Very beautiful park which is extremely busy in the summer making it hard to book a site. To solve this problem, I reserved for the first week in Sept after Labour Day. Our site was large and private, surrounded by trees and shrubs, with a ravine behind us. No tv reception nor internet access. We attended an evening program at the Amphitheatre and enjoyed it. Lots of deer in the park, heard loons & owls, spotted a Pilleated woodpecker, and also saw a black bear in Blind Bay campground (closed to campers at this time). We went on all 5 trails in the park -- absolutely wonderful and the scenery can't be beat, just like a "Group of Seven" painting. Wish they had better signage for the "Twin Point Trail" as we only saw a picnic area sign and missed it the first time around. Great visitor centre but no camp store within the park to buy a few groceries. All in all, a terrific place to visit, especially in the off season when it's quiet, peaceful, and the leaves have started to change colour. We camped at Killbear Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Killbear Provincial Park boasts over 880 campsites in 7 campground areas. As with all Ontario Provincial Parks, electricity is the only hook-up offered. The campground areas with electrical sites are "Harold Point Campground", "Beaver Dams Campground" and "Kilcoursie Bay Campground". Overall, the campsites at Killbear Provincial Park are generally good. The Ontario Parks website gives pretty accurate descriptions regarding sites especially in terms of privacy, pad slope etc. I found the sites to be generally level. They are mostly dirt and sand which does make things messy. All sites are generally treed and afford at least partial shade. I didn't see any open ones- which is great for privacy, not so great if television reception is a priority. Given how many sites there are at Killbear Provincial Park, I found it to be overall pretty quiet. The campground staff are certainly a presence as they routinely drive through. Each campground area has it's own beach on Georgian Bay. There is a recreation trail suitable for walking and cycling that runs the length of the park, as well there are many other hikes you could partake in. I enjoyed our stay at Killbear Provincial Park.Rattlesnakes. Killbear Provincial Park is the busiest location in the province that has a significant rattlesnake population. It should be noted, before you get all worked up about this fact- only 4 visitors have EVER been bitten by a Massasauga Rattlesnake. Treatment typically involves a hospital stay but no one has ever died. We camped at Killbear Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

This is an extremely popular park and it was August. Need I say more? We were in the Kilcoursie Bay loop. The sites were close together and not level. The little access roads were just dirt tracks and with so many vehicles parked on them, difficult to traverse. There didn't seem to be any restriction on how many camping units or vehicles could be on a site, and there were ropes hung all over the place with tarps on them. We have stayed in many great Provincial Parks over the years but this one was just not up to par. We had planned to stay several days but moved on. We camped at Killbear Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Terrific campground. The best in Ontario, Again it is expensive for what you do not get. But the sheer size of the campground makes it worth it. We camped at Killbear Provincial Park in a Motorhome.
