A few individuals have informed the Ministry of their intent to prevent access and take possession of Pinery Provincial Park.  Ontario Parks will continue talks with the individuals in an effort to resolve the matter.

The park is closed to the public for camping and day use opportunities until further notice. Public safety remains our first priority and will guide our operation of the park.

Please continue to check back for updates.

Wildlife monitoring cameras are in use; any photos containing images of members of the public are deleted.  Please contact Mark Custers (, 519-243-8501) if you would like more information.

Personal information is collected under the authority of Section 29 of the Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves Act.
