We were very pleased with this park. Nice large, level sites with lots of shade from pine trees. Staff was very friendly and helpful. While we were there, they had a pancake breakfast and afternoon ice cream social. WI-FI was free and we had no problem receiving a strong signal even with being located in the back of the park. Several seasonal sites, but well kept, clean park. No pull-through sites, but we had no problem backing into our site. If we had been members of Passport-America the daily rate would have been $15 a day, but since we were not members we paid $30 a day, still a fair rate compared to some other parks with less going for them. The Full Hook Ups were not ideally located, but were easy to access. This park does not offer cable, but we had no problem setting up our satellite even with all the trees. We will definitely stay here again.

The people working at this park are very friendly and helpful. They treat you almost like family. The friendly attitude alone rates a good rating. This place is close to downtown Williams, Grand Canyon Railroad, and about an hour drive from the South rim of the Grand Canyon. The restrooms, showers, and RV sites are kept very clean. Most sites are pull-through and easy to get into and out of. However, this is a gravel parking lot with few trees and a patch of grass around the utility stubs. All night you can hear the traffic from Interstate 40 and expect to hear the Train whistle blowing when it returns from the Canyon late at night. Our particular site was not level and the cable worked poorly.

This is a very family and pet friendly campground. Nice amenities and the staff was pleasant and very helpful. However, the pull-through site we were assigned had dozens of ant hills, so we could not really enjoy sitting outside. Upon leaving, we had a difficult time getting out because of the small access roads and location of trees. We have a 30ft fifth wheel and had to wait for the camper behind us to leave so we could back up into their site to leave. Could not pull through because of the proximity of the other fifth wheels and motorhomes across from our site.

Pinegrove is one of our favorite places. Lots of shade from the numerous Pine trees, easy to access level sites, and the sites can be reserved. Various hiking trails and fishing close by. It is only open between May - Oct and a favorite place for people wanting to get away from the heat as the campground is at approx. 7000 elevation. It would rate a 10 if it had full hook ups. It does have an easily accessible dump site, clean flush toilets, and showers. It is managed by US Forest Service Paid Volunteers (camp hosts). Most of the time these hosts are friendly and helpful and check on visitors regularly, however this stay the camp hosts were unfriendly and avoided contact. You had to hunt them down to get any assistance at all.
