The Grove Boat-In Campground is accessible by boat from Laurel River Lake or by trail from Grove Campground. The campground sits at the end of two peninsulas separated by a small bay.
Most campsites are near the water's edge with boat moorings near each site. The sites are spaced apart and provide a sense of seclusion. These campsites are favored by boat owners who wish to keep their boats near their campsite.
Grove Marina is a full-service marina located within 1/2-mile of the campground. The marina is privately-owned and operated under a special-use permit with the U.S. Forest Service. Rental boats, camping and fishing supplies, fishing licenses, and detailed maps of the lake are available at the marina. The marina is open year round.
The Grove Boat Ramp is located at the marina.
