Amazing views.

This place has some great hiking trails. Lovely camping spot to get away from the city. You absolutely have to see by the waters edge. Breath taking!!

We went you the Pinery for the first time. It was awesome. So much to do. Paddle boats, the beach, the visitors center, trails, programs. It was really lovely. The only complaint I have is they don't empty the garbage often enough. Also the park was completely full when we went so the beach was a wee crowded but even... More

Came to PPP with wife and kids. First, make it to any beach before sunset and watch the sunset. No excuses! It's a must. Secondly, buy the wood just outside the park, north for 30 seconds. 3 all you can fill bags of hard wood for $15. Thirdly, buy food for 1/2 the days you stay and go into Grand... More

Visited the park last week, and was very impressed with the beautiful, clean, soft Sandy beach. Less crowed then the public beach and with the dunes very scenic!!!

Went to the Pinery recently for hiking and swimming. We chose the Cedar trail for hiking, which was well maintained and a decent distance, but we didn't really see much in the way of wildlife. We then went down to the beach which we were told was sandy. Maybe somewhere else, but not where we were. There were rocks on... More

This is a great place to skim, kayak and camp, lots of things to do for kids, families and couples. I went with a friend and our kids and had a great time. Lots of exploring to do here.

This is a beautiful park with lots to do! We rented canoes and paddled down the river, went to the beach and hiked a few trails. The portion of our trip that really stood out, however, was the visit to the Visitor Centre. The staff there were knowledgeable and extremely helpful. They identified everything that I had taken pictures of... More

Its nice park, beautiful nature but too long ride to beaches. All beaches were deep sand with not good access. All were dune beaches without shade. Day users wasrooms were the durtiest we ever sow and far from beaches. Water was not clean that day and filled with tiny fishes. Wouldnt return bec there are many beautiful parks like Killbeary...

We have enjoyed the Pinery for many years, the past few with a pop up tent trailer. Reservations are always tough if you're picky but as long as you time the online reservation deadlines with your actual vacation dates you're good to go. The Dunes area seems to have been upgraded as far as signage and showers etc... Our site... More
