We shared a site with another couple and found that all of the sites in our campground were very large, private, with big old trees and very well maintained. Facilities were excellent and a short walk from any campsite. We made our way to the lookout trail and the lighthouse trail - both were moderate to easy with excellent views... More

For the rest of the world, Killbear remains one of Canada's lesser-known parks. For first-timers, especially those who are leaving a big city, a nice surprise awaits. The park is a perfect microcosm of all the best that the Canadian near north has to offer. For shutterbugs, there are countless islets with pines trees atop sloping granite shores, plus wildlife...

I have been visiting Killbear since 1991 and to this day, I have only ever missed one year when I did not camp at this park. I absolutely love it. If you are looking for a great Muskoka experience, this is the one you need to try. I have read other people's comments about the park's sites and noise. To... More

The west side of the park faces Georgian Bay. It has soft sand which extends far out from shore. The water is crystal clear and very comfortable for swimming. The water is also soft on the skin. This is a pleasant spot on a sunny summer afternoon.

My boyfriend and I spent the day at Killbear. We did hiked the Lookout Point trail which is not very challenging and suitable for families. The view is lovely at the top. I loved the beach - it wasn't too busy and had good sand.

Killbear is a fairly large provincial park near Parry Sound. It has great sandy beaches, nature trails and camping. We did not camp but enjoyed our visit to the park.

We tented in the Lighthouse Point campground for a few days and enjoyed our getaway. It's a large park so lots of places to roam. We did some hiking, canoeing (no rentals in park, however there are a couple stores just outside the park). We brought our dog but unless we drove we were limited to the campground. Signs didn't...

My family stayed in a cottage resort in Carling, so we came up to Killbear every day for a day trip. Plenty of wildlife to be seen! The trails have amazing views, but the only long one is lookout point which is 3.5 km. The beaches are nice, but often packed with people. I recommend avoiding the day use beach... More

I've camped at Killbear several times since 2006 but haven't been since the tree cull in 2012. We generally always stay in Lighthouse and have had many many amazing extended vacations in the park. It's still one of the best provincial parks but your enjoyment will depend on which site you select. We booked very late and our site was... More
