We were there for a week of baseball games which was right next to rv park. There is grass and shade trees. Very large sites. Water sewer and electric 30 and 50 amp. There are restrooms with showers. Clean. For us it was perfect. We have stayed here before for baseball games. There are no other amenities. The fair grounds are next to campgrounds also. - Littlegrami

The men's bathroom was not clean except for the one day the caretaker cleaned it. It really needed daily cleaning. Park was OK. We were there for little league tournament. The park was right next to the ball fields, so worked for us. Roads were very dusty. There was hardly anyone there. There are some full time live-ins. The sites if full would be close but hardly anyone stays there. I would stay again for a short period. - Littlegrami

$22 Senior rate can't be beat. ($25 regular) Grass sites that needed several boards to level but hookups were easy and I even found some shade. Famous Frog Jumping fairground, lots of Winery's and a quaint old town but the road - Hwy 49 - is not so 'friendly', be Careful. Easy access to Murphy, CA for a day of wine tasting. WiFi is a charge of $10 day but restrooms are fine and has shower. I get several antenna tv stations and phone service is good. Stayed 2 days and found this park very adequate on my way to Yosemite. - SailorGolf

This is a rustic sort of park with about 80 sites of both pull throughs and back in's. The pull through sites are longer. We were escorted to our site, and it's a good thing because we had to reject it upon seeing it. The site was long enough, but the trees between the sites really needed some trimming. I managed to pull into the site, but there was no way to open the slides without pushing them into the overhanging tree branches. Our guide was pretty understanding and called the office on his radio to get us a different site. After a bit of arm twisting by our guide, he led us to a different site that was much more open. The only drawback to the new site was that it was a group of sites that were cut into a terraced hill. The site was wide enough for the rig, but the ground naturally sloped up towards the next site. This made the outside space next to the rig too uneven to put chairs on, so we put the Jeep in back of the rig and sat in front. All the sites are gravel/dirt so there is a bit of dust. We were able to get satellite from this site, and it was FHU with 50 amp power. There were handicapped accessible restrooms available. Wifi was offered, but our on board Wifi worked acceptably. There are some cow grazing nearby, so there was the occasional "farm" smell drift by at times, as well as some fly's and mosquito's to watch out for. One thing I wasn't crazy about was the layout of the pull through sites. Even though the sites were terraced, they set them up "Jack & Jill" style. So that made our up hill neighbors patio face our patio. Even though there were light bushes on the hill separating the sites, we felt like they were in our conversations while sitting outside. This is a decent park. - SargeW

We had site #30 which is one of the pull-thru sites towards the back of the park. It was compacted gravel ... level and fairly quiet even with the nearby the cabins. We were escorted to our site once we checked in. Hookups worked well. WiFi signal was strong but speed slow. Typical campground wifi. Overall a nice play to stay late in the fall. - M_i_k_e_y

We had a good time because of the folks we were with. And it was close to Columbia--a very cool place to visit. Also, if you are in the area, make sure you visit Sonora. However, I cannot recommend the park for the following reasons: 1. Very, very, VERY run down. Nothing seemed in good repair. 2. Cable was "out" and there were no plans to repair it since it was too expensive. 3. The owner gave our phone number to another camper because the other camper thought one of our friends broke his tail light when leaving. This was a non kosher move. I had to leave our phone number as part of the check-in process. He had no business giving it out to another--for any reason. 4. Nothing but some folding chairs and an old pool table in the "clubhouse." 5. The only TV that was available was in the laundry room. 6. No fire pits, though that's OK since Calif is full of "no burn" days. 7. Wi Fi was non existent. Had to use my phone's hot spot for internet access. 8. The campground has trees in the middle of the road. They are pretty, but pose obstacles that make it a challenge to navigate around as we attempt to back in. - GilesScott

.Maintenance is lacking in the park. This literally is in a quarry. All dirt sites. Lots of shade trees in bottom section, but few where we stayed. Nice desk folks. Would not stay here again . - Joyce Denke

This park was average. Very quiet and peaceful, friendly staff. There was lots to see and do in the area. 30 amp was not adequate for required service. No maintenance was done during our entire stay, trash was overflowing, sites were not clean. With a little maintenance this could be a great park. - wolfman76

