Pinecone is a specialized campgrounds for trailers only, especially geared to seasonal camping. We are seasonal campers there. The pros of staying at the campground, Week-end activities, bingo, movies, dances , all organized by the seasonal campers. Great job. They give back to the campground. There are new chairs at the pool, which were donated from the 50/50 money. Paved... More

It's a nice enough campground catering to seasonal campers. The lots are small and there's no security to enforce the rules, such as no bikes after dark, quiet time (midnight!), one vehicle per lot and motorized scooters, to name a few. While the parents are having a party at night with the music cranked up, the kids are roaming the... More

Stayed here many times in the past but we feel now there is very little security and for a family campground. Where has the quiet time gone. Terrible with the loud music and believe it or not karaoke. Still going on very very loudly at 0220 hours. Children awake and upset along with the parents....not impressed even a little bit.

What a bad experience we had at this place. Overcrowded, noisy, small lots, no control at all, parties untill 03:00 am. Lots of kids with no supervision. The owners don't care about their clients. Just the money. The road are so narrow, they should be one-way but the owners wouldn't enforce it anyway The don't have the slightiest idea of... More

I've never seen such a crowded "camp" ground. If you enjoy feeling like stacked cordwood, by all means spend some time here. I've never seen a more crowded spot. The 3 pools are nice enough, but it was just too crowded. I'd hate to see it on a long weekend. Did I mention that it was crowded?

I wanted to make a reservation at this campsite but was told NO TENTS ALLOWED. They would not even give us a trailor site to put a tent on. What kind of campground is this? Never heard of such a thing. As in one other comment, The word NO is used too often.

we have stayed at pine cone 2 times and loved both times. nearly all the lots have numerous trees (except the "new" section which is very open and lots of gravel) and you really feel like you are in the woods and camping. we have a 32 foot trailor and many 3 way lots of average size. great pools and...

My Fiance & I stayed three nights July 29,30,31.......we really enjoyed most of our stay,however a few points to note. The no debit at the office and canteen sucks. There is an ATM at the office......but not going to pay $3 to use......givin the fact the take your credit card payment....makes sense they should take debit. Also.......motorize scootors need to...

We have been seasonal campers at the pine cone for four or five years now. The campground is geared around kids, if you can't handle this them maybe pine cone isn't the place for you to be. The owners and there employees are great and usually treat everyone fairly. The only thing we find frustrating is the two car rule.... More
