WHAT AND WHERE IS PINE MOUNTAIN LAKE 


By Val Bruce

Pine Mountain Lake is a gated community with 24 hour fixed and mobile security guards, located in the Central Sierra Nevada foothills of California.

Pine Mountain Lake was originally built in 1969 by Boise Cascade. The development featured 4,141 residential lots, a private lake, championship golf course and public airport. The development totally sold out by 1974. 

The Country Club, Equestrian Center and airport are all open to the public.  The championship golf course is semi-private and open to public play. All other amenities such as, Tennis/Pickleball Courts, Lake, Swimming pool, etc. are available only to property owners and their guests.

Pine Mountain Lake is around 2500-3000 feet in elevation.  Our moniker is above the smog/fog and below the snow.  The summer nights are cool and winter snows are light so we can enjoy the beauty of it and not the headache (or bother).  Roads are open year-round.  Daytime temperatures are usually in the 60’s in the winter and 80’s in the summer.  Spring and Fall temperatures are usually in the 70’s.

Pine Mountain Lake is located in the unincorporated community of Groveland, Ca. on State Hwy. 120, the Northern Gateway to Yosemite National Park.  It’s approximately 140 mi. from San Francisco and San Jose, 115 mi. from Sacramento, 80 mi. from Stockton, 70 mi. from Modesto, 120 mi. from Fresno, 27 mi. from Sonora and only 26 mi. from Yosemite National Park.
