The interior of this park is pretty regular, with walking trails through the normal forests found in the province (though maybe less so in this region.) The park might not look like much before the beach. Beach goers will be disappointed, but beach walkers will not, as the beach is narrow but beautiful and a great place to watch sunsets.

One of my favourite places to camp. We come as a family and always have a great time. Love bringing my dog to the dog beach. Highly recommend this place for any type of camping!

Your average provincial park far enough away from the grandbend strip that you are not getting drunk teens. Instead this is a relaxing park to let go of steam and relax

The Pinery is an extraordinary natural paradise -- white sand beaches, magnificent dune systems, and an oak savannah ecosystem that is rarer than the rain forest. Lovely in November when it's not busy.

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

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
