Well when we found this place on Google I was so happy to find a campsite, we were driving for a long time and needed to eat and get rest. When we drove up to this place, I was so disappointed I almost just drove away. ( it looked like the campsite was in the front yard) I knocked on... More

Last week was my 2nd time staying here. The first time, the campground was full and they offered to let me stay out in the front field. No problem! Met James (he stays out front also... awesome garden, nice dog, very friendly and helpful guy!). This time I got a space in the campground and it was like most any... More

NO NO NO NO NO! This was probably the worst site I have ever stepped foot on. May God have mercy on any one's soul who decides to enter this abyss. The Old women working the registration desk couldn't top weazing among the smoke in the air and she hid her money under a place matt. Upon entering the campground,... More

My friend and I really enjoyed staying at this campground. James was especially helpful in checking us in and guiding us to our campsite. He provided information about the Santa Cruz area and gave directions to get to the bike path to reach the Boardwalk area. The ground was hard for putting stakes in, but this is due to conserving...

I found Bob's online as I was planning a trip to Santa Cruz with my grandson. Made phone reservations, talked with James, very polite and helpful... Place was well maintained and as a grandma who was camping with 9 year old grandson felt safe... Even left all of f our things there when we went to the boardwalk... There is... More

James the host was very honest. The camping are was very rough. We drove in paid for three days. We were uncomfortable with the set up and accommodations. James was honest and gave back all of the money as we chose not to stay. Thanks for that! It does have great mountain bike riding and a Costco all within a... More

To truly appreciate Bob's Pine Grove Campground, you must first understand exactly what it is. Bob's is an oasis in the smack dab middle of Santa Cruz. It is not a state park or national forest campground out in the middle of nowhere. As a traveling mountain biker who runs a guide service and destination in Pisgah Forest NC this... More

James the host was super friendly, and helpful. Sites were shaded and clean. Nice clean shower and toliets. Fair price! Highly recommend staying here. Family friendly, close to downtown boardwalk and beach. We actually extended our stay we liked it so much.

It's a little unorthodox when you first pull in, you're basically camping in Bob and Jean's backyard but it's roughly 10 acres and wooded. Some of the reviews we read made us nervous, but Bob and Jean and their niece couldn't have been nicer!! The tents are no closer then any other campsite, bathroom is well lighted and very clean!...

This place was so scary that my wife and I left and camped in a church parking lot AFTER we paid the guy $30. He was so creepy that I didn't even want to ask him for a refund. He didn't let me see or pick a site unless I paid beforehand. He knew that if I saw the sites... More
