This campground is run by Ontario Parks. Note that we camped on the last weekend of their fall season. Although campsites are dense and close together at the Kilcoursie campground in Killbear Park, on this weekend there were few campers widely spread out. We had lots of privacy but we found the other campers very friendly.

The washrooms were kept very clean. Our campsite had 2 picnic tables, a fireplace, electrical hookups and beautiful views of Georgian Bay.

There are great trails to walk in this park and we have walked one of them 2 years ago, exploring the marvelous Canadian shield, which is all around this park. This park also contains gorgeous white sand beaches on fresh water.

It’s a nice park. Lots of trails to walk, and activities to do. Very friendly staff. There’s a couple stores near the park to get any supplies you forgot. Must see the kill bear tree if visiting. It may not be around much longer. There’s a couple minor issues, but will not effect my 5 stars, just something to be aware of. In the light house camp ground, if you have a larger trailer, the sights can be a little hard to get in, and roads are pretty narrow. But still a nice area of the park. Boat launch also in this area. Second issue is there’s only 2 dumping areas in the 1 dump area for the whole park. There can be a line up at leaving day. Other then this very quiet family friendly park. Well worth the visit. Also parry sound is only about 20 minutes from the park.

Visited the park in July and was happy we got to visit the park.
The sunsets at the park are beautiful.

Park is good, campsites are very close, sunsets are beautiful, trails are pretty straightforward and have great lookout spots. Facilities are well maintained, staff are friendly and helpful.

Our campsite was nice w/ soft ground, tree distance were longer - so need to plan better for hammocks.

Trails visited:
a) Sunset Rock - visited through beaver dam campground - best sunset photos possible, probably one of the best ones in Ontario - gets busy for sunset
b) Lookout Point trail - 3.5km loop - takes 75 mins w/ 10 lookout - nice even trail, few rocks, small boardwalk, shaded trail w/ beautiful lookout on Georgian bay.
c) Harold Point Viewing rocks - good spot, trees are beautiful w/ the slant and made for nice photos - similar lookout to sunset rocks
d) Granite Saddle Beach - feels like small private beach, very close to parking, water is cold since its shaded on 3 sides
e) Lighthouse Point - good spot for pictures and great for sunset views - its 0.5 km trail - takes 10mins to get to lighthouse point - gets busy for sunset

Decent camping experience, became better due to the beautiful sunsets.

Great park. Love the lighthouse hiking trails. Camping areas looked great as do the beaches. The interpretative center was very good and informative of the area. The scenery is great. All trails and parks are well signed. A great place to relax!

We visited on a beautiful fall day with our dog and walked all 3 trails. Lookout Point Trail is the longest hike, followed by Twin Point Trail and the shortest is the Lighthouse Point Trail.

This Provincial Park is absolutely magnificent. Can not say enough great things about the hiking trails, the beach, the water, the facilities (bathrooms and showers very clean) and overall the entire park being so amazing. Husband has always hunted and camped, but I am new at camping, and embracing this experience 100%. Perhaps Covid-19 and my age has allowed me to open up to appreciating all that nature has to offer. Did travel with another couple, they had a trailer on their own site and we had a tent on a site closer to the beach and water. We are so lucky to have such beautiful and well organized provincial parks. Looking forward to coming back for sure.

A friend recommended this park and I am glad they did. We enjoyed two short hiking trails that were beautiful. We tried out two beaches that were both lovely. In between we enjoyed looking through the visitors’ centre. It all made for a wonderful day and I will definitely go back. Definitely worth the drive.

First time to’ Killbear Provincial Park. This is a very large park. Campsite was large and Sandy which was good for drainage when it rained. Excellent cell service. We were able to hotspot so my husband could work.
The hiking trails are great and the 6 km bike/ walking trail was fantastic. Especially loved lighthouse point
Shower facility and bathrooms were great
