  1. James Barnard says:

    Have a 25 ‘ trailer need to camp near camp Fresno by my family . They have a cabin starting July 7 th for one week at Camp Fresno.
    Can you Help.

  2. Arlena says:

    I am trying to find out about reserving Dinkey Creek Chalets. Are you affiliated with the chalets as well? Been leaving voice mails and no response.
    Thank you

  3. Kim Jolicoeur says:

    Great time! We had three 12 year olds and an 8 year old in tow. Stayed in site #98 and loved it. With the exception of the work thinning trees, the campground is beautiful. Quiet time was quiet time without issue. Honeymoon pool and the slicks were a blast! We were unaware of bringing something to sit on to enjoy the slicks, but trashbags worked great for the tush rash that could occur sliding down the “slides” over and over again like our kiddos did. We are def going back this year and will bring cheap yoga mat cut into thirds for our tush. When the area became crowded, we just wandered down stream to an amazingly beautiful, quiet spot all to ourselves. Everything is super kid friendly (honeymoon pool not so much for toddlers though) the staff was friendly and helpful and restrooms were clean. One of our new favorite spots for sure.

    • Mary Anne Broers says:

      Hi, Sounds like fun! Question: Were you tent camping or RV? Thinking about reserving #98 for our camping trip next month, but not sure how private it is, being so close to RV sites.
      I just realized that the spot I reserved #55, is between 2 RV sites.

  4. Mary Anne Broers says:

    I reserved #55 for tent camping, but now realize that #52 and #54 are both RV accessible and right next to this campsite. Would #98 be a better spot as far as privacy for tent camping?
    Thanks, Mary Anne B

  5. Leni says:

    Was wondering if I am able to take my tent trailer (15ft) to the group camp site A loop DINK

  6. Ariel H says:

    Is someone able to tell me which sites are closer to the creek? I see comments about those sites being ideal, but I’m only able to find a hand drawn map and there isn’t much detail included.

  7. Sheri says:

    Has there been much fish catching lately? We have small kids 7, 5, 3 that would love to fish.

  8. Mel says:

    Are dogs allowed?

  9. Jen says:

    Do children under 1 count as a person?

  10. Jacob says:

    If we reserve site for for 2 nights10 people and only 9 go will be fine ? Also can 2 tents be put up and also can we check in after 2pm or have to at that time ?

    • Hi Jacob,
      Dinky Creek campsites can have up to 6 people per site (including children). The maximum vehicle length is 35 feet. Check in time is 2pm and check out is 12pm. You have up until 2pm the following day of your first day to occupy the site. You can also put up two tents on a campsite provided both tents fit in your campsite space/area.

    Do you have photos of the group site A
