Stay a full week at the end of July. Great park, lots to see. Excellent beaches and scenery. Some issues with bears at adjacent campsites despite warning signs and postings to lock up food in vehicles. Loved it and will definitely return.

We stayed on site 31, Kilcoursie campground. Actually booked sites on this campground for years, and was happy to come back again and again. This year staying in this campground became a nightmare. Without any notification on time of booking or later, park changed rules for motor boats. As result all Kilcoursie bay area was taken over by motorized boats of different size. They were parked 5 meters from the beach, going back and force; distance between them was 5-10 meters. All water front was in anchors and ropes. My husband cut his feet badly by hidden in sand underwater anchor. It’s not safe for kids anymore. If you check information on site http://www.ontarioparks.com/english/killb-multiple.html, there is nothing mentioned that this beach cannot be used by campers anymore or this bay is designated area for motorized boats. Also if you will check map, designated area is limited and not in front of beach. We complained to park authorities verbally and in writing but they told that they can do nothing.

we and another two families stayed at the park during the August 1st long weekend. The sandy, clean,shallow beaches were great for all the kids( 4-10yrs old) and it was not crowded at all! The Bay and rocky cliffs are beautiful and the sunset is breathtaking! We also enjoyed the hiking and biking trails in the park, and we were lucky to see deer and fox! We also had a big black bear( 400 lbs++) visited our site twice on the first night. He ate a bag of marshmallow and a bottle of cooking oil! The camp office needs to remind people that there are bears in the park, and all food and coolers have to be kept in their cars! It is a great camping and we love to go back there next summer!

The place is not clean, small campsites, washrooms are discusting !!! but most of all the staff is not friendly at all !!! and they double charge people !!!! firset you pay online when you reserve a camp and then they charge you again when you arrive there !!!! If you want to sleep 24/7 and be alone its the perfect place to go to !!!!!!!

I have been camping at Killbear Provincial Park since I was a young child. Many happy family memories were created for me there and I plan to continue this tradition once I start a family of my own. I make a strong effort to get back every year to see the great wonder of Georgian Bay; perfect sunsets, the breathtaking Canadian shield formations and wildlife galore. I do prefer to stay in the late summer or early fall as of late, as there is less of a crowd. However, if you can make a point of visiting this very special place in Georgian Bay, you will not be disappointed.

We camped at Killbear for the very first time last July, for a total of 4 days. Our site was private and well kept, lots of room for our two big tents, car and shelter. We are big hikers and found the hiking trails to be slightly disappointing and boring - nothing really special about them and most were very short. The beaches were great and the scenery is gorgeous - especially at Harold Point during the sunset - the rocky cliffs are beautiful. We found the park to be overly crowded anywhere off the campsite and most of these other individuals consisted of large groups of young people in their late teens and early twenties. It was noisy at night, intoxicated people yelling and shouting, so sleep wasn't easily obtained which was a big drawback for us since we were camping with a young child. I would definitely go back, we had a great trip and made lots of wonderful memories, but it's not as amazing as I had expected.

Excellent site, fairly private, big enough for a pop up and tent, right beside beach and sites away from comfort station. 2 deer visited our site and raccoons too. AMAZING beach! So sandy and big. Great for kids!

My daughter and myself have been camping at Killbear for 8 years every July for a two week holiday and I can not say enough about this Provincial Park. My daughter has met many friends over the years and still seems them every year. The beach is wonderful at Kilcoursie and we always enjoy our two week stay. Yes, two weeks seems to be a long time but it is never enough for us. Every child should experience this opportunity to visit such a wonderful campground. The beauty of the rocks and trees are breath-taking. The kids really love the big rocks, turtle pond and the mud bath. If you have never been on vacation at Killbear-you should atleast try it once in your life and experience the beauty of this Provincial Park. All staff and campers are really friendly. It is stress free and the best place for a vacation..... Alice and Katelyn Montreal Quebec 2008

Love the park! The Park has a great beach and beautiful views! Most of the sites are pretty good - spacious and clean. The only draw back is that the park is BUSY. Its very hard to book a good site and the park is always full. Not a place to go for a quiet get away!

I have been going to Kilbear since a tiny girl. I cannot get over how breathtakingly beautiful it is. The sunsets, the beaches, the spacious campsites. It is truly a heavenly place.

Best provincial park we have been to so far in Ontario. This is a beautiful park with beautiful sunsets where you can take your coffee and sit on the rocks to watch the sun go down. The beach is terrific and spacious. They have excellent bike trails. You may even be lucky and see a black bear like we did in bear season. Remember to keep your food tightly contained and adhere to the park rules.
