General Information

Description - The Big Pines Recreation Area offers a variety of recreational opportunities and facilities for year-round enjoyment. Ten campgrounds and five picnic areas are available, and all provide tables, stoves and restrooms. Numerous hiking trails are in the area, including a section of the Pacific Crest Trail. Nearby Jackson Lake provides opportunities for fishing, and Grassy Hollow Visitor Center is just a few miles west of Big Pines.

The picnic areas are: Arch (summer water, 13 tables), Grassy Hollow (water, 22 tables), Jackson Lake (water, 8 tables), Table Mountain (no water, 6 tables), and Mescal (water, 9 tables).

During the summer a variety of special activities are offered for Forest visitors. Included in the schedule are campfire programs, guided nature walks, and children's activities. Program schedules are posted on the bulletin boards in the campgrounds and at the Information Station.

The Big Pines Information Station, located near the junction of State Highway No. 2 and Country Road N-4, provides information regarding recreation opportunities, as well as National Forest Adventure Pass sales, campfire permits, brochures, and books and topographic maps for sale. The Information Station is open Friday through Sunday from 9 AM to 4 PM.

An Adventure Pass is required for your vehicle parked on National Forest lands while recreating (picnicking, hiking, camping in a no-fee campground, hunting, etc.) A Pass is not needed if you are parked at an administrative site (Information State, Visitor Center, etc.) or in an area where a fee is already required.
