Pinery Provincial Park has so much to do you won’t know where to start, but if we had to help we’d suggest the beaches!

For 10 KM along Lake Huron, visitors can enjoy sandy beaches to relax, swim and walk along.

While you’re enjoying the sand, be sure to also check out the Oak Savanna and Coastal Dune Ecosystems.

According to Ontario Parks, “Pinery’s landmass was created over the past 6,000 years by sand dune formations, resulting in an impressive coastal sand dune complex spanning over 9.5 km of the Lake Huron shoreline.”

In addition to coastal sand dunes, Pinery is also famous for its Oak Savanna forest communities.

Explore the forests of the Pinery and you’ll find thousands (if not millions) of lifeforms!

The park boasts over 320 species of birds, over 850 species of plants and trees, a diversity of mammals, reptiles and amphibians, and an unknown quantity of insect species.

End your day at Pinery Provincial Park with an epic sunset.

Ontario Parks states that the sunsets are ranked by National Geographic as among the “Top 10 Best in the World.”

Well, we’re sold! Book a day pass/vehicle pass here and enjoy your visit, Ontario!
