Pineknot Campground (California)

Pineknot Overview

Pineknot 42

Pineknot Campground has 47 campsites for tents, trailers and small RVs in two loops at the base of Snow Summit Ski Resort Mountain.  It is a popular basecamp for mountain biking on the slopes of Snow Summit. Each campsite has a paved parking spur, table, fire ring and grill. The campground has drinking water and flush toilets. Firewood is also available for sale at the campground. A dump station is also located across the the lake at Serrano campground that registered Pineknot campers can use.

The Team Bear Mountain Bike Center is also at Snow Summit. It offers mountain bike rentals and repairs. The Center also holds organized competitive races (downhill and cross-country) for amateur and professional mountain bikers.

Obviously this is a great basecamp to ride mountain bikes,  as well as hike, horseback ridge, rock climb, picnic, check out the town of Big Bear Lake, or just kick back under the big trees.

A few other campgrounds in the area are: Hanna FlatSerrano, Big Pine Flat and Holcomb Valley.

  1. Rosie says:

    Does pine Knot campgrounds have showers

  2. Linda says:

    Where, in the city, is a place for campers to shower???

    • Hi Linda,
      There are no public showers in Big Bear Lake that we’re aware of. Serrano Campground (across the lake from Pineknot) has showers, but only for registered campers.

    • Kevin Fishel says:

      Serrano will let you shower at their campground as long as you have a current registration at Pineknot. We have been camping at both for 20+ years

  3. Tanya says:

    Looking to reserve August 17 and checkout 8/20

    Never been..

    Is there a fire ring and bbq at each site?? Which site is recommended for tent camping?

    • Hi Tanya,
      Yes the Pineknot campsites each have a table, fire ring and grate (for BBQing). There are also some food storage lockers in the campground. We recommend checking out the photos to determine good sites for tent camping, but most are good for tents. You can click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button to check availability, pricing and make a reservation. Have a great time!
