Pine Point Campground is 1/2 mile north of North Canyon Campground on the east side of the reservoir on Forest Rd. 603 midway up the lakeshore. It has views of high peaks to the northwest. Its 30 shady sites include several pull-thru and larger sites for trailers and RVs. There are 15 reservable sites and 15 non-reservable sites.  Some are near the water, but the area is not well protected for mooring boats. A sheltered area for boats and an open play area are just south. Commercial development on the east side of the reservoir is limited to resorts north of Pine Point. They have camping services, but gasoline is not available.
