My husband and I have been going here for the past 6 years, and he has been camping here since his childhood (over 20 years ago). We love it here. Typically we stay in the Dunes area, however this summer we spent a weekend in the Riverside 4 area (#811).
I'm almost hesitant to write this review mainly because it is already a popular place to camp, and for it to get any busier and lose it's charm would be a shame.
But, it also deserves recognition. There is so much to do here (if you want to) or you can simply relax on your site and do whatever you want. Over the years, we've rented bikes, rented canoe on the river or simply relaxed on what we believe is the best beach in Ontario.
The comfort stations (flush toilets, showers) are the cleanest that I've been to in comparison to other campground (both private and provincial), they have recycling and garbage facilities, and water taps throughout the grounds. At the end of the day, they do their part in providing the facilities, it's up to the campers to respect their surroundings.
Another great thing about the Pinery, for those staying for longer times, if you need a change of scenery, Grand Bend is just a quick drive.
Over the years, we've never had an issue with the quality of the sites and will continue to go here for a long time. We had a couple friends join us and they haven't been camping before and thought it was an amazing area.
