This was a one-night stop for us. Gave us a chance to swim at one of the lovely beaches on Lake Huron one mile away and cool off. Wifi was very good in the transient field because it was between two wifi hot spots - one in the office and one in the wifi hub building. Pool was busy with the hot weather. Only 30 amp service available on the transient sites. This park has a golf course! Not a golfer but it looked well kept. Got some inexpensive gas at the Indian Reserve on the other side of the road. - jbrucemagon

Mostly seasonal with a few transient sites. Access roads are very narrow (single lane for all but entry lane which is maybe a lane and a quarter) starting with asphalt and quickly transitioning to gravel. Other than the narrowness of the access roads, big rig access is adequate. Transient sites are grass pullthrus some with only 30A so look carefully before selecting a site if you want 50A. Slight slope on the site to the front. Very noticeable manure smell overnight, but not during the day.
Wifi is pay for service, decent signal strength, but did not use. Verizon (Bell) 3-4 bars, did not check speed. T-Mobile (Telus) LTE 4-5 bars with decent speed. Full recycle on site. It's a good overnight close to the border, but we're not sure we'd stay here again. - SeaLandSkyPhoto

Convenient overnight spot. Mostly seasonals, but about 10 sites are for transients. The place is associated with a motel, but it is really a full-service campground as well. Our site was very nice and quite easy to get into.
We would very likely stay here again. - wandrr

This campground is associated with a motel operation, but the campground itself is quite well run. It is clean, accessible to big rigs, and appears to have modern facilities. Most sites are allocated to seasonal campers, but the transient sites are somewhat separate. The laundry is clean and inexpensive. Our satellite view was excellent, as are almost all the transient sites. Our rate includes a discount for a seven day stay, but even at the full rate, the price is very good. The transient sites are far from the nearby road, so everything was quiet. The only thing keeping this place from being a 10 is the large seasonal population. We will stay here again if in the area. - wandrr

We make The Pinery a yearly destination, in both the Summer and the Fall for a week each time. Talk about two different parks. First off, The Pinery is a terrific park, summer or fall. In the summer it is full, it's a very popular destination point for both Canadian and US campers. Yes, i'm sure the US folks are shell shocked by the price, but with the US Dollar kicking our Loonies @$$, it makes it reasonable, plus, i'm sure they notice as soon as they enter the campground, unlike most State Parks, campers are not piled on top of one another. They try as hard as possible to preserve the natural aspects of this park. There is lots to do in the summer, the once incredible beach is somewhat returning as lake levels are slightly diminishing. The Ausable River running through the heart of this park not only makes for fun and adventure at the canoe/kayak rentals, but fishing and some great riverside campsites. There are lots of activities going on in the summer, and are always posted at the bathrooms. Speaking of bathrooms, Ontario Parks replaced all the facilities some years back, so all are new, including the outhouses, which are clean with flush toilets. Bathrooms are cleaned two to three times a day. So time your showers and you get a clean one. Fall is incredible at the Pinery .... once school is back, the crowds are gone during the week, and this is when you can appreciate the pure wonders of this park, it's natural beauty. Weekends are still busy in the fall, especially in late October, when they have their Halloween Weekend, and their Road Rally weekend. The Park has a very nice Nature Center, a well stocked Park Store, and across the parking lot, some of the best ice-cream you will ever have. We camped for one night last weekend, as Mother Nature was still giving us some weather in the 6o's here in Ontario. For November, there were quite a few people. Lots of tent campers, die hard campers who aren't ready to call it a season. - Jaycojay

We try to go to the Pinery every summer. It is one of the largest and more popular Provincial Parks in Ontario. It has all the necessities you need in a Park. Most sites are spacious and have a degree of privacy. There is a dump station on the way out of the park.
The beach is nice. The fishing is good for the kids. There is bike rentals along with canoes and kayaks. There are plenty of good hiking trails in the Park. The town of Grand Bend is close by. - crunch27

Typical Provincial Park. Over priced for the service they provide. Their water was shut off for the year so we paid almost $40.00 for electricity only. No Wifi service. Lady at the front gate was friendly. - 69636

The Park is 90% seasonal. There is a beautiful pool and water play area at front for those that like pools. The roads to overnight spots are thru tight lanes of seasonal site. We had to exit our truck and ask locals to move their golf carts etc to get thru. Seasonal sites are run down and messy. No shade on overnight sites - there are young trees planted - 1 on each site at front but they would take 10-20 years to be shade. There are trees / bushes behind overnight sites that block satellite signal but are too sparse for privacy. Lots of mosquitos in that border. Other side of those bushes is more seasonal sites. Check in is a odd 3 hours window only (1-4 pm at peak season). This is really inconvenient - after hours check in has to be previously arranged and if your racing nearby its next to impossible to know when you can leave to move to this park. Also site was not level as promised. Tap for water (and cable - we didn't try because we didn't have an adaptor - there is a co-ax male end of cable exiting the ground at the tap?) is at very back of site - meaning you need a 40 ft plus hose for water or park at the back section of the site (our rig's rear window was in the bushes). The sewer is also fairly far back so you need a long sewer hose if you want to park at a reasonable distance from the bushes. Sites are wide and deep in this section - there around 6 sites in a row here with an field across. Back in only. Wi-fi internet is a joke - you connect but never get any speed to even google a restaurant. Out of 3 days of trying I managed to get online successfully for 20 min at 6am on Tuesday only. On a small note the gate keypad is so low you have to exit your vehicle if its taller than a mini cooper to enter the code. The Fire ring had garbage in it when we arrived. There is a fry shack near pool. Won't Return. - ciara

Family owned, friendly park with trout pond, winding brook, recreation hall, store, picnic area, lots of Canada geese, & permanent RVs. Very small playground for the kids, but nothing else for them to do. Older summer residents take wonderful care of their lots. Daily lots are in the back under the trees. Couldn't get out with our satellite, but got 6+ local stations (analog - NOT digital!) Wi-fi is free & reception & bandwidth is good. Price includes HST (taxes). Actual posted rate is $30.00 per night. So-so rating is for lack of facilities for a 'destination' park, which it seems most of the campers are looking for. We found it a wonderfully quiet, relaxing park. - Merryann

We spent the night there on our way to Niagara Falls. The park host was very helpful. There were a lot of seasonals there. We'd definitely stay there again. - 1dinky

As previously stated, near the interstate - and accessible - but we didn't hear the noise. Good jump off to visit the another part of North America (Canada). Paid cash because they have a 2.5 % charge for credit card. Some nicely placed flowers throughout park. We were in a class B motorhome (no slides nor toad) and stayed in electric/water site - Absolutely ZERO TV reception! We would stay here again for a single night but not longer. There were many people who reserved for several months at a time. - KAZIMIRA

The good news is the park is very close to the Interstate and the Bluewater Bridge to Canada, making it very convenient for an overnight stop before crossing the border. The bad news is the park is very close to the Interstate and the Bluewater Bridge to Canada, making for constant road noise 24/7. That issue aside, the park appears to be well kept up, and the woman that checked us in was very pleasant and accommodating. Our premium site had very good 50 amp electric and a well placed sewer connection. The water spigot was one of four on a single riser servicing four sites, and required about 35' of hose to reach it. The site was a bit closer to the neighboring sites than we like though. The park WiFi was quite good at about 5 meg down and 3 meg up. Our Verizon signal was excellent as well. All in all, we felt this was a good overnight or short term stay location, but a bit to close and noisy for a longer term stay. - NYDutch
