Didnt get a chance to camp here, but we stayed close by and came to the beach here. Love it. Its a little rustic, almost like a cottage feel. There is a lot f driving to get there, but its really nice through the trees.

Our campsite was across from a huge family of asian people (10+ people on one site) who insisted on doing their dishes at the water tap (which was right across from our site) for 45 minutes at a time. The entire place around the water tap was absolutely flooded. They did this about every 30 mins until 1 AM and... More

We arrived early in the week and were surprised at how quiet the park is at night. Compared to Sandbanks it's much less party party party. Also less of the fashion show teenage trolling atmosphere. Just don't go on the long weekend if you want any sort of quiet or don't like crowds. Nothing ear plugs don't fix here. The... More

We love the Pinery, so much to do, our kids love it there! Great Hikes, Biking and the beach is the best! Buy your Firewood outside of the park, better deal and dryer. Grand Bend is great, but getting a bit tired,great for ice cream. Love this park, already looking forward to next year!

I have never been disappointed with my trips to the Pinery Provincial Park. The park itself is huge with many hiking, biking and running opportunities. The sunsets are stunning and the beach goes on for many kilometers. Most of our afternoons are spent lounging on the beach and swimming. There is quite a bit to do at the Pinery -... More

This park is huge and very clean. We have been camping there for past 4 years with family and friends. The best sites are the one close to the beach. Washrooms are very clean and park is safe for children with park rangers driving by often. Make sure to go to the beach in the evening for amazing sunset shots...... More

I just came back from Pinery, it used to be my favorite camp site, affordable and beautiful. Not yet anymore. For one night I paid $56, when in the States you pay only $15 for an amazing place by the ocean. If I compare Pinery with what I had last year it is depressing. I was at 11 o’clock at... More

Its a great package at pinery ...To start with the drive from first checkpoint to your campsite is really nature-istic ... loved it ... They have canoeing , kayaking, peddle etc... for water activity at the ausable channel. The trail besides ausable channel is worthy hiking .. Again the drive to the beach is also very good. Campsites are also... More

The sites were semi-secluded which was nice and although we didn't use all the facilities they did have an on-site restaurant and boat rentals. The beach was not within close proximity to the campsite and with young kids, it's not a close walk. Unfortunately, they have limited parking spots at the beach so either way you have to make a...
