Just returned from 5 nights at Kearney Lake Campground in Algonquin Provincial Park. It was our first time to this campground. We normally go to Canisbay Bay, but selection was sparse with COVID. I wasn’t expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was quiet and well supervised. The comfort stations were open, but the showers were closed. The beaches were small and grassy, but the water was crystal clear. Good for swimming. I kayaked around the lake in about an hour, but I didn’t see any wildlife. There was a 1750m portage to Whitefish Lake, but I didn’t try it. The campground is centrally located which allowed short drives to trails, visitor centre and logging museum. If you need supplies or a treat, Lake of Two Rivers store is not that far either. Whitney is the closest town for gas and groceries. There is no camp office at Kearney, so you need to register and get wood and ice at the Pog Lake Campground Office across the road from Kearney. Pog Lake Campground is also an access point for the Old Railway Bike Trail and has better beaches and kayaking. Overall I enjoyed my visit to Kearney, but I’m thinking about trying Pog Lake next time to access the amenities there more.

The camp sites are relatively private, and there is a clean showerhouse/washroom as well as privies. We..and our dog... slept soundly and we were privileged to camp in the park where Tom Thomson painted

Kearney Lake Campground will excite your senses. This is back to nature at it's best. We saw a Moose just off the highway on the way in, viewed lots of red squirrels and had a black bear encounter in the middle of the night. Hats off to the Rangers who kept the area safe. We highly recommend the Bear Awareness Seminar which was very informative. The only downfall was that we never caught any fish. Thank you for a interesting vacation.

Overall we had a great time ! Pleasant campground very quiet went during the fireban. Saw a moose on our journey , Kearney lake was beautiful, fishing was ok. Only thing I would say to get on top of is the outhouses, I know it's an outhouse and it won't be super clean all the time but the overwhelming smell of urine was making my eyes burn everytime we had to use the washroom. Besides that our trip was fun.

This is a great campsite! Many choices to choose from to make your night enjoyable. Best thing to do prior to going is looking at the website for Algonquin Provincial Park (in this case) Kearney Lake. Once you've seen the layout of campgrounds and what's available or even non-reservable, you'll have an idea of were you'd like to stay. Some sites are first come first served basis. Try calling before heading out. I decided to head to Kearney Lake once I've known this, so best to get there early enough to grab a good site. All Reservations will have to be done at Pog Lake (just half a kilometre down) from Kearney Lake on HWY 60 coming from the West Gate. Once your in the office you can give them an idea of what you'd like. Example: privacy-good, slope-average, etc... They will be able to tell you what's available. Once you have this information drive into the Kearney campgrounds and look at the sites. Write down any other sites that may be of possibilities as well and go back to the office. You might end up getting something better then what was listed for your duration. We stayed for two nights, open sites all around us. We got lucky and had great neighbours all around us that respected quietness during the day, but if you plan on hiking and doing other adventures throughout the day it doesn't matter. Algonquin Park has calendar of events posted on there website and at the offices, great opportunities for things to do. Even if the weather isn't so cooperative. Just on HWY 60 approaching Kearney Lake from the West Gate you'll find gas station, grocery store (local store) not any chain store and a bakery. Remember to get what you need, it's not a two minute drive from Kearney Lake. Overall, great place! Have fun!!
