Activity Programs Help You Discover The Park:

  • Bike Hikes - Enjoy a 1 1/2-2 hour bike ride along the bicycle trail, exploring and learning about park environments. Naturalists will point out things along the way that might otherwise go unnoticed.
  • Evening Programs - As the night quietly descends on Pinery and the sunsets over Lake Huron, the outdoor theater is the place to go to if you're looking to make your visit more rewarding. A variety of skits, films, talks, and musical performances are presented at the park's Outdoor Theater throughout the summer months.
  • Conducted Walks - Park Naturalists lead leisurely, 1 - 2 hour hikes to help you discover Pinery and its special features. Themes may include butterflies, birds or even creepy crawlers, while more general topics explore the need for fire in the Oak Savanna or the struggle of life on a sandy dune.
  • Ooze n' Gooze - Join the Naturalist staff every Wednesday afternoon for an hour of aquatic discovery. Get your hands wet as you venture through the marvel of life that thrives in the Old Ausable Channel.

Don't worry about sharing a beach with other people; Pinery offers you 9 beaches to choose from. All of the beaches give you the option of bringing your home on wheels with you, whether you plan to stay for the day or drive home right after a nice dip in the water.

Every beach has their own washroom and change room facilities within walking distance. They offer two pet-friendly beaches that allow you to bring your furry friends with you, as long as they're well behaved and you clean up after them.
