For those of you newbies to Pinnacles, there is a hose barb threaded potable water fill spigot between D85 & D86 sight. It has a white sign with a picture of a cup of water on it. You can spin/thread a blue water filter on here and "tank up".
These are the first two sights as you hang a right turn into the D loop sights. Water quality has always been very good at this spot. I've used it several times. There are other water outlets in the park that are not threaded and not labeled as "potable".
Waist dump spot is over across the road from the store on the way out.
There is a threaded water line spigot to flush out your black water tank at the dump sight.
Park also runs a good van shuttle to get you to the end of the paved road if you want to go on a longer hike. All electrical power is 30 amp, store is stocked food with basic needs. Park entrance fee is not included on your camp sight and is $15. For seven days I think. I have an annual pass $(25) Pay at the Ranger station side of the store. It's a combined store. There is a bundle (big orange bag) of fire wood for $12.00 available at the store.
Not uncommon to see flock of 30 + wild turkeys walking through the camp sights by the creek.
Quail running around just about everywhere.
If you haven't noticed I'm "wound up" about this location and this outing.
