We took advantage of some spectacular weather in early November and this was one of the few parks still open for camping in Ontario this time of year. The Pinery is open year round and offer yurts and a few cabins that are heated and have BBQs if you bring a tank. We camped in an RV and found the... More

We had to be content with day trip inside this park only. All campgrounds get fully booked up months in advance, so shall try to do it next year. The park itself is on a scenic spot. Nice beach - albeit for a swim we preferred the main one in the town or a private little spot about 12 kms... More

Lots of trails, excellent biking trails (paved and unpaved) along with designated biking trail. Main biking trail is 13km's. Canoeing and Kayaking the channel is amazing. This place offers the most to do for an outdoor experience. Perfect for families. They also have an icecream shop and a small restaurant. Park is clean and well maintained. There's also bike rentals... More

Beautliful Provincial Park right on Lake Huron. Great walking trails and a long winding bike trail. The beaches are amazing and so large it never seems crowded.

Coming over from Michigan we made reservations for a 1st time visit a couple days before our trip - not realizing that this was the Canada Thanksgiving weekend. Forecast was beautiful - and that turned out to be true. Very full campgrounds! Overall - park is beautiful and I have to give a lot of credit to the Park's commission... More

A day trip took us out to Pinery, and the weather was fantastic. We claimed a spot on one of the many dog beaches and enjoyed our day with the waves, warm water and sun. The park itself was extremely busy the day we went, it took about 45 minutes just to get through the front gate. This issue aside,... More

Off season when we visited so almost nobody here. I can imagine spectacular scenery when the leaves change colour. Enjoyable visit. We stopped at beach areas and the park is not overly developed. A nice quiet drive.

What a beautiful big site in Burley area site number 1125. Just walk up the hill you are at the beach. The comfort station is just 2 min walk. The site is huge can fit 3 tents easily. Really private that other campers will be jealous. If you can set this site you will love it a Pinery. Very nice... More

We stayed here for 12 days in July 2015, and I must admit that we have mixed feelings about this park. On the critique side, the bathrooms were always dirty - except for the ones by the beaches, and we found most trails to be inaccessible due to the overgrowth of Poison Ivy. We are both aware that poison ivy... More

Went here for a mid-week camping trip with my wife and our young-adult daughter. I had made reservations a few weeks earlier. We have a 26 foot 5th wheel trailer. When we arrived we discovered a party was already set up on our site. This party appeared to have made an honest mistake. Their tag indicated they were to be... More
