Numerous facilities around the 28 miles of Pineview Reservoir's shoreline offer many types of water-based recreation. This includes trailheads, fishing access, and beaches. The reservoir has buoys marking areas of the water surface designated with speed or boat restrictions. Please honor these buoy lines. Any type of vessel is allowed at Pineview Reservoir but boats that are extremely large or speed boats are discouraged. The reservoir is only 3,000 acres when full and those types of boats are out of place. There is a limit to the number of boats on the lake at one time. This limit is based on the current water level and to make the boating safer for everyone.
On the west shore near the narrow neck of Pineview Reservoir is an area designated for "no wake" boating. This allows many non-motorized boating uses like wake boarding or sail boating. This is where the wind tends to be more consistent. Access here is from the Pineview Trailhead which also serves as parking for the Skyline Trail and the Pineview West Trail which follows the shoreline for over three miles.
Fishing occurs nearly everywhere at Pineview Reservoir. There are many roadside parking areas all around the reservoir. Popular sites are in the shallow waters of the reservoir on the southeast or northeast sides. A "no wake" area has been designated for fishing in the waters just north of the Huntsville peninsula at the east shore (Spring Creek). Types of fish in Pineview Reservoir are warm water species including the planted Tiger Muskie which are reaching record sizes.
Port Ramp Marina Located on the west shoreline of Pineview Reservoir, this is the most used launching facility. The road into the marina has a large Forest Service sign identifying the site immediately across Highway 158. The facility has a concrete ramp to launch boats and a large paved parking lot. It also has a gravel lot used as overflow parking. Port Ramp has a convenience dock for public use. There is a Concessionaire manager who lives on site if you need assistance.
Next to the public docks is a gated section of docks for long-term storage of boats. This is operated by the concessionaire. The fenced in lot near the entry station is also for long-term boat storage. Contact the concessionaire for rental information.
Also for public use is a septic pump out system which is adjacent to the long-term storage docks. This is a free service provided by the concessionaire.
Cemetery Point Marina is located in the town of Huntsville. To access the facility, follow Highway 39 to the eastern side of Huntsville. Follow the signs to the swim beach and marina. Cemetery Point is at the end of the road thru Huntsville.
The marina is the first entryway to the left after the fee station. No trailers are allowed beyond this point because parking is tight in the beach area.
This marina is fairly simple with a small paved parking area, a larger gravel parking lot, and a small set of convenience docks.
Anderson Cove Campground Boat Ramp on the south shore of Pineview Reservoir is Anderson Cove Campground. This recreation complex includes a shoreline campground with individual campsites and two group sites, a day-use beach, and a boat ramp. A convenience dock is provided for public use.
Pineview Reservoir has some great beaches. Cemetery Point is very popular and has picnic tables and paved parking. North of Huntsville is Middle Inlet beach which is good access but not as fancy as Cemetery Point. Anderson Cove Campground on the South shore has a beach area available for day-use.
