If you are looking for a unique RV getaway destination you can't beat Pinnacles National Park. The area in and around the beautiful Pinnacles National Park was originally born from natural disasters and was home to the Chalon and Mutsun groups of the Ohlone people. These Native Americans left stone artifacts in the park that have been found in archaeological digs through the 20th century.
The incredibly unique Californian landscape of the park is due to many natural occurrences, including trembling from the San Andres Fault Line Activity (the line runs through the park), along with water and chemical erosion. Before becoming Pinnacles National Park in 2013, it was known as Pinnacles National Monument when it was given the title by President Theodore Roosevelt. In modern day times, the park receives 250,000 visitors each year, including lots of RVers, and even more wildlife critters.
The weather within the park consists of hot and dry summers and mild winters. The good thing is that there is no bothersome humidity to be found, however dehydration can be a real issue, so be sure to stay hydrated and protect yourself from the powerful sun. You most likely won’t have to worry about rain, and when it does rain, it’s a moderate amount during the winter months. Some of the popular activities inside the park include rock climbing, wildlife watching, and hiking. You will also get to experience all kinds of beautiful nature and scenery, including mountains, caves, wildflowers, rare wildlife, and the incredible rock formations that give the park its name.
Unlike the majority of National Parks in the United States, Pinnacles National Park has only one RV-friendly campground available for visitors. The campground is open all year round for renters and owners, featuring a combination of primitive and electrical sites. Due to the weather, Pinnacles National Park's peak season is during the spring months.
