  • Beautiful hike. Some easy spots and some a bit more difficult but we are in our late fifties and survived. Great panoramic views at the top. Wish we had time to do one more hike before we went. Awesom...  more »
  • Overnight in the yurt was an experience. Surprisingly hot in October, thanks to the good heating. Bunk beds located through more, but all right. 2 x spotted a black bear. The rules are clear and clearly, if you keep it, nothing should be done. Toilets and showers typical campsite. Maybe a little old. After Thanksgiving, the water is shut off. Great starting point for hiking, canoeing, etc. Help Outfitters. Indian summer this year late and with little red coloring. The Georgian Lake Park Office of 10Minuten drive in the town of Killarney. If you want to not even cook or fuel/air for the tire / an aunt Emma needs charging.

  • Killarney remains one of my favourite parks in Ontario. I've visited many times for both tenting and back-country trips. This time we decided to try out a yurt so I thought it would be useful to provi...  more »

  • One the the most beautiful provincial parks on Ontario and a relatively good location for darksky lovers. We were lucky enough to see the northern lights during our stay in late May. Campsites closer to the lake have the best views but be aware of black flies especially in the spring. The park is well managed and has all the necessary amenities. Washrooms are clean and there are plenty of showers. I'd recommend going for one of the hiking trails as well as trying canoeing/kayaking.
  • Awesome Provincial Park. This park is roughly 5 hours from Toronto which makes it a little more quiet than the other provincial parks we have visited in the past. It is nice to enjoy the outdoors without running into so many other people. The last time we visited the park we did get the opportunity to see some wildlife including a black bear. The campgrounds overall are good- 7/10. The terrain is rugged which presents for challenging yet rewarding hikes. Before or after your visit to the park you can visit the Killarney East Light House and grab some world class fish and chips from Herbert Fisheries.
  • First time on the backpacking trail. Definitely a good challenge. The place is amazing with great views. Campsites are clean and free of garbage. But could use a bit more proper markers for the trail path
  • Great place for day hikes and to explore a bit of wilderness. The staff is very helpful and the nature gorgeous. Much more pleased than in Sauble beach, for instance.
  • This place is amazing, really stunning. If you ever have the opportunity to camp on OSA or Killarney Lakes, you should do it. Hike up "The Crack" trail for an amazing view of the hills and Georgian Bay.
