  • Fantastic running/hiking trails. Since Parks have free admission Monday through Thursday I've taken advantage of a few Parks close to home. They have a day use area which is fantastic for families.  more »
  • We went camping for the 2nd time to Killbear. This is an exceptional park. A lot of things to do, a lot. They have a lot of sandy beaches to choose from so it does not get too busy or too crowded.....  more »
  • If you enjoy spending time with loud, rude, foul folks then this is the place for you. Worst camping experience ever. Site was a HILL with no level land. Pitiful. There are much nicer Parks to...  more »
  • We had a really amazing 4 days here. All the sites are spacious some bigger then others. We had electrical hook up in beaver dams with a 3 min walk to the bathroom and beach. The park is well maintained and clean and the bathrooms are as well. The trails are amazing and really fun and sunsets are gorgeous!
  • Monday brought back wonderful memories, this being our fourth visit to Killbear in thirty years. Albeit our most comfortable visit. Past visits have included tents, children, pets. This year we've graduated to a mobile home and our children have brought their own and overtook a camp site near to us with a much larger tent then we ever owned. We are next the the lake and both have the luxury of hydro on site. Washrooms are a stone's throw an fresh water is almost as close. The weather is cooperating and the camps guests are not rowdy, much different than what we remember from our twenties. All in all a good choice for families to enjoy summer while it's here.
  • Really nice place. Great beaches and fun times. The reason its 4 stars and not 5 is cause of the staff that is enforcing the rules so much that it degrades the fun. You guys should also look into having a beer at the beach. I know it sounds weird to drink beer at a beach but trust me it's great!
  • Great place for camping. Be sure to read the rules and regulations and inform those with you of them. We got fined and weren't fully aware of the regulations while staying at the park. Our fine was given without a warning and took us completely by surprise. Overall, it was a good place for groups to camp.
  • Lovely place to visit/stay during summer and early fall. Very big park with nice beaches, rocks, hiking and biking paths and different options to stay in. Plenty of drinking water supplies and convenient washrooms. Park is well maintained and staff is friendly and helpful. Convenient stores are right outside of the park with some food/ice supply and canoe/kayak rental options. Need to plan your visit ahead as sites are usually booked in far in advance.
