Winter in Killarney
While skiing or snowshoeing the Park's many trails, you'll experience the beauty of winter in Killarney. Take the time to listen to the birds call or the hooves of a near-by deer passing through a brush. Everyone is welcome to join us for the annual winter weekend during the Family Day weekend in February.
Killarney Provincial Park has six yurts available year-round. These eight-sided, tent-like structures are mounted on a wooden deck floor. They offer electric heat, making them a great option for winter in the Park. For more information, visit the Ontario Parks website.
Permits are required in the off-season and can be purchased from the Park office. If staff are not available, please self-register at the kiosk.
Travel over ice is not recommended. Your safety is ultimately your responsibility. If you do plan to cross lakes, check for the latest ice conditions with staff. Exercise caution near creeks, narrows, dams and other areas of moving water.
Be prepared for severe cold temperatures. Temperatures can get as low as -30 C. Bring proper clothing, a sleeping bag and other equipment for these conditions. Carry a survival kit with you at all times.
