The vibe at Pine Glen Recreation Area
Drop some Pine Glen Recreation Area knowledge on us.
First time at Pine Glen and we loved it! Each campsite has a fire pit, picnic table, and tent pad. Rustic, primitive site but there is a "vault" potty area if you choose to use it. We camped during the week and there were plenty of sites to choose from. It could be busy on weekends and holidays. Very long drive to get to the site but worth it! Very beautiful area! There are bears in the area so prepare for that, bring your own wood, and bring your own water. They have water pumps at the site but they no longer work. Cell phone reception is hit or miss and there is a ton of wildlife in the area. We'll be back!
So the good with this campground also lends itself to the bad. There is a lot of space in each of the camping sites but this openness and flatness lends itself to people hauling in everything and the kitchen sink to set up "camp". We had everything from radios, clanking horse shoes for hours on end, babies, chainsaws, and dogs making all kinds of racket. It's an absolutely beautiful spot with tons of great canopy but little to no cover in between all of the sites. Outside of a holiday weekend I imagine it would be quite peaceful. It's adjacent to the pinhoti trail so hiking is abundant!
