Camped here and day-tipped for many years. Fantastic park for many reasons. Stunning sand dunes create a beautiful beach often only found in the Caribbean...you'll be surprise what you see when you get over the bluff. A large number of hiking trails, varying in length and difficultly. Well carved our bike trails and a number of other activities including boat... More

I drove to the park from Toronto. I enjoyed the drive as I like country roads. The park is big and offers a lot for someone seeking photography. Streets are wide and the direction signs are plentiful. Its easy to get lost. But follow the signs and you will be fine. The park is very clean, secure and family friendly.... More

We purchased a season pass for this park this year for the first time. Went at least seven times. Love their dog only beaches as we got a puppy in March. She loved the water and we loved the privacy and sometimes the sociability of this beach. Beach number two is our choice for the atmosphere and decking leading to... More

We have camped at The Pinery for over three years now and still love it every single time. It is the best campground for kids. Plenty of camp sites that are near the lake, or within a short walk. The campsites are very clean and large. The campground has a ton of things to do from fishing, canoeing, kayaking, bike... More

Pinery Provincial park is minutes away from Grand Bend and has a nice beach front though it can get quite busy during the summer season. Watch out for the weather, can play spoil sport with your beach plans with gusty, cold winds. Park fees are quite steep to get into the park to access the beach, Pinetree road at the... More

My wife stayed near the Sand Dunes only a short walk from the lake. It was a fantastic and relaxing trip. The lots are huge with plenty of privacy. If you enjoy camping than it is definitely worth taking a week and setting up a tent. I can't wait to go back!

The park is at it's best when the summer has come to an end and the fall weather is upon us. The crowds have gone home and the diehards, the true campers, are here. Nights are dark, and can be chilly, but a warm fire sets the night aglow, and warms the heart and soul. This week, mother nature brought... More
