Hi All, anybody ever been to this park? Heading there next August and hoping it as awesome as everybody says it is. Any input would be great. Thanks.

Getting Pumped for Next Year Already!

Yup! Pretty nice. Great place to walk the shoreline rocks along Georgian Bay. Very scenic. We really enjoyed it.

Our favorites would be Bon Echo, Lake of Three Rivers (Algonquin Prov Park), Presquile, Kill Bear and Killarney.

Hey Dave, we are torn between Bon Echo and Killbear actually. You suggest Bon 1st? Slightly further for us but not significantly. I'd say the biggest thing for me is waterfront sites and paddling. Seems Killbear has more waterfront and Bon has better paddling. Thanks again for your insight.

Yes no waterfront sites at Bon Echo. Some are near however and carrying a canoe or kayak are doable. Smaller bodies of water (lakes) at Bon Echo to versus Killbear which is right on Georgian Bay so more of an open water experience. Can't go wrong with either actually. Lots of photos of each area on Google images.

Yep, have looked at more pics than I can count for both and still torn. Your 1st hand knowledge is more helpful and appreciated. Thanks again and maybe my wife can just pick. Yeah right. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Gotta say that place was awesome!! Having everyday in the 80s and sunny at the end of August didn't hurt but we loved it. Added to our favorites and we will be going back often. If ur in the states, make the trip.

You mean Killbear right? It is pretty nice. You'll have to add Bon Echo to the list next!

Yep Killbear. Wildlife viewing and beaches top notch and great paddling for "big water". And my kids and I loved the highest point on the jumping rock. Truly loved the park

Glad you liked Killbear. We like it a lot too. Personally, I prefer Killbear over Bon Echo. :-) Presqui'ile and Charleston Lake are faves too. And Algonquin, though I am partial to Pog.

Yep, Algonquin is one of my go to places, too. Just got back from a 4 day Algonquin trip on that warn stretch we just had. Man, that place is beautiful in the Fall. Though I'm partial to Rock / Coon Lake. I prefer the off the main highway campgrounds.

I think this park is one of the best in Ontario.As with all popular parks,it is going to be noisier in the summer.If you like it really quiet,try going in early September. The waters are still warm,even if the nights can be a little cool.
