Ever wonder how your favourite park got its name?
For the 20th year in a row, Killarney Provincial Park is hosting its Annual Butterfly Count.
And if you’re heading to Killarney on July 14, 2018, we’d like your help!
National Indigenous Peoples Day invites us to learn more about Indigenous history, perspectives and culture, and helps us build stronger relationships rooted in mutual respect and understanding.
We’re taking the opportunity to spotlight some of the wonderful partnerships and events shared with us by Indigenous leaders and communities across Ontario:
Did you know Killarney is one of only two provincial parks with an observatory?
And the park observatory, which hosts a variety of astronomy programs throughout the summer, recently got an upgrade!
It might be feeling like summer, but June is just beginning and we’ve still got cabins and yurts available for this weekend (including yurts side by side in Algonquin)!
You’ll also find lots of electrical campsites in this week’s preview.
Scout out your ideal campsite on our Campsite Browsing/Reservation tool (including pictures of most campsites!), or check out these featured campsites (available as of noon on May 31, 2018):
Whether you’re conquering a rocky scramble or taking a leisurely stroll across a boardwalk, we’ve got the perfect trail for you.
How many of these must-see trails from around the province have you explored?
Killarney Provincial Park is home to the sparkling white La Cloche Mountains, verdant green forests and brilliant blue lakes. Visitors come to hike, paddle and camp in these beautiful surroundings.
Killarney is also a hotspot for “citizen science.” The park invites visitors to help them count things like butterflies, winter birds and that iconic northern bird with its haunting call, the Common Loon.
Calling all citizen scientists!
Grab your paddle and join us for the 22nd Annual Loon Counts at Killarney Provincial Park.

Any excuse to get back to Killarney Provincial Park is a good excuse. So when my wife Heather and I took an interest in stand-up paddleboarding, we thought it was a perfect opportunity to try something new.
Backcountry tripping with paddleboards? Sounds like a great adventure!
