Pinegrove Campground sits in the lush Coconino National Forest of northern Arizona, offering visitors countless recreation opportunities set in a stunning landscape.
Nearby Upper and Lower Lake Mary, Ashurst, Marshall and Kinnikinick Lakes serve as a recreational focus for this campground. All are stocked with fish including trout, bass and channel catfish. Upper Lake Mary is popular with power boaters, and Ashurst attracts a following of windsurfers along with anglers and boaters.
Several excellent hiking and biking trails are located within a short drive. Visitors also enjoy wildlife viewing and picnicking.
The campground is comprised of 46 spacious individual sites. The facility provides coin-operated showers, picnic tables, campfire rings, cooking grills, drinking water and accessible flush toilets.
There are boat ramps at the lakes, as well as accessible fishing access at Lake Mary Narrows.
Coconino National Forest's 1.8 million acres offer clear lakes, red rock cliffs, desert basins and canopies of pine trees.
The lakes around these forested campgrounds are used as a stopover for migrating waterfowl, a wintering site for rare bald eagles and a feeding ground for resident ospreys. The area is also home to a considerable number of elk and mule deer.
The nearest town is Flagstaff, Arizona, about 20 miles away. Camping supplies, groceries, gas, restaurants, shopping and more are available.

We arrived Thursday evening on a holiday weekend and all spots were filled up. Luckily we had a reserved spot beforehand. Most of the reservable spots are accessible to larger rigs. Spot 36 is very narrow and would not advice that one if In a large class A or a longer fifth wheel. We stayed in 18. The picnic table is on the back side but there is a large field directly behind. Great for the kids to run around. Shade is great throughout the day and shades the camp spot great. Considering that it is a holiday weekend there weren’t as many people as we were anticipating. Everyone was respectful of quiet hours and each other. The camp host were very friendly and even came around on the 4th just before sunset and handed out glow sticks for the kids. The showers were closed but bathrooms all open.
There are water spigots throughout the campground that water is free to get if you are camping in the campground. You are also able to fill up freshwater tank at the entrance by the showers when you arrive. Dump station is onsite.
Verizon service was terrible. Some spots were able to get LTE but not guaranteed.
We love this campground. It has everything you would need to camp in the woods. There is water to fill up if needed but showers available for a fee also. There are spots you can reserve 6 months in advance on the website. Amazing that there is a dump station available. We always drive to Ashurst Lake for fishing.
Pine Grove is a nice campground to beat the Phoenix heat in the summer. Some sites are pretty private, while others are not. Our kids enjoyed playing in the meadows, catching bugs, and riding their bikes around the campground. But other than that, there's not a whole lot else to do. It's a quiet base camp near Flagstaff and the activities there. But we enjoyed the relaxing days at camp. We went in late September and the daytime temps were perfect but the nights were pretty chilly for us Phoenix desert rats. The flush toilets and showers were a nice convenience.
Campground was beautiful, spacious sites with nice level paved parking pad and tent pad. Our site was among the pines bordering a meadow. Each site had a fire pit and picnic table. Campground had wood for sale, clean bathrooms, and pay showers located near the host sites. Sites aren’t private, but we didn’t feel on top of our neighbors either. The Arizona trail passes through near the entrance of the campground, so there is trail access for hiking/biking nearby.
Some friends and I went camping here near the beginning of our first semester in college. It was peaceful and we were the only ones in the vicinity. The drive was beautiful and for a bunch of astrophysics students, the night sky there took our breath away. Definitely plan on going back.
Flush toilets. Pay showers. Weekend ranger talks at small amphitheater. Most sites are spread out but some quite close. Nice flat spot for one big tent or two small ones at each site. Close to Mormon Lake. Access to Arizona Trail right by camp.
On a side trip from Route 66 I headed down towards Sedona, camping on the way down and back. I ended up at Pine Grove Campground. It was a pretty nice campground, and pricey as a result. Mostly Rv’s and some tents, at least this campground had pay showers and a very attentive campground host (mostly due to his Very Very alert little dog). The campground is large with more than one loop, set back in the pine trees. There were great opportunities for hammocking and visiting with your close neighbors. Every site had the usual picnic tables and fire pits, and for the RV set, there were full hookups and a dump station. The best part was how quiet it was back in the trees. However, it was so dry you could not have a fire without some major trepidation. The nearby lakes were more than 10 feet below normal levels.
This campground has everything you need. Flush toilets, pay showers, water, easy access to sites. If you’re looking for comfortable camping, this is a great place for you. We found it to be a little more commercialized than we prefer, but we chose to stay here due to the proximity to the Arizona Trail. The trail can be easily caught from Pine Grove and road from Utah to Mexico. The Coconino National Forest is gorgeous. Despite how built up the campground is, it still provides wonderful wooded scenery.
We camped at pine grove in July 2016. The weather was perfect! Very clean campgrounds with flush toilets, garbage, fire rings, and tables. They have showers, but you pay for that (not sure how much). We felt very safe there. It was packed with campers and not a lot of space between the sites. The camp hosts were very nice and made their rounds many times per day. They sold fire wood and ice. There were a few lakes nearby, but they were all dry at that time. All sites were under tall pines. Everyone seemed to obey the 10 pm quiet time. We did see a baby bear on top of the camp hosts 5th wheel when we got there, so remember this is bear country! We will definitely return
Cool evenings, a bit breezy, beautiful during the day! Bring your bicycle, if you have one!
