Killarney Provincial Park Backcountry Camping
Itâ€™s a Magical Place
Canada's Group of Seven were among the first artists to fall in love with Killarney.Â A. Y. Jackson and other members of the Group lobbied the Ontario government to protect Killarney and save some of those â€śbig old pine treesâ€ť.Â Killarneyâ€™s inland lakes, white quartzite ridges and much of the nearby Georgian Bay shoreline are now parkland and will remain untouched forever.Â The canoe is perhaps the finest vehicle to explore this accessible wilderness.
As Bill Mason once said, â€śit is as if God made the canoe and then set about creating a country in which it would flourish, that country was Canada.â€ť
Often called the â€ścrown jewelâ€ť of Ontarioâ€™s Park system, Killarney offers all levels of paddlers numerous canoe routes coupled with magnificent scenery.Â
