This place was so nice! The restrooms were so clean and convenient! It is a really clean and organized park to camp at, especially with young children.

The park is a beautiful place to walk around and also to enjoy the lake. There are grills that you can use to cook your food on also.

I spent the weekend of May 4-6 at Pinchot with 3 of my kids. The campground is nice. Not too fancy and yet modern enough with hot showers and plenty of restrooms. A great walking campground and lots of lake view sites. A great place...More

Let me begin by saying that our individual camping site was pretty comfortable, and reasonably private. However, that is due in large part to the fact that one of the two adjacent sites remained unoccupied for our visit. This is a campground with A LOT...More

Pitching the tent was impossible - there was no soft ground for staking- so the only option other than the Rocky gravel area was in weds where spiders made those rocky areas even worse.

Spent 3 days at the state park and it was wonderful. Rented one of the cabins and although they are a little old, it was well worth the money. Full kitchen and bath were great to have but we used the provided fire ring to...More
