North Pines Comments & Reviews
Visited North Pines Campground lately? We'd love to hear about your adventure. Did you find us useful? Did we forget something? Anything our community should know before heading out to North Pines?
Which of these sites would you recommend for a large tent in north pines. 134, 203, 217, or 501.
All four of those campsites will accommodate a larger tent, but some may have a little less room between neighbors. I’d recommend, in this order: 203, 134, 217 and 501.
To be more specific, tent is 8 person tent 17×10. Does that eliminate any of those sites.
That is a large tent. Unfortunately we don’t have anyone on site at North Pines campground so I can’t confirm for sure whether your tent will fit in the campsites. I don’t think it would fit in sites 217 or 501.
So sounds like 203. Can you also rate 131 and 314 since they mention allowing large tents. Sorry for all the questions
No problem Milen – anytime! I’d definitely lean more toward site #314. It has enough room for your large tent and is nice and level. Campsite #131 may have room, but it’d be pretty close to your neighbors.
