Given all the hype about provincial parks being free this year we were shocked when we were told it was $17 to enter the park. We just wanted to have a short look around and it didn't matter....we were told it was one rate....period. Turned...More

This park is absolutely beautiful! Each site has some privacy. We stayed in Riverside Area 2. This area was very quiet even though the camp seemed to have many people there. The trees are amazing! I cannot say enough about this park!!

Considering the weather was not great. There were lots to do lots of little markets. Goodrich was not far . The park is great I only go there in off season because it is just too busy in summer.

Took the 12km drive to the beach area. Off season it is just a beautiful spot to walk and enjoy the view. There are hiking and biking trails throughout.

Having gone to the Pinery numerous times as a child, I was happy to witness the preservation of its natural beauty when I returned 15 years later. The campsites are well kept, and the Ontario Parks website provides a good overview of each site, so...More

If you like to hike a few trails (time allowed vary from half-hour to one-hour each) and bike for hours. This is the place for you. This is a very popular Provincial Park for more reasons than Hiking and Biking. Check out the website for...More

Nice, clean, scenic, well maintained. Great for camping with kids. Anyone rating this a terrible should not be camping ;) Camping sites a little smaller than other provincial parks. That’s the only reason for a four and not a five rating.

Nice park. 1500 + sites. Stayed in Riverside site with 5th wheel. Poison ivy is rampant at least where we stayed. Need to get control over it as I will not go back as the break out of poison ivy was terrible.

People some times mix up June Bugs for cockroaches. I've seen the June Bugs, but not any cockroaches! I believe if there were any cockroaches, then somebody would have had them in their trailer! Honestly, haven't seen a one!

Beach 3 has the closest parking to the beach, you can actually park right at the top of the dunes above the beach and just a short walk down some stairs to the beach.
