Killbear Provincial Park, Ontario

Killbear Provincial Park, Ontario

I had experience in camping in Russia and I can say that camping in Canada is a different story.

It’s super comfortable, relax and fun. What do I mean by comfortable? You literally have everything close by you camp zone, including showers, washrooms, and laundry service.

We were a group of 10 people (which is, even more, fun). Personally, I would recommend you to camp at “Killbear Provincial Park” is a provincial park located on Georgian Bay in the Parry Sound District of Ontario, near the town of Nobel. It’s a well-maintained area with lots of things to do: such as hiking different trails (from easy to moderate level), jumping from the cliff (oh god, it was one of the highlights of the year), swimming, canoeing, cycling, and fishing. The season at Killbear park starts at the end of the May till the end of October. It takes around 3 hours drive from Toronto in order to get there.

We have booked the camp one month ahead because it was labour weekend in Canada, the time is really popular for people to get away from the cities.  We arrived around 9 pm on Friday evening and stayed there till Sunday. Travel tips: Please make sure to read all the rules at the park, because we did not lol. One day we went hiking and left all the food on the table(camping preparation level 100), once we returned, we got a ticket of $130 for leaving food unprotected. I won’t say anything about equipment (tent, air mattress, sleeping bag, food..), it’s all up to you, however, bring lots of warm cloth, because it gets really cold at night. Also, we tried to fish at Parry Sound, unfortunately, we didn’t catch any fish that day 🙁

Here are some photos for you in collaboration with one of my friends Vasyl Yarish and his amazing Olympus retro camera #35mm. (check out his Instagram profile).

The cliff jumping point , takes around 30 minutes hike from Lighthouse camp where we stayed.

I want to say thank you for the great weekend to our group, amazing Vasyl’s birthday celebration, and to the raccoon, who stole the banana from out tent lol.

Thank you for reading!
