Pinemoon Cave is a small cave in Haafingar that is populated by wolves and vampires of various levels. 

A grove of trees in Haafingar's tundra opens to a small campsite. At night, there may be vampires milling about the exterior camp. In the day they will be inside the cave.

At the entrance of the cave itself are three white cap mushroom nodes. There are over 60 Fly Amanita nodes inside, making it one of the most plentiful sources of this mushroom in Skyrim.
