Killarney Provincial Park in Ontario is still a well kept secret.
This remote region on the northern tip of Georgian Bay on the east end of Lake Huron is worth a visit all year round, but if you want to have it mostly to yourself you should go there in the fall.
Then the summer vacationers are gone and you will have the lakes, the bay and the rocky hills mostly to yourself - not counting the odd black bear or white tailed deer that looms in the background or jumps out of the bushes along the road. It's easy to spot them around here since they are not very shy.
Killarney has been one of the favourite haunts of the famous group of Canadian painters, the Group of Seven. This is why some of the views may appear familiar.
It is a great place to hike, to canoe or kayak or simply to relax. And it is one of those places where you can see how lakes turn into bogs and bogs turn into solid land. Also look out for the big rocks that are scattered everywhere. Chances are that they are remnants of the last ice age. The huge icefield dropped them there when it retreated to the north. They are also easy to recognize since their color is distinctively different from the surrounding granite.
A great place to stay overnight is the Killarney Mountain Lodge where they offer excursions for everybody: experienced kayakers can spend the day out on the lake and not so sporty guests can choose the motorboat for an excursion with a hike to a nice viewpoint of the area. It's also a good place to get away from it all. There is no TV in the rooms and no WiFi either. So leave your electronics at home and listen to the peace and quiet of the beautiful surroundings.
