Stayed at Pinecrest Lake Resort 2bedroom townhouse only a couple of miles from Dodgeridge ski resort. Kitchen stocked with cookware and coffee pot. Towels and linen provided. Only drawback is 1 bathroom in townhouse. There is no cancellation policy within 30-day of stay. Was hoping to enjoy the lake which is right across from resort but turns out the lake...

This was the worst stay I have had in the United States. Let me start off by saying that I expected this place to be rustic. I selected it given it is close to Dodge Ridge Ski Resort. When we arrived, we quickly got our keys and went to get our ski equipment. When we returned an hour later, at...

Review is for the town home. It has a fire place. The kitchen was big and has a refrigerator, a microwave, an oven, a dishwasher, and a toaster. The hotel is near the lake. If you are going skiing at dodge ridge it is 10 minutes away. The town home is very big. There were two bedrooms one with a...

Beautiful scenery, wonderful walking paths, amazing lake. I went for an hour cause I was in the area on a work trip and had some time to kill, it was snowing when I went and it was super pretty. It's worth your time, and you can walk around the lake. I love the fact that it's sorrounded by amazing mountains...

I absolutely loved this location it has something for everyone. If you want to camp for the week, the weekend or just go for the day. Or stay a few hours. There is a little lake that is able to house dozens of different types of boats. Like pontoon boats, sail boats, deck boats, fishing boats, there is kayaking and...

We hated our stay. First the good: friendly check-in and close to the beach. That's it. The unit itself, however, was old and filthy. Spider webs everywhere (inside and out), old formerly white blinds that are now black with dirt/grease, slanted floor, poor light, non-operational windows, dirty sock left behind from previous guest, dirty towels, hot with no AC, shower...

We travelled up from SFO, to this area, looking forward to a great long weekend, The centre was packed, no where to park, and the temp. in the 90's. We got the keys to the 3 bedroomed town house at about 2.30. and unloaded the car from a parking space outside the house. The units was basic but was clean,...

Leary because of some reviews. Clean. Full kitchen. TV. Towels and linens. Had to wash dishes, sweep, vacuum. 10 minute walk to lake. Outdoor movie was great. A little high priced paying for location.

I absolutely LOVE Pinecrest Lake. It offers swimming, boating, hiking,camping, ranger programs, amphitheater with current movies, fishing, beaches, cabins, a general store, a sporting good store, and a restaurant. There is also a coffee hut, bike rentals, and an art gallery. It has been my favorite destination for 43 years.

The campground is nice, the day we went it was sold out/full, being we have a RV it's good to check out the area, there were tent's and RV's but for us our RV is a bit lg. and were not super comfortable...
