Did You Know? – Killarney History

Did you know that A.Y. Jackson, A.J. Casson and Franklin Carmichael were so captivated by this area with its granite coastline, clear sapphire lakes, and inspiring pine forest, that they convinced the Ontario government to make it a provincial park?

These men were three of the Group of Seven. Thanks to them, Killarney Provincial Park has remained essentially unchanged for almost a hundred years.

But the government has made some changes: How about overnighting in a structure that had its beginnings over 3,000 years ago in Central Asia? Yurts, round tent-like structures, are located at six different campsites throughout the park. What a unique way to spend a few days hiking, canoeing, and fishing in Killarney, or one of the many Ontario provincial parks equipped with Yurts.

Just another reason to Go Fish in Ontario.
