Pinery is one of the nicest parks I have ever been to. The campsite we got was a ways from the bathrooms, showers and water tap, but was by no means out of reach, and the bugs were minimal (which is a huge plus for me). Our crew also went on a bike ride through the Savannah trail and it... More

We have been camping here with our kids for years now. We enjoy the 14km bike trail a lot. The beaches are great and clean. We really like that a lot of the sites are private, we usually stay in Riverside area 4. The washrooms and showers are clean. There is bike and canoe rentals. People were fishing and catching...

I've been camping at Pinery for the last 20+ years. It's a wonderful, fun place with lots of great campgrounds and fun activities. There are lots of great trails and the staff is always friendly. The bathrooms and showers are clean and modern. I have nothing negative to say about this park

Excellent bike path, we took the Savanah Trail and most of it was a 50% paved path dedicated to bikes. Through the forest, it was lovely.

The Pinery Park is beautiful, clean and very safe. It feels like you go to the beach not camping. The comfort stations are clean and the beach is very good for spending the whole day there. The towns around the park are good for short trips and exploring.

My Flat coat, family and I love the Pinery. Awesome off leash beach (beach 1 and 2) and so much to do! It's a year round park - you can also rent year or cabins but the yurts are not appropriate for dogs. Definitely a 5 star park... Lots of boating options too - padfl, kayaks, canoes, SUPs, water bikes... More

We visit Pinery every year early in the spring – it’s our first camping trip of the year. We still have only covered a fraction of the trail system in this huge park. There is so much to do and see here. We love the Riverside Trail, as well as the Hickory and Bittersweet Trails. The Carolinian trail is a... More

We have slowly been going around a number of provincial parks, trying to find that one park that we love the most....so far, this is it. Ive read some reviews where people have complained about the bugs. Firstly, lets pause and think about their complaining about bugs....... Considering its a park......then I would think, bugs would be expected. I mean,... More
