Golden Pines RV Resort & Campground is a quiet, family-friendly campground located at 5000' elevation in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Here among the towering trees of the Stanislaus National Forest our park has become a favorite destination for travelers throughout the United States and Europe.  Some go out exploring, while others are content to stay and enjoy the peace of the forest in this secluded park. It's up to you!

Our location makes us a great base camp for all of your favorite outdoor activities. Whether you plan on going hiking, fishing, hunting, canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, sight-seeing, skiing, spelunking, wine tasting or just want to relax, Golden Pines is perfectly located for you to explore all that the northern Sierra have to offer. 

We have 21 full-hookup RV sites (4 pull-throughs and 17 back-ins) and over a dozen tent camping sites. Every RV site is equipped with a fire pit, picnic table, 30 amp service, water, and sewer.  Each site is unique, and has unique access requirements.  Please give us a call to start your own tailor-made reservation!

Our tent sites are located toward the back of the campground, far from any road noise in a large, shady grove of tall evergreens with a few old growth oaks. Each tent site has its own picnic table and fire pit. 

We also offer several rental units within the park: small and large sleeper cabins and three rental trailers.

From the moment you arrive at Golden Pines we hope you'll feel welcomed. We think going camping should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience, which is why we aim to offer friendly services along with an inviting ambiance. Come see why most people leave here already planning their next visit!

Bath and Shower Facilities
We have two newly remodeled bath and shower facilities. Both feature full flush toilets and coin-operated hot showers (to conserve water). The lower facility is also home to our coin-op laundry machines, which are available exclusively to our campers.


Swimming Pool
Our pool season is determined by the weather, but generally the pool will be open from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  The large shallow end is kid-friendly, and the deep end is only 6'.  No diving!

The Lodge
The Golden Pines Lodge is available to rent for private parties, and is freely available to Vacation Lease holders. The Lodge is equipped with a full kitchen, a cozy fireplace, and a deck overlooking the forest. It's the perfect spot for a large gathering! Please contact us for pricing and availability.


Cell Phone Reception
Verizon gets a very strong 4G signal. Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T and the rest are not likely to have signal at our location.

We have WiFi available in the park, however we are limited to satellite internet providers in the park. It is great for checking emails and keeping up with social media, but video streaming and downloading large files is likely not supported on our network.
