Meadowview Campground is located one mile from Pinecrest Lake in the Stanislaus National Forest.
Many visitors choose Meadowview because Pinecrest Campground is full or because they prefer to camp away the busy main campground. A paved bike path connects Meadowview with Pinecrest Campground and the lakeside facilities. Pinecrest Lake offers swimming from a sandy beach in a dedicated swim area, boating, fishing, and hiking.
During the summer months, outdoor movies or ranger programs are offered every night at the amphitheater. Fishing is a favorite past-time from the shore or the designated fishing wharf. In the adjacent community of Pinecrest are a grocery store, sporting goods store, restaurant, bike rentals, and coffee bar. A snack bar is at the beach.
