Killbear Provincial Park
Nobel, Ontario, North of Parry Sound
Beginning of August
Yes at Killbear park we did have a black bear encounter! About 3 am our
first night one was searching for food around our site. Its loud
huffing, puffing, breathing, grunts and MAJOR sniffing by our tent did
us! We remained still and had no food in our tent so he moved on,
Our home for 5 days, Lighthouse Point area site #1107
site is across from the water, where we enjoyed the views.
section of Killbear has beaches. Ours was just a short walk from our
site. Great place to cool off!
are prevalent thru the park, some are friendly enough to get pretty
close for photos.
this cute fox on our way to get firewood.
Massasauga rattlesnakes are endangered, these signs are through out the
park. Hoping to decrease
their loss on the roads. 14 were killed in 2005!
Lighthouse Trail brings you to the Lighthouse! Rocks piled in this way
by people are called Inuksuk (link at bottom)
Beautiful rock at the Point Trail hike.

We were thrilled there were lots of
chipmunks around our site. And they were thrilled we brought peanuts!
It was awesome, they took them right from our hands.
Chipmunks are definitely one of the
Gorgeous sunsets of Georgian Bay. These are
from the Lighthouse Trail.
We took the Island Queen cruise thru
some of the 30,000 islands. It was a very enjoyable 3 hour trip.
The boat hold 550 passengers and departs from and returns to Parry
People have built cottages everywhere.
Some are even lucky enough to have their own little islands!
Among the many points of interest
the boat goes past
Killbear Provincial Park.
lt was interesting to see the
places from the water, that we had hiked to.
Anyone that knows us, knows we
always take lots of nature photos, here's a few...
seagull flying, was right above us when we were on the boat.
We didn't have too much trouble with mosquitoes or black flies during
our visit, probably because it was August.
Like all our camping trips, of course it rained, but only during
one night and on and off 1 day.
We would definitely recommend this Provincial Park!