Very helpful staff. Friendly campers and well located for the Columbia State Historic Park. Close to Sonora and Jamestown. - Rocky 2

We had a back in level spot. The staff helps you back in, so setting up on the narrow circle is not difficult. WI-FI worked well. AT&T works in park. The park provided hot dogs & chili on Friday night. Rigs are close together, all utilities work and the staff is very helpful. Location can't be beat. Use the directions on the website to get to the park. - travelcouple

Our two sites were elevated and separated from other campers, so we had an excellent view (spotted several deer) with some privacy. Loved the free hot dogs on Friday night! The bathrooms were old but adequate. The fenced dog run is convenient and well-maintained. The park is clean and quiet with a friendly staff. Don't trust your GPS for directions. - Rusty_C

We stayed at the end of September in the Iron Horse campground. Most of the sites (75%) were empty save for a few boaters. The sites are mostly level and very deep (50-60 feet) and there are several pull-through sites. The camp host is very friendly and even offered free firewood. Weather was perfect (low 80s), little or no wind, and no bugs. A few sites have great views of New Melones Lake. Little or no shade anywhere, but not a problem this time of year. - M_i_k_e_y

This is a beautiful and peaceful campground right on the lake. We dry camped here. It is nice if you're self contained. The bathrooms were not available and they had port-a-potties by the restrooms. The water is great for swimming, fishing and boating, although they did have a problem with leaches when we were there, so just something to be aware of. The rangers and camp host are really nice and helpful. Lots of wildlife and beautiful area in California with a convenient store/ gas station at main road and grocery store in Angels Camp couple miles down the road with Redbox rentals and other goodies. - Runluv

Camped in 35' motorhome in site #55. Pros - - Super quiet - can only hear the osprey, turkeys and other wildlife - Our space was level and spacious - space between sites is more than generous - Amazing views of the lake and forested areas. - Camp Host is super helpful - he and his wife work hard to keep the sites clean and all new campers greeted and settled. - Very reasonable cost - Lots of wildlife - from the nearby osprey nest to turkeys, deer and lots of other birds. - Very convenient to Emmett's Pass and Columbia Historic State Park. Cons - - No hookups though water faucets are all over. We don't care as we are self-contained but some may want electric and/or water. - Gina A

Close to Angels Camp and copperopolous
Park was clean, staff friendly.
Lots to explore just at the camp grounds.
Views are amazing. - Dedecd

The difference between a privately run campground and a city/county park is obvious when entering the fairground CG. The park is self check-in with no assistance or help. The CG is confusing in its lay out and probably makes sense but not to us. Asphalt roads with all grass sites, the hook-ups are confusing. The grass had not been cut in weeks and lots of deferred maintenance. The location is quiet at night with good access to the city. Because of its location and lack of options in the area we would return. - sjones

This place offers many different types of sites and utility options. We stayed in the area behind the grandstands had 50 amp with water and sewer. The site was fairly level with the open field in front that was rather bumpy to drive through. There are no views of anything, however lots of area to walk a dog. - illini777

Stayed in advance of the Strawberry Music Festival near Tuolumne, arriving on A Wednesday afternoon. First come-first served, envelope system for payment. Full hookups and wonderful water.
The upper RV sites are in shade and pretty level in an open, park-like setting. There were a few other campers nearby, all music festival attendees.
Fine place to camp: easily accessible off the highway and close to town for all our shopping needs in advance of a 4-day music event. - ReggieK

Overall nice dry camping park. Would definitely not bring a rig over 27 feet here. Narrow turns. One corner took 30 minutes to navigate due to crowding. Great for trout fishing and young children. Caution - dump facility is closed on Sundays. Excellent restaurant/bar -the Steam Donkey; reasonable prices and great food. - Maltaman

