This campground has beautiful sites right on Georgian Bay. Beautiful clean water perfect for swimming, fishing, kayaking. Sunsets on the Bay are one of the best. Be aware that this park is called Killbear for a reason. You will likely see or hear of bear visits and the chipmunks, though cute, can be pests. We have camped here on and... More

Been to killbear about 7 times. Camped 12 days at Lighthouse route on a premium water site which I love because it's like having your own beach and also great for kayaking. Have also stayed at the staff quarters during the winter when the park is closed and that is a totally different wonderful experience. First 5 nights there was... More

It's not nearly as big as Killarney but if you don't want to drive for another 2 hours but still camp around Georgian bay, Killbear is perfect for you. The park has a lot of things to offer: clean beaches, well maintained trails and massive campsites. We stayed on blind bay campground near the beach. The electrical outlet is conveniently... More

We just spent a day inside the park. We loved it. We did all the hikes (they were gorgeous). The rock formations were fun to climb (and amazing photo ops).

We spent 7 days at the Lighthouse campground. We were on site 1486. Great site lots of room for our large tent, car and boat. Loved the park but my only complaint was the comfort station. Even though it was cleaned daily I think a better job could have been done. (I have worked in a provincial park in the... More

My wife and I have been staying at various campsites in Killbear; between Blind Bay, Granite Saddle and Lighthouse we like Lighthouse the most. Beach wise we would normally go either to Harold Point or Granite Saddle

This being our forst ever camping experience with small children, needless to say that we were a bit nervous, however this place and the staff are amazing. Everyone is so welcoming and ready to answer any questions, from bear proofing your site to hiking trails. First night we were there the par rangers were doing their patrols at night and... More

Had fun despite the pouring rain, fire ban and parking my trailer on a giant ant colony. Seeing all the dad bods jumping off the cliffs was a bit traumatic for my children. Biking, kayaking and visitor center were great.

We booked a site that we know would not afford much privacy or great views, but we wanted to stay at the park because we were aware that the park itself had beautiful trails, granite rock and shoreline, and so much more to see. We camped in Lighthouse point, which was mostly families with children. It was somewhat noisy, being... More

A small group of us went to visit Killbear for the day and had a blast. The water was clear and the perfect temperature. We swam out to the rock island but be careful because it's extremely slipper since the rocks underwater are slimy. There is a little part a short walk from the beach where you can jump off... More
