An iconic piece of Pickerel River history is getting a makeover. This spring, the vintage waterfront building and fish cleaning house is getting a complete makeover. The Chambers family have owned and operated Pine Grove for over 50 years and this building was here previous to that. Boaters have used our Texaco sign as a point of reference helping them navigate the 40 miles of waterway. Don't worry...some things get better with age and just like Billy Chambers we are keeping it (Both the Sign & Mr. Chambers!

Due to the extensive waterfront renovation, we will be closed for May & early June. Reservations that have already booked with us in May/June you are confirmed and will have the place mostly to yourself this year! Fish Cleaning during the rebuild will likely be under the gazebo while we work to complete the new fish hut.
Thank you all for supporting Pine Grove. We genuinely appreciate the friendship and are looking forward to making your stay with us memorable.

BOAT RENTAL CHANGE for 2021
***We do ask that guests have a boating license and that they bring it with them, we will have you fill out a rental form and go over safe operation with you.***
We hope everyone is having a great summer so far! We are currently fully booked until September, but are now taking bookings for Fall and for 2021. Any last minute availability will be posted to our Facebook page. No booking is confirmed until we receive your deposit.
There has been some confusion regarding sheets & towels. Due to industry guidelines we will not be supplying sheets & towels. The beds will have a mattress cover, a pillow and the top quilt. You will need to bring, pillow case, fitted sheet & flat sheet with you...or if you prefer a sleeping bag.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, but we are doing our best to keep guests, staff & ourselves safe.
Thank you for your patience & understanding.
Are you ready? Are you sitting down? Good! Cuz I have some news for you!
After months of confusion & uncertainty we now have the green light to open!
We are very happy to now be able to take reservations. Bookings are by the week, Saturday-Saturday.
There will be policies and procedures that we have to follow, and we most likely will not be able to supply linens at this time...however the ability to welcome guests back to Pine Grove has lifted our spirits today...and likely yours too!
Thinking of my parents today, and the joy they uncovered in 1971 when they "found" Pine Grove Camp, while searching for a cottage to purchase. After bottoming out their car on a road so rough it was more of a trail, they came to the Grove...and the rest is history. They did not set out to be pioneers in the industry, but my father has poured his heart and soul into every aspect of the property, supported by my Mom he gave back to Industry as President of NOTO & the local business association & on the Northern Committee of OTMP and he has dedicated his life to welcoming guests to Pine Grove, making sure their stay is warm & memorable. My father instilled this pride of place in me, the love of the land so deep that it becomes your heartbeat, grateful for every sunrise and every moment spent connected to the wilderness...committed to a life welcoming others and sharing the connection to land & family.
I carry this tradition onwards & into a new world where what we offer in Northern Ontario will be a much sought after solace to people haggard and stressed by challenges of city living.
49 years of the Grove, and while the current situation is crushing...in the future shines a light.
A right of passage. Iconic Canadian Cottage Vacations. Catching frogs, fishing, family time, board games and lifetime friendships. The North is healing. It brings people together. We need that right now. #tourismmatters #portloring

We definitely live in new & challenging times in 2020 thanks to Covid-19!
It is essential that we all keep on top of the important safety measures and social distancing needed to stop the spread of coronavirus.
Pine Grove is currently crafting a plan for a safe re-opening scenario later on this spring, however we do anticipate some challenges, updates and changes as the pandemic restrictions are eased by the Federal & Provincial governments.
Information changes by the day and we are currently in a hopeful state of flux.
We do anticipate continued social distancing measures once we re-open, so please expect there to be some changes to operating procedures and guest activities as we adjust to this "new normal". The measures that we take, will be to focus on the health, comfort & safety of our guests.
Please check back for updates and visit our Facebook page for the most up to date information.
Also remember that Pine Grove and the Great Canadian Wilderness of Port Loring will be here and waiting for you when we are able to bust out of our social isolation bubble!
Health, Happiness, Hope & Friendship!

Your friendship and business is very important to us and we look forward to having you stay with this us soon as the world starts turning again.
