Hello dear people from Pinegrove Campground, we had the pleasure of visiting you on our cycletrip in june last year. It was very nice to stay for one night on your campground. And having fresh herbs from your own garden ànd the homemade salmon we have been eating on our way to the Rockies. Thank you for everything and we wish you all the best!

Dear Randy and Martina, Pinegrove Campground and RV Park:
... just a short note to say thank you for the weekend of June 20 to 22, thoroughly enjoyed by members of the Interior Zone clubs of the BC Lapidary Society. The 'camp-out' event was hosted by the Thompson Valley Rock Club of Kamloops, and included 8 other clubs of the BC Interior. Your extra efforts to accommodate us with a meeting and eating area under cover, allowance for the coming and going of our visitors, and your continued attention to our comfort and our needs was noticed and much appreciated.
Dave Zirul, President Thompson Valley Rock Club

Pinegrove campground is a fabulous park. My fiancee and I stayed for 6 months through the fall into the beginning of winter. The site are a very generous size. We were even fortunate enough to be placed in a site which had satellite tv included in the rate. Pinegrove is a well priced campground and with that the amount of firewood you get for the price is awesome. There are garbage cans at all the sites which are emptied daily. What makes this campground even better are the owners. Martina and Randy bend over backwards for their campers and are always willing to lend a hand. Absolutely the best long term campground I have ever stayed at. Extremely friendly people! Made our stay amazing and hard to leave."

Hi: Randy & Martina : Thank You, Thank You for your generosity. I had stayed over night in a motel at Blue River, at 4:30 AM 16th sep 2013 I awoke in total darkness (no hydro) first thought, where will I get fuel for my car. As I travelled on, every little town was in total darkness (no hydro no gas). As I approached McLure B.C. my car was running on fumes. Several years ago I had stayed at the Pine Grove Campground, the owner was a retired military person, as I am also retired from the military I felt quite sure he would help me with a gallon of gas. I knocked, when the door opened I said, would an old RCR guy help and old RCASC chap with a gallon of gas explaning my problem. He said just a minute, when he steped out of the house I knew he was not the person that I had met at this camp ground several years ago, however he got me a gallon of 1st grade gas to help me on my way. He then told me he had bought the campground from a retired military person 10 yrs ago and what does RCR mean. (Royal Canadian Regiment) RCASC (Royal Canadian Army Service Corp). Thank you so much, next time I pass your way with our truck & trailer we will be staying over night. I have read the entries in the guestbook and agree with the comments. It is people like you folks who make us proud to say we are Canadians.

Hallo Martina, wir waren Eure Gaeste Anfang September 2011 und haben uns gefreut, einen gepflegten, weitestgehend ruhigen und naturbelassenen Campground vorzufinden. Leider nur fuer eine Nacht, denn wir mussten weiter ostwaerts. Dennoch: es war schoen bei Euch, alles vorhanden, was das Herz begehrt und ein netter, kleiner shop.
Viel Glueck auch weiterhin wuenschen Euch ganz herzlich

Hi Randy & Martina: Thanks for the relaxing time that we enjoyed at your lovely campground. This truly felt like camping. The sites are spacious, the washrooms very clean and the hosts gracious. It was a great place to spend our 45th wedding anniversary. We enjoyed the kale from your garden. We look forward to returning another time.

Dear Randy and Martina Both my wife and I would like to thank you again for your hospitality. While we have been traveling through both the U.S. and Canada your park has been one of the, if not THE best R.V. Park we have stayed in. Your attention to detail at each and every site, whether it be for tents or RV big rigs is well above what anyone would expect. Add in the factor of the hospitality and friendliness that both of you purvey-in our minds makes this stop among one of the best in North America! Congratulations on your accomplishments and may your future be happy and profitable!
Sincerely with regards, Ilona and Vic Masseo, London Ontario

Been coming to BC Canada for 11 years now and I must say Pinegrove Campsite is always top of the list of places to stay, We have stayed there about 7 times now and every time gets better and better, the owners are very friendly and very helpful the site is second to none and the surrounding areas are breath taking I give it a 5* rating its a family site so they don't just want your money and then forget about you, the river is great for fishing and there is plenty of wild life around. A MUST for anyone that drives bye. I will definitely be going back again and again and again.

Hello Martina and Randy, We are home again from a very, very beautiful and relaxt stay in Canada. We enjoyed it so much. You and your fellow Canadians are so friendly and so helpfull! We saw the Natonal Parks Jasper, Banff, Yoho and Kootenay, but also the badlands from Drumheller and we visited the Tyrell museum and the dino's! Your campground was a good spot to sleep in the wood. Thanks again and much succes with your work. mr. Carol and mrs. Nel Haisma

Hi, we visited this campground 17th of September and it was rather quiet here. But exactly what we like. We only met Martina and she was so friendly. I received a couple of tomatoes from her. Around the motorhome the squirrels were playing and preparing the winter. We only stayed here one night, but we liked this place very much. Have fun and success!

