  • Outstanding view with both the small lakes and then the big lake. Cool white cliffs with some challenging climbing.  more »
  • This park, especially in the fall is simply magical. The hike to the "crack" is not for the faint of heart; however, if you are in low to moderate shape, the hike is more than doable. There are of cou...  more »
  • 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 »

  • One of the best park. Amazing Trails especially The Crack and active Wildlife. Don't miss The Crack (Spectacular View). It is almost Hard but it is worth seeing it.
  • Everyone who lives in Ontario should make time sometime in their lives to visit this provincial park. There are dozens of different canoe routes, hundreds of campsites, a bunch of hiking trails and a ton of lakes to swim in. The lakes are crystal clear (some of the clearest water in Ontario) and a wonder to swim in. The hiking trails are beautiful yet challenging as the quartzite ridges are steep and very slippery. "The Crack" i'd say is the most popular trail.
  • Camped here this past weekend and it was absolutely beautiful. Stayed in site #60, privacy wasn't too great but I didn't mind having close neighbors if it meant having more people on bear patrol! Visitor center, comfort stations, and overall park amenities were well maintained. We the famous "crack" trail and it was well worth it for the view. Make sure you have shoes with good grip because the bouldering bits get slippery and spraining your ankle with one wrong step can easily happen. Would definitely make the 4 hour trek here again!
  • OSA is such a stunning lake. Pick up a 'Jeff's Map' from Killarney outfitters & get into it! Beware the Ontario parks' reservation staff who are based outside of the park & have no idea what they're doing. We were told our reservations had campsite names- that happened to be the same names of other lakes in the park we weren't visiting, but in fact the campsites were booked, despite our efforts to be as clear and concise as possiblr, in the most ridiculous of places!
  • I have been in the Killarney provincial park three times. Each time brought back wonderful memories. What a great place to go!
