This is a beautiful campground in the Sierra Mountains with abundant pine trees and beautiful large camp sites. It is about a 20 minute drive to Shaver Lake, where we usually spend a day or two each year. There is a great creek for swimming (it is cold) and fishing. The fish and game service stocks the creek with trout regularly during the summer months. We have camped here for many years, typically for a week near the beginning of August, and will continue to visit on a regular basis. In the past couple of years, the restrooms have been redone, and now nearly all in the area have flush toilets and faucets. Showers are available at the Dinkey Creek Store for a nominal fee. The store also has some supplies and ice. The downside, no hookups and water has to be hauled to your site. There are not enough water faucets in each loop and you may have to hall your water 100 or so feet as the only faucets are near the restrooms. I carry a 5 gallon water jug and a small collapsible dolly for this purpose. There is also no cell service in Dinkey, but pay phones are available at the store. There is cell service in Shaver Lake as well as restaurants and grocery stores. Overall, if you don't mind dry camping and you love the serenity of the mountains you can’t beat Dinkey Creek. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

Beautiful park with large campsites with lots of mature trees in a mountainous area that may put a strain on some motorhomes. Nice creek for wading or fishing or near by Shaver Lake for all water sports.gets crowded on weekends. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a great place if your okay with dry camping. Sites are very spacious and setting is gorgeous. The only reason it didn't get 10 stars was that the closest dump station is 15 miles away at Edison Campground. The river is wonderful for fishing and play. Very clean campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
