  1. Milen Fong says:

    Which of these sites would you recommend for a large tent in north pines. 134, 203, 217, or 501.

    • Hi Milen,
      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.

      • Milen Fong says:

        To be more specific, tent is 8 person tent 17×10. Does that eliminate any of those sites.

      • Hi Milen,
        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.

  2. Milen Fong says:

    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.

  3. Celeste says:

    We will be staying at site 308. I’ve read that these sites are small. Do you think there will be enough room for two tents? One tent is a 6 person and the other is a 4 person – we only have 6 people but we like roomy tents.

    • Hi Celeste,
      Good job on reserving North Pines site #308! Your camping neighbors (other campsites) are a little close so a 4 and 6 person tent may be a bit of a tight fit in campsite #308. I’d bring another 4-person tent as a backup.

      • I had big dreams lol! Thank you for your help! It’s been a few years since I’ve camped in the valley. I literally won the lottery to get that site 😉
