Detail map of Riverside camp ground
Riverside campground is located beside the Old Ausable Channel. It provides electrical, non-electrical, pull-through sites, and roofed accommodation sites. Riverside Campground is within close walking distance to the Park Store, Rentals, and the Visitor Centre. Area 1 is open year round. Area 3 is radio-free for those looking for a quiet campsite.
Dunes Campground is within easy walking distance of the beach, outdoor amphitheater and Visitor Centre. Dunes Campground provides a mix of electric, non-electric, pop-up trailer and tenting sites from May to October. Area 4 of Dunes Campground is designated pet-free camping. Always use designated trails and boardwalks to access the beach, Pinery’s dunes are extremely sensitive to human impacts.
Burley campground, open from mid-June to Labour Day, is the furthest away from the main gate. Sites in Burley are nestled between older pines and are in close walking distance of the beach. These campsites are perfect for those campers that do not need electricity or pull-through sites.
