Killarney Park – Backcountry Canoe Camping Trip
To take a canoe trip anywhere into Northern Ontario is to disconnect yourself from civilization. Nothing will make you appreciate Mother nature in all her beauty more than travelling by Canada’s most iconic and earliest form of transportation. To say that Canada would not be what it is today without the canoe is an huge understatement.
Killarney Provincial Park epitomizes the rugged wilderness of the Ontario Northland. Considered by many to be one of Ontario’s Crown Jewels. The white quartzite ridges that dominate the topography are the remnants of a massive range of mountains that would have once dwarfed the Rocky Mountains. The rugged landscape is stunningly beautiful. It was a mecca for several of the renowned Group of Seven, Canadian artists, and some of their most famous works were painted there. Much of the credit for the Killarney receiving a designation of Provincial Park status can be attributed to them.
It is those gleaming white ridges, dotted with stands of towering Red Pines and pristine sapphire lakes that make the Killarney landscape so distinctive and a paddler’s paradise.
Come with us on an adventure into the Ontario wilderness and take home memories to last a lifetime.
