We were on a cruise and docked in Parry Sound. We took a beautiful bus ride to Killbear. The scenery was just breathtaking. The Georgian Bay is large enough to be one of the Great Lakes.

Last weekend we decided to take advantage of one of the last warm weekends of summer. We headed out to Killbear Provincial Park. At the entrance of the park the trails have had the trees cut down and appears a bit patchy and was not as green as I had expected it to be. This is a stunning Park that... More

Killbear is a great park, lots of different campsites to choose from as well. The park is in a bit of transition after the cutting of Beech trees due to disease with the Lighthouse Point campground getting the brunt of the operation. The vegetation is growing back though. Great biking and walking trail. Perfect for early morning kayaking and canoe... More

The park has great beaches, a fun place for family and boaters. You can beach a boat here or anchor out front. The boat can be beached. Great places to swim and dive from,..high rocks to dive or jump from. We did not camp here just a day trip. The place is huge in length.

Ok Ontario Parks systems if you are reading this it is time to wake up. The location is amazing, the wildlife in the park is amazing, 3 deer and one fox seen in a 1 night stay. However my dissatisfaction comes from one thing the comfort stations are disgusting. The mens one in particular as I can speak for that... More

Our longtime favourite. We've been going here since the kids were in diapers...15 years or so. Clean beaches, clear water, great trails, plenty of wildlife and decent washroom facilities. Unfortunately the boaters also like coming to stay at kilcoursie bay. This is always a difficult area of the park to get a site. The beach is sheltered and great for... More

I was at Killbear for a one-night stay when I was a teenager and I remember not thinking too much of the park at that time. Recently a friend and I had the opportunity to spend a couple nights at Killbear and I wish we could have stayed for 3 more! It is a HUGE park with a variety of... More

This park is one of the physically most spectacular parks for all family based campers. The beaches are great and the campsites are beautiful. However, we have been frustrated twice in the last 5 years because of noisy, rude and ignorant campers adjacent to us, making noise until the early hours of the morning. This year park staff came by... More
