  • I have been coming to Killarney since before I could walk. It is one of the most incredible little places to go to in Canada, little own Ontario. The Georgian Bay inlet allows for great fishing trips, as well as be surrounded by many lakes with an incredible hiking and portaging environment. Silver Peak is a (sometimes challenging) day long portage journey, with a view worth waiting for. The people of Killarney are friendly and inviting in all corners of the quaint 500 person town. The best fish and chips money can buy, partnered with Farquars ice cream for dessert, Killarney is a stunning getaway.
  • Beautiful provincial park. Beautiful quartzite rounded hills, trails, beautiful canoeing. Good camp sites. You must preserve the water quality because it is rejuvenating from mine pollution atmospheric deposition. The views from the hills are beautiful. Saw a bear that ran away fast.
  • Lovely park, with good camping. We’ve enjoyed camping here as kids and now bring our own. There’s a good amount to do in the area. We were fortunate to have a few bear sights on our trips over the years, both on the roads and strolling throughout the park.
  • Beautiful park It was nice and quiet when we went, at the end of August/beginning of September. There were bears throughout the park though but there were no issues. They were simply present, which was honestly neat because we got a great view of some bears!
  • Back-Country Camping is amazing!! Loved the calm/clean water and clean sites. Silver Peak is worth climbing and give about 4-6 good hrs towards it.
