About the Year-Round Cabins

Star Party Weekend, March 22-24, 2024
This is the perfect weekend for astronomy fans. Alex and his family will be joining us for a weekend to learn and enjoy our bright nighttime skies together. On Saturday night, Alex will lead a ‘Star Party’ with his high powered telescope on the Gold Softball Field, where we’ll hope for clear skies to see the Milky Way and beyond.
Alex is one of the world’s most highly cited astronomers, and an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences. He’s not only an extremely popular UC Professor, but also our most popular guest speaker during family camp each summer. He makes a hobby of observing total solar eclipses and this Oski weekend is just a few weeks ahead of the next solar eclipse, so learn more about eclipses this weekend too.

E and F numbered cabins are configured with five units together in a circular formation and a fire pit in the middle. G numbered cabins are set in a row with beautiful forest views along with a fire pit at the end of the row. We provide firewood and s’mores fixings for cozy, warm evening fun.
Each cabin sleeps up to six guests, and includes a queen bed, bunk bed (two twin beds), and two single beds in the loft which are best for kids ages 8 and up. Units E1, F1, G1, and G2 are ADA-compliant.
Things to Do in Pinecrest During Winter
Spend your day enjoying outdoor activities for all ages. When the sun sets, the Camp Gold Lodge is the place to eat dinner, hang out, and play games including ping pong and cornhole. Later, head back to your cabin circle and roast marshmallows for yummy s’mores!