Thanks Martina and Randy: We recently stayed with you and had the best time of all. Was wonderful to just hang out in spot 28 and play with my little guy and watch the grass grow. Can’t wait to come up for my birthday next year (still planning on July 8-13, 2011 if you’ll have us).

Hi, Martina, This is Eddy Chung (from Hong Kong). I and my family stayed in your campground a few days ago. Thank you for your great hospitality. Special thanks for making those phone calls for me. And thank you for taking the extra effort of weighting my son, very much appreciated. We went to the White water rafting in the fitness centre. It was good. The coaches were friendly and responsible. They had somebody in the canoe going alongside with the raft just in case anyone fell into water. I had never seen this extra safety procedure anywhere else. The river was good. It had two class 4, four class 3 and several class 2 and 1 water. Everybody was soaked wet. It the middle of the trip, we went to the waterfall (a few minutes walk uphill), we went behind the waterfall and then into the water in front of it. It was cold but fun. Overall, it was a good day out. We all enjoyed it very much. I would recommend it. Take care and best regards to you and Randy.
Eddy Chung.

Hi We stayed with you on 24 May. I just wanted to thank you and let you know that we thought that yours was one of the nicest sites we visited during our trip to the Rockies. I appreciated the hard work that had gone into making the trail up the hill with all the bridges although as warned the falls at the top were somewhat diminutive. All best wishes

Wonderful campground! McLure ferry offers a lovely alternative route on the other side of the river, (especially for biking) into Kamloops. Definitely will be back. J. Stevens

Fantastic place . Its quiet in the off season and bathrooms are nice and clean and secure. The Hosts are very nice people and there store is also stocked nicely. Only a 30 minute drive to and from Kamloops if you choose to camp and commute back and forth to work.

A very nice campground with an excellent clean wash facility.  The sites have enough space between them, possibility for firewood. Very kind and helpful owners, we would very much recommend this campground.

We had the marvelous pleasure of staying with Randy and Martina for four nights. Their unsurpassed hospitality will be remembered by us and our  friends for some time to come. They went above and beyond to make us welcome and the cleanliness of the facility was very much appreciated. We also highly recommend this campground and suggest you stay a couple of nights or more! Thanks again you two for helping to make our summer vacation fun and memorable!

This is a great campsite with a fun, relaxed family atmosphere. Sites are clean and well maintained with super tall pine trees throughout. Has everything you need, a playground for the kids, showers, laundry, a  little store and even wi-fi internet to mention a few. The hosts Martina and Randy were really nice and very helpful. We highly  recommend this site to everyone. Thanks again!

Hi, we had a great time this weekend. We really enjoyed all of your improvements to the campsite, from the showers to the many available ativities. Thanks for all the variety in the store (needed that!) and of course the great hospitality, we will see you soon.

05/07/2009- Juliette Schevers - Lovely campsite
What a lovely campsite. Big spaces in natural surroundings. Martina is a great host, supplying us with more wood for the campsite than we could possibly use. The children loved the big sandbox full of toys. We recommend this campsite wholeheartedly.

04/28/2009- Johan Steenhovan - Mooi plekje
Mooie camping vlak voor/na Kamloops. Zeer aardige mensen en gezellige plekken.
Voor kinderen is er een leuke speeltuin. Meer dan 1 nachtje is niet aan te raden, tenzij je iets buiten de camping gaat doen uiteraard.

04/11/2009- Margaret Exner - Fantastic Camping
Fantastic camping here. The hosts Randy and Martina are great people, very helpful and fun to be around. I recommend this place to everyone.

Der Campground ist einfach fantastisch haben eine sehr schöne familieren aufenthalt und super tolle zeit gehabt wir kommen wieder sehr zu empfehlen besonders mit Kinder. thank you for all

This campground is worth the stop and stay whether it be a one night stop over, a weekend away or a place to set your RV up for the summer months. My son's CUB group has stayed at the TEEPEE campsite for their Spring Camp (twice). As a CUB leader, Pinegrove met all the neccessities to run a successful camp. With the spacious and secure area, we were able to run all activities, sports, wilderness hike (led by Randy) and free time (playground, horseshoes& badminton games) for the kids. Martina & Randy not only welcomed our Group with excitement but also helped make sure we took the opportunity to use the Campground to its full potential.
Our family has also had the opportunity to enjoy birthday parties and family celebrations held at the outdoor Gazebo, playground and firepit. Everyone relaxed and enjoyed themselves because of the perfect set-up: trees, space, clean washrooms and a safe, fun playground! We look forward to many more visits. Martina & Randy are knowledgeable, easy to communicate with and have never-ending hospitality. Thanks to the Hobbs Family, keep up the non-stop new jobs and energy, it shows in your finished product!!

Wir erlebten eine wunderbare Zeit. Der Platz ist ordentlich und sauber. Es hat einen netten kleinen Shop, nicht zu vergessen der kleine, lustige Hund der Familie Hobbs. Der Weg zum Wasserfall ist speziell und empfehlenswert. Danke Randy, für deine Mühe, betreffend dem Unterhalt dieses Weges und auch Danke an Martina. Thank a lot for the nice time.
