This is one of the most beautiful provincial Parks in Ontario. I went camping there in September when the weather was perfect, there were no bugs, and it wasn't too crowded.
The park is well laid out. It has beautiful beaches, beautiful trails and one of the most unique and stunning views of the very best that Ontario has to offer. It is a good 4-5 hours from Toronto- but it is well worth the drive. It is like no where else in Ontario- the Canadian Shield and pristine waters
I was completely overjoyed as I walk through the park and along the beaches. Many visitors were enjoying the waters in kayaks and on canoes. There were many people that were taking trails into the interior. I had come for the first time to check out Killarney as a potential place to camp for a week. I bought a year long pass which is a good idea because you can enter any Provincial Park for the day - It is a perfect way to look around and see if you would like to spend time. To spend a night it is around $46 - and they had no electrical sights when we visited.
Our stay was brief but I will definitely be back. It has a view and a topography unlike any that I've ever seen in my life. I can certainly see why this park is one of the world renowned Group of Seven’s inspirations.
Be forewarned that there definitely are Bears the area. But apparently there are no problem bears- that was great news to me. The Ranger came by my campsite and was about to issue me a ticket for having food on the table that was too accessible for bears.
I had taken a break from preparing my food to look at the view from the rock that overlooks the water. It was sunset and the view is stunning,
The water is clear and clean in the beach is a great place for small children to play.
I am definitely planning to go back because you need a good four or five days just to begin exploring this jewel of a park.
There are yurts available but book ahead. Another great feature of Killarney. There are stores to buy supplies if you forget to bring them and the town of Killarney is a close drive away. There you can buy freshly caught seafood, it can be smoked or raw or it can be takeaway in the form of fish and chips try out Herbert's fisheries and stroll around the marina.Herbert’s has a huge line of eager customers - so be prepared to wait- there are covered benches to sit on by the water and public washrooms as well.
There is also a kayak outfitter just outside the park in Killarney It is a great store with lots of supplies for outdoors man. Remember to bring your wallet it is very expensive. You can rent a kayak or canoe at several locations if you don't have your own.
The visitors centre is modern and full of information. The staff were friendly and helpful. We could not fit our Camper into our original site and the ranger was very helpful and pointed out a few spots that were better for large campers. He did take the time to tell me that my partner was a bad "parker"!
Bring your bikes, bring your fishing rod, bring your hiking shoes and be prepared for a wonderful stay at Killarney
