I have only learned how to camp in the last few years. I was so scared to try it. Thankfully one of my first experiences was at the Pinery....and I have been going back ever since. The beach here is magnificent, as lovely as any beach in Hawaii, Mexico or the Dominican. The washrooms are always clean, the showers have... More

My friends and I love going to the Pinery, especially on days where we know many people are headed to the beach. The Pinery is hidden away and takes a bit more effort to get to, but you never have to worry about finding parking and a nice spot for yourself on one of its many beaches. We especially enjoy...

This hidden park is perfect for every type of get together. The option of where to stay is more then accommodating. I was very pleased with the washroom facilities. You don't find a lot of parks that have proper running washrooms and washrooms that are clean. The size of the spots are amazingly huge. I felt the distance between campsites... More

There are lots of good nature things to see at the Pinery, however for a camping trip at a Provincial Park ... definitely not my style. The sites are VERY close together (and know for some that works as camping - not me) ... the tree canopy is high so there is a din of sound trapped by the trees

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
