The purpose of FOP is to inform, educate, and advocate on behalf of our members regarding the protection of the recreational uses of the Stanislaus National Forest’s Pinecrest Basin. The geographical location of interest is within the Stanislaus National Forest boundary primarily centered in the Highway 108 region around Pinecrest Lake.

A primary purpose of FOP is to interact cooperatively with the Forest Service and other interested parties in the design, utilization, and management of recreation facilities and opportunities. FOP intends to interact with the Forest Service on such matters as sanitation, fire safety, public health and safety, and general recreation and management of Pinecrest Lake in particular.
