My favourite Provincial Park

Killbear is a very special park. Fantastic water for swimming and diving, good hiking, great for cycling. It offers activities for kids in a beautiful setting.

Beautiful Trails for biking and walking. We tried to reserve a somewhat private area but it was still pretty busy. It rained a lot when we went but we still went for hikes..they had some wooden planks built on most of the trails which is great for people who have mobility issues but who still want to enjoy a hike!...

We visited 8 provincial parks during a two week tour of northern Ontario - I think Killbear was the most southerly and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit, will definitely be going back!

Majestic beauty on Georgian Bay........If you are looking for a private beach or a crowd either way this is the place to go. Book early for a camp ground or just visit for the day! Families love this place.

I love Killbear! Mostly because it has the most beautiful beaches I've visited in Ontario. There are so many! There are even pet friendly beaches which are very hard to come by. The views are gorgeous and the hikes are well maintained. Be careful if camping. We saw three bears the night we were there and lots of raccoons but... More

This is such a great park. It has the rock of the Cdn. Shield and yet a couple sand beaches too. There are trails through the woods as well over stone and all are clearly marked. It's a big park and you can certainly make a day of it hiking around the water perimeter. We saw deer grazing so we... More

I was travelling alone, enjoying the fall colours. Drove out to lighthouse point and walked the short trail to the end and then found the protected beach with a picnic table where I was able to set up for some plein air painting.

Fantastic place to camp! We stayed here for 5 nights in August and 3 nights again in September at Georgian and Harold Point campgrounds. This is definitely wilderness camping so make sure you are prepared. Bears are active in this park so you must ensure you bear proof properly and bring some kind of protection just in case (air horn,... More