This campground was disappointing enough that we stayed only for one night, while we had a reservation for two. The contrast with the Yosemite North Pine campground we were coming from was stunning. When we arrived, mid-afternoon, two cars were already parked in our site. OK, these people were nice and moved out without problem while we had to drive the loop around. The campground next to ours was occupied by a group of at least 15 people drinking and yelling all night, despite the fact that the campground regulations say that the limit of 6 persons per site is strictly enforced. Our site had a significant slope. Some people were burning scrap wood, producing thick smoke and a bad plastic smell. The light was out of service in the very dirty bathrooms: no hooks, a dirty shelf with peeling paint. The showers were worth a photo. For $5, you get: a stall with dirt hanging 9 inches from the ceiling, and an unpainted, wet and unsanitary wood bench. The next campground in our trip was in Calaveras, at the "Golden Pines RV Resort & Campground". For the same price as 4 showers at Pinecrest ($20), we got reasonably clean showers ($1 extra) and a very nice camping spot. Please understand that different people have different tastes. I am sure that many campers will love Pinecrest: those who do not mind crowds, smoke and noise, whose main activity is to sit and drink beer, while children are running around without supervision. Fine also if you like power boats. We are more of the quiet type: hikers, nature watchers. So, despite the crowds, we preferred by far our campgrounds in Yosemite and Calaveras. I will not return to Pinecrest. - NationalParkLover

Excellent Boondocking Park - sunchasermel
May 2017 - $44.00
This review is written as a member of a group of 14 rigs staying 3 nights at this RV park. The kitchen and club room facilities are excellent. The "group loop" is exclusive to the group. 50 amp was not available at our site as well as lack of sewer. Satellite coverage is obtainable in some spots. The dump station is near the park entrance and easily accessible. A lot of previous negative comments on this site are either non-existent or corrected. I would recommend this park to any group of 16 or less. - WindsorDave

Condition of the Park ranges from good to bad. Some of the trailers look like they are falling apart and need to be towed away while others are brand new. The bathroom and showers work but the water is luke warm at best and the pressure is terrible. Extremely slippery floors. Roads are in good condition, but with aggressive speed bumps all over the place. They weed whack fairly often so the weeds stay down.
Manager and Owner not pleasant or understanding. Made me feel inferior. Park has Loud Bass Booming Music, Loud Cars with Exhaust, Highway right next to it, and kids you don't know who get into your stuff and ask for stuff. Don't go here. - CornDog1982

This is a pleasant park. The manager is very friendly and accommodating. Lots of long term residents but lots are kept clean and tidy. Surprised at the trees and shade. Pool is beautiful. Restrooms and showers are extremely clean. Keys are given out to the over nighters. The only complaint is some lots are parked next to three big propane dispensers. Kind of unnerving. - Snooker2

This is a terrific little mountain RV park with great owners. I would give it 5 stars except for one TERRIBLE problem: Pine Sap! After just 2 days under these trees, my rig is literally drenched with it! Thousands of 1/4"+ blobs on EVERYTHING. My awning is probably ruined! You can't even walk around your rig without your shoe soles turning into clumps of pine/dirt, like asphalt. Ever try to remove pine sap? Its almost like epoxy. It will take days of hard work to clean up this mess, and even then, I'm sure there will be permanent damage. I've RV'd all over the USA and never faced this. Sadly, I'll not return here because of this.....:-( If you like cleaning pine sap, by all means stay here!!! - Captain Gort

Park is in a beautiful setting, the air smells so fresh. Sites are a little tight but manageable. Take your time manuerving through the park. Staff is very helpful and friendly. They had a 'communal' fire pit which was nice as we were able to meet new people and our firepit was kind of in the way for our neighbor. There are some locals using the park as a weekend retreat and we found then and the atmosphere to be friendly. We used the site as a home base to visit Big Trees State Park, Yosemite National Park and South Lake Tahoe. We felt lucky as a local band showed up at the park on Friday to 'practice' and they also played at Camp Connell.....what a treat! - locatjl

This park has recently been upgraded and cleaned up. The new owners do an amazing job keeping it clean and all the campers following the rules. This is a beautiful park and the views around the edges are awesome. It also has a pool with is a great addition. When we were there it was very quiet and not many sites filled but come Friday afternoon the families that has leased spaces all started showing up and it made for a very busy park. We headed out to explore quite a bit, golfed at Forest Meadows 2 days and spent a afternoon at Big Trees which is 2 miles before the RV park. There is no WiFi or TV reception so be prepared to be off the grid while camping here. We will totally be back very soon. - RVKat
