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.

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!
