  • LOVE THIS PLACE!! The water is warm clean and so pretty. The beach is amazing and even the dog beach is super clean. There are tons of things for kids to do. And also the sunsets are so pretty. If you like to camp you will love this place
  • I love this park. There is so much to do for everyone. I go mainly for the beach. Long shore line and most visitors are respectful of others. There is always that why guy who thinks it's ok to feed the seagulls. Over the years the shore has become quite rocky, but if you wear water shoes to get past that the water is great. Lake has plenty of room for everyone
  • Best camping setup IMHO. Great sites, great selection of things to do. Stayed there since 2002 at least 10 times, and want to go again! Love the hiking trails and the bike rides. The beach is good, and the water goes shallow for a long distance, very safe for kids to play.
  • We had a very peaceful and invigorating stroll out to the Lake Huron shoreline on the Cedar Trail. You can't beat Pinery for well groomed trails, scenic vistas, and communing with nature. The oak savannah ecosystem and dunes are must sees. The camping is great too.
  • One of Ontario's most beautiful gems. Great spot for epic sunsets on the beach and nestled between forrest and sand dunes. 10 minute drive to Grand Bend and about a 35 minute drive from London. Be sure to book your spot early, this park fills up fast. For good reason!
