Pinecrest Lake is one of those places where families have been going for generations. It’s in the Sierras, not far from Yosemite. I love the long hiking path all around it. It has many historic and beautiful cabins, a small resort, a restaurant and a few shops. There is even a library and a bike rental, and an outdoor movie theatre with the latest family movies and sells popcorn!
The best thing is there are very few bugs and the weather is usually really temperate in July and August. The lake has only quieter boats and no jet-skis or speed boats. Best of all, my boys really love going and my camper husband is in his element.
