Let me start off by saying this Park is HUGE. It took us a couple of days to get the hang of the roads without getting lost. We went on the long weekend in September and stayed for four nights. Our campsite was in the Riverside Campground, Area 3. The site we had was huge, we had two large cars...

We love The Pinery ! We like to go during the quieter times to avoid the partying . That's because we prefer the quiet kind of camping. Lovely place , love the beach, love everything about it ! We will be back for sure !

My family has been going to Pinery on Labor Day Weekend for years, though we have recently switched to a later weekend in September. This is a beautiful park, with a unique ecosystem and beach. The visitor's center is smaller, but has some great birding views- my young nephew was very impressed at his close-up view of a wild turkey...

What a great time we had as first timers! My only suggestion to people planning a stay is to research your campsite. Some are pretty small and corner on main routes. Ours was great though, close to bathroom is a Huge plus!

Great place to rest, relax and recharge your batteries and slow down. Campsites are large and spacious. If you are lucky to get one close to the beach, bonus, otherwise you will be hiking or driving. Bathrooms are pretty gross, and smelly, but hey its camping. Take plenty of bug spray. Grand bend is a 15 minute drive with grocery...

So we went camping at Pinery, Sandbanks, and Awenda Provincial Parks this 2016 summer. We are a young Toronto family with a 3 year old, and a 1 year old. This review is of Pinery site #797 Driving- It was a good 4 hours from Toronto. Within the park, you must drive to the beach or park stores for wood,...

Today was our first trip to the Pinery Dog Beach! Only 17.00 to park was a great deal considering how much fun we had! The beach was clean and the water was clean and clear! Other dog owners on the beach were friendly and it wasn't over crowded! I would recommend any dog lover to take their dog(s) and family...

My husband used to holiday here as a young child. We camped here in July and he said he wouldn't recognize the place. There used to be large sand dunes and deep beaches but they have disappeared. Water is warm and clear in the lake. The campsite was nice and private and the washrooms were clean and modern. However, the...
