Rainbow Pool Picnic Ground, located near Sweetwater Campground in Groveland Ranger District, offers picnic sites, swimming, vault toilets, and limited parking. Originally a toll stop in the stagecoach days, Rainbow Pool later became a popular resort until a 1958 fire burned it to the ground.
Campfire permits are not required within developed day use sites;
however, campfires are limited to the grills provided. Campfire permits are
required if you plan to build a campfire or use a camp stove outside a
recreational vehicle away from a developed campground. Permits are free and may be obtained at the Groveland Ranger District.
Directions from Groveland: Travel 15 miles east on Highway 120.
