Forget about thinking out of the box. Get out of the box and get outside to Killbear Park. Just an absolutely beautiful place to enjoy nature's beauty...ashore or in the water. Every season is spectacular here.

In Parry Sound for weekend. Took a drive out to Killbear and went for a walk around the park. Well along the beach, on the ice. What a beautiful day to experience the quiet beauty of the bay. Spectacular. Only a few other families doing the same.

I try to camp here every year. I usually go for day trips since I live in the area. This park is spectacular. But it's also extremely busy !!! Especially on the long weekends. You basically have to book a site 6 months in advance or you're basically not getting in. The cliffs for jumping into the lake are at... More

Spectacular iconic Georgian Bay scenery, pristine water - naturally unsalted of course - fabulous beaches, boating, swimming, canoeing, fishing (and XC skiing, snowshoeing) and all within a couple of hours of Toronto. Killbear is quite simply one of Ontario's most beautiful parks. And in recent years much has been done to improve some rather antiquated camping facilities. It now has... More

killarney is sooooo beautiful! But i want to tell you, beware of Ontario parks reservations. I had to cancel my booking and was charged a $70 cancel fee! Totally unreasonable!! New York state parks only charge $18 max cancel fee. As if us Ontarians are not taxed enough to death! So I will never

We purchased a fifth wheel on September 21, 2016 and wanted to get as much camping in as we could. My daughter and her family also decided to purchase a trailer the 3rd of October. We all decided at the last minute to go fall camping at Killbear Provincial Park (section; Beaver Dam) on October 22. I had the weekend... More

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!...
