I love Killbear. It is a beautiful park. The beaches are gorgeous, and the ammenities are excellent. I will say, however, that sadly, this park has become extremely intolerant of groups. I've been visiting Killbear since I was a child. Last summer, during our family...More

I find this park to be the best provincial park in Ontario. I've been going to Killbear since I was a child and can't possibly say enough great things about it. The park staff are always helpful. This place is truly the best!

The park was clean and the sites were not too close together. Hiking was pleasant with trails that were acceptable for novice campers.

Light house is a great spot. Some of the sites even back onto the water. There are some open areas especially now that the emerald ash borer caused a lot of the canopy to be removed in recent years. Try for the group camping... More
