We are planning to open on May 21, 2021 to our seasonal campers (all seasonal sites are taken and we are now accepting a wait list). We will be following similar COVID-19 policies in 2021 as the 2020 season. We look forward to welcoming our transient campers and cottagers in the summer 2021. Due to COVID, we have suspended tenting reservations at this time. Amenities will be restricted as set out in the COVID-19 waivers. We will update any changes as further guidelines are provided from the Ontario government. Sorry, NO VISITORS permitted at this time. We will advise seasonal campers once we are able to open to “immediate family visitors” . The Code must be followed to ensure that we all stay safe and do not engage in activities that contravene any Provincial or Federal Government and Health regulations so that we may remain open all season. The Code is over and above our normal campground rules which still apply. If you have a fever or flu-type symptoms, stay home. If you have tested positive for COVID-19, are a presumptive case, or have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive or is a presumptive case, we request that you do not attempt to enter the campground. Please remain at your residence until you have been cleared by your local health department and/or you have finished your self-isolation of 14 days. Our office is closed to the public; no walk-ins. All queries can be directed to us via email or by calling us.

About Us

Perfect place to leave your footprints in the sand

Welcome to Beaches at Pinecone Park situated on the beautiful, sandy shores of Round Lake near Killaloe, Ontario. We the owners and hosts, Todd and Scherry, are very happy to have you visit our site!

From a very young age, we both developed a life-long passion for the lake as we both were fortunate to be able to call Round Lake our summer homes while growing up. Scherry’s parents are a part of the park’s strong history. Scherry’s Dad, Garry Risto, a masonry contractor was travelling through the area in the early 80’s and spotted a new house build going up and stopped in to see if park developer, Roy Kuehl, needed a contractor to brick the house. From that point Scherry’s family started camping as seasonal campers and never left. Todd also grew up at Round Lake from a young age and spent most of his summers at his families’ property on the lake.

Todd and Scherry met in 1991 and from that time onward they have both created fond memories of the lake and the park. In 2009 Todd and Scherry entered a partnership to purchase Pinecone Park at which time we changed the name to Beaches at Pinecone Park. The park has some wonderful history that goes back to when the lakefront cottage was built by the Burke family in the 1930’s (first Optometrist in Killaloe during 1920’s). We are proud to be part of the history in the area and hope to be able to share our property and to continue to bring life long memories to many families in the years to come and into our retirement.

Our private, family owned and operated campground is located just 30 minutes from Pembroke. We offer 550 feet of beautiful sandy beach with scenic views of one of the cleanest lakes in the Ottawa Valley. The lake is fed by the Bonnechere and Sherwood Rivers.

As you look across the lake it is 5 kilometres to Foy’s Provincial Park directly across on the other side. The lake is 7 ½ kilometres long and the deepest spot is 180 feet deep! With a sandy bottom that slopes down gradually, it is a favourite for many swimming, boating and fishing enthusiasts.

We have two 3-bedroom cottages, 1-bedroom apartment, and spacious tent and trailer sites and provide a variety of amenities. Our summer oasis offers tranquility at its best where your family can create fantastic summer memories to last a lifetime. Sit back and enjoy your surroundings, enjoy a night-time fire while listening to the loons in the not too far distance, read by the beach, sunbathe in your lounge chair, have a nice cold beverage on your private deck, enjoy motorized water sports on one of the calmest parts of the lake, take a nice refreshing swim or just float in the lake.

There are many nearby attractions including Algonquin Provincial Park, hiking trails such as the famous Barron Canyon, golf courses (this one is in Killaloe, just a short drive away), Bonnechere Caves, Wilderness Tours, River Run, Owl Rafting, museums, horseback riding, ATV trails, ATV tours, bike tours and more!

We strive to maintain a quiet, family atmosphere while providing quality, affordable prices and excellent customer service.

Contact us to see if our campground is the right fit for you and your family.

Your hosts,
Todd and Scherry Sylvestre
