Pinery

Car Camping

Riverside Campground is located beside the provincially significant Old Ausable Channel and has electrical, non-electrical and pull-through sites. Amenities such as water taps, comfort stations and laundry facilities are located within each of the four areas of Riverside Campground. Area 1 Riverside is also open year-round for those that want to enjoy Pinery in all four seasons.

Burley Campground, open from May to September, is the furthest away from the main gate, but is well worth the extra drive! The sites in Burley are nestled between older pines and within close walking distance of the beach. These campsites are perfect for those campers that do not need electricity or pull-through sites.

Dunes Campground is within easy walking distance of the beach, outdoor amphitheatre and Visitor Centre. This campground provides a mix of electrical, pop-up trailer and tent sites from May to September.

Please be sure to always use designated boardwalks to access the beach as our dune system is extremely fragile and sensitive to human impacts.

Dog-Free Camping

Area 4 Dunes Campground is designated as pet-free camping and includes such amenities as water taps, comfort stations and laundry facilities.

Group Camping

Organized groups and classes wishing to camp in Pinery can choose one of 10 group camping sites. These large sites are located adjacent to the day-use areas and are easy walking distance to the beach. Group camping is designed for tents only with parking space for six cars and one bus. Each site will accommodate up to 35 campers. Campers will find running water, a cold water sink, vault toilets near their site and a fire ring and picnic tables right on their site.
