Visiting the Park
With its quartzite ridge tops, turquoise lakes and pristine forests teeming with plant and animal life, Killarney Provincial Park is known as the crown jewel of the Ontario Parks system. It's a wilderness wonderland with many trails and canoe routes leading to panoramic views and secluded lakes.
Killarney Park has one beautiful campground located at the George Lake access point. It is a quiet, family-oriented spot with a comfort station. In summer, you can swim at the beaches and access the many short hiking trails. In winter, you can cross-country ski and snowshoe or go for a winter hike. Throughout the year, you can also participate in our projects and programs.
Camping overnight in the wilderness of Killarney Provincial Park is an amazing experience. You can paddle or hike to your destination in the Park. Interior canoe trippers have a choice of over 40 interconnected lakes to paddle, and backpackers have a choice of 45 hike-in sites along.
There is access to Killarney's backcountry at Bell Lake, Johnnie Lake, Carlyle Lake and George Lake. The Chikanishing Creek provides access to Georgian Bay. The Killarney Lakelands and Headwaters area is easily accessed at Willisville (south of Espanola).
