    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.

    Really good brewery on the way to camping / canoeing in central / northern Ontario. Highway 400 is at least 4 lanes, divided, all the way from Toronto to north of Parry Sound. Three or four exits north of Parry Sound, the 400 goes down to 2 lanes and turns back into Hwy 69, just north of the exit for Killbear Provincial Park (which is Hwy 559). The first road after the exit for Killbear is Woods Road, you take that left and then a very quick right, proceed down that road for a short distance, and there's Norse Brewery. Who knew? Almost no advertising on the highway. Easy to miss. You snooze, you lose. Great lunches and beer/ale. If you're going camping at Killbear and want some beer to take with you, this is well worth the 15 minute detour - instead of exiting at 559, go 5 minutes further to Woods Road and take the left. Your camping experience will be enhanced by savouring one of their brands around the camp-fire.

    What a fun experience…:like a Friday night kitchen party with my best friends!!! The staff are great with top notch and fun customer service. The cocktails are like none I have had before and there’s something for everyone. I met the distillers and wow, what knowledge they have of their craft.

    A dream come true for my husband, we only wish Bobby would have been visiting the day we were there to have met his #1 fan!!! We loved Betty at the receptionist desk. A fun and informative visit and I especially loved learning about Bobby Orr's dedicated community service. A hockey legend and great role model.

    We probably visited when the gardens were not at their peak but it was still lovely. We opted to have lunch at one of the picnic tables and climbed the lookout tower afterwards. If you’re not fond of heights or don’t have the capacity to get to the top, you can still get amazing views by climbing one level.
    If you have an EV there’s a charger on site.

    A bit smaller that I expected, but the view from the tower was spectacular. Just sitting in the garden and taking in all the smells and sounds was so worth it.

    Georgian Nordic is an absolutely wonderful place to bike and ski! Serene trails and a very welcoming community, a treasure for the Parry Sound area! If you love the outdoors, this is the place to be :)

    This cruise was very well organized. It left on time and returned on time.
    It's a family owned and run business which makes for a more personal experience.
    It's a small boat compared to the Island Queen but that's what we were looking for. There was a washroom on board and they served drinks and snacks for the 2 hr afternoon cruise.
    There were 14 customers and 3 personal on board for our cruise which made for a great experience.

    Gorgeous beach, not too deep, and well-maintained. It's very clean and not too crowded. Come for a day or for an hour, you'll love it. The view is incredible.
