My first impressions of this park were not very good. When you drive in it looks a little run-down with old buildings, potholed roads, untrimmed vegetation, and very rustic. There are lots of seasonals driving around in golf carts drinking beer and lots of nightly gatherings. But throughout the week we were here we ended up really enjoying our stay at Pine Grove. The seasonals and staff were super friendly, the park turned out to be pretty quiet and we enjoyed sitting outside by our nightly campfire.
The owners recently acquired the campground and are working very hard to make improvements and improve the looks of the campground. The campground is fairly small (43 sites) but has a nice woodsy feel. We snagged one of the last campsites that had 50 amp so we were told it might be a little tight but were given a choice of two sites. The park owner was nice enough to give us a choice and work with us to find one that we fit in. One was totally unlevel and the tree roots would have been a major problem for us. The site we chose was more level was but it took some time backing our large RV into the site because of the trees. There are some great waterfront sites if you have a smaller RV or tent. The roads throughout the park are dirt and gravel but were not very dusty. Water access in this park is great whether you want to paddle or just lounge around in the river on a raft. There is a nice cozy lounge which is where you can access wifi near the office. Our Verizon phone was useless for internet and our hotspot. We used our portable satellite antennae to pick up television but had to do some manipulating because of the trees.
Our lure to this park was to explore the natural areas nearby, especially Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument and Baxter State Park. There is so much natural beauty around this area that we definitely recommend a visit.
