 non refundable pet deposit in the cabins (if its nonrefundable its not a deposit in my mind), no dogs on the lake beach, no use of a/c or you'll be charged for it, the sites are only 20 or 30 amp so if your trailer needs 50 amp you're blowing fuses daily. We wont ever stay here again. We camped at Pine Cliff Resort in a Motorhome.

Sites are jammed together, concrete patio slab at our site was broken in several pieces some of which were sticking up into the air with sharp edges exposed. There is no dump station and all sewer hookups are at the extreme back of the back-in sites and not accessible to our type of rig. Manager scolding and rude when I asked about a site with an accessible sewer hookup. Showers are very old, poorly maintained and smelling of mildew. I had a terrible experience and would never stay there again. We camped at Pine Cliff Resort in a Motorhome.

We checked in and the woman in the office gave us two different sites- neither would accommodate our 30 ft travel trailer. We finally had to find our own site with the help of another worker at the camp- she really had no idea what rig would fit in to what site. There are just a ton of pine trees all over the park and the roads are not marked very well. The whole place is fine powdery dirt and hard to keep your rig clean. We camped at Pine Cliff Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Pine Cliff may look nice on-line, but once you get there it's like sardines squished into a can with all the other trailers. We had to squeeze our slide out in between pine trees. The size of your campsite is smaller than an apartment balcony! They do offer full hookups, but ours was only 30 amps, and we could not run two A/C units on our rig at once. They offer an old basketball court, horseshoes, and some old Little Tykes play equipment for the kids 3 and younger. The roads are all dirt or gravel, so bike riding or scooters for the kids is not great. Another campground next door is far nicer and has a lake view! Any campground in Mammoth Lakes without hook ups is way better! We will never stay here again! We camped at Pine Cliff Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here for a week over the Fourth of July. We had spot #63 and it was great. Huge rock mountain behind the site and a much larger space than most of the other ones. The campsite is nice, if a bit dusty. There are plenty of mosquitos so bring spray. The store was stocked well, and the people were nice. Ice cream socials on Thursdays, which was a big plus as well. I will come back here for sure. We camped at Pine Cliff Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The only reason I am even giving this place a 3 is because of the setting. The 'resort' website states that just about every site has a view of the lake, which I was also told when I called. Completely false. There is no view, unless you walk down the boat ramp. We arrived at the resort with little welcome from the incredibly rude front desk staff, but also had to stand around and wait for 20 minutes while they chatted amongst themselves. Once we finally got our spot number and drove over to it, we were so confused with the way the spaces were laid out that we had to ask for help. Only to find out that someone else was in our space. They were also confused with the layout of the sites, which is why they were in our spot. Two gentlemen helped us into our new spot, which was very nice of them. However, this is not a 'resort' I would EVER return to. The front office walls are littered with signs about how rude they are, how proud they are to be so rude and about how they don't want to hear you complain, period. Obviously these guys missed the mark in customer service and don't feel they need your business. Mission accomplished. We camped at Pine Cliff Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The staff was nice but not real smart about the facilities. We camped in a motorhome and an Airstream travel trailer. They tried to put the Airstream between two trees that were 8 feet apart. Needless to say we had a problem. After quite a bit a negotiating we were able to park the Airstream. The Motorhome was easier but we were cramped. The park is old BUT is in a great setting. We would come back BUT we now know what sites to ask for. Check out the site map on the web site. It is not to scale but it will help you figure what sites will be best for your rig. Good Luck.

A great location along the June Lake loop, the fishing was great "as always." The camp site are close together, and some are a very tight fit. The campground can be very dusty. The park is pet and family friendly, and is close to Mammoth, and close enought for day trips to Yosemite and Bodie Ghost Town. We camped at Pine Cliff Resort in a Motorhome.

Not a bad place to relax in a nice rustic setting. Site layout got a bit confusing with our pull through site potentially being blocked by the next site. When we checked in, the place was packed, the roadways were not marked clearly and it looked as if a rig was camped on one of the roads. This caused me to drive into a dead end road. A lot of low branches that park workers attributed to government rules prohibiting pruning. Overall we had a relaxing long weekend of quality family time and fishing. I would stay here again.

This was the third year we have vacationed here, and we will be back again next summer. Pine cliff resort is beautiful. We enjoy walking to the beaches along the shores of June lake. The campground is a great home base for enjoying activities at all the lakes in the picturesque loop. The staff is helpful and friendly. You know you're on vacation when you enjoy ice cream on the front porch of the general store. We camped at Pine Cliff Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We had a nice, large shady spot. We rode our bikes to June Lake. Friendly staff, large shaded campground with beautiful rocks in the back. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Pine Cliff Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stay at Pine Cliff almost every year. It is a nice, friendly campground. We love that they have an ice cream social weekly and the ice cream is always good. The general store carries a lot of gift items that are unique. You usually need to book in advance if you want to stay during the summer; it gets pretty full.

Site is very tight and I only see a few that will fit 40'. Site on gravel but there's a concrete pad and table to the side, which is nice. I read from past reviews indicated that the service was bad but I found to be opposite. People were nice. Check in were pleasant. On Thursday, you can get all the ice cream you can eat for 50 cents a scoop. They have about 10+ flavors you can choose from. If you like lake fishing, this would be a good place to stay. 10 minutes to Mammoth lake and June lake is 100 yard away. Mono lake is also 10 minutes drive. We camped at Pine Cliff Resort in a Motorhome.
